Why elope at Cuyuna Cove? If you’re here, you have probably heard about this amazing place on the iron range in Crosby, Minnesota with its nationally renowned mountain biking trails, glamping cabins and tents, and the adorable town main street just down the road. But just in case you haven’t heard of this gem, take a look at what the fuss is all about here!
Ok, now we know about Cuyuna – cute right?! Well, it gets cuter! Keep reading to find out how Kat & Liz eloped in this wonderland, and tell me it doesn’t sound amazing!
To me, an elopement is an intimate wedding that represents exactly who you are as a couple. Nothing more and nothing less. Maybe you choose to elope to have a special day with just the two of you or to create an epic wedding experience together. Maybe you do it to reduce the waste that come with large weddings. Whatever the reason, it’s a day that will go down in your couple’s history book forever. Above all, it’s a day to celebrate you and the deep love that you share!
Kat and Liz eloped at Cuyuna Cove in May 2021 – come with us on the journey of their wedding weekend to see how amazing an elopement can be!
Cuyuna Cove has 5 amazingly adorable Swedish-style cabins, which Kat & Liz rented out for their families. Here is a glimpse into their wedding weekend:
Kat’s mom and Liz’s best friend helped to make this special couple look their best before seeing each other for the first time! I love the personality that each showed with their outfits and the care they took when choosing each detail!
Kat & Liz did their first look on the deck of the Acro cabin, which, I have to say, was absolutely perfect! You’ll never hear me talking anyone out of doing a first look!
We strolled around the site to take Kat & Liz’s wedding portraits, taking advantage of the natural beauty of Cuyuna as well as the beautiful stringed lights and secret nooks hidden here and there.
Officiant and best friend, Danielle, and DJ and best friend Callan pulled off a wonderfully intimate ceremony for Kat & Liz. The dads built the arbor (seriously, isn’t that floral to die for?) and walked them down the hill to get married! There were big tears and big laughs, and best of all a married couple at the end!
There are a bunch of delicious places to eat on and around main street in Crosby, which is about half a mile from Cuyuna Cove. Grab some pizza at the Red Raven Bike Cafe, wings at the Trailside Tavern and dairy-free ice cream at Victual!
After snacks and pizza, it was time for cake! I still can’t decide if Pie, Pie My Darling’s cakes were more beautiful or more delicious! We all sat around a campfire together telling stories and enjoying each other’s company in the peaceful woods.
‘Nuff said here, ya?
We did it! After an epic weekend with some epic family and friends, Kat & Liz are married and have memories that will remind them of their love for each other. Every time they visit Cuyuna, they will remember how they felt on this day!
