Northern Pacific Center | Wedding

The Northern Pacific Center is one of our favorite Northern Minnesota wedding venues.  It is located in Brainerd and was built in the 1800’s as part of the Northern Pacific Railroad.  It is truly a one-of-a-kind venue that has everything from warehouses to a white brick bridal suite complete with chandeliers to a massive open ceremony space and a jaw-dropping reception hall with limitless photo opportunities!  Rebecca and Keith fell in love with the venue and knew they wanted to host their summer wedding there alongside a few hundred of their closest family and friends!

We began the day in the gorgeous white bridal suite with Rebecca and her ladies working with Amanda Marx on makeup and Sally Foster on hair.  They did an incredible job and Flower Moxie provided absolutely stunning florals for the day!  The bouquet colors were gorgeous and provided the perfect pop of color against the ladies’ classic black bridesmaid gowns from Weddington Way and Lulu’s.  We were completely in love with Rebecca’s two-piece beaded wedding gown that she found at the Wedding Shoppe!  Keith also looked classy in his black tux from Men’s Warehouse and we had a great time with his first look and portraits with Rebecca, the wedding party, and of course their pups!

The entire day was coordinated seamlessly by Megan Knapek – every detail was absolutely beautiful!  Following an absolutely breathtaking ceremony, we began the reception and enjoyed cake and desserts from Edible Art Bakery.  The food was literally art – gorgeous in every way!  We snuck out for a few golden hour photos following dinner and returned just in time for speeches.  We topped off the night with dancing alongside one of our favorites – the Bluewater Kings Band!  This band is incredible to work with and the night was so much fun!  Rebecca and Keith’s day was incredible and wish them all the best in the many years to come!
