    Amazing venue

    I have always heard how stressful the wedding planning process can be. I had the opposite experience. Blacksmith Main has been the place I have wanted my wedding for years and when I got engaged it was the only place I wanted to look. The venue is breathtaking and the staff were so accommodating to us, and so helpful in guiding us through this process. Grace was amazing to work with- it was a the best day and the perfect venue!

    July Wedding

    We were very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with The Northern Pacific Event Center, 3Cheers Hospitality and Bloom Designs for our 2020 July wedding. Grace Eberhardt at NP was extremely professional and went above and beyond in providing everything we requested when it came to renting out the space, furniture, lighting and the Bridal / Grooms suites. Sheila DeChantal at 3Cheers Hospitality was a great help in creating our menu from Prairie Bay. Her and the team did a great job in pulling together a complete package from apps, entrees, desserts and bar service, very professional! Kate Kuepers from Bloom Designs exceeded our expectations soo much from the initial meeting when providing a direction for day of look / feel based off our color pallet we provided. Kate created the most stunning arrangements and bouquet that captured the colors we requested. Our guests kept taking pictures in front of the larger arrangement and constantly commented on how beautiful the flowers were.
