Can't Say Enough Great Things!
We knew Kellerman's was going to be our wedding venue the moment we saw the brick wall. It was the style and feel that we were looking for our wedding. From the moment we booked to our last few minutes of our wedding day everything with Kellerman's was exactly what we wanted! First when you book, they gave you a complimentary cocktail at the craft cocktail lounge attached to the venue, and every year on your anniversary you get a complimentary drink because as they described it - you're part of the Kellerman's family now! We worked with Amy about the details leading up to our day. She was SO helpful, there were moments I couldn't keep it all straight and she was so great about reminding what we still needed to do or give to her. The day of the wedding was amazing! We walked in off our party bus, the owner Terry was there immediately asking if I needed water or even helping us with our coolers. During dinner Amy came to us asking what we needed or wanted. We were stunned! It was so awesome to just concentrate on our bridal party and having fun with them at our head table. Amy came over a few times asking if we needed anything, at one point my MOH didn't know where her speech was and Amy quickly jumped in to help her find it! Amy worked so hard on our wedding day and we are forever grateful for the wonderful experience Kellerman's provided for us. Our guests agree as well, we've had multiple people tell us our wedding venue was the coolest wedding venue they've ever seen! Thank you Kellerman's and Amy!!Sent on 03/13/2020

Kellermans is beautiful, and the event coordinator is fantastic! Would recommend 100%
Kellermans is the perfect place to get married! It’s beautiful! We didn’t need many decorations as it’s beauty stands on its own! Kristen, our wedding coordinator was detailed and knowledgeable. She worked with us every strep of the way and went above and beyond to ease our minds and help us with anything we needed. She was prompt with questions I had and communicated well. She was very knowledgeable of the vendors in the area and helped communicate with them. During the wedding she ensured to communicate with vendors about timing (we had Donitellis for dinner- delicious, and studio 220 photography- super awesome!) Schedules moved around quite a bit due to couples rescheduling their wedding but she was flexible and kept communicating with us! She allowed us to have drinks in the parlor after the rehearsal when the bar wasn’t open yet. The business really goes above and beyond for its patrons!
The day of the wedding was extremely smooth and easy. She kept us on time without rushing. At one point she realized I didn’t have my drink during toasts and got me one. She really looks at the details. She assisted with set up and take down and had wonderful ideas! This was a small Covid wedding and had a great balance of ensuring everyone was safe and having a great time!
The bar service was great! Check out the Alchemist bar... beautiful and great for wedding photos! Also, the most delicious mixed cocktails! A wonderful balcony! Gorgeous brides room and unique grooms room. Brides room has lots of space with plenty of places to do hair/makeup and great lighting! A beautiful full length mirror for pictures. Take a look at the beautiful pictures I. Their website and you will fall in love! The grooms room had awesome decor...a motorcycle, pool table, bearskin chairs. So cool! The owner made many of the decorations, doors, etc himself and gave us the grand tour when we first saw the space! Check our the brewery attached—great beer!
We cannot say enough great things about Kellermans! We really got royal service and so glad that we were able to get married there!Sent on 11/04/2020

Outstanding venue and wedding coordinator and owner!
Our daughter and son in law were married at Kellermans on 10/24/20. They first scheduled their wedding at a Mexico destination venue in April 2020. When CoVid hit we knew it needed rescheduling which we did for 11/5/2020. July came and it did not look promising for the destination wedding in November. We checked out Kellermans as a potential back up for a venue in MN. The bride and groom along with us fell in love with the venue and Kristen Cranmer, the wedding coordinator. She went above and beyond in so many ways to make the 10/24/20 wedding date happen for them. It was beautiful and even more so than we imagined. Everything went perfectly and even though it snowed that week (it is 2020 after all!) our small group of guests all made it and we celebrated heartily. Some of the best things about Kellermans:
2. Gorgeous brides room
3. Unique grooms room
4. Eclectic decor and event center room converts very nicely from ceremony to reception
5. Fun parlor for small group event and license signing
6. Back bar area separate from reception area
7. Iron arbor you can decorate to your desire
8. Amazing entrance staircase for bridal party
9. AV set up for you to have a DJ or you can use your iPhone etc to stream your music
10. Outdoor patio and garden alley
It’s the perfect venue and we love the Alchemist bar attached! Thank you to Kristen and owner Terry and all the staff that helped make it THE BEST DAY!
