    Amazing Venue for a Wedding

    It's a beautiful wedding venue! From historic buildings to beautiful outdoor views they have it all! They also have amazing food and are willing to create fun dishes. I was very impressed when they were willing to make a vegan dish for one person. I feel like they go over and beyond to help make everything go smooth.

    Buffalo Ridge Resort and Business Center's reply:

    Thank you so much Meagan. Your group was a blast to have here at Buffalo Ridge Resort. We are so glad to have assisted you on such a special day! We wish you a beautiful future!

    The venue itself is a gorgeous place to hold a wedding and/or reception. The only downside is that it's a bit expensive for the middle of nowhere in South Dakota and we had a really difficult time contacting and getting a hold of the wedding/event coordinator.

Michele Palm
Wedding/Event Coordinator

Hi! My name is Michele and, clique as it sounds on a wedding website, I LOVE WEDDINGS! I really do! I have been a wedding/event planner for just about 11 years! I am passionate about listening to what your vision is for your big day and then working for you, to make it happen! It is my goal to not only meet, but to exceed your expectation, in every aspect. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. Planning it should be a fun memory, too! And, in the end, it should be everything you had envisioned it to be! I will work hard to make that happen.

I am a Mom of 2, and Mimi to my 3 year old grandson. When I do disconnect from work, I love traveling with my daughter to Colorado, to spend time with my son’s family. I enjoy decorating, DIY projects, and crafting. I am also shamelessly addicted to HGTV and…reality tv. (The Bachelor/ Bachelorette, Survivor, and Big Brother are a few of my favs!) I am ridiculously organized and am a planner in every sense of the word. It drives my 15-year-old daughter nuts, but she’s learning! 😉

When we work together to plan your wedding, I will be available to you, listen to you, and be passionate about making every detail matter. And, we’ll have some fun along the way! I look forward to meeting you soon!

Michele
