Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A hidden gem in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, this stately 1890s manor home boasts a facade of pink Sioux quartzite and a fascinating blend of Romanesque and French Renaissance architectural design.
  • There are beautiful spaces both indoors and out, including formal gardens, a grand courtyard, a two-story Carriage House, an amply-sized traditional ballroom, and wonderful bride and groom suites.
  • They offer an array of unique packages, including those for petite affairs and "progressive" weddings, which take your guests on a journey through several of the mansion's opulent spaces.
