  • We had our wedding here in February and it was an absolute dream. Our coordinator Will was wonderful to work with, and the staff on the day of our wedding was also great. If something went wrong, I never found out about it. They were willing to work with us on a tighter budget and helped us cut corners where we could. Everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have imagined a better place to have our wedding. For all the right reasons, it is definitely a day I will remember forever! Thank you so much to everyone at the LX for such an amazing wedding day!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Amanda! Hards down, the best part about our job is hearing from our couples about how magical their day was! Will absolutely LOVED working with you both and the photos you shared are stunning! We're so thrilled your day was everything you wanted it to be and will be a cherished memory forever. Cheers to you and Josh!

  • We got marred here the weekend before Christmas 2019, and we have been hearing one word to describe our wedding from our guests- MAGICAL! And this is 100% due to the LX team. Hannah was a dream to work with during the planning process, very detail oriented, kept me on track, always had fast responses and helped me when I needed a different perspective. Kelsey and Crystal were also spectacular as day of contacts. Kelsey helped us walk through our rehearsal to get over any day-before jitters. Crystal was like an old friend on the day of, keeping me sane, helping my bridal party with any questions we had and making sure we stayed on our timeline, while still getting to have fun and enjoy ourselves. I do want to also note that every single member of the service staff was friendly and answered all questions with a smile. Lastly, I feel like I have to address how absolutely BEAUTIFUL the space was. We needed very little decor and the space was so natural with the exposed brick, large... Read more

    Rylie & Eric, Thank you so much for your kind words! Your wedding was gorgeous and we especially loved the circular wreaths your bridesmaids held instead of traditional bouquets! A great idea for a Christmas themed wedding! We are thrilled you and your guests found your experience with us MAGICAL! We think our couples are pretty magical too! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness, LX Team

  • Sara and her staff were wonderful. For the rehearsal dinner they were on top of every detail and took care of any question or request immediately. Everything went perfect!! Would highly recommend Sara and her staff to take care of your Big Day or any event.

    Mike, Thank you so much for your kind words! Working with you and your family was such a pleasure. Getting to know everyone throughout the planning process is just one of the many reasons I love my job. I hope our paths cross again! Best Wishes, Sara

  • We had an amazing day despite all of the restrictions and changes required due to COVID-19. We came into our wedding week very stressed about some of the restrictions in place and being able to experience the wedding day with at least a minor sense of normality. We ended up being blown away by essentially everything. Our venue coordinator, Sara, was great to work with throughout the entire process. We had several conference call meetings to go over each aspect of the day. Regardless of whether we had told her if something was set in stone she always asked again to make sure we were certain. One major bonus for us was the willingness of the venue to allow us to utilize the ENTIRE floor (both venues) for our day without charging us extra. Not only did this provide for a great aesthetic, but made our guests feel much safer due to the ease in which they could socially distance. Additionally, Sara and the staff did a great job communicating every step of the way despite the constant c... Read more

    Paige & Jake, Thank you so much for trusting us to be a part of your special day. We know you have a ton of amazing venues to choose from and we are honestly honored you chose us! Planning a wedding in itself can be stressful, all Covid updates aside. You two were great to work with and of course I appreciated your patience through all of the updates. Your lanterns by the fountain were gorgeous and hearing the song "This Will Be" was a staff favorite. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your day. Best, Sara & LX Team

  • We are so blessed to be able to have got married at LX!!! Throughout all of the times of uncertainty with COVID-19, LX was with us every step of the way. They implemented Governor Walz’s executive orders to a T and our guests were pleased with how they maintained social distancing with 180 people!! The food was amazing and our guests can’t stop talking about how beautiful the venue was!!! I wanted a modern and classy wedding and LX provided us just that!! Special shoutout to Sara T, Abby G and Juju who made my day run seamless !!!! Highly recommend having a pandemic wedding at LX Mpls!!

    Colette & Alex, Working with you over the past two years was so much fun! I enjoyed getting to know you and Alex throughout the process. You were the first couple since Covid started to execute their wedding with us and we cannot thank you enough for trusting us to execute your special day! No matter how many updates you received throughout the Covid process, you were always calm and so pleasant. You let nothing stand in your way and I thoroughly enjoyed your energy and attitude while planning. Turns out the day was perfect and we had so much fun! Stay in touch! -Sara & LX Team

  • Our experience with the Lumber Exchange was top notch- from the wedding planners to the venue itself. We actually had to work with more than one planner (COVID reasons), but everyone we planned with was incredibly helpful and professional. They worked extra hard to make our day go as close to our dream as possible with COVID. Their response time to communications were great. The spaces are absolutely beautiful. The food was excellent. (The food tasting is amazing!!) The day of staff knew exactly what was going on and there was no miscommunication on their part. Even the security guards were pleasant. I feel like the staff bent over backwards to help in any way we asked them. I couldn't be more happy with our experience. Book the LX today!

    Kaitlyn & Ryan, We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. We enjoyed you too! I know that planning a Covid weddings isn't what anyone envisions for their BIG DAY, but you did it with ease. The Minute To Win It games were such a creative fun touch that I have definitely recommended since your wedding! You took lemons and made lemonade. Thank you for trusting us to be such a huge part of your special day. Working with you was an absolute pleasure and I appreciate your patience throughout the planning process. All of the best, Sara & LX Team

  • We held both our ceremony and reception at Lumber Exchange and could not be more happy with the evening! The venue speaks for itself, it is picture perfect! The facility is gorgeous with amazing bridal and groom suites to start the day, so many close locations for pictures (rooftop overlooking downtown, marble staircase, entryways, Pourhouse, etc...), and the perfect setup for a party! The staff make the experience so great with easy communication and coordination to help decrease the stress of planning the biggest day of your life! From the in-person meetings, emailing, dinner and bar service, concierge, security, and especially the day-of assistance; it was also seamless! Not only did our guests comment on the amazing evening but as the couple, we couldn't have asked for a better place to get married and through an amazing party!!

  • If you are looking for a venue I don't have any recommendations. If you are looking for THE venue, listen up! From day one after visiting the Lumber Exchange Event Center, Julie and her Team treated me and my husband like royalty. After the tour my husband and I went downstairs to the Pourhouse to have dinner and a couple drinks and to our surprise our tab was covered by Julie and her Team! Can you say over-the-top? We hadn't even told them we wanted to book a date yet! Here are some of the highlights: 1. COMPLIMENTARY day of concierge that handles everything from creating a secret stash of appetizers in your bridal suite to sweeping up a dropped drink seconds after it shattered on the dance floor. Allie you are a star! 2. I was able to come in the day before the wedding WITHOUT A FEE to decorate. Vanessa met me at the door and carried nearly everything upstairs for us and continued to help us set up. (SIDE NOTE: Vanessa had to get security to handle an overly drunk groomsm... Read more

  • We absolutely loved the Lumber Exchange for our wedding venue! We utilized Sawyer's on 5th and Dylan's. The space was absolutely gorgeous and the staff was extremely helpful and responsive. Working with Ashley was a dream and she was quick to answer our questions and to help us understand everything that goes into planning a wedding. The day of our wedding went off without a hitch and our guests had an amazing time! We have gotten so many compliments about the space and how amazing the food was! The bartenders were also awesome and our guests had so much fun interacting with them! I would highly recommend using the Lumber Exchange for your wedding venue!

  • When my then fiance and I were looking for a venue, we had a very tight budget. I had really liked this place online, but wasn't sure if we could afford it. I emailed the venue back and said I didn't think it would work out, and instead of an "I hope you find your place" they emailed back and said "we will work with your budget because if this is where you see yourself getting married, that's all that matters!" Which was a HUGE relief because when we saw this venue in person we both completely fell in love. Knowing I was working with people who cared about my wedding and not just the money was amazing and not the normal. From our initial email, to saying goodbye after my wedding- the ladies at this venue were absolutely everything a bride (and groom) could need. We were married in the Sawyers room, which is so intimate and perfect for what we wanted! The chef made our requested meals with no hesitations, they set up the decor exactly how I envisioned, and made my dream wedding a reali... Read more

  • Only giving one star because zero is not an option. Used the LX for both our wedding and reception - a massive whole day event typical of Indian weddings. Although it is hard to find venues that host Hindu ceremonies, Indians, DO NOT go with the LX. It is well worth your money to go elsewhere. For any bride, the following details will be relevant in deciding on your wedding venue. Read on for details on the many complaints we had with their professionalism and competence: - We had three event coordinators over the course of a year that switched each time with no notice on our part. The chef turned over twice with no notice. The LX does not handle information transfers well. Do not book them if you have a long engagement; their staff is not competent enough to pass the torch successfully and they have A LOT of turnover. The quality of their food also leaves a lot to be desired for the price they charge. - Poor response to basic requirements of public spaces. All event spaces should ... Read more

  • Our wedding in the Fountain Room at The Lumber Exchange was amazing!!!! The venue is absolutely breathtaking!!! We fell in love at first sight when we first toured and were still in awe the day of! We had SO many guests compliment on how gorgeous this venue was! The whole day went off without a problem. Our coordinator and event managers were on top of everything the whole day. The on site chef made delicious food that was displayed beautifully. The staff was so nice and friendly. We only had a handful of things that we wish were different. The biggest thing was the high price, particularly the high prices of the food/drinks. But being a downtown wedding, we knew it wasn’t going to be cheap. Our sales manager/coordinator was SO helpful with my many questions throughout the planning process, but I did wish she was a little faster to respond to my emails. I know she was very busy with weddings every weekend though, in addition to other events they do, so I completely understood. Also, ... Read more

  • We had an amazing experience having our wedding at the Lumber Exchange. My husband and I wanted a Minneapolis venue that was modern but still had some classic beauty. The Fountain Room and River Room is what we ended up renting, and everyone commented on how cool our venue was. The modern brick, huge ceilings, light posts and chandeliers are stunning. We worked with Sara Thomalla throughout the planning process – she was incredible and bent over backwards to answer our questions and accommodate our requests. My husband and I are vegan, and we were thrilled that Lumber Exchange catering was able to meet those needs. Our guests loved the food, and 99% of them are not vegan. A big win! The Lumber Exchange and surrounding area gave us photos even better than we could have dreamed. We are obsessed with the historic but modern look of the exterior, the massive marble staircase, and the towering skyscrapers we captured going on the top floor of the nearby parking garage. We’d def... Read more

  • This place is beautiful. It’s a gorgeous, dramatic venue with a really beautiful bridal and grooms suite. That’s about it. The person that you basically plan your wedding with very well may not be there or scheduled on the actual day of your event. A box of our wedding decor was misplaced and the coordinator for the day came up to me (bride) during dinner to go over security footage. The food we tried at the tasting is not the food we were served at the wedding and someone was actually hospitalized because of an allergic reaction when they asked the server if it was okay for them to eat. We have tried to get in touch with someone there for over a month and have yet to hear back. This place is not cheap. We thought for the amount we paid, there would be a little more organization and follow up but sad to say there was not. *if you DO decide to have your event here, do not use their recommendation of Complete DJ either.

  • We found the Lumber Exchange through a co worker who recommended the space to us and I’m so glad we found it! We got so many compliments on the aesthetics of the space and loved the beautiful marble staircase that served well for all of the group and family pictures! On top of that Julie did a great job prepping us in the prior weeks to the wedding and Chrishy, Vanessa, and Kenzie did an amazing job day of from setting the tables to, running to CVS for Advil and Gatorade, to making sure the building was the correct temperature. I can’t thank them enough for helping my wedding day go smoothly and allowing me to truly enjoy my day!
