    Loved working with MEC for our big day! They were super helpful and responsive and did most of the leg work for us (catering, set up, etc)! They also had some great recommendations for other vendors they have worked with and everything worked out perfectly! They made our day a dream come true!

    We loved the look of Minneapolis Event Center from the start but knew it was the venue for us when we realized they did EVERYTHING. From the initial planning meeting to the end of the wedding reception, they took care of every single detail...making us a custom monogram, ordering pizza at the end of the night, gathering all of our decor and placing it by the door for someone to pick up at the end of the night, helping load gifts into a car. They were fantastic. The servers, bartenders, and security personnel were incredibly competent and kind. The food was amazing. And the space itself is beautiful -- rustic elegant. It was the perfect venue for the perfect night.

    Kerry and everyone at Minneapolis Event Center made my wedding an absolute success. They are all so kind, friendly, professional and great at their jobs. My husband and I could not have been happier. You also can not go wrong with their preferred vendors.
