"We are delighted to go home with another Best of Award," Becky Bohnenstingl, Grand View Lodge's wedding planner, said in a news release. "It is a pleasure to work with couples making all of their expectations come true in our beautiful Brainerd lakes area. Our iconic Grand Staircase, intimate vineyard setting and our recent patio renovation of On The Rocks are just a few areas that make us such a unique destination venue. It is wonderful to be recognized by so many people for our efforts."
