    I would highly recommend booking your event at the Historic Minneapolis City Hall & Hennepin County Courthouse! Working through the booking at the office was a true pleasure, and they were a wealth of information beyond the location, into recommendations for preferred caterers, officiants, and fun locations for our special day. On the site the weekend staff was very helpful and courteous. We will definitely keep this location in mind for future events and recommendations to friends/family in the area.

    Everyone said how beautiful our venue was. I loved that it was unique, although it did make for a slightly stressful rehearsal as we tried to figure out how everything was going to work since your using a double staircase instead of a normal center aisle. Theresa who helps organize all the wedding stuff was great to work with. She answered questions quickly and was great at the last minute in helping us change our layout when our wedding was smaller than expected.

    Beautiful venue, reasonably priced (especially considering it is downtown MPLS), and Theresa is so easy going. Everything ran smoothly and I put little money into decorating because it is so unique. Loved it!
