Meet Pinewood! The Twin Cities newest wedding venue, located 1 hour north of Minneapolis and nestled in a forest of tall northern pines. We searched long and hard for a property that would inspire us to create a venue unlike any other in Minnesota. Pinewood is a place where you can escape the busy city and surround yourself with nature, yet still hold your event in an upscale, modern building.

Our goal was to intentionally design a venue from scratch that helps minimize stress throughout the day of an event. The venue has been carefully and thoughtfully designed with 8 years of behind-the-scenes wedding expertise through the photography industry. 

We’re so happy you’re here and we can’t wait to host your next event!


Pinewood's story


Where do I start? When I first saw Pinewood on Instagram my heart burst and I knew my future fiance would absolutely love it too. I was right. A few months later he finally proposed and he booked a tour with his parents to check it out. That's right. I didn't even make it out there and I'm not even worried about it. We both knew Pinewood was the perfect location for us and he just wanted to show it off to his parents. It's a dream. Am I crazy for booking a venue that isn't even built and I haven't even seen in person? Absolutely not. Pinewood has taken the time to do so much of the work for us (and you). There's been no guessing or wondering about which vendors to book or how things are going to work the day of. Pinewood has literally thought of everything and shared it all up front with us. You know those lists out on the internet of the top 100 questions to ask your wedding venue before signing? Pinewood doesn't wait for you to ask. They're an open book and ready to share their dream with us. The entire team has made the wedding planning process so simple and enjoyable - just the way wedding planning should be. Now I'm just (not so) patiently waiting for our day to finally come so I can marry my guy surrounded by family and friends and those beautiful pine trees.

We can’t put into words how excited we are to have Pinewood booked for our wedding in May 2020! Krysta, Tony and Kate have all put so much thought into every detail of the venue and the resources for planning our big day. They are so fun to work with, they are flexible in every area they can be, and they are very quick to give helpful responses to any questions that we have! And we have to add - The property is absolutely dreamy and beautiful!! We feel extremely blessed that we will get to celebrate our wedding at Pinewood, and we are confident it will be the wedding of our dreams because of each thought and detail Kate and Tony have put in to designing the perfect venue!!

We have loved working with Pinewood and watching it come to life! Everything has gone so smoothly; from the first email we sent to Pinewood, to the tour, and booking! It has been so fun and easy. Krysta, Kate and Tony are the kindest, sweetest, most laid back people ever, and have made this such a comfortable and easy decision for us! Krysta is so responsive and communicates all the details with us! They have been flexible with payments which was a determining factor for us. They didn’t hesitate for a second when we had to adjust some payments; so thankful for that! We are so happy with how it’s turning out and can’t wait to get married here!!!!
