The Blaisdell Mansion Minneapolis Wedding Venue


At The Blaisdell, we focus on making each event a unique and custom-tailored experience for all our clients. We are only as good as our guests' experiences. 

Have you had a great experience with The Blaisdell?

Kaira and Janet are absolutely AMAZING! Our wedding was just a small one (~80 guests), but it was completely worth it to have it at The Blaisdell. They are so accommodating, and will also let you know if there are any questions regarding vendors and timelines (our issue ended up not being an issue, but we REALLY appreciated the open communication!). I recommend The Blaisdell to anybody looking for a sophisticated mansion-style look for a venue! Staff are easy to work with and will provide feedback for your vision regarding ceremony (if held here - like ours!) and reception!

You HAVE to book your wedding here. Kaira and Janet are a dream to work with! The partnerships they have made with local vendors make planning a breeze. I never thought our perfect day would be as perfect as it was!! If you are looking for a place to host your ceremony and your reception, this is the place to book. You CANNOT go wrong!!!!

Absolutely breathtaking venue. Janet and Kaira are so incredibly accommodating and have such big hearts. They truly care about The Blaisdell and all the brides that are fortunate enough to be married in such a beautiful environment!

The Blaisdell was more than we could have imagined for our wedding. Recently renovated and constantly improving their features, the space was beyond gorgeous! The new LED lights in the ballroom made our ceremony and reception feel glamorous and distinct from one another. When we first toured the space, they made it so easy to reserve our space and provided a fantastic list of recommended vendors - many of whom we ended up hiring. Janet was fantastic in helping us get the venue booked and contracts complete. Kaira was amazing from that day forward. She accommodated our silly “can we come check such and such out” requests, took the time to get to know our parents and the wedding party, made sure every detail of our wedding was prepared, and was an absolute joy throughout all of it. The hugs were genuine as we said our thank you at the end of the night and wish we could get married again simply to use the space all over again. Even before we said “I do” we were recommending the venue and Kaira to others. Without a doubt...DO IT! -

Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially when you’re the bride and living in a different country. But Kaira at the Blaisdell made the experience enjoyable. She worked closely with my parents, organized visits for my aprents at the venue, coordinated FaceTime calls with me, answered all our questions quickly, and helped get the venue decorated for the big day. Overall just the best day and it wouldn’t have been as smooth and lovely without the team at the Blaisdell.

The Blaisdell is a modern mansion that offers elegance in a romantic setting. The space is gorgeous and functional at the same time with the ballroom, parlor, the suite and more! The staff are wonderful to work with and ensure that everything is handled professionally. The preferred catering list showcases vendors that offer quality food and service. Everything is to LOVE at The Blaisdell!

The Blaisdell has a lot going for them. A great staff that is responsive and willing to help and offer suggestions as you go through the wedding planning process, which was key for me. Everything we wanted/needed for a venue was included at The Blaisdell. We had a blank canvas for decorating and creating a dream space for our reception, which could not have gone better. The recommended vendor list was perfect, but they were also open to allowing us bring in a few of our own. If you need a venue in Minneapolis, this is definitely a place to look at!

The Blaisdell is about to be the next best wedding venue in Minneapolis! With a perfect setting for small intimate wedding ceremonies and a well lit reception room, be daring and take your cocktail hour upstairs. Space for both brides and grooms to get ready, without fear of bumping into each other before the first look happens. Plus, Glam Doll Donuts is right down the street. LOVE this space! Wonderful staff and incredibly helpful!

The Blaisdell is an amazing venue and we couldn’t have been happier with how beautiful our wedding reception was! I was thrilled with the execution of the evening! The staff was amazing! I couldn’t thank the whole Blaisdell crew enough for making our night so wonderful.

Absolute Perfection! This Venue is incredibly beautiful, has the most amazing bridal suite, and the groom’s room has a pool table! The whole venue is luxurious and the event space is a blank canvas to bring any wedding vision to life! Also, Jackie is the best!

The Blaisdell mansion is absolutely breathtaking... The exterior of the building has a luxury elegant look and the inside is modern with a beautiful romantic staircase, crystal chandeliers and elegant furniture. The state of the art modern ballroom could beautifully accommodate any event. I highly recommend The Blaisdell mansion for luxury couples that are looking to experience excellence in customer service and have an unforgettable time at this beautiful venue for their wedding. Nazar, Janet, Kaira and staff are a pleasure to work with, and they will make sure that your event will be carried out with the highest quality for you and your guests to enjoy.

I’m in love with the renovations at The Blaisdell! The interior is elegant but modern. The ballroom has gorgeous high ceilings with dark wood floors and is stunning. In addition to the space the staff is outstanding. It’s truly a hidden gem in the Twin Cities but it won’t be hidden for long!
— Sarah C.

I toured The Blaisdell and thought it was absolutely gorgeous! The rooms are bright and the space is incredibly elegant. It is a perfect place for a wedding reception, or special event. The location is very convenient to downtown Minneapolis. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this venue.
