Meet Pinewood! 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 over 8 years of behind-the-scenes wedding expertise through the industry.

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


The Property


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 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!!!!

I was married at Pinewood in the fall. They were amazing to work with and the property is BEAUTIFUL. They communicated well throughout the whole process, truly had no hidden fees, cared about our preferences and cared about us as a couple. Our guests had a great time and loved the venue. We would recommend Pinewood to anyone!

Don’t be fooled, however. The BEST feature is not the sprawling lot with beautiful tall pines, or the clean, modern aesthetic of the venue that was thoughtfully pieced together, but rather the leadership of the venue owners and staff.

Having photographed at countless venues, I can say with CERTAINTY that this venue has the most thoughtful, detail-oriented owners and staff I have met. They went above and beyond to ensure our couple had a wonderful day, and I was carefully watching the ways, Tony - the owner - served both the bride and groom and families throughout the entirety of the event.

You WANT a space that is stunning for your event, of course..... Pinewood is certainly this. But what you really NEED are owners that take pride in their work and serve their couples joyfully.... and that’s where Tony and Kate + their staff are next level.

I recommend moving quickly on this space. I’m guessing availability will be hard to come across for 2020/21.

Can't recommend Pinewood enough.

I was matron of honor for a winter wedding here and it was fantastic. The ceremony space (whether you do indoor or outdoor) is separate from the reception space, so there's no awkward room shuffle like at a lot of weddings I've been in.

There is also a mini fridge you can use in the bride's room and grooms room, which is great to keep snacks cold for the wedding party. And a sink, and both rooms are stunning.

The building itself is GORGEOUS and located in the woods, only 5 mins from the hotel & groom's dinner. It was really nice to not have to drive far.

I worked with the Beckers on 3 family weddings now - what sets them apart from many others in the industry is that they're truly wedding experts that love their work and are consistent with their brand, not just event space owners. They help keep wedding stress low, which after 5 family weddings in 5 years, I have noticed is easier said than done.

We had the most magical, flawlessly executed, relaxing and happy wedding day. This is in huge part thanks to Kate, Tony, and the rest of the Pinewood team. Throughout the entire booking process, the Pinewood team was quick and clear in their responses even with multiple folks on my end asking the same questions multiple times. They were very patient and flexible and made the entire process a breeze.

I think one of the biggest things I appreciated was the time they allowed us to use the space after the rehearsal dinner. We had a big group who set up 100% of the decor the night before, which made the next day so easy. I really appreciate Kate and Tony's grace in handling such a large group and allowing us to run around despite the rehearsal being over. It gave me such a great peace of mind knowing that everything was prepared for the next day and that myself and my family/friends had minimal setting up the next day.

The wedding day itself was truly a dream. Kate and Tony again were gracious and welcoming and offered help with anything we needed. Vendors were able to easily get everything set up and coordinated thanks to the Pinewood team. The bridal suite was such a great perk since I had a very large group getting ready that morning. There was more than enough room and mirror space and it meant so much to me that I could get ready with my loved ones without having to rush to a different venue for ceremony or rehearsal.

The venue itself and the surrounding woods are just incredible. We received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful and unique the venue is, and even comments on how sweet Tony and Kate are. They have thought of every little detail, from the mini fridges in the suites to the coat closet, to the open lobby and separate ceremony and reception space. Even though it was December, a lot of guests wandered outside to the patio since Pinewood had a fire going as well as heaters. This was the perfect place for our cozy winter wedding. It's incredible how at home everyone felt here, and I wanted to thank Kate and Tony for that. Thank you for making our day so special!
