About

The Gale Mansion, a historic mansion with a ballroom, is a timeless wedding venue for couples looking to have their wedding in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area. This vintage venue offers glamorous grounds and two indoor locations for couples to use on their wedding day. This venue is located in downtown Minneapolis, roughly 23 minutes from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can host up to 200 guests for a seated dinner at this wedding venue. When the weather is appropriate, couples can host an outdoor wedding ceremony at this historic mansion. There are landscaped lawns and paved front driveway areas where couples can begin their lives together. Behind the house, in the grassy area, chairs can be set up for a couple鈥檚 ceremony. They can have the affair facing the grand limestone exterior of the mansion, complete with columns and elegant windows. Inside, couples can use the main floor or the ballroom for their wedding reception. The main floor hosts 100 guests for a seated dinner and as many as 225 for a standing cocktail reception. In the ballroom, couples will find space for up to 200 guests for dinner with a dance floor. The interior of this venue features white walls with accents of a dark and polished wood. There are many windows and wall sconces for when the sun goes down at night.

Services Offered
Bridal showers and engagement parties can be hosted at the Gale Mansion in addition to ceremonies and receptions. In the months leading up to the wedding, event staff can assist couples with event planning, while pastry chefs plan the customized cake of a couple鈥檚 dreams. The professional staff can even help to recommend and coordinate with outside vendors who know the venue well or whom couples find on their own. When the wedding arrives, couples can relax in the bridal suite with members of their wedding party while staff members take care of setup, clean up, in-house bar services, and in-house catering. Guests arriving at this venue will appreciate the convenience of onsite parking, valet parking, and wireless Internet.

Cuisine
Full in-house bar service provides all the drink options need for a couple鈥檚 open or cash bar. A fully stocked bar means that couples don鈥檛 have to worry about supplying any outside alcohol themselves.

The dishes can be served in the following catering styles:

An absolutely beautiful venue!!

An absolutely beautiful venue!! Highly recommended for your wedding day!!

My (now) husband and I first visited the Gale Mansion a couple weeks after our engagement, towards the end of October 2021. At that time, we first met with the coordinator, and then were given a tour of the beautiful and elegant mansion. Immediately, we were impressed with how classy and sophisticated the mansion looked. When we left, we both felt this could be the right place for our reception. Not that long after touring, my (now) husband and I made it official and booked the Gale Mansion as our venue for our reception!

Over the past 10 months, leading up to our wedding day, we had meetings with the coordinator to go over our timeline and check things off our to-do list. Our questions were always answered in a timely manner and the coordinator was exceptional to work with, as she made things easy and stress free for our special day!

Our wedding took place in mid-August 2022 and using the Gale Mansion for our place to get ready, as well as our cocktail hour and reception was truly PERFECT! All the bridesmaids and groomsmen enjoyed getting ready in the bridal suite and the groom鈥檚 room. Also, we were able to bring in hair and makeup artists so all the ladies could be in the same room to get ready together, which allowed for lots of time for us all to talk and catch up! After our church ceremony, guests arrived at the Gale Mansion for a lovely cocktail hour on the main level. Guests truly enjoyed walking around the different rooms. After cutting the cake on the main level by the beautiful fireplace, everyone moved downstairs to the gorgeous ballroom area for the dinner and dance. Lastly, the Gale Mansion was terrific in helping to tear down all of our d茅cor, as well as saving our gifts and other personal items for us to pick up the following day after our wedding.

Overall, my husband and I had an amazing wedding day thanks to the coordinator, and all of the staff at the Gale Mansion. Truly a WONDERFUL experience and would definitely recommend!

Loved Gale Mansion for our wedding!

I had my wedding at Gale Mansion and I am SO happy we went with it. The inside is beautiful, the outside gorgeous. The director of catering, office manager and staff were such a pleasure to work with and on top of their game. The food was INCREDIBLE as well. All our guests were fed with top notch meals. Thank you Chef!

All in all, there's nothing about the mansion I would have changed. Thank you for housing the most beautiful day I have ever seen.
