Shannon was amazing to work with!!! They made sure everything I wanted was in order! Even when there was a table mix up, they quickly fixed it! We had the most perfect wedding day and are so thankful we choose The Wilds as our reception place!

WOW!!! Where do I even start! We had both our wedding and reception at The Wilds Oct 14th 2016 and it was all PERFECT!! We toured many different venues but The Wilds by far exceeded our expectations! From the minute we drove into The Wilds we loved the venue. But once we met Shannon- we were SOLD! She is amazing!!! The day of the wedding it was to windy for my decorations outside, but that didn't matter because we were surrounded by beauty! The patio (wedding location) is beautiful. It is surrounded by the greens of the golf coarse, the edge is lined with potted flowers, and the patio has a fire ring which just sets the mood! It was started before the wedding and just added an additional touch, my husband, I and guest loved it! Afterwards the guest raved about the yummy appetizers that were passed around. Yet to be even more pleased with their dinner! Everyone commented on how the food was so yummy, served nice and hot, and some of the "best food ever"!! We ordered the Minnesota Stuffed Chicken and the Bistro Steak with cheesy hash browns, salad, green beans and dinner roles- everything was so good! But all of this is truly made possible because of Shannon and her dedication to her job, it shows that this is a passion for her not just a 9-5 job. She is so good at what she does I cant say enough about her. A few things that stood out that you wont find other places is the quick response time ( which is so nice when planning your big day, you will get a response within hours), if your not sure on something just ask her- she has so many ideas and recommendations that are so helpful and lastly her caring and cheerful personality, she really cares about you and wants this to be the best day ever and she will make sure on her behalf that it is! Shannon is the BEST of the BEST and we were so lucky to work with her!!! So thank you again to the WONDERFUL STAFF at The Wilds!!! You made our special day one that we will never forget and I cannot thank you all enough!

We settled on the Wilds for our June 22 wedding and were very pleased. Though we didn't necessarily want to get married on a golf course the views are fantastic and offer great photography options. We had hoped to get married on their beautiful patio but the weather turned out to be much too hot. This wasn't a problem for Shannon and her staff! They turned their banquet room into a lovely spot for our ceremony and then with ease changed it over for our dinner and reception. We were impressed with all of the food choices. Our guests said that the food was good, served in a timely manner, and was an adequate temperature! I am a vegetarian but I don't like onions....the dish was covered in them...but that was no problem for Shannon's efficient team...the brought me a fresh plate without a problem which was wonderful! We took some photographs off site before dinner and were a little late returning...Shannon and her staff had no problem adjusting for us!! Our guests loved the sundae bar and the late night pizza and our bartender was fantastic! We only had one issue which is the reason for our 4 star review...Our rehearsal was a bit chaotic and unorganized as there was no one from the staff who stayed with us to help guide us...it was too hot to go outside so we had to wing it a bit and ended up rehearsing in the main entrance! We made it but it would of been nice to have some more direction from the staff. There was a large golf tournament going so we understood things were hectic, but we felt a bit forgotten. Also, after giving instructions to a staff member at our rehearsal it was our understanding that several items would be placed before our ceremony. This was not done and our florist and wedding coordinator had to scramble to get it done last minute. Other than that our day was lovely! We would recommend Shannon and her team for events and weddings!

WOW! What an amazing venue for such an amazing value! We both have such huge families that we were limited to just a few venues in the area of our hometown, and The Wilds was one of our options. We toured the venue with Shannon, the event coordinator, and immediately fell in love with her and the venue. We visited two more places after that, and we compared everything we saw to The Wilds. Shannon is so easy to work with, she is completely dedicated to her job, and she is phenomenal at what she does. We chose The Wilds because of what they had to offer and because we knew we'd be working with Shannon for the majority of the process. They offer an outdoor ceremony option on their back patio that is absolutely GORGEOUS. They also have a bride's room and rooms in the basement for both the males and females to get ready. There are so many perfect photo opportunities all around the building, including opportunities with views of the golf course. The Wilds offered everything we needed and then some, even for a guest list of 300! Their prices are reasonable, they don't charge a "room rental" (aka: throwing money away solely to use the room), and they have so many connections with vendors that it was a no-brainer for us! We love The Wilds!

We had our ceremony, reception, and dance at The Wilds. The day couldn’t have gone better! From the start Shannon, the food & beverage director, was amazing. She offered great advice and suggestions leading up to the day of the wedding, knew all of the correct questions to ask so nothing would be missed, and she was extremely accommodating. She suggested photographers and florists to use and helped us keep the wedding within budget. Shannon was always very clear and upfront about the pricing so I never had any surprises. The staff at The Wilds was amazing as well. Cheryl helped us put together our beautiful center pieces and Chantel was also extremely helpful in answering questions throughout the planning process. The day of the wedding I heard my mother-in-law had issues with her shoe and a lady from the kitchen noticed and worked diligently to help my mother-in-law fix the issue. Also one of the serving staff noticed that a guest wasn’t eating her meal due to a gluten allergy and the staff immediately brought the guest a gluten free meal. The ceremony was lovely out on the patio overlooking the golf course and the food was delicious. We also were able to get amazing photos outside of The Wilds before the ceremony and gorgeous sunset pictures too. I would highly recommended The Wilds to anyone!

The Wilds was a perfect venue for us to have our wedding reception and to host our 200 guests. Shannon, the food & beverage director, was beyond amazing to work with from beginning to the end. She gave extraordinary advice on how to flow the events of my wedding day, provided food/drink suggestions and helpful tips all the little details you don't think of until the week of the wedding. Shannon made it so easy to plan our reception, especially with me living out-of-state. She met with my parents multiple times for food tastings and with me every time i was in-town planning details. She was so quick to respond all my emails/phone calls, it was like we had our own wedding planner...she was the BEST!! I would recommend The Wilds to any bride that wants exceptional service, reasonable rates with the glamour of fine dining and beautiful venue. All of our guests raved about what a fabulous venue The Wilds is and how much fun they had. Thank you for making our wedding day picture perfect!

The Wilds Golf Club was nothing but amazing to work with! After searching for weeks for the perfect venue, I found the Wilds Golf Club. I emailed and called about 30 venues before I found The Wilds Golf Club. I toured the site 14 months before our wedding and was the only site we toured. Once we toured the venue we knew the minute we entered that this was the place we were going to get married at.

From the first meeting Shannon was beyond excellent. She was the exact type of person that I needed to work with on my wedding. I worked with Shannon on every little detail, asking a million questions, getting responses back almost immediately. During our site visit, our two tastings, and just stopping by, the entire staff had great customer service!


The month before the wedding, Shannon and I began working on final details. Shannon is more of a wedding planner, than anything else. She assisted me with ordering chargers, making sure we had enough dessert and made sure I didn’t forget anything. Shannon secured a room for all my table settings, candy table and all my other decorations. This was a huge help, as I was award the bride with the most “Stuff” ever at a wedding. I cannot say enough of her and the service we received. I am a very detailed person, who was not easy to work with. Shannon always was there for and I am forever grateful of her and the service she provided me.

We had 280 guests attend our reception. They were extremely accommodating to those with food allergies. The chef took extra measures to ensure my guests welfare that had allergies. During and after the reception, I could hear people talking about the food. We served chicken stuffed with Minnesota wild rice and bistro steak along with garlic mashed potatoes. All night people complimented on the stellar food choices. The steak was tender and the food was hot. Three weeks later and people are still talking about the food.

Shannon and team are amazing! She has been doing this for years and consistently winning awards. The Wilds is a beautiful venue to begin with. We had our ceremony outside on the patio and our cocktail hour, reception and dance inside the clubhouse/ballroom. We have beautiful outdoor pictures in front of the club and in the fields behind the club. Shannon gave us great deals and threw in some freebies because we had our wedding on a Friday night. We were very pleased...she also helped us select other vendors in our budget. She responded immediately to emails and was available to meet several times before the wedding to go over the timeline, seating charts, what we needed for the ceremony outside, if we were doing a slideshow, timeline of the cake-cutting, speeches, etc. We were allowed to bring four others so six total to the food tasting for free to select our menu choice for the meal. We got alot of compliments on how good the food was at the Wilds from our Wedding guests. We had the bistro steak and chicken amaretto. There is alot of space for guests to move around throughout the night...they lit a fire in the firepit on the patio right off the ballroom so guests were going out to stand and chat around the fire. I highly recommend the Wilds as a wedding venue.
