I recently had my wedding at Bayview Event Center. The event coordinator on site made planning and preparing a walk in the park and helped take away any possible stress. My wedding was planned to be outside on the lake but due to Minnesota's crazy weather we decided a few hours before the wedding to move it inside. The venue did this with pleasure and no one had any idea it was supposed to originally happen outside. The service was great the food was spectacular and my guests loved the uniqueness Bayview's interior with the high ceilings and wood features! I would recommend this venue to any Brides looking for great service and a good time that family and friends will never forget!

I hadn't shot a wedding at Bayview Event Center before, and when I did this past November it was the first snow fall AND the first blizzard of the season. Ouch! The venue was gorgeous! Everything was perfect, the Lake Minnetonka room had am amazing rustic feel to it with a great view of Lake Minnetonka, and the table linens, decor, service and overall experience was just wonderful. As a wedding photographer, I depend on the reception venue to provide me with some great photo opportunities, and Bayview did not disappoint. While my photos from that wedding were published on Wedding Wire's blog, the scenery and detail that Bayview provided for the bride and groom gave me a great location to capture!
