    Amazing Experience & Great Communication

    Two of my incredible friends were kind enough to host my bridal shower here. It was overall an incredible experience and I could not say enough good things about it! First off, the space is so stunning in itself. It was clean, warm, and the staff had hand sanitizer in the space as well as a sign up stating the government orders. It was a safe environment for people to be in even amidst the pandemic. The space was also so large for people to social distance while still having a warm and cozy feeling. Once my friends added small touches of décor, personal items, and of course floral it turned the space into a sight to see! It was GORGEOUS and to die for! Literally a bridal shower of my dreams. They used rentals from the onsite company, The Foundry to create a big comfy lounge for games and opening gifts. They also used trestle tables from onsite which make your event look so classy compared to white plastic tables!!! It overall was an amazing experience to work with everyone at NPC and Luminary. They had great communication and are so, so kind!

    Simply the Best

    If you are looking to get married in the Brainerd area, look no further than the Northern Pacific Center. I saw photos through a photographer I follow on Instagram and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. Within a week of seeing photos of the venue my boyfriend and I set up a visit. At the end of our tour my boyfriend even proposed! We ended up booking both Luminary and Blacksmith Main. We held our ceremony at Luminary and cocktail hour/ reception at Blacksmith Main. Grace was such an amazing help throughout the entire process, she was so quick to respond and never made me feel like I was bothering her with all of my questions. Luminary is absolutely breathtaking the moment you walk through the double doors. The light and airy aesthetic is such a dream and the natural light cannot be beat. This place is truly one of a kind.
