The awesome thing about Voyageurs National Park is that it is a “choose your own adventure” kind of location. What I mean by that is not only is it located in a state that has all four seasons (and thus four different kinds of experiences) but the entire park is split up into locations that are either accessible via car, otherwise there are other park locations that you must portage to or access via boat/ water taxi. The Park itself is about 5 hours away from the Twin Cities via I-35 and Highway 53. It’s also only 3 hours from Duluth if you are interested in making a pit stop either on the way to or from your wedding at Voyageurs ( **this is one of my favorite locations ever so I highly recommend doing so).
The Park has already put together this great chart for us that shows the various temperatures and precipitation rates at the park- so it really all depends on what is most important to you. Purely based on the greatest average temperature and also the least amount of precipitation, August and September would be great times to elope here! Keep in mind other factors such as bugs may be present during these months. In my personal experience, May was a great to go because there were very few visitors which gave us a lot of privacy in the park.
Again, where you stay is going to be dependent on if you are staying on the mainland or crossing over the water, but there are great options for both!
While this actually should be the FIRST thing you do, I wanted to get you all excited about the park first 🙂 But in all seriousness, when you’re planning your elopement, I highly recommend booking your vendors as soon as you can. This is not only so that you can have the peace of mind that you will have the people you want there on your day, but ALSO because these vendors (such as myself) are here to be a RESOURCE to you and help you have the best ever day. I may be “just be” a photographer and not a certified guide… but I have done my research and am excited about crafting an experience that is fun and unique to you. I will also be able to help with permits, give recommendations for stays and other vendors, and also communicate with the park alongside you… it’ll make your life a LOT easier- trust me!
So if you’re ready to elope here in the park, click the button below and let me know you want to start planning your Voyageurs National Park Elopement – I already can’t wait!
