    We are so happy we chose to have our small "elopement style" wedding at Lutsen Resort. Because we had a small guest list, we were able to get married right on the beach. Our wedding coordinator, Kathy Ann, was great to work with, which made for low stress planning. We lucked out with great weather, and had a beautiful ceremony and great food, followed by a beachfront bonfire. We would definitely recommend!

    KathyAnn was awesome! Lutsen Resort should be extremely grateful to have her as an employee!
