We are lucky, here in Minnesota. Not because we are nowhere near any earthquake inducing fault lines, nor is it because we lack the surmounting issues of overpopulation or dangerous pollution levels (there's plenty of 'sota for everyone here). No, it's much simpler than that, we are lucky because we have this thing, this thing that might be the bane of some people's existence, we have seasons.
Oh. You thought it was going to be something different?
Having a real summer, a real spring and fall, and the longest winter this side of Canada ever, is a reward. It means you can have most any type of wedding that you want. We've even got shorelines!! (Thank you Lake Superior for acting like an ocean). This also means I have got a real great collection of venues for you, a venue for every season!
