You Can’t Beat a Fall Lakeside Wedding on Mille Lacs

At The Red Door Resort on the beautiful north shore of Lake Mille Lacs in Aitkin, Minnesota, we offer one of the most pristine autumn lakeside wedding and reception venues in the upper midwest. We are truly your premier Minnesota lake wedding venue… especially after Labor Day.

Autumn in Minnesota is Uncommonly Picturesque

All your guests in one place…

Not just for the ceremony, and not just for the reception, but for the whole night (or even the entire weekend)!

Our summer weekends are packed with families and fishermen, but if you want a romantic setting for your wedding and reception, September/October is the perfect season, and The Red Door Resort on Lake Mille Lacs is the perfect spot.
Book the entire resort and enjoy our 12-acre property for just you and your guests. If you like, hold the ceremony right on our beach – just imagine the fall colors of the leaves and the gentle waves of majestic Lake Mille Lacs at your feet.
If you rent a large event tent for the lakeside lawn, your guests are all set for an evening of dinner and dancing, rain or shine.

Enjoy Both Our Cabins and Motel

Pay Nothing for the Venue

How is that possible?

Well, as long as the minimum is met, the following are included at no additional cost

The Resort Minimum for the

Weddings Weekend is $10,000

Now your guests typically pay for their own accommodations.  So when they book and pay for a cabin or motel room, their reservation counts toward the $10,000 minimum – and get this: assuming your party fills the resort for both nights, you’ll have covered the entire $10,000.  In this case, the wedding couple pays nothing for the venue and only pays for their own lodging and other expenses (see below).

Wait, what about the event center, the cafe, and the harbor slips?

Yep, all paid for when your guests fill the resort.

We’re Getting Married… Don’t We need to Bring Something?

Hey, look, we can’t provide everything, so there are a few things to consider outside of the resort rental:
