Welcome to Our Preferred Vendor List

Welcome to Our Preferred Vendor List


Hello!

I'm Aimee and Northern Pacific Center is pretty much my favorite place on earth.  I am the owner of The NP Event Space and couldn't be more thrilled to share this space with locals from the Brainerd Lakes area as well as those from Minneapolis and all of greater Minnesota.  My passion for the site started with my photography studio is located in the Clocktower.  I have lots of love for the entire property and feel like it's my second home.  From here I operate my photography business Aimee Jobe as well as Operations at Northern Pacific Center.

 

Our vendors lists great people that are tried and true in the area.  We have this list for two main reasons.  First, because we are that good.  Between the people listed, there should be a style or business that fits your wedding.  Second, we know the property and respect the rules.  It is very important to me that all events held at The NP hire vendors that are qualified, respectful and insured.  As always, you are welcome to use vendors of your choice that are not listed here.  We do require prior approval as well as proof of insurance.

 

Keep scrolling down to view preferred vendors in a variety of services.  Thank you!

Photography is my first passion and continues to run my life.  Photography is also the reason The NP Event Space exists.  I knew there had to be something that churned my creativity and had more options for wedding couples at the same time.  And the killer bridal getting ready suite is just a plus...there is no where else in the area where you can find such beautiful light and an open area to have an enjoyable time while getting ready for your big day.  ;)
