About Lumber Exchange Event Center

The Lumber Exchange Event Center is a historic wedding venue located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Constructed in 1885, the Lumber Exchange Building was the first skyscraper built in Minneapolis and at the time was one of the most grandiose and expensive buildings in the area. Designed with the old-world elegance and charm, the building boasts grand arch entries, romantic chandeliers, lofty ceilings and dazzling marble floors. Our original exposed brick combined with modern accents create an industrial feel sure to stun you and your guests. No matter the size or budget, we can turn your dream wedding into a reality.

There are several great photo locations in and around our building - from the revolving door originally from Grand Central Station to our beautiful marble entry way. Most couples stay onsite for all their photos!

    Amazing Wedding - Even during a pandemic

    We cannot express how thankful We are that we got married at the lumber exchange! My husband and I were planning our wedding before the pandemic happened and when it hit we didn’t know what our wedding day would look like. Sara was on top of all of it! She already created about three back up plans so We were ready for our wedding day! Because of Sara and the staff they made us feel super safe having a wedding during a pandemic, they followed all protocols with covid and we had a covid free wedding! The wedding day was better than I ever expected. The staff was on top of everything and We did not have to worry at all! So many guest came up to us and loved the look of the venue and how amazing the staff was!

    I would 100% recommend this place to anyone. Amazing food, service, everything!! I cannot thank Sara enough for all the hard work she put into helping us plan everything out!

    The most magical venue

    We got marred here the weekend before Christmas 2019, and we have been hearing one word to describe our wedding from our guests- MAGICAL! And this is 100% due to the LX team. Hannah was a dream to work with during the planning process, very detail oriented, kept me on track, always had fast responses and helped me when I needed a different perspective.

    Kelsey and Crystal were also spectacular as day of contacts. Kelsey helped us walk through our rehearsal to get over any day-before jitters. Crystal was like an old friend on the day of, keeping me sane, helping my bridal party with any questions we had and making sure we stayed on our timeline, while still getting to have fun and enjoy ourselves. I do want to also note that every single member of the service staff was friendly and answered all questions with a smile.

    Lastly, I feel like I have to address how absolutely BEAUTIFUL the space was. We needed very little decor and the space was so natural with the exposed brick, large windows and charming chandeliers.

    I cannot recommend this space enough, not only because of the visually appeal it provides but all of the people who helped make our day THE BEST EVER!

    Lumber Exchange Event Center's reply:

    Rylie & Eric,
    Thank you so much for your kind words! Your wedding was gorgeous and we especially loved the circular wreaths your bridesmaids held instead of traditional bouquets! A great idea for a Christmas themed wedding! We are thrilled you and your guests found your experience with us MAGICAL! We think our couples are pretty magical too!
    Cheers to a lifetime of happiness,
    LX Team

I just LOVE working with couples planning their Big Day! I feel so honored out of all of the great venues there are to choose from that they picked us. It is really important to me that my couples enjoy the planning process and that I take as much off of their plate as possible. This should be FUN! Let's make it that way. I enjoy working ahead and staying very organized so that your special day runs flawlessly.

When I am not working, I am at home with my family. My husband Nik of 10 years (yikes I'm old!) along with my daughter, Bradlee and my son, Nolan. My kids are old souls, so luckily they like to watch some great classics.

Nik and I enjoy watching a good scary movie once the kiddos are asleep and it pairs nicely with a good bourbon drink;) YUM!
