Are you on the hunt for the perfect wedding venue, and you have no idea where to even begin? Let me help!
As a wedding and elopement photographer, I have been able to tour so many amazingly gorgeous wedding venues in the Twin Cities area, and have narrowed down which venues are simply the most stunning.
So grab that glass of wine, sit back and relax while I show you the absolute BEST of the BEST for wedding venues around the Minneapolis/St.Paul area!
If you’re looking for an industrial, modern, unique wedding venue – look no further! The Machine Shop was recently renovated in 2016 and became a gorgeous space for events. The Machine Shop is a blank space for you to just get creative and make it into your dream space for your big day.
The Hutton House is simply on the of most GORGEOUS wedding venues there is in the Twin Cities. It is luxurious, sophisticated, modern, and a blank slate. It has a stunning fireplace, an outdoor courtyard, and a TON of parking for your guests! I cannot say enough amazing things about the Hutton House.
This wedding venue isn’t right in Minneapolis, but it is within a reasonable radius that is TOTALLY worth it! Pinewood is a brand new wedding venue nestled in a forest of gorgeous pine trees. The venue is encased with gorgeous windows for the most natural light possible, and 10 acres for you and your guests. This venue is so perfect for just getting away from the hustle and bustle of being in the city, and slowing down to just enjoy your wedding day.
Okay, if you want a wedding venue that makes you feel a queen, Bavaria Downs is the venue for you! This European-style estate is blanketed with oak trees that makes you feel like you’re in a fairytale. The estate is just stunning from every room.
The Blaisdell is elegant, charming, gorgeous, classic and right in downtown Minneapolis! It has a stunning grand ballroom, lounge, private suite, and so much more. Everything about The Blaisdell is simply romantic. It is suited for smaller wedding parties (250-275) but you won’t regret renting this venue for your wedding day. It will make your JAW DROP!
Are you looking for an equally gorgeous wedding venue but want to move away from the industrial, modern venues? Legacy Hill Farm is WHERE IT’S AT! This venue is stunning but also very unique. It has a fire pit, courtyard, air conditioning, and so much more. Legacy Hill Farm is the perfect venue for you if you’re looking for something nestled into the countryside, but with plenty of space for your guests – and something a little less “trendy!”
Watson Block is moody, modern, industrial, bold and historic. This is a smaller wedding venue for more intimate weddings, but it’s still as beautiful as ever. This venue is totally unique, with it’s dark walls, and moody atmosphere.
This BRAND NEW wedding venue in Northeast Minneapolis will make your jaw drop the minute you lay eyes on it! This venue JUST opened, and has gorgeous vaulted ceilings, lots of natural light, plenty of parking, AND an outdoor patio. This venue is also nestled in the creative part on Minneapolis, surrounded by breweries, coffee shops, restaurants and so much more.
If I’m being honest, I’m just loving the industrial, modern wedding venues. PAIKKA is another industrial venue with natural light and gorgeous decor. The venue sits up to 200 guests, seated, so this is perfect for those smaller weddings. This is a wedding venue that’s a little less “popular” but it is truly a hidden gym.
Last but not least, is the gorgeous Abella wedding venue! It has a French Country charm, with lots of space. It is a barn wedding venue, but is definitely not your typical barn! It’s decorated in white, with beautiful lights. There’s also plenty of natural light throughout the venue!
