Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Say "I do" as you roll along the Mississippi River. Your private charter departs from Bohemian Flats park and treats guests to a wonderful cruise through downtown Minneapolis.
  • Choose between the sleek Paradise Lady, a luxe yacht with pressed-tin ceilings and wraparound windows, or the Minneapolis Queen, a picture-perfect, traditional paddle-wheel riverboat.
  • You can also exchange vows in Bohemian Flats Gazebo, a large covered pavilion in the pretty waterfront park, before embarking on the ship of your choice for an unforgettable reception.
