Spring Wedding - May, 2023

We got married at Manhattan Beach Lodge in May of 2023. I could not have asked for a better wedding. We LOVED the venue, and so did our guests. It is extremely nice having the ceremony, dinner, and reception all at the same spot - and you can’t beat the beautiful view of the lake! Our day was smooth and well planned, all thanks to Crystal! Crystal is amazing at what she does and I would not have wanted to work with anyone else. She’s extremely accommodating, kind, fun, creative, and experienced! She truly wants the bride and groom to have the most amazing day. Crystal made the wedding planning process a breeze and answered all of our emails/questions in a timely manner. I can’t recommend Manhattan Beach Lodge enough!

Spectacular!

We had the most enchanting New Year's Eve Engagement celebration at this remarkable wedding venue. I cannot speak highly enough about the outstanding service provided by Crystal and the entire team. The candlelit dinner in the Fireplace Dining room followed by the bistro light ambiance in the Garden Room created a magical atmosphere that set the stage for an unforgettable evening.
The culinary experience, by Chef Casey, surpassed all expectations; the filets were cooked to perfection, and the lobster sauce paired with the risotto was nothing short of amazing. The timing of every element of the evening was flawless, with everything unfolding right on cue.
The staff at the venue were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their talent and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of the event. A special shout out to Crystal, the Director of Sales and Marketing, whose phenomenal expertise and dedication ensured that every nuance was remembered and attended to. From the initial planning stages to the execution of the event, Crystal and her team orchestrated a glorious experience. I felt incredibly taken care of and completely confident in their abilities throughout.
The historic lodge provided such a charming and exclusive stay, and the view and sunset from the honeymoon suite was breathtaking. The staff's meticulous coordination efforts were evident in every detail, ensuring that our special moment, marked by a champagne toast, was seamlessly executed.
In summary, Manhattan Beach Lodge, coupled with the expertise of Crystal, Casey, Cass, and the entire staff, contributed to an evening that exceeded our expectations. The level of service, attention to detail, and overall execution were nothing short of exceptional. It was truly a night to remember, thanks to the dedication and professionalism of everyone involved!!!!

Absolutely Wonderful!

We couldn’t have picked a more perfect place to start our forever. Working with Crystal was so easy, and as a bride, it made me feel so at ease knowing my day was going to be run smoothly. The day of, and even the few days before-hand during setup, the staff was so accommodating; going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. For those wanting a perfect up north wedding, I highly recommend the Whitefish Lodge.
