Accommodated all that we asked for!
We had some unconventional requests but they made our dreams a reality! We wanted a cozy and laid back atmosphere but still a beautiful day! Our goal was to keep the day flowing and have the least amount of down time. We asked if we could have two sets of stages within the large event center so there would be a ceremony site as well as a head table already set up before guests arrived. This way there would be no need for tear down during cocktail hour. Our guests watched our ceremony from their dinner tables and it worked AMAZING!Sent on 01/08/2020

Loved working with The Chase!
We got married at the Leech Lake Event Center and rented out the large twin home on Leech Lake for our wedding party. Jessica from the Chase on the Lake worked with us as our wedding coordinator and I cannot speak more highly of her! She was by FAR the best vendor I worked with out of all the wedding vendors, which was such a relief because she is the most important! She was incredibly responsive, so kind and extremely helpful. Our wedding day was perfect and Jess was a large reason as to why! I definitely would recommend :)Sent on 10/11/2019

Amazing! Best venue in MN
Matt and I got married last weekend at Chase on the Lake! Everything about the planning process was wonderful! We worked directly with Jess and she answered any questions we may have had! Not only is the location beautiful but our guests thoroughly enjoyed being at such an accommodating resort. The wedding venue is completely custom to your wedding style and extremely affordable! During our ceremony we had the bowling alley open for some of the night and our guests are still raving about how unique that was! This venue isn’t comparable to any other in Minnesota! You have to book at Chase on the Lake!Sent on 11/17/2018
