    Cannot recommend FIVE enough!

    We held our wedding reception at FIVE on 10/12/19. We booked the venue in August of 2018 after seeing a number of venues in the Twin Cities. Nothing compared to the modern/upscale industrial feel that FIVE has. Their price is unbeatable and they are so easy to work with. They have a lot of fantastic vendor partners and are willing to help you with any crazy or unique ideas that you may have (please see more details below). We originally did our planning with Shauna but after she moved we began working with Renee who was absolutely fantastic. She made us feel so calm and secure that our day would go just as we had hoped for. Cannot recommend FIVE enough!

    We had 175 guests, 20 guest tables, a pizza buffet, a photo booth, a dessert table and a popcorn bar table. FIVE did a fantastic job helping us coordinate all of our special requests (we had a mobile wood fire pizza oven for dinner and individualized MN craft beer flights).

    My husband and I had both our ceremony and reception held at FIVE Event Center, and we could not have asked for a better venue!

    FIVE is such a unique and beautiful space. The classic brick held over from the building's days as a police precinct provided a wonderful backdrop for our ceremony and pictures, and the architectural updates helped create a hip, modern atmosphere our guests absolutely loved. We wanted a venue that could host both our ceremony and reception, and FIVE handled it with ease. The upstairs accommodated our 140 guests for the ceremony, dinner, and dance, while the downstairs had enough space for guests to socialize as the staff quickly flipped the upstairs from ceremony to dinner. The on-site bridal suite was large enough for my bridesmaids to get ready, and had space for a makeup artist to be brought in.

    The area surrounding FIVE is amazing, also. Our guests loved exploring the neighborhood nearby, and our photographer found wonderful places for pictures right outside the venue.

    The staff at FIVE were absolutely amazing, especially our event coordinator Shauna. My husband and I never felt like a burden to the staff, and everyone was super helpful and friendly. Shauna responded to my many (and random!) questions in a timely fashion throughout our wedding planning process. Shauna and others were true professionals!

    My husband and I went with FIVE's preferred vendors for catering, DJ, and bar, and did not regret any of our choices! Green Mill Catering was absolutely delicious, everyone loved our Buttercream Bakery cake, bar services were fantastic, and Instant Request did a fabulous job entertaining our guests.

    You will not go wrong choosing FIVE Event Center for your wedding!
