    The jerome is the best!

    I could not recommend The Jerome Center more!! Lynn and Dale were SO EASY to work with. There were no hidden fees and everything was communicated up front and clearly. I could tell right away that they wanted what was best for us and our day. They emailed me often with updates and helpful tips. They gave us many local recommendations. The Jerome Center is a newer venue and definitely a special place. As they renovated the space they kept so many beautiful historic pieces as well as making it new- it is the perfect combination! The layout of The Jerome Center is the best! It is one large space divided with doorways separating the dance floor and tables. My husband and I had never visited Delano, but after touring The Jerome we soon found that it is such a special and beautiful city. If you’re looking for a budget friendly venue west of the twin cities- check out The Jerome Center!

    The Jerome Event Center's reply:

    We are very fortunate to have wonderful couples like you celebrate with us! We love our little town and are touched that you feel the same way. Thank you and wishing you all the best in 2022!

    Highly Recommend This Venue!

    My Husband and I only have great things to say about The Jerome! We had our wedding ceremony and reception there and loved every second of it. We fell in love with the history, interior details, and overall feeling that The Jerome creates. It was a pleasure working with The Jerome team and we would highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married! The team is very kind and you can feel their passion for this business. They will not disappoint!!

    The Jerome Event Center's reply:

    Thank you so much, Tess! Our commitment to creating memorable experiences began with restoring the simple beauty of the 1905 building, and we're delighted that our passion and attention to detail was noticed and appreciated by you, Jake, and your guests. Your wedding day was full of so many sweet and beautiful moments, and we're honored that The Jerome and Delano's riverfront were the backdrop. Thanks for choosing The Jerome to begin your journey as Mr. and Mrs.

    Congratulations!
