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.

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

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
    • monstermoose78
      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
