Ski lovers in the Twin Cities are already quite acquainted with Hyland Hills Ski Chalet, but did you know this venue is home to some incredible wedding receptions and ceremonies as well? With a view of the Minneapolis cityscape from the top of the ski hill, soaring ceilings in the Alpine room and expansive windows, this Minnesota wedding venue is a hidden gem.

Did I forget to mention that it is located just a couple miles off of I-494, and a few more from highway 100 and 169? This means that no matter where your guests are coming from, they will find the place with ease. Over 40 hotels in Bloomington means they won’t need to worry about driving home either, hotels like the Sheraton offer a shuttle to and from, could these amenities be any better?

Part of the Three Rivers Park District, Hyland Hills Ski Chalet sits amongst a nature preserve, and it shows not only on the property but inside the building. Recently I teamed up with Dillinger Studios for a styled shoot, an opportunity for us wedding vendors to be creative and have some fun. What isn’t always highlighted when you visit the Three Rivers Park District website is the many hidden areas on the property, perfect for bridal portraits and first looks. Take a look for yourself.
