    We love the Arb!

    Planning a wedding in a pandemic is no joke, but my husband and I were so grateful for all of the kindness, flexibility, and patience of the Arboretum staff - Carissa and her team know how to host a beautiful wedding!! Carissa answered my hundreds of questions leading up to the day and helped our vision for a small, intimate ceremony in the beautiful gardens come to life. I am so thankful that we chose to get married at the Arboretum, and the beauty of the setting itself really showed on our perfect fall day!

    The team at the MN Landscape Arboretum is great! They work fast and efficiently and they care about making your day special. The Snyder Auditorium is a beautiful space for a small wedding ceremony and reception! I recently coordinated a brunch wedding there and the food for the brunch was amazing! I heard several of the guests comment on how good the food was. It's the whole package! Great staff, beautiful spaces and excellent food; you can't go wrong picking the MN Landscape Arboretum for your next event. I look forward to working with them again!

  • Carina Photographics Wedding Photographers

    I have photographed weddings/engagements at the MN Landscape Arboretum, and I highly recommend them to couples looking for gorgeous, outdoor wedding venues. There are so many gorgeous gardens and landscaped vistas that my couples just go wild about the beautiful photos they receive from spending their wedding day here. The staff is top notch, and the catering is fabulous as well. I highly recommend the MN Landscape Arboretum to anyone looking for a gorgeous outdoor landscape for their big day!
