 1. Experienced

One thing you definitely don’t want is an inexperienced or new venue for your wedding reception. You and your guests want to know everyone in the kitchen and serving staff know exactly what they’re doing, and ensure the food is safe and delicious.

Since 1971, the Great Blue Heron has been serving customers as a restaurant and catering company across Central Minnesota. Our track record is unbeatable in the area.

2. Flexible

It’s also important that your wedding reception venue and staff show they’re able to handle any situation that arises at your wedding.

At Great Blue Heron, we’re willing to help you with any size group, in any arrangement, indoor or outdoor! We have decor, tables and chairs to use here, or we can help you find appropriate decor elsewhere to bring in.


3. Satisfied Customers

At Great Blue Heron, we’re proud to be a family-owned, local business. We thrive on taking care of each and every customer like they’re our family.

No matter what a wedding venue manager says, the most important thing to know is what previous customers say. That’s why we make sure all of our reviews are displayed in a single location, right on our website, so you can get a complete view of what people think of our work. Take a look at what Andrew J. Young had to say about a wedding we catered:

“As the owner of an events space, I was extremely concerned about the quality and execution of each service we chose to use at our wedding hosted in our family's yard on Lake Koronis . . . After interviewing, taste testing and proposal reviewing, it was clear that we should use Blue Heron. Paul and the Blue Heron ended up surpassing our high expectations and standards.”


4. Excellent Food

One of the most memorable things about any wedding reception is the food! A good wedding venue and caterer will set up a tasting with you so you can sample a variety of dishes.

At Great Blue Heron, we can create nearly anything you can dream of and have it catered hot and ready at our wedding reception venue in Cold Spring, MN.
