Guthrie Theater winter wedding – Megan + Reed

A Guthrie Theater Wedding to truly show the best of Minneapolis

Why choose the Guthrie Theater for a wedding? Megan and Reed’s celebration is a perfect showcase for the combination of elegance and playfulness that is the hallmark of weddings at the Guthrie.

In planning their wedding from New York, they chose to show the sophisticated side of the Twin Cities – the views of the Mississippi, world-class architecture, and a cosmopolitan style.

As a Minnesota transplant myself, I also delight in showing off Minneapolis in winter to East Coasters.


The Guthrie spans many floors, and this wedding made good use of the views and architectural details of the public spaces. The ceremony, in the 9th floor Amber Box space, overlooked the Mississippi river just as dusk set in. For cocktail hour on the 4th floor endless bridge, the winter views of the bridges and river from the 4th floor Endless bridge were a perfect backdrop. Guests returned to the 9th floor black box theater for dinner and spilled back into the Amber box for late night dancing.

The warmth of the gathering far outweighed the cold of December, and the icy views show off the Mississippi river in all its dangerous beauty.
