Here are my Top 7 Reasons to Book your Wedding at The Radisson in La Crosse, WI:

The Radisson’s Location in Downtown La Crosse, WI

The Radisson is located along the Mississippi River in downtown La Crosse, WI. This area of La Crosse undoubtedly provides couples with many advantages regarding their wedding day. However, it is also beneficial for your guests to have the optimal experience as they celebrate your day.

The Radisson is within walking distance of The Charmant, Pearl Street, and many other attractions and restaurants. Not to mention it is right alongside Riverside Park. Your guests will have plenty to do during that in-between moment from ceremony to reception.

Radisson’s Proximity to Riverside Park for Wedding Photos

As I have noted in the previous paragraph, The Radisson is alongside Riverside Park. When you exit the Radisson, you step directly onto the park’s grassy scenery looking over the Mississippi River.

I could go on and on about what Riverside Park can provide for you and your guests. However, from a photography standpoint, being close to the park makes portrait session time a breeze. The park provides a scenic backdrop for any portraits during the day. There is also a spectacular golden hour as the sun sets behind the Mississippi River bed. Of course, you have the perfect spot to get photos with La Crosse’s infamous “blue bridge” in the background.

Radisson’s Proximity to Downtown La Crosse

Riverside Park will provide you with beautiful foliage and a gorgeous sunset. However, you are also just a couple blocks away from downtown. La Crosse’s downtown area provides picturesque and historical opportunities for you and your photographer. I have utilized the beautiful glow of Pearl Street’s lights many times for wedding day twilight sessions.

Getting Ready Suites + Wedding Accommodations at The Radisson

The Radisson in La Crosse has abundant modern architecture and bright, natural window light within the building. This will be particularly beneficial for your photographer to complete some of the bridal details shots.

For you and your wedding party, spacious suites are offered on The Radisson’s upper floor. As a result, the suites provide the ultimate getting ready and accommodations experience for your wedding day. In addition to the space, the suites feature a kitchen, living area, and a separate bedroom. Of course, views of the mighty Mississippi are there to enjoy with your wedding morning mimosa.

Pro tip: ask housekeeping to tidy the room after everyone heads to the ceremony. When you return for your wedding night, you can enjoy the luxury of the room to kick off your honeymoon.

Pamper Your Wedding Party with Radisson’s “High Noon” Tea Spread

While you and your wedding party are getting ready, take advantage of The Radisson’s incredible catering chefs and executives. Have them deliver one of their “High Noon” tea spreads. They are filled with gorgeous bites and refreshments in an equally picture-worthy display. Note that the macaroons’ color resembles the can of the bride’s favorite bubbly water. I mean, c’mon! That is perfection.

Radisson’s Unique Wedding Meal Catering Options

The Radisson catering and bar service team can help provide your wedding day with unique and beautiful food and beverages. For instance, they can take a standard buffet and create an upscale experience through expertly decorated food stations. Not to mention, their pastry chef can knock your dessert options right out of the park!

Radisson’s Wedding Reception Lounge Versus a Ballroom Reception

The Radisson can create a different vibe than most might be used to seeing with a standard hotel ballroom. This can undoubtedly lead to wedding images that have a more upscale, luxurious feel. With perfectly placed uplighting and added lounge furniture, you and your guests can celebrate as if in an exclusive New York club.

At any rate, if you are considering a wedding at The Radisson in La Crosse, I hope this was an insightful look at their options.

Lastly, I would love to chat about what Pink Spruce Photography can offer once you book The Radisson. Above all else, I cannot wait to be a small part of your big day!
