Whether your wedding is large or small, formal or casual, St. Olaf College offers lovely venues and services to help make it memorable.
During the summer you may choose a traditional setting in Boe Memorial Chapel, with its magnificent stained glass windows and organ or other wedding venues including the elegantly appointed Urness Recital Hall and Studio A. Our picturesque hilltop setting with gardens, courtyard and memorial chime tower is ideal for outdoor weddings and receptions. During a few select academic breaks, Boe Memorial Chapel may also be available for weddings.
At St. Olaf you are free to select your own celebrants, musicians and florist.
Receptions, Dinners, Showers, and Brunches
