* the food was amazing - we especially loved the prime rib and mac and cheese - crowd favorites * big pine lodge lawn is very beautiful and the shade rolled in just in time for our 3:30 ceremony so ... Read more our guests didn't melt in the sun. * the big pine lodge was so convenient to have for the full weekend - we were able to have folks over the night before the wedding as well as for a wedding after party after the caterers and dj were gone. * we loved having our guests stay in the granlibakken and the wedding party in the lodge with us * meaghen was a pleasure to work with and was able to handle all sorts of requests like using our own custom cups and borrowing some easels.

This place was amazing and just what we were looking for. They have beautiful scenery, incredibly helpful, accommodating and hard working staff, fantastic food, very comfortable lodging and super ... Read more prices! They are all so relaxed here which really helped me to relax and have fun. Jennifer in sales and Sarah our included event coordinator were phenomenal. Any crazy question or request I had they catered to with a smile.

Overall Fantastic Experience
While we ran into some hiccups along the way, we could not have been happier with the way our wedding turned out at Granlibakken. Like others, we went through three separate on-site coordinators ... Read more during the year or so of our planning. That led to challenges, but we were lucky enough to have a fantastic off-site coordinator (Stephanie Morris) who really dealt with the challenges of that in large part. There was an issue at one point with a misquote in cost, but Granlibakken made multiple concessions to make it right, and in the end, I feel completely satisfied with our experience. The current on-site coordinator, Freddy, is fantastic. While I only had the opportunity to meet him in passing (as he transitioned into the role only about one month before our wedding), I understand from our planner that he was great to work with and our communication with him via email was always great. He is timely in his responses and seems to really care about what he does (and is good at it). Hopefully he will stick around! The execution day-of was honestly flawless. We received so many compliments about how quickly and stealthily the Big Pine Lawn was turned over for dinner during cocktail hour, the bartenders were fantastic, food was amazing, etc., etc. The space is also really beautiful. I think honestly some of the photos they have on their site don’t do it justice and show its complete potential. It was important to us that our friends and family be able to stay on site somewhere with us so that we could really spend good quality time with everyone over the course of our wedding weekend, and Granlibakken gave us exactly that situation. We enjoyed using the Big Pine Lodge as a general gathering/hanging out space, and it was so amazing to have everything for our wedding ceremony and reception in the same place. If you are looking for a venue with on-site accommodations, a chill vibe, natural beauty, and a relatively low site fee, definitely check out Granlibakken. Note: I left 4 stars for responsiveness because of our overall experience in communication, particularly with turnover in on-site coordinators and just a couple of other minor things. Freddy, the current coordinator was always great with communication. I would recommend hiring your own planner just to help with the process and in case there is turnover during your planning. I think that really goes for any site, not just Granlibakken. Hopefully Freddy stays, but you will not regret having the help of a coordinator who is "attached" to you and not a site.
