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.

Site: Silverwood Park is a BEAUTIFUL venue. However, it is a park open to the public, so you can expect a mix of canoers/runners/bikers/fishers/coffee sippers.

Value: I’m guessing the Great Hall rental fee is pretty average for an established reception space at a park. The rental included a lot of equipment, though If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, you’ll likely have to rent chairs, which can get expensive. The dressing room was a little small but enough for what we ended up using it for.

Service: I thought the catering policies and guidelines for the “green gatherings facility” were a little strict at first, but after we decided on a caterer from their approved catering list, following the guidelines was pretty simple. Overall, the TRPD staff was very responsive, helpful, and accommodating. I sometimes didn’t know who to contact since I had worked with 4-5 people throughout the process, but everyone I contacted was very helpful. I really appreciated the flexibility that came with Silverwood’s amenities and rental period.

Silverwood Park is a magical place to get married. You are surrounded by old growth oaks and nature in every direction you look. The building is modern and has all the amenities you need. It is a great place to hold a small intimate wedding or a big fancy wedding because you can rent the great hall, the island, and/or the amphitheater!

Elm Creek is a beautiful site for a wedding. It was perfect for us becuase if it was sunny we had the beautiful patio to be married on and if it was cold or raining we had an amazing stone fireplace as our back drop. We were lucky to have good weather and were married outside. All evening long I heard many wonderful compliments on the venue. The staff was very freindly and easy to work with.

Hyland Chalet in Bloomington, MN, is perfect for a casual wedding! Everyone (from the coordinator, to the wait staff, to the chef, to the clean-up crew) was very helpful, friendly, and respectful toward a bride's requests... so be sure to treat them with the same kindness and respect.

Since the weather was perfect, many of the guests utilized the driving range for some post-dinner entertainment.

The food was great too! They didn't normally serve fajitas, but were able to come up with some pretty amazing fajitas that everyone raved about after dinner!

After months of research of all the different venues through out the entire Twin Cities area, we settled on Elm Creek Chalet. We have done events with the Three Rivers Park District before, and they had always been so nice -and the price was good & the size of the venue was perfect for what we needed. We didn't mind that we had to stick to the preferred caterers list - we picked Famous Dave's -we love that place! We booked 2 years in advance, but because of that a couple issues popped up in that time. A Disk Golf was put in and we were told we might have to share our patio space with random people walking through (that didn't thrill me thinking about people trying to sneak into my wedding uninvited --thankfully we had friends act loosely as bouncers just in case any unwanted people showed up). Also, when we went to set up our rehearsal time for the day before, I was informed that they only did wedding rehearsals like Mon-Thurs! Some of my people were still working and/or out of state on Thurs! I was able to talk to someone and we got it worked out for having our rehearsal on Friday! They even let us stay a few minutes late so we could work on 1 more quickie run-thru! We did have to have our own set-up/take-down crews on our wedding day, but our friends were great and pitched in to help us. Everyone was great to work with and pretty prompt on returning our emails about any questions I had. We would recommend this very pretty venue to anyone!

Simply put, this is a dream location to be married! It has been open for about a year. Our guests raved about it. It was the first place we visited, and no other place compared. We were married outside on a patio overlooking trees and a lake. It was a breathtaking location. Our reception was in the new reception hall just inside from our ceremony. It is a "green building" with high ceilings and large windows. It has a decidedly "Minnesotan feel." We rented the main reception hall and the classroom, which we recommend. We put our bar in the classroom. Silverwood has a list of many approved caterers. We wished we could have picked any caterer, but it was nice that Silverwood at least had a variety of choices. Also, Silverwood lets you bring in your own alcohol, which is a huge cost savings (we did this while using Bayview catering as our bartenders). Silverwood was helpful throughout the planning process: their staff is very nice. We had our dream wedding, and Silverwood had a huge part in making that possible!

The Elm Creek Park Chalet was a beautiful setting. It has a lodge like feeling to the inside and is set in a park setting with trees and trails all around the area. The price was resonable for such a nice venue. The downside was we had to do our own setup and takedown/cleanup. It would have been nice if we could have gotten in there the night before without getting charged extra to setup since we had a Friday wedding. Luckily we had it planned out and lots of great help so the setup and takedown went very smoothly. The other downside is you have to choose from a list of catering that they have, we were lucky enough to find a great catering buisness (Lookout Bar & Grill). The plus side is if you want to do your own food you can bring in your own food and serve it. We didn't have alcohol and we did our own drinks/pop/water/and punch which help save a lot of $$. They have a fridge that stores over 700 cans of pop/water bottles.
