Pinewood’s unique design is unlike any other in Minnesota. With its elegant yet simplistic style, it fits nestled in a forest of towering pines. We also designed this building with nature in mind. It was our goal to have as many windows as possible in an effort to bring the outside in.
Luxurious “getting ready” suites
These suites were specifically separated between the first and second floors to ensure privacy for both couples to get ready on their own floors, without having to cross paths. Both of our executive suites include a full-functioning kitchenette, private bathrooms, and living areas. The suite upstairs also has a dressing room and large makeup counter with seating and mirrors for multiple people to get ready for the day.
Outdoor ceremony area
Our outdoor ceremony area is truly amazing! Nestled in the middle of towering pines, this is a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony. We provide permanent benches at this ceremony site.
Indoor ceremony area
If you decide to host your ceremony indoors, we have dedicated a beautiful, vaulted indoor space specifically for this use! If you choose to do an outdoor ceremony and the weather is not working in your favor, our large ceremony room on the second floor of our building will be a stress-free backup for you! This room is separate from our reception hall on the first floor and is always set up with its own chairs so your vendors never have to rush to flip the room for dinner. Outdoor or indoor- either option is truly a win-win!
A custom-designed bar in the reception area that allows service both indoors and out will be a big hit for our clients and their guests.
Large patio area with access to the indoor/outdoor bar, outdoor firepit, and permanently mounted outdoor heaters for those chilly nights, all complimentary of Pinewood!
Large windows and natural light
Lighting is extremely important for wedding couples because it allows their photographers and videographers to capture the most special day of their lives without any complications. We’ve specifically designed our building to allow as much natural light as possible including floor-to-ceiling windows and nice light walls.
Large lounge area
On the first floor, there is a welcoming, spacious gathering area for our guests to arrive and feel right at home. It features a seating area with a fireplace feature anchoring the room and a dominating two-story glass wall in the front of the building so you can enjoy nature from inside.
Tables and chairs
We provide tables and chairs for all of your guests for ceremony and reception. For an outdoor ceremony, there are permanent benches built into the landscaping outside. For an indoor ceremony and reception, separate furnishings will be provided in each room, so there will never be a need for a room flip or moving chairs.
There is parking in our private parking lot located onsite. We also have handicapped parking to accommodate those who need it. We have 110 parking spots and recommend a shuttle if your guest count is over 200!
We have wheelchair-accessible parking spaces, bathrooms, and an elevator to access the 2nd floor.
Large bathrooms with premium finishes
Our bathrooms are oversized and have high-end finishes to ensure you and your guests are comfortable during your event.
Large panoramic doors
On the first floor, there are three 14 foot premium patio doors. These doors allow an ample amount of natural light into the reception area and also provide an indoor/outdoor space for our guests to enjoy the comforts of indoors with the beauty of nature, all at the same time.
Climate controlled year-round
We are prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings our way! Our building is state of the art when it comes to climate control. Whether it’s the hottest days of summer or the coldest of winter, we have you covered. Our building has commercial heating and cooling systems to keep you and your guests comfortable under any circumstance.
