Minnetonka Orchards met and exceeded our expectations. Our outdoor wedding in the orchard turned into a rainy event. The staff wiped down all the chairs and transferred them to our tent post wedding with a smile on their face. They were extremely helpful during the entire process and we are so grateful for such a beautiful site that included a wonderfully professional staff with incredible hospitality. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!Sent on 02/06/2015

Minnetonka Orchards was exactly what we were looking for for our summer wedding. Everything was absolutely beautiful..from the woodsy ceremony site to the awesome reception tent. It was the perfect place for the vision we had for our special day. The bride and grooms barns were great (the bridal barn had A/C!!), the ceremony site was intimate, the outdoor games and bonfire pit were perfect and the reception tent was spacious and beautiful. We had our first dance outside on the cute dance floor, which made it even more unique and special. Everyone was entertained and we got so many compliments on how fun the day was! There were so many great places to take photos and plenty of space to set up our photo guestbook, s’mores, popcorn and candy bar and everything else. The fairy lights and flowers outside were beautiful and created a very special ambiance at night. Kelly was amazing to work with! She was so helpful with all of our questions and concerns and very responsive. She was very flexible and the staff was wonderful to work with as well. Everyone was so nice and made us feel so comfortable during the planning process and day of the wedding. They even let us set up a day early and pick things up the day after (since there were no events going on either day), which was a life saver! Thank you Kelly and staff for making our day absolutely wonderful!! We highly recommend Minnetonka Orchards!Sent on 09/17/2018
