Elm Creek Park Chalet, part of the Three River's Park District was such a beautiful and nice place to have our wedding ceremony and reception. We got lucky and had a beautiful day to have the ceremony outside on the patio. I would recommend having a bit of a smaller wedding here. It can fit up to about 200, but our just over 100 guests was a perfect amount! We loved how you could play a picture slide show and the dance floor was part of the cost. No hidden fees, except that keep in mind this place is Green so all reusable and compostable products. You may have to purchase some extra things, although your caterer usually provides most of them. The Chalet has such natural beauty already, we didn't feel we needed to add much decor. One thing I did not care for was having people help set up chairs for the ceremony. The venue took them down, which was nice, but it was a hassel trying to take photos and have people set up chairs, who weren't sure how to set them. Also Julie M. was great to work with. She was very organized and fast to respond to our millions of questions.

Highly recommended! We worked with Alyssa at Silverwood and have nothing but good things to say. She was very responsive to our (many) questions, by phone and by email, and was willing to work with all our ideas. The venue itself was lovely at the end of October! Most of the park's trees are oaks, so they turned a lovely orange (a little later than many trees turn in the fall - we got lucky!). We actually had our ceremony outdoors - and LOTS of compliments on the beautiful view!

The Great Hall is a lovely, clean, spacious and versatile room. We went with a vintage travel theme and it worked great with the space. I imagine it would work beautifully with a rustic theme too! It's also surprisingly affordable compared to other similar venues we visited, and at the time we booked (Sept 2013), there was no variable pricing for weekdays/weekends - all days rent for the same rate. :) We appreciated having the ability to pick whichever day we wanted, regardless of price!

This location is a park, which means there are people who are not part of your wedding also present, but the staff sets out very clear signs and the space that you reserve is exclusively yours for the day (as are the spaces you choose to take pictures). We had a kind of odd situation with another wedding party walking through and taking pictures during setup, but it was quickly and professionally taken care of by our host.

If there was a downside to this location, it's that the bridal dressing room isn't very large - it's more like a small office. I actually asked to get ready in a different room off of the reception room. It was set up as kind of a kids' classroom, but our photographer managed to leave the primary colors and train-track carpet out of our pictures, no problem! And Silverwood was very gracious in granting my request. :)

I would very highly recommend Silverwood!! We had a fantastic experience and months later, we are still getting compliments about the beautiful location! :)

Gale Woods was a beautiful and perfect venue for an outdoor wedding! The proximity of the ceremony and reception site was very convenient and made for a wonderful set up. In addition, all the staff were very helpful in answering any questions or giving recommendation of what worked best for decorating and layout. The only hard part was the list of approved vendors and drinks, but we were able to find a great vendor on the list. Furthermore, not being able to set up earlier the day of the wedding was a slight challenge but doable.

Elm Creek Chalet
We had both our ceremony and reception at the chalet. It is a beautiful place at a wonderful value. What I loved best was that we had the chalet all day, from 10am to Midnight. This gave plenty of time to set up and get ready, my bridesmaids and I were even able to get our hair done in their backroom. The staff there is amazing. Julie was very good about helping us decide layout and how things should go. The chalet is so beautiful very few decorations were needed.

We used the Noerenberg Gardens as our ceremony site. It is located about 20 minutes west of Minneapolis in an area that is just full of lakes and bays and beautiful homes and gardens. I fell in love with the Noerenberg Gardens when I saw the Gazebo which was right on the water. The views are fantastic and for a small wedding, it is just the right size. They have several options throughout the gardens for weddings of varying sizes, and all of the areas provide unique and interesting pictures. I found the price to be reasonable as far as venues go, although chairs were extra, at $2 a pop. You have to set up the chairs, but they will take them down, which gave us one less thing to worry about the day of. They also have a strict no food/drink/pet policy that was laid out by the Noerenbergs, who donated the land for public use. There is no wiggle room on that, but you can drink in the parking lot if you are parched. There is also no formal bathroom, but a handicap-sized port-a-potty. In the fall of 2014, they will be building a permanent bathroom, so that won't be an issue in the near future. Overall, this was a lovely location for the ceremony and pictures. Guests kept remarking at how beautiful it was. I would definitely recommend checking out the gardens to see if any of the sites within would suit your ceremony.

Our wedding was at Silverwood Park in May 2014. It is such a beautiful venue and guests loved being able to go outside and walk the trails/spend time by the lake if they wanted to. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint was that the great hall was extremely hot the night of our wedding and they had no way of controlling the temp of the A/C. Overall thank you for the great experience!

Elm Creek Chalet was a great choice for our ceremony/venue. Is was secluded in a wonderful park reserve in Maple Grove. There were plenty of beautiful spots to take pictures and wonder about. Inside the chalet was beautiful bring fireplace to the ceiling there set the theme of our wedding (rustic, antique, woodsy). I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone. Definitely a great value!
