    Amazing wedding venue!

    I am so happy I had my wedding reception at Nicollet Island! All of my guests loved the semi outdoor / indoor location right on the river. We had such a great time and everything looked so beautiful! (attached photos by Russell Heeter Photography)

    Absolutely perfect venue!

    Our wedding was gorgeous and this venue is the perfect place to have had our big day at! The event coordinator did such a good job of helping make sure everything was done and ready to go for the day! They took care of all the small details and really made sure the day went smoothly! Getting married in April, it’s really nice to have options like the tent for an option in case the weather didn’t cooperate.
