  • This is definitely the best wedding spot in Minneapolis. The Van Dusen Mansion is a stunning place to have a wedding, and their process is unlike any other venue. Being able to progress through the grounds was a huge hit with our guests, and everything was immaculate. I’m so excited to get our pictures back! Christy was a lifesaver and walked us through everything we needed to know all day and really kept things running smoothly when we ran into some obstacles. The bridal suite was beautiful and spacious enough for my four bridesmaids, the moms, and all of our supplies. The groom’s lounge was a great place for the guys to relax before the venue and for the guests to explore during cocktail hour. The carriage house was the perfect dance floor size and having two levels, one for dancing and one for drinking/lounging/watching, was a great setup. Outside of the rooms that guests saw, there were even more rooms perfectly set up for gorgeous pictures of us and our bridal party. Va... Read more

  • Our experience with The Van Dusen was amazing, I plan on recommending them to everyone! We were so happy that they were offering a petite wedding package which ultimately fit everything we were looking for when wedding planning. We were also blown away by all that was included for the cost. Even after my initial call with Samantha, I knew that it would stay at the top of my list when venue searching. From the time we booked our date through when we said our goodbyes on our wedding day, every single person that was involved was amazing and so easy and great to work with. I'm still in shock that we actually did it and it went so smoothly. You guys make wedding planning look so easy!

  • Oh my goodness - absolutely wonderful! Staff was there as soon as we arrived to take our guest book, place cards, etc. and set everything up for us. Christy was instrumental in helping our day run smoothly and we are so grateful to her! We truly couldn't have asked for a kinder, more helpful group of people to make our day perfect! Thank you! Honestly, we are just tremendously grateful to everyone at The Van Dusen for working so hard to make our day so perfect and special. It was so wonderful, and we wouldn't have changed a thing!

  • Before raving about the venue itself (gorgeous!), I want to make sure I say that Christy was a dream to work with. She was professional, kind, enthusiastic, and ready to make everything work somehow. She made planning from far out-of-state a breeze. The venue speaks for itself from the photos above. It is a beautiful historic mansion - exactly what we were looking for. The guests loved being able to explore its many rooms - as did I and my bridesmaids in the early morning as we were getting ready and enjoying the bridal suite - memories I will always cherish. We ended up moving the ceremony indoors due to rain (good wedding luck?!), but the day-of sudden change went off without a hitch and all of the vendors were aligned and on point. The guests and my family also enjoyed how the carriage house for the dance had two floors, one for socializing and one for grooving and moving. Those who wanted to dance could, and those who wanted to socialize had space to do so but could watch the danci... Read more

  • The Van Dusen was the first place we looked and we fell in love. The venue is gorgeous, the staff was so kind from the very beginning and we knew right away it would be our choice. Mary Jo and the Mintahoe team were excellent. The tasting was informative and a great way to talk to other couples and share ideas. The details meeting with Mary Jo was extremely helpful and we felt very ready to go after that meeting. The whole team was great and answered all our questions right away. The day of could not have gone any smoother because of this fantastic team. Responses to emails were very quick and planning was a breeze with this venue and staff. Mary Jo and Christy were amazing and guiding us through the process and making everything easy. All was fantastic. We have no complaints! Everyone was great, the staff was friendly and helpful to all guests and the bride and groom. The day ran so smooth with no hiccups. We honestly could not think of anything that went wrong or we wish we had. Our ... Read more

  • There are no words to describe how perfect the mansion was. Everything from the suites to get ready in to the progression of the evening to different areas was perfect and better than we could have expected. We stepped foot in the mansion for the first time and knew right away that we wanted to get married there - it was exactly what we were looking for and blew the other venues we had looked at out of the water. During the planning process, all emails were responded to promptly and they were very patient with my requests for tours for family and our photographer. Christy was super helpful on the day of! She helped everyone get their things set up and helped make the day of worry free. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

  • Talk about a PERFECT wedding venue! I fell in love with The Van Dusen the moment I walked in to the gorgeous historic mansion, then almost cried when I entered the stunning courtyard where our ceremony would take place. The amazing staff went above and beyond from the planning process, ensuring every detail was taken addressed. Then, throughout our entire wedding day, they stunned us as they took care of EVERYTHING from set-up, taking care of our guests, ensuring we were comfortable all day long, to clean-up and making sure everyone and everything was accounted for at the end of the night. The pricing was great for the amazing venue and experience we had, and I was so relaxed and happy throughout the ENTIRE experience. I cannot say enough great things about The Van Dusen Mansion and it's fantastic staff. They make a great team with Mintahoe Catering to create a perfect wedding experience.

  • We absolutely loved our wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion! We received so many compliments on the amazing & unique venue, the impeccable service and the excellent food. I was beyond impressed with the staff's level of detail and how they truly made every moment magical. Being able to move throughout the mansion as the ceremony and wedding progressed kept guests so engaged and it was as if you were in 4 different reception venues; both indoors and out! Additionally, we were very excited to have an outdoor ceremony and having been in several weddings prior where we were used to the "we will decide at 10am that morning if you can be outdoors" routine. This was NOT the case with the Van Dusen. They were so thoughtful in watching the weather (on 5 different radars) and decided at 3pm that they would take the chance to go outside per my wishes, and it worked out wonderfully. It goes to show their flexibility, organization and how much they care about making your day perfect. Lastly, th... Read more

  • The Van Dusen Mansion was the perfect place for my daughter's wedding. She loved it, the guests loved it. It was just beautiful from the outdoor courtyard, to the mansion for social hour to the ballroom for dinner to the carriage house for the dance. Top notch from beginning to end, from our first planning meeting to the end of the wedding, the whole staff was wonderful.

  • My husband and I got married at the Van Dusen in September. It was a perfect day, the Venue was amazing & made sure everything was set up exactly how I wanted it. Elizabeth, Jen & Alyssa were very good at responding to my 1000 + emails about every detail imaginable. The only downfall I had was during the day, I didn't see much of anyone that worked there - us girls were pretty thirsty & didn't get water until about 4. We were there at 9 AM. Would have gotten it sooner if we could have found a worker. I also asked for Pink lemonade & champaign in the morning while getting ready which was Ok'd but instead we had orange juice Mimosas which would have been ok - but I'm not a mimosa fan - was pretty excited for the pink lemonade. Other than that, the day was great & the venue was fabulous!!
