Holy wow. Heart eyes were in full bloom when I walked into Pinewood last week for this shoot. Pinewood is a new wedding venue in Minnesota and I can see their elegant space nestled into a small forest as a bride’s dream wedding venue.
Let’s talk about Pinewood’s beautiful space! When you first arrive, you see their beautiful, bold, and tall venue in the woods. They provide parking and have little trails to walk (bonus, they are a dog friendly wedding venue!) When you enter the building, you are in the open-plan foyer. They have a coat room on this level, a lounge, and a groom’s suite. Also on this level is their reception space. This room boasts dreamy white walls, large windows, outdoor patio access and beautifully finished cement floors.
Upstairs you have the bridal suite with so many intentional and cozy touches. Also upstairs you have a more lovely natural light, a mingling area and the ceremony space – a large room (white chairs provided) with, of course, more dreamy white walls, windows, and a tall ceilings.
As their name suggests, they are surrounded by long rows of pine trees. There are so many photo opportunities including log piles, tree lines, and nooks and crannies around the building!
But don’t take my word for it, take a peek at the photos snagged while I was there to be convinced of its beauty. I’ll see you there soon ; )
I got to work with some wonderful wedding vendors around for this shoot! See something you like? These are the vendors that made this day what it was!
