  • I am so happy that Ellen with Northland Special Events was a part of my wedding day. We utilized their planning, decorating, balloon, and floral services which made our lives so much easier the day of the event. Ellen was a pleasure to work with and took care of all of our needs throughout the entire process. Both my wife and I were blown away with just how beautiful everything turned out, and also how much better our day went because of NSE. We highly recommend anyone to contact NSE if you are putting together an event you want brought to the next level.

  • I cannot say enough amazing things about Northland Special Events and our event coordinator Kyla! We planned our wedding from out of state, and Kyla was amazing at helping us plan things over the phone, email, and a few meetings in person (when we could make it to the area) to help us bring our vision to life. The flowers, table centerpieces, and signage that was provided by NSE was exactly what we were hoping they would be, and I received many complements about my bridal bouquet. Kyla was amazing to have around on the day of our wedding and checked up on everyone frequently to make sure we were doing ok and did not need anything. She really helped take away a lot of my stress and helped everything go so smoothly before and during the ceremony, as well as during the reception!

  • When people ask me how my wedding was, one of the first things I say is that it was great, and it was great because we hired a fantastic day-of-coordination service. Seriously, we could not have done it without them. When we first got engaged, I wasn't sure we really needed a day-of-coordinator, but hiring one is now my #1 tip I give other brides. From start to finish, I felt like Mariah just "got" us. I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted on a lot of details, but even without articulating it, Mariah and her staff were able to deliver something better than I imagined. Every detail was surprisingly beautiful. She took away so much of my stress during those busy last couple of weeks. Everything I had anxiety about, she was able to quickly resolve with a easy, "no problem" attitude. She answered every question we had and gave us an incredible sense of confidence. We ended up having unexpectedly bad weather. The beautiful outdoor ceremony we'd planned with fall colors ended up being co... Read more

  • I really don't even know where to begin. Northland Special Events was a godsend for our wedding. Right at the first phone call, I knew I would hire them. Lynda took my call and spent 20 minutes giving me venue ideas, etc. - at this point I hadn't paid them a thing and had received some of the best information I'd had . That's the kind of first impression that you never forget ! Mariah got my vibe and what I was looking for even when I didn't know how to get my ideas across. If wedding planning isn't really your "thing" you'll never regret hiring them. I had very specific ideas about what I wanted, and no idea how to execute them as well as no patience for any of it. Mariah took this all off my plate, gave me ideas I'd never had, and made my vision come to life. That, coupled with the knowledge that my family and friends didn't have to be concerned with logistics the day of, made this the best money we spent for our wedding. Truly cannot recommend Northland Special Events eno... Read more

  • Thank you so much Mariah, Ellen, Sydney and all the rest of the crew who had a hand in making our wedding the best day of our lives. From our first meeting to the last I never questioned your abilities and expertise. Everything you did was flawless. All the floral, centerpieces, coordinating our rehearsal and our wedding day was well worth the pricing. This was my favorite expense because it made us the most happy and RELAXED. Mariah is literally a fairy godmother who made all my dreams come true.

  • I can not recommend NSE and Mariah's team enough, they help you through every step of the wedding planning process. I felt so close with Mariah during the planning that I ended up choosing her as our wedding officiant as well. Everyone at NSE wants you to have your dream wedding and they will go to the ends of the earth to make your day the perfect day for you. Thank you to the team for making our wildest dreams come true!

  • Planning a wedding from the groom’s perspective I had no idea the amount of work and stress that goes into it by the bride. My wife and I just got married 8/11/18. I am much more of a easy going “you decide babe” kinda guy. My wife on the other hand put her heart and soul into planning this wedding. She was also working overtime for her career and ran out of time for planning. We decided to hire NSE about a year before our big day. We live about two and a half hours from Duluth and we’re thinking that we possibly needed help. I was skeptical about paying someone for something we could do ourselves. About 2 weeks before our day we sat down for our final meeting. My wife was feeling a level of stress of 10 out of 10 and I was really worried. After our final meeting however Mariah and the team relieved us of the nagging stress. Not only does she seamlessly bring everything together, she is also like a therapist in working with the bride. She was able to speak with my wife in a way... Read more

  • NSE not only exceeded our expectations but blew them out of the water! I have known Mariah and her team for some time but to work with them on our wedding was a dream come true. Each meeting we had was a ton of fun and all of my visions, simply put, came alive on the day of the wedding! One of the most special moments was when Darrin and I were able to walk into the ballroom for our "First Look" with Mariah and we were speechless. Every detail, every meeting, came alive in that ballroom! It was spectacular, unique, and so very special to us. I would encourage all brides to hire NSE for their wedding it takes all of the stress off the bride, bridesmaids, families, etc. The weekend should be enjoyed and that is definitely what we had with NSE leading the way! We would hire NSE again and again and will continue to for all the events that come our way. You have a lifelong client!

  • NSE is amazing!! Ellen and her team went above and beyond for our big day. It was pouring rain and they were running umbrellas back and forth, getting soaked themselves, but ensuring we were staying dry. The room was put together exactly how I imagined. They also loaded up all of the presents and decor and packed up our car so all we had to do was leave in the morning. They are easy to communicate with, professional, and SO FUN to have be a part of our big day! 100% recommend.

  • We are so thankful we made the decision to work with NSE. Our coordinator was Mariah, and she did a wonderful job! We basically showed her what we liked and she made it happen! I showed her pictures from Pinterest and she made them appear in real life! We got all of our decor, linen and flowers from NSE and we purchased the “day of coordinator” package which was probably the best money spent out of the whole wedding! Mariah was there all day and night making sure everything was set up and ready to go! She even met with us the night before to go through rehearsal. Mariah is the best and a must!

  • We had a glitzy, glam wedding at Greysolon Plaza in June, and NSE made it look perfect. We had gold sequin overlays and gold sequin runners for our tables, and they also did the gorgeous sparkly setup for our dessert table. We also had ivory chair covers and gold chair sashes and numerous large and small signage. Everything looked AMAZING! My husband and I received and keep receiving compliment after compliment about how beautiful it was, and we owe it in large part to Bridget and the team at NSE and their incredible work and rentals. THE BEST!

  • We really enjoyed working with NSE to plan our wedding at Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN. They did the decor and flowers for us. Overall, they were great to work with - professional, flexible, and had great vision / ideas! My only minor complaint was our flowers were dying by the time pictures started - although it was an extremely hot day for Duluth, we weren't expecting so many wilted flowers. Other than that everything was amazing! Highly recommend NSE for your wedding as they are a one stop shop in the Duluth Market.
