Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This lush five-acre property overlooks the mighty Mississippi. The river and its tree-fringed banks serve as a memorable backdrop for your ceremony, with a blooming garden for even more photo ops.
  • Host cocktails (or your ceremony) on their riverside deck, then segue to the elegant Reception Room, adorned with chandeliers. Tall windows and an array of mirrors highlight the gorgeous outdoor vistas.
  • An experienced team offers event planning, day-of consultation, and upscale décor packages. Plus, you'll get excellent service and delicious cuisine from award-winning Mintahoe Catering.
