Boy did we luck out..

We had our wedding planned early May, when their booking was not open. They opened booking for us so that we could book it and were quick to respond and very flexible.
We lucked out with gorgeous weather (only nice day in a 2 week span and it snowed 3 days later) and even being "off season" the area was well groomed and beautiful.

Stunning Gazebo for Ceremony & Gorgeous for Reception

This was the perfect place for our wedding! We got a half day permit for cheap and held a Sunday wedding.

Our ceremony was under the Gazebo: it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We had some of the most stunning photos with Lake Superior in the background. Had there been rainy weather, we would have been fine under the Gazebo. I was a bit worried random people would walk in on it, but the garden visitors were very respectful.

Afterwards, our reception was in the park to the right of the Japanese Garden. It was the perfect place! We had yard games and rented tables and chairs. The garden itself is so beautiful and well kept, you hardly need to decorate.

The Park Staff were incredibly helpful while getting our permit and the days leading up to the wedding. We also go a refundable canopy permit from the park, which we didn't need as the weather was great. I'd suggest getting the permit at least a half a year out, the park books up with celebrations and weddings.

Beautiful Wedding place

From our first date, getting engaged at Brighton Beach we knew we would be married there. The weather for June was cold but nothing was going to stop us on our special day. The sky cleared and the lake was welcoming. With our family and closest friends made this day amazing. Brighton Beach will always be apart of us every year.
