    Thank You For All You Did

    Thank you for all you did – all the emails back and forth, all the coordination all the last minute details. Everything was just perfect! Choosing Nicollet Island Pavilion as our reception venue was the best decision we made. Everything went so smoothly on Friday, so smoothly that if anything did go wrong, I had no clue! It was absolutely perfect! I appreciate your checking in with my aunt during the evening and everything else that you did. I cannot thank you enough. It was nice to sit back, take everything in and enjoy the evening, knowing that everything was under control. I whole heartedly thank you for making our big day perfect! You were a pleasure to work with and made all the planning that much easier. Thanks again for everything!_x000D_

    Absolutely lovely!

    Our wedding day was absolutely lovely from start to finish! The staff was very kind and helpful. I really felt they were working hard to make us happy with anything and everything, even down to finding a small box for the mini desserts we gathered and didn’t have time to eat. They were wonderful! I do not have a single complaint. My parents and other members stuck around to clean up and they had nice things to say about the staff (and even security!) helping out as well. I just don’t think we could have had a better day! It was wonderful working with Joy! She was so kind, friendly, helpful, realistic, flexible, informative, knowledgeable, etc. The whole process was enjoyable (and a bit stressful), and it was great working with her through it all. Thank you!!!_x000D_

    We absolutely fell in love with Mintáhoe, as much as we fell in love with the venue. You went above and beyond and blew our socks off with incredible service! I always felt informed and appreciated there were no “hidden” costs.
