Landmark Center is a wedding venue located in Saint Paul Minnesota. Completed in 1902 at a cost of $2.5 million, the building was originally a post office and federal courthouse. Members of the infamous Barker-Karpis gang were tried here. Saved from demolition in 1972, the building was painstakingly restored to its former glory. In 1978, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the venue is a thriving cultural center. A great many wonderful exhibitions, special events, and performing arts shows are hosted here each year.
Facilities and Capacity
Landmark Center is designed in the stunning Richardsonian Romanesque style. A variant of Romanesque Revival architecture, the Richardsonian Romanesque style takes its inspiration from the 11th and 12th-century Romanesque traditions of France, Spain, and Italy. The exterior of the venue is crowned by a picturesque collection of towers and turrets. Inside, the building is bedecked with stunning garnishments of marble and mahogany. A number of rooms are available for ceremonies and receptions. These can be rented individually or together. The Musser Cortile is the venue’s largest event space. It can accommodate as many as 750 people. The Chief Justice Room is an ideal setting for more intimate occasions. Parties of 48 dinner guests can dine in splendor here.
Landmark Center maintains a list of preferred caterers. Couples are not, however, required to select a vendor from this list. The venue is pleased to allow DJs and photographers on the premises. Outside vendors are kindly asked to keep in mind that the building is a public space and a place of historical significance.

My Husband and I chose the Landmark Center because of their wow factor the second you walk in. The 5 store views from the atrium are truly spectacular and adds in a touch of unparalleled class to your wedding day. We worked with Betsy and Hilary the onsite coordinators and they were truly amazing and unbelievably professional. -MarisaSent on 10/08/2019

The Landmark Center really was my dream venue - I can't imagine our wedding having been anywhere else! The building is stunning - as the little girls at my wedding kept telling me, "just like a castle!" - and needs little decorating to look absolutely incredible. Betsy was lovely to work with when creating a timeline and table plan, and Pam was great to work with for the liquor coordination. The bridal suite is stunning and works perfectly for getting ready (although the groom no longer gets a nice room to get ready in, which was disappointing to my husband). There are also just so many pretty places to take pictures - your photographers will have a field day!Sent on 09/15/2016

Landmark Center has been quick to reply when we've had questions or concerns. The venue itself it simply beautiful and steepd in history which my fiance and I both love. We are planning a small wedding so the Chief Justice room will be a perfect spot for us and our family/friends. The Landmark center has a variety of caterers to choose from who all have great reviews on thai and other sites. The Center is the exclusive vendor for alcohol sales but they have been very flexible about beverage minimums considering our group is under 50 people. The gorgeous building coupled with lovely Rice Park across the street is a perfect place for a wedding/reception.Sent on 10/02/2015

WOW!!!!!!! What can I say?? The Landmark Center is a GORGEOUS wedding reception space. The Architecture and Ambiance are unsurpassed in the Twin Cities. Unfortunately many of the "Grand Dames" of public ballrooms, hotels etc have met with the wrecking ball years ago. We are SO fortunate to have this beautiful piece of History in our midst. The fabulous food and catering staff of The Saint Paul Hotel puts the "icing on the cake" NOTE: This venue books out 1-2years in advance...MOVE FAST if you want to secure it!
