Anna and Tyler are both outdoor enthusiasts who share a love for travel, especially to National Parks, so a wedding at the beautiful Northern Oaks venue was the perfect fit for them. They surrounded themselves with friends, family and nature. What more could they ask for?! The white tent that hosted their dinner and dance reception was perfectly decorated with National Park inspiration. It was probably my favorite decor ever seen…and I’ve been to hundreds of weddings;)
Northern Oaks Event Center
Northern Oaks is a new event center located in the heart of Central Minnesota. It is surrounded by tall Oak trees, a pond and an incredible log home. The story of this new wedding venue is a touching one to say the least…
Barb and Dan Kirchner, Danielle and Rachelle’s parents, built their dream log home for their family of six in 2000. Two short years later, Dan lost his life in a work related accident leaving Barb to manage the home, run the business and raise their four kids. After many successful years of keeping the family healthy and property maintained, the decision was made for Barb to downsize. To hold this very special place in their hearts, sisters Danielle and Rachelle, along with Danielle’s husband Andrew, dreamed up Northern Oaks.
We chose our venue Northern Oaks Events because it was unique and captivated our inspiration to have a wedding in the woods. The log home and the grounds were absolutely beautiful and the staff were welcoming and supportive of our wishes.Anna
Wedding Reception Details… from the Bride
Tyler and I enjoy sampling food trucks, so we knew that we wanted one for our wedding, and Just North of Memphis BBQ food truck offered delicious BBQ food served with small town hospitality.
Our day of coordinator Kaylee did a phenomenal job with ensuring the set up and flow of the day went smoothly.
National Park Wedding Theme
Our national park decor theme was inspired by our love for the outdoors and our drive to continue to explore. We got engaged in Smokey Mountain National Park and we plan on honeymooning next summer in Acadia National Park! We are actually doing a two week road trip to Niagara Falls, Boston, Salem, Camden, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I have been to many National Parks and cannot wait to share new experiences with Tyler as we explore many more National Parks in our marriage.
We want to thank everyone that helped make our special day absolutely perfect and a day we will never forget!Anna + Tyler
