About

Up to 200 guests

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’s 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’s 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.

    Beautiful Wedding Venue

    We had our wedding here in May 2021, and everything went great! Karen was a pleasure to work with! She was very responsive, and always answered all my questions! Even with special request for COVID precautions, she did a great job accommodating. I would definitely recommend Gale Mansion for your next wedding or other special event. Staff onsite the day of were all wonderful as well!

    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.

    Wonderful Day

    We had an amazing experience at the Gale mansion. Jessie and Robyn were both amazing, they made navigating planning a wedding relatively easy. The day of the wedding went so smoothly too because of their assistance and attention to detail. I can’t say enough positive things about the Gale and the staff there.
