They made sure that everything would go as planned, whether that meant stopping into the venue or talking over the phone, they were there willing to help!

Gorgeous Venue, Phenomenal Service!
My husband and I got married at The Jerome on August, 29th 2020.
When we started the venue search a year prior, we were having trouble finding exactly what we wanted in the Minneapolis area. The moment I walked in to The Jerome, I knew it was something incredibly special. The rich history, unique original details and the modernized touches create the perfect balance for a beautiful wedding space. It is warm, inviting, spacious and breathtaking! There was no question The Jerome was the spot for us.
The owners, Lynn and Dale are the kindest and the most hard-working people you will ever meet. Planning a wedding from out-of-state could have been very challenging, but they made the entire process a breeze! They showed professionalism, kindness, thoughtfulness, and phenomenal assistance. Our original wedding date was May 23rd, but we ended up postponing due to COVID. They were extremely flexible, helpful and accommodating during and after choosing our new date.
Our wedding day was beautiful! I am still hearing from our guests how impressed they were with The Jerome. My husband and I still can’t get over how truly perfect it was for us. Thank you, Lynn and Dale, from the bottom of our hearts! You made our dreams a true reality and we will forever be grateful.Sent on 09/11/2020
