    Stepmom of the groom and vendor

    The Lake Elsie Wedding Barn and Lady on the Lake B&B are hidden gems of North Dakota. We just wrapped up a wonderful wedding weekend and couldn’t be happier. Many thanks to Sandy, Robin and the entire team. Sandy and Marshall have recently made a considerable investment in the pavilion tent, the paved surface, and surrounding landscape. This worked well for dinner, even with a brisk April day. The dance upstairs in the barn was so much fun. Many memories made last weekend! Brian and I hope to return again, next time to relax and enjoy more of Sandy’s cooking. Maybe I’ll get that scalloped potato recipe out of her yet! 😉

    Lake Elsie Wedding Barn's reply:

    It was a pleasure having you here. You have such a talent with floral arrangement, you just transformed our wedding pavilion. You were a joy to work with. We were happy to caterer for your grooms meal so glad you liked the scalloped potatoes.
