    Amazing, unique, and 100% worth the drive

    With a large majority of our guests flying in from other parts of the country, we wanted to give them a wedding they, and of course we, wouldn't forget and Sine P. and the folks at the Lutsen Resort definitely delivered! The lakeside ceremony site, the beautiful rustic dining room and ball room, and the views off over the lake made it for a magical long weekend getaway for us as well as everyone involved. We recommend going to their wedding weekend event to try the food and meet with vendors they have worked with because it made planning the details and coordinating the big day such a breeze. You do have to use their kitchen and alcohol selection so that might be a negative if you want to shop for deals but trust us, you will not be disappointed in any of the meal, sides, or app options they have (we went with the lamb and London broil beef with wild rice, mashed potatoes, and green beans). Our coordinator, Sine, and her team was always responsive and quick to answer any questions we had even during the height of the wedding season and went above and beyond the day of to help things move along. If you love to hike and be in nature, there is plenty to do around the resort and in the nearby towns for you and your guests to enjoy. We definitely plan on going back to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and maybe we will see them setting up for your wedding!
