Ceremony Location

Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden

The ceremony will be held in the Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden near downtown Minneapolis MN. It will be outside on the grass near the Gazebo of the Ancients.


We will be enjoying the beautiful urban and natural views of Minneapolis, a city we have grown to love on a (hopefully) beautiful summer afternoon. Because we can’t completely plan out the weather, please keep in mind that it will likely be hot, and there is always a chance it will rain. The temperature ranges from 75 to 85 degrees, and there is around a 2 percent chance of moderate rain for this time of day:

Average weather for Minneapolis on July 26th

We will be having the ceremony rain or shine, and so please plan to wear light clothes, and consider an umbrella just in case. We would rather you be comfortable than formal, so jeans and a T-shirt is better than a black suit!


The sculpture garden is located just off of interstate 94 near the downtown. When coming from the west, just take exit 231B toward Hennepin Avenue/Lyndale Avenue, and then turn right onto Vineland Place. If coming from the east, take exit 231B for Hennepin Avenue/Lyndale Avenue, turn right onto Hennepin/Lyndale and then turn left onto Vineland Pl.
