    Beautiful venue great for customization

    Paikka is a beautiful clean slate, perfect for making your wedding exactly how you want it to be! From allowing you to bring in your own vendors and decor, to providing the beautiful custom wood reception tables and chairs, this venue is absolutely fantastic! Although it seems fairly pricey for the rental fee, their allowance to bring in your own caterer and bartenders actually brings the cost down to much less than other venues around the area. They know how to do weddings and we are so glad we went with them!

    Fantastic venue!

    PAIKKA was amazing. The venue itself has a clean, industrial, modern look to it with fun areas around it to take pictures. We didn’t pay for the outdoor space but were still able to open their garage doors and have people go outside (we just could set anything up on their patio). The best part of PAIKKA was that we could bring any vendors we wanted without any additional charges. This saved us a LOT of money and let us have a lot of small touches that made the wedding unique to us. Liz (the venue director) was great to work with! Super friendly, organized and helpful.

    Winter Wedding at PAIKKA

    We loved the vibe that PAIKKA had the moment we toured the space. It was exactly what we were looking for in a venue for our winter wedding. Having both spaces (separated by the most amazing doors) created room for our guests to spread out and mingle. Lake Monster Brewery down the hall was also the perfect place for my now husband and I to escape and have a beer (just the two of us) after our ceremony. PAIKKA’s staff are extremely helpful and provided solutions to all the ideas we had for the space — It was also great to bring in our own catering, bartending, lightening, etc. with suggestions from the knowledgeable staff. Thanks again!
