What makes us different

a beautiful lakeside setting

Located lakeside on Clark Lake in Nisswa, Catalyst's intentional architecture was designed to highlight the beauty of the lake with every view.

Here at Catalyst, we are committed to serving our clients by not only exceptional customer service, but also through the design of the building! Built by multi-venue owners, we know what it takes to make a space not only beautiful, but functional for our couples, their guests, and the vendors that they work with.
