Mississippi Gardens is by far one of the best wedding venues in the twin cities! The team there is absolutely incredible! From the initial planning stages all the way through our wedding day, they were instrumental in helping us plan the wedding of our dreams. Being an out of town bride and groom, we were initially concerned about planning a wedding from a distance, but working with the team at MG was such a wonderful experience. They were attentive, proactive, and overall just amazing group of people to work with.
The Venue itself is gorgeous! Nestled near the Mississippi river, it provides breath-taking views of the river and the beautiful landscape surrounding it. The hall itself is magnificent with large chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows, and classy design.
The set up, the attention to detail, the servers, the food, everything was phenomenal and beyond anything that we had ever imagined! We are still buzzing from the experience and our guests are still raving about the place. We couldn’t have asked for a better team of professionals to help make our dream wedding come true. Our wedding day felt like a fairy tale and the decision to have our wedding at MG was by far the best decision we’ve made throughout the entire planning process!

Best choice we made for our day!
Leopold's Mississippi Gardens was the best decision we could have made for our wedding! We were absolutely blown away by them from our original tour to the day of. Courtney was so helpful with giving us all the information we could have needed during our tour, and made us very excited as we immediately felt like we would be taken care of. Erin was so beyond helpful with the planning process and the many emails we exchanged. She is so organized and knows exactly what she is doing! The day of was so well run and we were just amazed how all the staff genuinely cared about our day like we were family and went over our already high expectations to make sure we were happy and everything was in place. We still get endless compliments from our guests how well the day flowed, how spoiled they felt, how beautiful the venue was, and how delicious the food was! Jordan and Jamie were so helpful and involved - not what you would always expect from owners. Jordan helped hang decor and drove our guests up and down to the ceremony area, while Jamie helped organize the whole day right down to queuing me when to walk down the aisle. To top it all off, at the end of the night the bar tender made sure to find us on our way out to give us the wine opener he had used throughout the night so we could have a little memento to bring home from the best day of our lives - amazing! LMG truly treats their guests like family and we are SO happy we chose them for our special day!

Of all the decisions my husband and I made while planning our Sept. 1, 2018 wedding, choosing Leopold's Mississippi Gardens was by far the best one! Every step of the process was flawless and every person we met was so friendly. I read a lot of reviews while looking into wedding venues, and one thing that came up time and again while looking into Mississippi Gardens is how every person on the team treats you "like family." This statement couldn't be more accurate! Not only is the venue absolutely stunning, but the owners and staff are top notch. Jamie, Jordan and Erin went above and beyond, especially when it came to my mother who has Multiple Sclerosis and is confined to a motorized wheelchair. Weeks before our wedding Jordan reached out to our family to ensure my mother's wheelchair would be able to get down to the riverside ceremony. Knowing how busy the Mississippi Gardens team during prime wedding season it's impressive and appreciated that they remembered and wanted to ensure their team had a plan in place, so my mother could get down to the ceremony smoothly and safely on our wedding day. These are those seemingly little things, that really are big things. It was amazing to see owners Jamie and Jordan Leopold actively involved on our wedding day, their commitment doesn't go unnoticed. And Erin made the planning process - from meal planning, day-of details, rehearsal and ceremony run-of-show - fun and easy. Erin has this wedding day thing down to an art. I had a lot of questions throughout the process, and Erin was quick to respond and never made me feel like a nuisance. We've received endless comments from multiple guests on how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was and how kind every staff member was - from the bartenders to the servers. Weddings are expensive in general, but I can so wholeheartedly that Mississippi Gardens is worth every penny. We're proud to be part of the Leopold's Mississippi Gardens Family!
