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:
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 Cafe, Turtle 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!
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. The Clinic Bar, Shortys Bar in Gully, Turtle River Chop House, & CK Dudleys. 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 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.
Professional Decorators- Liisa Amundson does amazing decorating, we highly recommend her work.
Porta-Potties- We adore the staff at Port-Able John Rentals, they are wonderful, call 218-751-9453. They also carry very fancy outhouses! There is also a great company near us called "Solid Bottom"
Photography- There are many great photographers up North! Eric & Rebecca of Bemidji Wedding Photography & Video have went the extra mile and toured our place to get to know the "good spots". Their number is 218-556-6609. Photos by Trish is a very reputable area photographer as well. We understand these descions are personal so wanted to provide some photographers that have been to our place!
