Fabulous venue. Perfect for the small to midsize weddings in an intimate location, with stunning photo locations! One of my favorite venues.
The Gale Mansion is a beautiful historic wedding venue just a few blocks outside of the uptown area of Minneapolis. As DJs, we simply love being able to play at the mansion and the staff always helps to make our lives easy!
The Gale Mansion is such a beautiful venue and so well organized! We have had the privilege of performing many ceremonies there and they always come off flawlessly thanks to the wonderful support of the staff at Gale Mansion! They offer several options for onsite ceremonies and the decor is so wonderfully elegant, charming and refined that it truly enhances the elegance, charm and grace of our ceremonies. We look forward to working with them closely for many years to come!
