So happy we chose JX!
We could not be happier with JX Event Venue! We planned our wedding for 320 people from Seattle, WA, and JX made everything so easy and stress-free! Emily, Cory, and Dayna went above and beyond to make sure that everything went seamlessly the day of, and we received so many compliments from our guests. The bartenders and photo booth were a big hit as well! The building is so beautiful that we barely needed any decorations. During the planning process, Emily was very helpful and knowledgeable with details we hadn't decided on yet, and answered questions/updated requests up until the day of our event. They recommended some of our other vendors, and not only were they all wonderful, but they all worked together like magic. We literally did not worry about a single thing. So happy we chose JX! :)Sent on 01/21/2019

Our dreams came true at the JX! From the minute I walked in I knew JX was where we should have our wedding. Aside from its beauty, the staff is so wonderful. It was a pleasure working alongside Annie, she was so accommodating and answered any/all of my questions extremely fast. We got married on Friday, September 28th and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. For any brides - consider renting out the bridal suite to get ready in, it made the experience so much fun for me and the girls and the space is plenty big to bring in your wedding makeup/hair vendors. Emily was also so great with our bar order. We had requested that champagne be waiting for us in the grooms room after the ceremony and it was, along with flutes so we could all toast to a lifetime of happiness. Thanks for everything, JX!Sent on 10/08/2018

I am part of the Meeting Planners International the Minnesota Chapter and I was in charge of the end of the year celebration. JX was the chosen venue and I am so glad to say everyone was so happy! What a beautiful venue but even more the staff was amazing and everyone got involved to make sure it went on without an issue. They went above and beyond and would recommend working with this group for any event! Unbelievably easy to work with and highest level of customer service and I am in the industry! Thank you Emily Tweed!Sent on 07/02/2018

As a wedding planner/coordinator, we LOVE working at the JX Venue! This is one of our favorite venues to work at. The venue is gorgeous and truly one of a kind. We are excited to be a preferred vendor with the JX Venue and One23 Events. We also recently helped Eliza at JX plan a styled shoot which turned out to be absolutely stunning! Eliza was great to work with as she was professional, friendly and stayed on top of the shoot and organized all of the vendors throughout the process. We can't wait to be back in September and December to work with the JX team again. Looking forward to working even more weddings and events there in the future! Highly recommend. xo, Melody (Events by Melody)
JX is the best venue. I don't know what else to say beyond that. It's the best actual venue, has the best staff, and is in the best location. If JX is available, your venue search should stop here. I'd book asap, because it's highly sought after. Highly, highly, highly recommended.
