The site for this wedding was beautiful and we got nonstop compliments on it. There are a couple things, which weren't such a hindrance but I thought I would make others aware of. First, there is a giant, beautiful fire place right in the middle of the dance floor. This is fine if you don't plan on having a large wedding but if you do, plan on having guests sit behind it and not seeing much of what is going on. Second, I feel that the wedding planner at this location was super sweet but at times was a little unprofessional. She didn't return calls until quite awhile later, which is a little annoying. Third, if you plan on taking your pictures at the site you'll have to stay off the greens (which are super beautiful) and they are not flexible on letting you use a couple golf carts to get around the place. Otherwise, I think this place is very beautiful and I know a lot of people get married here and love it.

The Refuge is a beautiful, rustic, yet modern wedding venue. We received so many compliments from our guests’ that it was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen. The vaulted ceilings and wood work was amazing. It is also reassuring to know they have two backup plans in case it rains; under the covered patio or inside.

My only complaint is the tiny room for the bridal party to get ready in and no room for the groomsmen. There is no natural light in the bridal room and the connected bathroom had a strange musty odor. However, I am glad that there was a room since it was better than nothing. We ended up doing our makeup in the stairwell where there was natural light.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator was great to work with and very responsive to our emails. The Refuge is a must see venue in the north metro.

My experience with the refuge was pretty great! The food was awesome and the servers did a good job! I was also able to come in the morning before to set up which was a huge relief! I mostly worked with Jessica a Joe, who were very nice and easy to work with.

We loved having our wedding at The Refuge. It was the absolutely perfect balance of rustic and elegant for us. We also wanted to be able to get married outside with a good back-up plan. Unlike many venues where "back-up" plan is having guests sit at their dinner tables, The Refuge offers a beautiful wrap-around porch/patio to get married on in the case of rain. Fortunately, we had beautiful weather but it was reassuring to me to know that there was a good back-up.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and very understanding of my many questions. She made me feel very comfortable that things would go smoothly the day of the wedding and they did. There were a few small things that could have been better (golf carts going behind us during pictures, the bartenders not asking our contact person if we wanted to go to the reserve alcohol) but I attribute some of those things to Jessica not being there the day of the wedding and it being run by someone who was less familiar with our plan for the day. None of these things influenced how well our day went, they were just very small things that could have been improved on.

We had a perfect wedding day! I would highly recommend The Refuge. It is a beautiful venue that is more reasonably priced than many of the other place near Minneapolis/St. Paul and the staff are very helpful.

We were married outside at The Refuge underneath their new cedar "gazebo/canopy."

We were married around 6 p.m and realized that the setting sun was glaring in everyone's eyes at that time. Something to be aware of for your guests.

While the facilities beautiful, we were VERY disappointed when GOLFERS whizzed by in their golf carts during our ceremony!! We had discussed this with all the wedding planners (they changed planners 3 times during the few months leading up to our August wedding) and were assured that access to the ceremony area would be restricted to golfers. Well, it wasn't.

Also, when planning the dinner, we weren't aware that we could have invited parents/bridal party to the dinner tasting. No one told us. That was something we regret not having been able to share.

A phone call from the wedding planner following a wedding would be a nice courtesy.
Much money is spent here on a ceremony/reception. It would be nice to feel as though there is a personal touch involved and not just a business transaction. No initiative to seek feedback.

They were great and I truly believe a wonderful value. The whole team was amazing to work with; people loved the food and the venue. It was a great place to have the wedding. I did actually recommend it to a co-worker's daughter; they are not only having their wedding there as well but with the referral we received complimentary appetizers!
People thought the food was amazing too. It was truly a wonderful evening :)

Our Wedding Reception was absolutely beautiful because of the natural beauty of the Ball Room at the Refuge and due to the hard work of all the staff. We worked with Jami Price, the event coordinator on site. She was professional, prompt, and organized. She has years of experience at the Refuge, and as a result, she was able to forsee all the details that we needed to arrange prior to the event. She responded to my calls, emails, and questions within one day, if not a few hours! She managed the staff to make sure that everything from set-up to tear-down went smoothly. She was a calming and reassuring presence the day of the reception. All of the staff worked diligently throughout the night. The food and beverage manager, Joe, was also very professional and experienced. The Refuge also has partnerships with well-known vendors such as Buttercream cakes. The oak ceiling is so beautiful, you don't even need drapery! It will be a beautiful pleasurable experience!

The dance floor is too small and the DJ was cramped into a corner. DJ didn't get served food and he even asked to be served with the table in front of him which he had taken a plate for and we included him in the count. The bonuses is that they have a nice setting, a wireless microphone that covers the entire reception area for announcements and speeches, and the food was decent.

The Refuge staff was absolutely amazing. Jami was there to help us every step of the way. We had the ceremony outside and the reception in the banquet hall and both were absolutely beautiful! Everybody raved about the food and told everyone how stunning everything had been. The waitstaff and bartenders were friendly and very helpful. To anyone who is looking for a picturesque place to be married this is for sure the place!
