Gunflint Lodge Wedding Coordinator: Meet Carly O’Connor

Planning your perfect wedding is a huge undertaking. That is why we at Gunflint Lodge provide our wedding and elopement couples with the pleasure of planning their special day through our wedding coordinator, Carly. She has been working at the lodge for two years and has “loved every minute of it!” 

Carly is a joy to be around. Her joyous spirit flows into her work as a wedding coordinator. She brings bright and fun ideas to each couple’s special day.

Gunflint Lodge is a popular wilderness wedding destination. Year round weddings and elopements keep love abundant in the fresh air that surrounds us! We enjoy hosting weddings and being surrounded by the love and joy of each wedding party!

Carly has been involved in seamlessly coordinating and executing weddings of a wide variety. Her ability to actualize idyllic fairytale-like weddings is highly valued by those looking to celebrate their marriage in the pristine Northwoods. She spends time walking each wedding couple through choosing the best wedding venue to fit their own personal wedding dream, booking cabins for the couple and their entire guest list, exploring reception locations, and even planning the celebratory activities (hello ZIPLINE!).

Even more, Carly can marry you and your soon-to-be spouse! Carly is a certified officiant. She has married couples on the Gunflint Lodge dock, on the edge of a cliff, in our Boundary Waters Hall, at our secluded lonely lake location, and more! Lovely vows may be provided by her, other times couples choose to write their own heartfelt words of promise to each other. A wedding couple recently told us, “Carly our officiant…made our big day so wonderful!”

Carly is thorough and accommodating. She does everything in her power to make sure that each couple can enjoy their wedding day festivities without the stress that can accompany wedding planning.

We are lucky to be in a location that is gorgeous year-round. We want to share our space with you and your closest family and friends for your special day. The first step to planning your own Gunflint Lodge Wedding Package is to contact Carly. She is looking forward to connecting with you to help create the wedding you have been envisioning.
