The Best Places for a Wedding Proposal in Minnesota

  1. Urban Picturesque
  2. Country Scenery
  3. Meaningful to You

Urban Picturesque

Stone Arch Bridge: Nothing says Minneapolis like this beautiful spot. Bonus: come back here for your engagement or wedding photos for a great story!

Walker Art Center and Sculpture Garden: In the shadow of the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis is the popular Spoonbridge & Cherry, the highlight of the Walker’s Sculpture Garden—the largest urban sculpture garden in the world.

Minneapolis Institute of Art: If the Walker is the contemporary art center of the city, the Minneapolis Institute of Art is the classic, comprehensive collection of art that makes a beautiful background to any proposal. With its classical columns and green spaces, MIA is a sophisticated option right in the city.

US Bank Stadium or Target Field: If sports are more your speed (and you’re not worried that the jumbotron proposal is a bit overplayed), grab some tickets and pop the question at US Bank Stadium or Target Field.

Country Scenery

Between our beautiful seasons and sparkling lakes, there are many wonderful spots that will inspire the moment.

Lake Superior: From Duluth to Gooseberry Falls to the Split Rock Lighthouse, head up north to some of the best sunsets and natural vistas in the state.

Minnehaha Falls: Simply the most beautiful waterfall in an urban setting.

Apple Orchards and Pumpkin Patches: Fall is breathtaking in Minnesota, and if your personality as a couple is down to earth and natural, try one of the apple orchards or pumpkin patches that dot the Twin Cities and beyond. You could even get “lost” in a corn maze!

Lakeshore: With dozens of lakes in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas, choose one of these beautiful lakeshores to make a beautiful memory.

Meaningful to You

You may find that, if nothing else seems quite right, your perfect spot might be something that is unique and meaningful to you as a couple. Where was your first date? Where did you meet? Where did you realize that this is the person you want to marry? Or maybe you plan your proposal for the comfort of your home, where you can have a truly private moment and set it up however you like.

No matter where your proposal takes place, your wedding will be beautiful and fairy tale perfect at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. Find out more here.
