I'm from MN but currently live in Colorado. We are wanting to marry in June 2011 in MN, somewhere close to the cities. Ideally, we'd like an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception. I'm having trouble researching on the internet because only the larger, popular venues have a lot of information.
Does anyone have suggestions on where we might be able to host an outdoor ceremony (preferabally in a garden, on a lake, or with some beautiful scenery). Or, suggestions for the indoor reception where we can bring our own liquor and have catering options? I'm interested in this option to cut costs.
