    Beautiful garden for the ceremony

    The Sunken Garden is a perfect wedding ceremony venue. It's already equipped with flowers so you don't have to spend money on flowers for the ceremony. Saves money! Reasonable price.

    I got married in the sunken garden on 9/24/16, and it was absolutely beautiful and perfect! The pictures we took were all breathtaking! I would recommend to anyone to get married here!

I love Como. I grew up visiting the zoo and my favorite places for photography are the Sunken Garden, the Fern Room, and the Merry-Go-Round! There is also a nice overlook with pillars on a rocky cliff right outside the Conservatory. The people are nice and I've done several Como wedding fairs! I've been a part of some awesome magazine shoots for Knitter's Universe with professional models out of Chicago and they did a complete spread, you guessed it, right at Como! The location was hand picked for it's scenic backgrounds. You know you're at Como when you see the Palm Dome! If you go at the right time of day you can get a striking reflection in the pool outside.

Ahh...the magic and beauty of Como! Truly, Como delivers pristine ambience. There is no shortage of amazing places to capture fine art photography. The staff is great to work and are certain to satisfy anyone's taste. We can't wait to be there again! - | 651-227-1202 | Voted Minnesota Bride "All-Around Best Wedding Vendor"
