We had the wedding of our dreams at Lutsen Resort! Our wedding coordinator, Ana, went above and beyond to help out with everything we needed and more, which was not an easy task since we were planning our wedding from a few states away. The resort is beautiful as well as the whole property, and obviously the lake. We appreciated the sequence of different locations throughout the actual wedding day. We were married on the lawn by the beach, then had the social hour outside on the patio, dinner in the dining room, dance in the ballroom, then a beach bonfire to top the night off. The Lutsen staff was very helpful and friendly the day of the wedding. The food was fantastic. We had the pork loin, walleye, wild rice pilaf, and seasonal vegetables. Lutsen has great lodging options: from a normal sized hotel room for just a few people, or renting a whole condo for the whole family. Almost all of our guests at the wedding stayed at Lutsen. We really enjoyed our whole stay at Lutsen, and the day of the wedding was everything we could have asked for and more. It was the perfect day, and we had a lot of guests tell us it was the best wedding they had been to.

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!
