There are the wedding photos and videos that you look back on and think, Wow, THAT was a trend that I’m glad has moved on. There are others that take your breath away with timeless and classic beauty, even decades later. Woodhaven weddings are definitely the latter. With contemporary architecture, beautiful neutrality, and space for up to 350 guests, the weddings they host are effortlessly elegant and will withstand the test of time.
Woodhaven is the perfect balance of Minnesota’s natural beauty with a contemporary and sophisticated aesthetic. They are dedicated to helping each of their couples have a seamless wedding experience, from the moment you begin planning through your last dance of the evening on the day that you pledge to love your person for the rest of time. Plus, with two beautiful indoor spaces, you won’t have to take the temperamental Minnesota weather into consideration!
Begin your wedding day by getting ready in one of two suites (your partner will get ready in the other), each with a private bathroom and lots of space and bright light. There are also adjoining private lounges with smart TVs and plenty of comfy furniture for relaxing before the ceremony begins.
Woodhaven has two spaces, one for ceremonies and the other for receptions. Both spaces are similar in style, with high vaulted ceilings, pristine white walls, and dozens of large windows framed in black for a modern contrast. Both rooms are such beautiful, neutral spaces that even minimalist greenery makes a breathtaking impact, but it’s just as gorgeous with opulent decor, so customize the space to your heart’s content!
There is a cosmopolitan cocktail bar area that connects the ceremony and reception space, perfect for guests as you transition from one part of your event to the next. Guests can mingle at high-top tables, grab a seat at the bar, or warm up by the gorgeous fireplace. Then, when you’re ready, the reception space has a balcony that overlooks the dining and dance space below, which is perfect for a grand re-entrance to your celebration.
Woodhaven is a part of Gopher Hills Golf Course. So the venue is surrounded by spectacular green lawns, big beautiful trees, and gentle hills – all of which make great photo backdrops for beautiful outdoor portraits. There are neat paths we can wander down for more scenic pictures, perhaps with your full bridal party. Indoors, there is so much beautiful natural light streaming in through the windows, perfect for timelessly sophisticated pictures. We can also have you and your partner pose on the staircase for dramatic photos that will perfectly capture your love in editorial-style fashion. The possibilities are pretty endless!
Woodhaven knows that exceptional food is key to a fantastic wedding. So they’ve narrowed their catering options to two vendors known for consistent quality and, of course, deliciousness. All of your other vendors are entirely up to you. Though they do have a list of preferred vendors they’ve worked with before if you need a few recommendations.
Woodhaven weddings are centered on elegance, sophistication, and romance. Check out their website for more photos and details. But if you are inspired by what you see, be sure to arrange a tour to see it in person!
But if Woodhaven isn’t the wedding of your dreams, there are many more venues in the links below! So check them out and find the perfect space for your special day. Then, let’s start talking about how we are going to use the space to take the most incredible photos! You and your partner will be able to look back on them with pride for the rest of your lives.
