  • Katherine was simply phenomenal to work with during our whole wedding planning process, but went the extra mile to make sure my husband and I, our guests, our vendors, and their staff were comfortable and safe during our pandemic wedding in July. She arranged our COVID seating well ahead of time AND texted photos of what it would look like. She's so friendly and responsive, and I'm so glad we were able to still have a beautiful, safe wedding at Semple.

  • My husband and I are so lucky to have been able to be married at the Semple Mansion. Katherine and her staff are top notch and excellent at what they do. Our wedding day was perfect and we got comments from all of our guests about the venue and how amazing it is! My only frustration was that they are allowed (states in the contract you sign) to show off the venue to prospective customers during your wedding day up until noon. So that was a little annoying when we were trying to get everything set up. Other than that- we had a wonderful time. Perfect venue.

  • SEMPLE MANSION: I got married in early November and the mansion was cozy and charming while also being so elegant. I planned my wedding from a different state and Katherine (the ) was amazing at responding to my million questions and worries. Semple’s staff is hands on and makes the day run so smoothly. I went with the in-house decor vendor (Positively Charmed), which was so beautiful. I can’t recommend enough!

  • Getting married at the mansion wasn't the plan until we walked in. Then we couldn't picture our day anywhere else. Katherine and Breanna were great. The mansion is absolutely stunning. Every angel every room every season. If you want an entire place with lots of rooms all for you, this is it. It's old, its stylish, its GORGEOUS. It has a personality all it's own. The vibe was so on point for our theme. Nowhere could have been it but there. It has a library for quite conversation and cake, a big bar for socializing and drinking, a beautiful and ornate ballroom for dancing or eating or both! The staircase will take your breath away its perfection for pictures and for that big moment when your guests first see you. There's a billiards room so the boys have something to do and don't get into too much trouble. And a bridal suite that is so bridal! This place is pricey but that's because it's perfect.

  • Having our wedding at Semple Mansion was the BEST decision we could have made. The mansion itself is stunning and perfectly matched our Gatsby-inspired wedding vision. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was and how perfectly intimate our 183+ wedding felt (which can be a hard thing to pull off in many other venues). Plus, the price is definitely reasonable and they offer 10 different catering options, in addition to allowing mansion access (throughout the entire mansion) all day long. One major reason we chose Semple over other mansions is because they didn't nickel and dime us for "extra hours" before 3pm - instead, their rate was up front and 100% fair, which we really appreciated. Beyond that, the staff (especially Katherine!) was phenomenal. They were incredibly helpful with any questions we had, and throughout the entire night, Katherine was there to lend a hand. Plus, the transitions between floors for different parts of the evening was flawless. Our wedding... Read more

  • Our family had a wonderful experience @ the Semple Mansion. The staff was incredible with hospitality. They were very kind, attentive, congenial, professional, and worked very hard to fulfill your wishes. Kathryn and Sophia worked as a team and represented each other with dignity and grace. The entire day from morning til midnight was magical. We loved the mansion and its beauty and splendor. The bridal suite was especially enchanting and sweet for the bridal party to prepare for the ceremony. The guests were completely inspired by the immediate beauty of the venue. We also loved the ease of the reception being in the ballroom. It too was magnificent, gorgeous, and lovely! We have absolutely no regrets to share about the Semple Mansion. Truly divine!

  • The Semple Mansion was the perfect venue for my daughters November wedding. It is romantic and historical, not to mention absolutely gorgeous. We had the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, dance all in one location. Our guests loved not having to travel place to place, and we were able to use the entire mansion. The bridal suite is perfect for a large party to get ready, the wine grotto is so unique and the ballroom..just gorgeous. Katherine and Laura are very professional and answer questions in a timely manner. We have only positive things to say. The staff and the Semple Mansion made Paige and Logans day one to remember.

  • I loved Semple Mansion from the moment I saw it. There is a grand opulence to the venue. Katherine was absolutely fantastic in answering emails and helping us with details leading up to the big day. Laura was so helpful the day of the wedding and truly went out of her way to make our day special. It was especially nice to be able to bring in our own alcohol, which was particularly important to my father, who wanted a specific type of wine. The Mansion is so gorgeous on its own that we didn’t really need to bring in too many additional decorations. It was wonderful to be able to have the entire Mansion to ourselves so the guests could wander to all the different floors and rooms. We were also impressed that there was an elevator for a handicapped relative and for transporting large items upstairs. The bridal suite and groom’s room are perfect for getting ready. We also purchased the lot across the street for guest parking, which made it easy for out of town guests. I highl... Read more

  • The Semple Mansion was the most beautiful venue for my fall wedding, I couldn't imagine it anywhere else! Katherine was incredible and easy to work with! She was responsive, kind, and thoughtful throughout the entire planning process, as well as the day of. The bartenders the mansion supplied were also incredible and went way above and beyond to help serve guests and clean up at the end of the night.

  • My husband and I booked Semple in the fall of 2019 for our May 2020 wedding, and we initially had a positive experience in communicating, touring the venue, and planning for our special day. However, our wedding was right during the COVID-19 lockdown in Minnesota and it became apparent that our plans would need to change due to the pandemic. My husband and I decided to still get married with only 10 people present, as per the CDC guidelines at the time. Semple was not willing to host even this small ceremony - understandable - but they also were not willing to refund our money. They offered us a new wedding date, but we were not interested in postponing our wedding. We were just severely downsizing. Ultimately, we hired a lawyer to work through the process of getting our deposit and full payment back, as Semple was not able to perform the services we contracted them for. The back-and-forth during these legal proceedings was messy, and Semple misinformed their lawyer on several occasi... Read more

  • We are so glad we chose Semple Mansion for our wedding reception. It's a spacious and versatile facility and it's absolutely gorgeous. I can't imagine a better place to host a formal event. The furniture pieces they provide go perfectly with the space and everything was ready to go the moment we arrived at 9am. We used the mansion for getting ready and taking photos in the morning, we used the downstairs area and wine grotto (such a cool space!! Guests loved the vault!) for cocktail hour (they provide a piano, so it was easy for us to have music!) and the ballroom for dinner and dancing. Our guests loved having the freedom to use all of the different spaces. We found great vendors through Semple and everyone who attended had a wonderful time! We loved that they allow renters to bring in their own alcohol because that made an open bar more affordable than with many packages we saw at other venues. Katherine was a joy to work with. She is very organized, always responds quickly to emails... Read more

  • We toured 8 different wedding venues, but from the moment we walked into Semple Mansion, we were sold. The space is truly stunning, and it provided the perfect setting for our January wedding. There are lots of unique nooks and crannies, both for the bridal party to use and for guests to explore, and the ceremony space was perfect in every way. While the staff is very up-front about it, it is worth noting that there are a lot of fees on top of the base rental fee: there is a huge bill for the bar (not the liquor, but for the set-up, staff, glassware, etc), wedding insurance, parking fees, etc. We feel it was worth every penny, but this is helpful to know from a budgeting perspective. Our one word of advice would be to also hire an outside wedding coordinator. The money you pay goes toward the building--not toward the staff. While they say they have a "day-of" coordinator, that person does very little during the course of your wedding day. We highly recommend the space and feel it was w... Read more

  • Prior to being engaged, I had my heart set on Semple Mansion for my wedding day. Even after touring 4 other venues, both my husband and I felt like Semple was the one! The mansion is a beautiful, grand space that was perfect for our ceremony and reception. We decided to book the whole venue, as we wanted all spaces available due to our guest count. The cost to book Semple Mansion is quite an investment, but it made our wedding day truly special and unique. We went with a Friday evening wedding, which many of our guests actually preferred and it was a bit cheaper on the investment. The Bridal Suite on the 3rd floor is fantastic for the girls to get ready and the Billiard’s Room in the basement is great for a guys hangout spot. We had our ceremony on the main floor, cocktails in the Copper Bar and main floor, and our dance back on the main floor. The 3rd-floor Ballroom is truly stunning, and we decided upon this for our dinner. Working with Katherine and Lauren was truly a pleasure. Th... Read more

  • The venue is very beautiful and was the best location for us--close to our ceremony and many hotel options just down the road. Their contract is straightforward and they will not hide costs from you. Essentially Semple Mansion provides the space and tables. They will not hang around to help set up anything else (just something to consider during your day-of planning). One thing that was upsetting: there was a giant "For Lease" sign in front of the building the entire day of our wedding. Going through guest's photos and seeing that thing is frustrating for how much we paid (we paid for all areas of the reception space for the entire Saturday). The door knob to the bridal suite also kept falling off, and it's the only room you can lock to protect any valuables.
