I was just thinking bout my wedding in August, and where I should have it. I really need to nail down the specifics, any suggestions on a nice outdoor spot for my wedding ceremony/ reception maybe? Hopefully somewhere near eveleth/mt.iron area...

The spot I would get married at in NE MN is actually part of Cathedral of the Pines Church Camp or whatever it is. Its a fire area along the Superior Hiking Trail just off the Caribou Trail. Its a larger fire/ceremony area along the hiking trail overlooking Caribou Lake. Beautiful if your looking for an outdoor wedding. Maybe its too far east for you.

Ya I got old ones coming so I don't want them to have to drive far. I just want a quiet service overlooking a lake or near a lake somewhere close...

There's a campfire area by some cedars near the shore of Shagawa Lake below Grand Ely Lodge in Ely, Casey. Not sure if that's too far away for or not, but I've photographed two weddings in that location and it's very nice.

I'm getting nervous now I know the date got my pastor, got my dress, picked maid o honor, bridesmaids, got the best man down and the groomsmen, but I only have five months to figure out who I'm inviting, how I'm going to get food for all those ppl, where we're gonna have the ceremony and reception, oh this is too [PoorWordUsage] much.

Sorry for the vent! Thank you so much for the replies keep em coming! Any more suggestions would be welcome!! grin.gif

Ummmm, are we really talking about the biggest threat to fishing (Marriage) on THIS website? This is a f-i-s-h-i-n-g forum

Nah, LR, we talk about all kinds of things here, not just fishing. And I got lucky. I married my fishing partner, and she's the one who's always on ME to go fishing, not the other way around, so marriage hasn't ruined my fishing career. grin.gifgrin.gif

My cousin got married out at the campground area on the Kawishawi River on Hwy 1. They have a great old pavilion in case it rains. It was very cheap to rent also.

I kayaked by a wedding in progress on the shores of Gooseberry. There's a nice old CCC building where they were having their reception. It's a beautiful site when the weather's nice but can be cold and miserable if the weather's bad--who can predict that?

Casey,

Fished with a friend of mine on a lake in Cherry, think it was called Star Lake. It's somewhat of a private lake, they hold alot of weddings there from what he said. They have a pavillion and dance hall and also kitchen facilities. If your interested, I can get a contact for you. Met some of your family at the Duluth Boat show this year...Nice people.

A couple ideas-

Some friends had a reception at curling club/ hockey hall of fame and it was a nice time-also easy walking distance to bar hop. Maybe Olcott Greenhouse/gardens in town? Tower/vermilion isn't that far away either.

My wife and I got married in the old log church in Bovey and had a reception in Grand Rapids at the KAXE radio station-they have a huge saddle tent that came in handy for rain. There is also a park on lake about 15 min north of virginia off of 53-can't remember the name. Either way if your doing it on the cheap any place that is special to both of you will work,local park/lake, even a friend's yard/cabin. It's nice to have hotels or better yet campgrounds nearby for the reception but don't sweat the small stuff,it's all about you guys and your guests can deal w/ it, in fact we spent alot of time planning (= worrying) and I'd rather have eloped in vegas and then thrown a huge reception afterward when you get home. The important thing isn't the wedding itself it's how many fish you catch in the years to follow;-)

Sorry I don't have any suggestions for weddings locations in those parts but it looks like the guys are have some very good ones.

All I can offer is a location with a backup plan to get under shelter if it rains. If that location has picnic tables all the better. State Parks usually have something like that. I know Jay Cooke does.

Food, maybe you can ask attendees to bringa dish for a buffet style dinner. Get some nice looking plastic table cloths, disposable plats. Make a center piece for each table. Flowers will be out so you or someone can make a few arrangements.

I like camo but you look very nice in that wedding dress and I like it. I think you like it too.

Casey...last year a co-worker got married and had the reception at the Mesaba Coop Park. Was kinda cool, they have that old 2 story building, they had the ceremony up on the stage and then downstairs had the meal, then it was back upstairs for the dancin and drinkin. A few people got cabins or camped there too.

my niece got married at the top of Giant's Ridge. Everyone took the chairlift to the top and with the background of Wynne Lake and the forest it was awesome. Reception was right at the Ridge

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
