Our Minnesota Wedding Venue Bucket List

There are SO MANY beautiful wedding venues in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota, we wanted to share our "Bucket List" of venues we would love to work at (and maybe give you some venue inspiration!)

As Twin Cities wedding photographers, we LOVE to work with amazing couples to create beautiful memories of their big day.  There are only 52 weekends in a year, so naturally, there are still HUNDREDS of amazing venues we haven't gotten to work at yet!  That's where you come in. 

A simple Minnesota wedding venue search on The Knot will tell you that there are almost ONE THOUSAND wedding venues listed for rental in the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota / western WI region.  There are others, including private venues and family farms, that are also rented for weddings and not even listed in this particular wedding directory.  So in other words, there are an incredible number of stunning venues in this beautiful state -- and we want to see more of them!

Below, you'll find our "Minnesota Bucket List" of wedding ceremony and reception venues in the Twin Cities area and beyond that we would love to work at.  Are you getting married at one of these venues?  Earn a sweet deal when you book us for your wedding photography needs at these beautiful venues!  (Details below)


AKA... our (incomplete and always growing) list of amazing Minnesota wedding venues that we would love the opportunity to photograph your beautiful wedding at!
