WOW! Medina did a wonderful job for our big day. We truly enjoyed every minute of our day because the staff was so wonderful, Missy (the event coordinator) went above and beyond our expectations, and the venue was able to accomodate our guest list of 200. Every detail leading up to our wedding was stress free because of the wonderful job Missy did in our planning meeting. We loved the food, it was all delicious! We had a buffet and all of our guests made it through the line within 20 minutes and all had HOT food! We also had a live band and this venue was phenomenal for a band! The set up was great. Medina offers tons of extras that made the day stress free! Thank you to all the staff at MEC for making our day so perfect!Sent on 11/10/2019

You won’t be disappointed with Medina!
We just had our wedding at Medina Entertainment Center Sunday Sept 1st and we couldn’t be more happy with how everything turned out! We received so many compliments on how beautiful the space/decorations were, which we did very little and we were in the Ballroom, how good the food was and how amazing their team was the entire evening. We particularly loved Chuck the security guard. He was on top of things, took extra care of our gift box and added a little humor to the evening which was awesome! We worked with Christine who was amazing from the beginning. She made everything seamless, was always good at answering my questions and understanding when we made changes. It was such a beautiful day/night and we owe a lot of that to everyone at Medina. We would highly recommend having your wedding or any event at Medina you won’t be disappointed!Sent on 09/08/2019

This has to be my favorite Venues in the Mpls/st. Paul area. They know how to work with there clients to create the perfect night. The food is amazing and their customer service is the best you can ask for. Medina Entertainment Center is a must look at venue for you next event.
