    Five stars across the board for the Minnesota History Center - I would give them 6 stars if I could! This is a really special venue that provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding day. Working with Brittany and her team was a pleasure! They made everything so easy for us from beginning to end. She really took a lot of weight off of our shoulders during both the planning process and the day of the wedding.

    If you're looking to capture some phenomenal photos of your wedding day, you can't get much better than the History Center. It is right in the middle of downtown, so you get amazing skyline views of the city, the capitol building, and the cathedral. Our guests had the option to stay inside or venture outside for photos and cocktails - everyone raved about what a gorgeous venue it was! The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that the capitol building (the focal point of the dancefloor/ceremony room) was under construction at the time and full of scaffolding. As the capitol seems to be under construction every other year, I would consider double-checking before you book if that is important to you.

    Bon Appetit catering was dynamite! Every guest I talked to raved about the food. When my husband and I sat down for our food tasting, we had a hard time deciding which dishes to pick - they were all THAT good. The food service the day-of was also top notch. It's rare to host a plated dinner and have everyone get their food and eat at the same time, but the staff were amazing and everyone was eating and enjoying dinner simultaneously.

    Another bonus (especially if you have lots of kids attending) is that the exhibits are open, free of charge, to your guests the day of the wedding. This is a great way to keep guests from out of town occupied without making them drive too far.

    If you're looking for a unique, beautiful venue and delicious food, choose the History Center! I cannot say how happy we are that we chose them!!

    Every single person who we spoke with at the wedding said it was, by far, the best party they had ever been to. Michelle and Christi were wonderful to work with. They provided us with a list of "preferred vendors", or people who know and can work with the space. I used all preferred vendors and the night went off without a hitch. I would absolutely recommend the Minnesota History Center for the wedding of your dreams.

    The place was beautiful for ceremony and reception; Christie was awesome at coordinating all the details; the food was fantastic and they went out of their way to accommodate dietary requests; and they packed everything up for us at the end of the night, so cleanup was a breeze! Thank you!

    I've photographed numerous weddings at the Minnesota History Center. Every time - their staff/catering service has been amazing. Professional, kind (they take care of photographers, too!), and every wedding I've photographed there has gone amazingly well. Not to mention - it's a gorgeous venue in an absolutely stunning setting.
