It’s common sense: there’s no better place for a lakeside wedding than the Land of 10,000 Lakes. And there are (undoubtedly) hundreds of amazing wedding venues on a hundred amazing bodies of water in the state of Minnesota. But did you know that the gorgeous state has so much more to offer than glassy ponds?
Nestled in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the Dome at Millennium Hotel offers a breathtaking panorama of the city’s towering skyscrapers through its spherical glass ceiling. It’s an ideal location for anyone wanting to add a bit of metropolitan glam to their big day.
Legacy Hill Farm:Welch

Disclaimer: The following venue is so amazing that some individuals experience sensory overload. The epitome of elegant sophistication, the Greysolon Ballroom is a timeless classic in terms of decor: extravagant chandeliers, intricate ornamental designs, beautiful French doors, and rich hardwood floors. If you’re looking for a venue fit for royalty, you’ve just found it.
The Loft at Studio J: Stillwater
In a unique fusion of vintage-meets-industrial, the Loft at Studio J will add lots of character to your wedding. This unique wedding venue in MN features aged brick walls, exposed vents, hardwood floors, and rustic chandeliers, this offbeat venue tends to attract brides and grooms who gravitate towards all things “quirky” and “original.” (And we didn’t even mention the retro Coca-Cola wall…)

The Fountain Room: Minneapolis
Do you want the illusion of an outdoor wedding (or reception) with the security of an indoor one? The Fountain Room—a beautiful atrium with a layered fountain, exposed brick walls, and even a couple of old iron lampposts—offers a courtyard-like environment with the convenience of shelter, protecting your day from natural enemies (we’re looking at you, precipitation).

Kitchi Gammi Club: Duluth
Cozy, historic, scenic: these are just a few words to describe the centuries-old Kitchi Gammi Club. With its gorgeous late Victorian architecture and stunning views of Lake Superior, a wedding at the Club is sure to make a lasting impression.
The Saint Paul Hotel: Saint Paul
Are you having trouble deciding between an elegantly intimate gathering and a massive rock-fest? The event space at the Saint Paul Hotel is highly customizable. So whether your guest list is comprised of 50 bookworms or 500 party-lovers, you’ll be able to create your perfect event.
Municipal Building Commission: Minneapolis
It can be tempting for some couples to side-skirt the hassle of planning (and paying for) a wedding, and heading down to city hall for spur-of-the-moment nuptials is becoming an increasingly common practice. But quick “I Do’s” are no longer the only ceremonies vying for a place at the city hall in Minneapolis. The castle-like Municipal Building Commission (otherwise known as Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse) is a popular choice for larger weddings, too. And with its stained glass windows, stone staircases, and overall magnificence, it’s no surprise.
Grand View Lodge: Nisswa
For those looking to escape the hassle and bustle of the city, consider retreating to Grand View Lodge to exchange your vows. The relatively secluded location offers the beauty of nature as well as a homey lodge, making it the perfect place for perfect weddings. All that’s up to you is choosing between the breeze off of the nearby lake in the summer, a canopy of vibrant leaves in the fall, and beautiful snow-covered trees in the winter.

Mill City Museum: Minneapolis
While the term “modern ruins” might seem like an oxymoron, consider the Mill City Museum with an open mind. Once the largest flour mill in the world, all that remains of the original structure are a few looming walls. However, the new addition (which has been built right into the old building) offers all the comforts of a perfect event center. So go for a unique wedding in a modern-meets-ancient venue. It makes perfect sense!
