Ways to backyard wedding

How to set up your ceremony in our urban courtyard

Nothing like a backyard wedding with an urban backdrop. 

With few places to have a an outdoor ceremony in the downtown, having access to an urban courtyard allows unique ceremony option. Here are some of our favorite ways to ceremony @ Glass House with an outside twist. 

The Steps

Tie the knot on our steps and use our industrious garage door as your altar and have our Hennepin Made custom Foliole chandelier illuminate behind you. Option to either keep the garage door closed or open it up or get married on the top or bottom of the steps. 

This setup is best for guest counts 170 and less and will have your guests enjoy the warmth and view.

The Blank Canvas

A ceremony up against the gray brick wall paired with a custom floral arch, this set up allows for countless possibilities for personalization. This is layout is best suited for guest counts of 200 people or less.

The Quad

A summer stunner allows for a beautiful and longer grassy aisle. With the later ceremony you might be able to capture the perfect golden light kiss.

Best for larger parties looking to get outside with guests counts 250 and less.
