I cannot recommend the Walker Art Center highly enough as a venue for a reception! I recently had my reception in their Skyline Room, which overlooks downtown Minneapolis. The room with its huge at night sparkles in the light of the city. That, the fact that this is my favorite museum, and the food, catered by Wolfgang Puck, were the three reasons why we chose this venue. The food was incredible!! The staff at both The Walker and Wolfgang Puck were fantastic -- both leading up to the date and the day of our wedding. If you're looking for an urban, modern venue in Minneapolis, you can't beat The Walker!

Fantastic location for our wedding. We LOVED the venue- we were married on the terraces with downtown Minneapolis as our backdrop. I walked down the stairs arm in arm with my father with the afternoon sun behind me (it also helped that it was a beautiful day)... The Skyline Room was amazing especially with sun setting and the city lighting up. It was everything I had wanted for my wedding. A little spency but worth every penny.

We held our reception at the Japanese Rock Garden, or Peace Garden at Lake Harriet. The Three Rivers Park District have many twin cities locations available for beautiful outdoor weddings, including the rose garden at lake Harriet, the sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center and the conservatory on site at the Walker. They always allow for you to book a back up site in case of rain (the conservatory at the Walker.) Reservations are inexpensive, and are offered on a first come first serve basis, beginning on the first business day of the calendar year. If you go the first business day of the year- arrive early, and expect a line. It's worth the wait- online reservations do not begin until late morning.
