Wedding Vendors & Caterers

Parties are allowed to bring in whatever caterer/vendors they choose, or do their own pig roast/potluck, or whatever the party desires. Time and time again we get wedding parties that desperately want to choose their own foods and at our facility you can do just that:) So if you want your family's time tested recipes at your table, no worries, bring a platter of whatever you wish.


To make sure your event is a success, we will happily provide you with local information on:  

Dining/Food Caterers

Adult Beverage Caterers

Party Tent Rentals

Other Important vendors

The information below on these above caterers & vendors is for your convinience and is subject to change.


Dining/Food Caterers: We will work with whatever vendor you choose, will meet with them and make sure that they are on the same page as you as far as where and how you want everything to go. We have worked with Luekens Foods before, they have a significant amount of experience, and great to work with. There are MANY food caterers in the area.


Cakes/Desserts/Cup Cakes: Such a personal decision, like flowers, there are many options but few that fit a wedding's vision. I have to start with Althea's Cakery (218)431-0838, based closely out of Fosston, they provide such savory, unique delectables, including a "cup cake bar" where guests can design their own. These ladies speak the language of Delicious. There are many great bakers up in the Northwoods, just call for recommendations!


Florists: Stems N' Such just 10 miles down the road has highly experienced florists, we are lucky to be so close! There is also KD Floral, another gem that produces visually brilliant arrangements.


Adult Beverage Caterers: It is important that however you decide to keep your thirsty guests satisfied is a safe decision. Someone has to be put in charge of doling out alcoholic beverages to ensure minors are not being served. We highly trust the Keg n' Cork beverage catering bar/restaurant from Bemidji. They will set up, and sell drinks to your guests and assume the liquor liability. Please run your ideas by us about how you wish to deal with the alcohol.


Party Tent Rentals: You may choose where you would like to place your rental tent to best suit your wedding's needs. We Trust Lefty's Tent and Party Rental in Bovey, MN @ (218) 245-1387, the Party Store in Bemidji, and Northern Tent Rental to do their best. All have come to our venue.
