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 talk with them before or at their arrival and make sure that they are on the same page as you as far as where and how you want everything to go. Make sure they dont arrive during ceremony! We have worked with Luekens Foods before, they have a significant amount of experience, and great to work with. Minnesota Nice CafeTurtle River Chophouse, Fozzies BBQ, Qdoba, Dickies BBQ, Keg n' Cork, CK Dudleys. There are MANY food caterers in the area. Many food caterers also do the portable bar. A package deal is a home run of food and bar. 


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: Hanson Floral 4 miles away, 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' CorkThe Clinic Bar, Shortys Bar in Gully, Turtle River Chop House, & CK Dudleys. They will set up, and sell drinks to your guests. Please run your ideas by us about how you wish to deal with the alcohol.


Due to new Minnesota laws, the liquor caterer must provide some food at the event too. This law may change, we will keep up to date on it, as the new law is highly inconvenient for our guests.


Party Tent Rentals: You may choose where you would like to place your rental tent to best suit your wedding's needs. We Trust these as they have been to the venue many times;  Northern Tent/Event Rental & Lefty's Tent and Party Rental.  Plus there are many more rental places in the area.
