    The Wabasha Street Caves was a wonderful venue for our wedding. We had our ceremony and reception here. Anne and was wonderful to work with. She is very professional and quick in responding to e-mails or phone calls. She scheduled time for me to come in about a month before the wedding to work out the fine details and figure out our set up for the ceremony, reception, and other vendors. Anne is very flexible in how you want things to look, but also gives her recommendations and advice when necessary. In addition, the other Wabasha Street Caves staff were great too! Family and friends commented on how friendly they were. Staff even commented on how beautiful everything looked. We are so happy that we chose the Wabasha Street Caves as our wedding venue. I would recommend it for other brides that want a unique venue as well!

    We had such a unique venue and Laura, who came on as our Caves contact after we had already booked it was very professional, friendly and helpful with the layout of the room. The bridal room is very small which accommodated our things during the dance but we did end up using the hotel room to get ready in. I wish we could have gone in the night before to decorate but as we didn't have many decorations, our friends had it all set up in less than 45 mins. The Caves had 5 food vendors to choose from and we were so happy with the one we chose (Kanes) although I did mention to Laura that one of the vendors completely snubbed us when we were inquiring about booking them (due to budget).

    Every Thursday night is Swing Night at the Caves with a live 16 piece Big Band that will take you back to the 1930's when gangsters used Saint Paul as a safe city. Band plays from 7-10 pm and there is a dance lesson at 6:15 pm. This is a great way to see the Caves in action!
