The Hutton House offers a great wedding venue for couples looking for a combination of urban and rural.

A modern farmhouse design, The Hutton House is located in a suburb on Medicine Lake just 10 minutes west of downtown Minneapolis. The Hutton House offers a rural property with a contemporary, urban feel for couples that want to get away from the city without actually getting away.

The Hutton House features a number of amenities including on-site parking for up to 140 vehicles, hi-speed Wi-Fi, indoor and outdoor sound systems, a screen and projector in both the Lakeside and Fireside rooms, a warming kitchen, full bar service, seating for up to 300 guests, an outdoor courtyard, and many more.

The 3,200 square-foot outdoor courtyard can accommodate up to 300 standing guests. Lined with bluestone and astroturf landscape that remains green all year, the outdoor courtyard provides a private outdoor oasis right in the backyard. Equipped with a fire pit and speakers, the courtyard is available to guests year-round, including a tent for the cold winter months.

Inside, The Hutton House features two rooms, the Lakeside and Fireside. The Lakeside can accommodate up to 300 seats depending on the layout of the event. The larger of the two rooms, this space is open, elegant, and warm with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous lighting fixtures, all on dimmers to create the perfect ambiance. Additionally, the Lakeside has several windows that allow natural light to flow in and open to the lush green outdoor courtyard. The room has a built-in custom bar, but portable bars are also available for setup.

The Fireside is a smaller room, seating up to 150 guests. Though a bit cozier, the Fireside has the same elegant, warm appeal as the Lakeside and includes a white brick gas fireplace. It also has large sliding glass doors that open up to eight feet, which create a unique indoor/outdoor combined experience for guests. The Fireside also boasts a lot of natural lighting and ambiance.

If you’re looking to make a dramatic entrance, The Hutton House also features a long, elegant staircase perfect for the wedding party to descend down. You will surely take your partner’s breath away with an entrance as picturesque as that.

The Hutton House has a long list of recommended vendors from jewelry to make up to flowers. For catering, The Hutton House works with delicious local caterers like Chowgirls Killer Catering, Create Catering, Marna’s Catering, Crave Catering & Events, D’Amico Catering, and Liquid Motion.

Before the Hutton House was The Hutton House, the building was home to the Chateau at Medicine Lake, which was also a wedding venue. After being completely demolished, the property was reconfigured and The Hutton House was built brand new. Once construction began in February 2017, the entirety of the property was finished in November 2017.

The Hutton House welcomes all couples to share their big day at their property, and they’re becoming a popular spot for GLBT couples to tie the knot.

Designed to appeal to people searching for a variety of different styles for different types of events, The Hutton House provides versatility to anyone who walks through its doors. A clean, warm, and welcoming palette that can be simple and elegant on its own can also become a space entirely customized by the client.

Though The Hutton House just opened in November, business has been going well. With a busy 2018 wedding season ahead, The Hutton House is also trying to get involved in other events, too. In addition to weddings, staff at The Hutton House is hopeful that corporate, non-profit, and social clients will be interested in hosting events at the venue, too.

As The Hutton House prepares for the busy spring wedding season, couples are already lining up to say “I do” at the cozy, urban setting throughout the rest of the year. The Hutton House encourages GLBT couples to check out their venue and enjoy the destination wedding of their dreams, just 10 minutes away from the heart of their city.
