I don't usually open my junk mail let alone read it, however I was in a reading mood this weekend and while sorting through mostly junk I came across information from Gondola Romantica which offers "authentic" gondola rides in romantic settings. I did a little research and discovered their gondolas are imported from Italy and are as authentic as those used in Venice.
They offer a variety of options for cruises on the St. Croix River in Stillwater or Centennial Lakes in Edina. Short of traveling to Italy, I can't think of a more unique or romantic way to propose or celebrate special occasions. Check out Gondola Romantica for ideas and pricing. I would love to hear from anyone who has proposed in this fashion either locally or in Italy. Fete Perfection works with destination couples exploring exotic locations so why not become engaged in Minnesota and travel to Italy to marry?
