There’s good reason why Historic Irvine Park is the most popular wedding ceremony location in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The park is absolutely beautiful with its giant ornate water fountain, wide open green spaces, cool gazebo, and the large oak trees which provide plenty of shade. If that’s not enough, it’s all surrounded by awesome victorian style homes in a designated historic district.

This picturesque wedding ceremony site sits just west of downtown St. Paul, making it an ideal location for guests, and close to many excellent hotels and wedding reception venues.

Irvine Park Wedding Photos

My awesome couple here, Cait & Blake, got ready at the gorgeous Saint Paul Hotel which is just minutes away from Irvine Park. We then made a quick stop at Cossetta’s to take some fun wedding portraits, before finishing the evening off with their wedding reception at Degidio’s, a neighborhood favorite Italian restaurant, with a wonderfully redesigned banquet room.

Here are all the wedding day highlights:
