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!

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!

Our string quartet loves to play music for the Gala in the Gardens event! The flowers, plants, and lively atmosphere are ideal for enjoying the beauty of the Landscape Arboretum in all of its glory. -- Mary Verrill, violinist, The Saint Paul String Quartet
