Ceremony/Reception Venue
Where// Minneapolis City Hall

350 South Fifth Street
Minneapolis, MN 55415

4:30 PM- Reception immediately after
Cocktails and appetizers will be served in between

More parking information will be provided-however there is a ramp that connected underground to the venue so there would be no need to walk outside. Cost of parking will be $4

When looking for a wedding venue there were several things that I wanted to keep in mind.

1. Our wedding was going to be in the winter... in MINNESOTA aka snow, snow, snow so I knew that I didn't want to make our guest drive to both the ceremony and the reception venue.

2. I love old things, therefore I knew I wanted our wedding venue to have a antique feel to it. I originally desired to have our ceremony at an old church with huge stained glass windows but after thinking and realizing our guest may have to drive around in a possible blizzard, I vetoed out that idea. However I still wanted to encompass the stain glass windows or at least something old.

3. Chad and I love Minneapolis.
I lived there for three years
Chad and I went to school down here
Most of our dates are in Minneapolis

It only makes sense for us to host one of the biggest days of our lives in a city that we have spent so much time in.

4. We are on a budget. We both have student loans, with more coming as as a result of my graduate degree. We were not going to be able to do some of my top choices (such as the Semple Mansion

All of this leads up to our determined venue of the Minneapolis City Hall. 

No it is not the typical county city hall where you can walk up to the judge and be married. It is a beautiful building with stained glass windows and marble walls. The building was established in the late 1800's and has SO much character. It is in the middle of the city, has underground parking for guest, and an awesome interior. 

There is a small negative to the building...
there is a HUGE statue in the middle of the room. But I love everything else about this building so we decided to go for it!

Here is the exterior of the building. Old, classic, and in the middle of Minneapolis. I am excited to take some outdoor photos here with the snow :)

I am  so excited having my wedding at the Minneapolis City Hall. 

If you are attending the wedding you can find out more information regarding parking and location here at the Minneapolis City Hall website. 


  1. We got married, in the winter, in the snow -- it was actually the coldest day of 2010. For all the worrying my mom did over our guests travel arrangements, it worked out :)

    I actually got my bridesmaids dress coats from Old Navy to wear over their dresses. I found them on super deal (less than $30 a coat) around Thanksgiving. It made for some great photos and was a gift they could use over and over again!

    Your venue is gorgeous. I'm a new follower and I can't wait to hear about the rest of the wedding plans :)

    1. AH! Yay I love hearing other people's winter wedding stories. I am so excited for this and there are so many fun ideas! That is a great idea about going to Old Navy and getting the coats... I am going to look into it!

  2. So exciting! Enjoy the planning, it's so much fun!
