8 of the Best Minnesota Wedding Venues

Planning Tips


Are you looking for Minnesota wedding venues? We completely understand it can be overwhelming as there are so many to choose from! We had the honor of working at some of the best Minnesota wedding venues in 2023 and wanted to highlight some of them in this blog post. Here are 8 of the Best Minnesota Wedding Venues with each having a different style from one another!

8 of the Best Minnesota Wedding Venues

1. The Essence Event Center – St Paul, MN

The Essence Event Center will always be one of our favorites for many reasons! First, they have some of the largest, and most stunning, getting ready suites. They also have a ceremony space that can turn into the dance area which is separate from the reception space. The venue itself is also gorgeous! It has large ceilings with original wood and steel beams. Forever one of our favorites and had to be at the top of the list for our 8 of the Best Minnesota Wedding Venues! You can read about one of our weddings at the Essence on the blog linked here!

2. Hutton House – Minneapolis, MN

The Hutton House is truly a blank canvas for couples to do anything and everything they need to for their wedding vision to come to life! You have a few ceremony options including their fireside room and their outside courtyard space. The Hutton House truly goes above and beyond for their couples to ensure no detail is missed. You can read about Taylor + Joe’s wedding day at the Hutton House on the blog linked here!

3. Pinewood – Cambridge, MN

If I got married again (orrr vow renewal?! hehe) would be at the top of my list! The first time I walked into Pinewood I was absolutely blown away. The photos are gorgeous but they do not do the beauty of this venue justice! They have their outdoor pinewood ceremony setting which of course is stunning – but they also have a separate ceremony room always set up and ready to go in the event of inclement weather, which is one less thing for you to have to worry about! You can read about our wedding at Pinewood on the blog linked here!

4. Royal Golf Club – Lake Elmo, MN

We’ve had a few weddings at the Royal Golf Club and the venue itself is not only stunning, but the staff is also so wonderful to work with! Their food is always a hit and they have many options as well. The ceremony typically takes place overlooking Horseshoe Lake which serves as a stunning background.

5. Reeds and Rushes – Howard Lake, MN

Reeds and Rushes is a new wedding venue that we had the honor of working at in 2023 and we can’t wait to be back in 2024 as well! It is a lakeside property with a stunning, renovated inside. They also have a fireside hall which can be used for cocktail hour or a small ceremony space, and have two beautiful getting ready spaces as well!

6. The Skyroom – Red Wing, MN

The Skyroom is located on Red Wing Golf Course and is truly a classic, elegant venue! On site it houses The Walsh House which can be rented out with ample amount of space for the bridal party to get ready in!

7. Northern Pacific Center – Brainerd, MN

The Northern Pacific Center is also another one at the top of my list if I ever got married again! It is a stunning, jaw dropping venue with several spaces to choose from! My personal favorite is 2 South and we can’t wait to have another wedding here!

8. Solar Arts – Minneapolis, MN

Solar Arts is a 100 year old wedding and event venue with a lot of history and charm! The space is versatile to fit many different wedding visions. We love how our couple chose to use the space which you can read about in our blog post here!
