About Us

Located in Stillwater, Minnesota, Trellis Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies offers beautiful covered outdoor ceremony venues and sweet treat receptions. Trellis Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies is conveniently located two miles from downtown Stillwater and the St. Croix River and just minutes away from Minneapolis and St. Paul. Its owners are a daughter and mother team who wanted to provide outdoor ceremony options without the worries of being rained out. With this in mind, the owners offer two options—canopy and gazebo. The gazebo is an open-air option, whereas the canopy is a covered-outdoor option. The venue can accommodate up to 250 guests. For those seeking a serene and classic backdrop for ceremonies, this is an excellent option.

Canopy. The canopy is a permanent structure in the middle of a beautifully manicured lawn, surrounded by trees, shrubbery and flowers. It is draped with satin swags and comes with elegant chandeliers. The sides can be closed for rainy days. It can accommodate up to 250 guests. It offers a simple and quiet elegance.

Gazebo. Surrounded by gardens and trees, the gazebo is a classic ceremony option. The gazebo is white and even has a hanging chandelier for added sophistication.


What You Should Know

The venue is designed for ceremonies and offers a sweet treat reception, which is a lighter version of the traditional dinner. The sweet treat reception includes drinks such as Perrier water and sparkling juices. Sweet treats are provided alongside the drinks. These receptions typically go from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The venue can recommend nearby spots for dinner receptions. The flat venue fee includes everything that is necessary for a ceremony, such as:

  • Bridal cottage
  • 200 chairs
  • Setup and cleanup
  • Decor
  • Sound system
  • Five microphones

Music can be played through hidden speakers or live bands can perform at the Musician's Courtyard, which is adjacent to the Canopy. There are several electrical outlets at the outdoor venues to help facilitate lights and music. Decor includes an iron unity candle stand and antique side tables. If the ceremony will have more than 200 guests, couples will need to hire an outside vendor for the remaining 50 chairs.

Trellis Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies also offers an extensive officiant service, which begins with a free consultation and includes unlimited phone and email support. All officiants are independent Christian ministers and can accommodate traditional, nontraditional, Christian and non denominational ceremonies.


Extra Perks

  • Free on-site parking available
  • 40 white umbrellas available in case of rain

We were married at the Trellis on September 15th, 2012. The Trellis is a stunningly beautiful place to get married. The flowers were still perfect even in September!! The tent for the ceremony is gorgeous and roomy for up to 250 guests, the garden grounds are well kept, and...

The best part about having your ceremony at the Trellis is working with Sheri, she truly is the nicest person I have ever met, and made our stress level almost completely disappear on our big day!!! The Trellis is gorgeous and well worth the money if your looking for a beautiful place to have an outdoor wedding!

Best day of my life!

We had a great time there. We had so many people that just love the scenery. The people there were great to work with and easy. They were also flexible on our date. We pick a date and then had to change it about 9 months left and they had no hesitation. I felt the price was... Read More just right. We are a blended family with 4 kids and there was so much room for the kids to run around and the cottage was a great place for them to cool down. Thanks again for helping make our day perfect!

We just got married at the end of August and I would 100% recommend Trellis as a wedding venue! The gardens are meticulously well kept, they recently did some cosmetic upgrades to the large tent which made a world of a difference for pictures and I didn't stop getting... Read More compliments throughout the whole evening on how beautiful Trellis was from our wedding guests. The most meaningful and memorable piece to trellis are the owners and day of attendants. These people are completely zoned in on every detail that makes your day special and are so well prepared for any mishaps that may come up. As soon as we finished our wedding rehearsal, so much anxiety about day-of details went away, as I knew that the guests and wedding party would be taken care of and in good hands. I just cannot speak more highly about this venue, the people who run it and the experience that we had. Thank you Trellis!!!

The set-up at Trellis is absolutely stunning! The gardens make a beautiful background for photos. You rent for a three hour time period, and then can pay extra for additional time.

We had our sunset ceremony on a Saturday night at the end of May and everything was perfect. Leading up to the event, Sally was especially helpful and everyone at Trellis was really responsive.

The place was beautiful and the candles throughout the woods were the perfect touch. There was a thunderstorm during our ceremony, and the thunder and rain on the tent set the mood amazingly. Trellis also has these gorgeous white umbrellas, and when I first saw them when we toured the place, I said, "wow, I really wouldn't mind if it rained because we'd get to use these!" And it did, it was perfect.

Two weeks after my wedding and people are still talking about the beautiful location of our ceremony - Trellis in Stillwater. The gardens were in full bloom, the sun was shining, and absolutely no insects were buzzing around the wedding party or the guests on my perfect wedding... Read More day. This venue is absolutely amazing and I would freely receommend it to anyone. The only (minor) drawbacks are lack of space for the wedding party to get ready. I had six bridesmaids in my wedding and the indoor cottage space was a bit cramped for us, particularly on a hot day when guests tried to come in to escape the heat. Other than that small flaw, I think Trellis was an absolutely perfect place to get married!

Beautiful Place

We had our ceremony here for one of the afternoon times. Leading up to the wedding they were pretty easy to get a hold of and responsive via email-no complaints there. They were also pretty easy to work with and Brenda, who did our rehearsal, definitely knows what she is doing... Read More and is efficient. My only issue was that on wedding day it was raining and my guys were sitting outside the gate to get in at our appointed time. They are not really flexible on this (even 5 minutes) and I had to call to tell them it was 1pm and I wanted in (one of my few bridezilla moments). My other issue is that when we met and originally booked the venue they told us there were heaters available in case it was cold because we had a Sept. 28 wedding. On wedding day-despite the forecasts predicting rain and cold weather, they did not have the heaters at all. That meant me and my girls were standing up there and quite cold. All that being said, Trellis is truly a beautiful and unique place to get married-we had so many compliments on how beautiful it was even though it was rainy and cloudy-I can't imagine how beautiful a nice sunny wedding would be :) We also did the dove release which is pretty unique and made for some great pictures. I loved Trellis and thought it was perfect for our ceremony and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Beautiful Location but Rushed Preperation.

Trellis was a beautiful location. If you're looking to have an outdoor wedding away from the crowds Trellis is your place. Their garden is beautiful and elegant and big enough to accommodate larger weddings (up to 250). They even have a backup rain plan at no extra charge. The... Read More owners of Trellis genuinely enjoy what they do, however they are becoming more popular and in the process their rates have shot up and they have less time to take care of you. We felt a little rushed during the rehearsal and they left a few things up in the air until the actual ceremony, but other than that I would have my wedding day there all over again.
