The Grand Ely Lodge wedding venue makes it easy to host anything from an intimate ceremony on the shores of Shagawa Lake to an elegant 200-guest soiree in the Ridgeview Room to a cherished occasion in either the Sunrise or Sunset Rooms. Use the beauty of nature as the backdrop to your nuptials with a stunning larger ceremony on the back lawn, overlooking exceptional lake views. With indoor and outdoor options available, the resort is ideal in any season, no matter what the weather has in store. Ely is a 2 hour drive north of Duluth. This venue is a small wedding package for inside, but does have some additional travel fees.
What people say
The room at Ely Lodge and Resort was awesome. Our wedding turned out great. Was very happy with the lighting and would recommend to anyone. It added so much to the room.
Ken/Duluth Event Lighting did an AMAZING job!! I live in California, so trying to decide on lighting for my wedding in MN and not being able to see it in person seemed like it was going to be tricky. Rest assured, Ken truly took great care of me. He helped answer all my questions and gave me great suggestions, and come the day of the wedding (still not meeting him nor seeing the lighting in person), he ended up matching the lighting perfectly to the color scheme of my wedding (blush, navy, rose gold and gold - I had a soft pink lighting (he called it a peach-ish color of pink)). Our wedding venue was astonishing. I wish there was an option to leave a photo because I was THAT impressed! :) I am so happy we decided to go with Duluth Event Lighting. Thanks for making our day that much more beautiful, Ken!
