Your wedding is a special day to spend with your spouse reaffirming your love for each other and committing to a lifelong partnership. You can celebrate it however, you feel it is most appropriate. If you are not the big grand wedding type and prefer a small intimate ceremony for close family and friends, there are a couple of Minnesota wedding venues that could work great for you.
Countryside lodges are the best place to escape the hustle and bustle of the cities and enjoy a small intimate wedding with your close family and friends. The drive away from the city can land you in a serene environment that combines the best of nature and a homey lodge where you can enjoy a quiet moment with the ones you love. In the land of a thousand lakes, there are plenty of lakeside lodges where you can have a lakeside wedding enjoying the lake breezes and the canopy of lush trees.
Exclusive Hotel Ballrooms and Domes
If you do not want to make the commitment of going too far out of town, there are plenty of hotels in the major cities where you can find exclusive rooms to hold your wedding reception. These hotels provide plenty of seating and affordable menus to ensure your guests are well entertained during your reception.
Small restaurants outside city limits
Stepping outside the city is the best way to find Minnesota wedding venues that are suitable for a small group. Just a couple mile drives outside of the city and you can find restaurants and small inns that specialize in hosting small and intimate wedding receptions. These restaurants can hold wedding parties with as little as fifty guests while making the event special and memorable. You can search for the small Inns and restaurants just outside the city limits for the best quotes for wedding ceremonies.
You can decide to take your small wedding party on a Yacht too. For a nautical themed wedding, a yacht is a perfect way to host a few guests away from the prying eyes of the public. You can ask for the yacht to be taken to a perfect little spot on the lake here you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding cities and towns. For the best experience, have a late afternoon to evening wedding when the city lights illuminate the horizon.

Videographer Megan Fritze caught it all on tape.
Dan is from Eagan, Minnesota, and Jackie is from Wadena, Minnesota. They met through mutual friends that happened to both be standing on the dock.
As guests arrived for the ceremony in Crosslake, Minnesota, Dan and Jackie Anderson were still drying off, but the wedding went ahead as planned.

His doctor said his youth as well as the soft patch of mulch he landed on helped contribute to his survival.
Family and friends in Minneapolis’s Somali community say the family is in shock.
“When people found out he survived, no one could believe it,” community activist Abdirizak Bihi told the Star-Tribune newspaper.
“I’m more concerned about his dad and his mother,” Abdirizak Bihi said.
“They’re devastated. They can’t even speak.”
Dr. Tina Slusher, who treated baby Musa, said an adult who fell from that distance would almost certainly be dead.
“Little [children] are more flexible and don’t break as easily as we do and he also fell in a very small patch of mulch,” she told local broadcaster KARE.
Dr. Tina Slusher added it was “definitely a miracle. It’s God’s gift to his family. Kids don’t fall this far and make it often”.

Uncle Si Robertson may be just as elusive after arriving in Minnesota via private plane.

Ticket prices range from $30 to $250.
