  • 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!

  • LX was not only a beautiful location for my wedding but the staff we worked with were equally amazing. We started out with one person helping and half way through we got word that we'd be working with Will for the remainder. I was nervous for the change at first but Will eased the nerves with quality, prompt, understanding and kind communication. Day of, we worked with Abby and Yekeen. They both were so great! They and their team worked so hard to make sure our wedding day was smooth. They worked with our florist, cake baker and photographer making sure everyone and everything was in place. The intern that was with Abby (unfortunately forgot her name) went beyond when helping my bridesmaids with my bustle and last minute 'fluffing'. I can't say enough how happy we are that we chose to have our wedding at LX. Between having so many things included and the incredible staff, I would recommend them to everyone for any event! Thank you so much!

  • We cannot express how thankful We are that we got married at the lumber exchange! My husband and I were planning our wedding before the pandemic happened and when it hit we didn’t know what our wedding day would look like. Sara was on top of all of it! She already created about three back up plans so We were ready for our wedding day! Because of Sara and the staff they made us feel super safe having a wedding during a pandemic, they followed all protocols with covid and we had a covid free wedding! The wedding day was better than I ever expected. The staff was on top of everything and We did not have to worry at all! So many guest came up to us and loved the look of the venue and how amazing the staff was! I would 100% recommend this place to anyone. Amazing food, service, everything!! I cannot thank Sara enough for all the hard work she put into helping us plan everything out!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Having a wedding in 2020 is not easy, unless you are working with Lumber Exchange and Hannah Fox. We were in the Dylan's and Sawyers rooms of the Lumber Exchange. There were so many times throughout all of the wedding planning that I felt overwhelmed with stress, and Hannah was able to answer everything. She was a total rockstar and was a great advocate for us. She made sure that we were confident and happy every step of the way. I can not recommend her and the venue enough. The overall venue was the best decision we made. My husband and I are still talking about our day two weeks later and that is a HUGE thank you to our vendors. We felt like everything was a well oiled machine and everyone was so pleasant and willing to be helpful with whatever question or suggestion. We still have our wedding guests talking about how beautiful our venue was and how amazing all of the staff were.

    Thank you for your feedback Liz! It was so wonderful working with you and Zach - you two are such an amazing couple and we are honored we were able to be part of your wedding experience and your big day! I'm so thrilled that you two were able to share such a special day with your loved ones. Cheers to you two! Hannah & The 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

  • 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

  • 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!!

  • 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!
