With 19,073 square feet of historic charm and updated luxury, Semple Mansion is Minneapolis' most magical wedding venue. Every year since its opening in 2006, we have been an award-winning venue through Minnesota Bride Magazine. The Semple Mansion boasts the largest original residential ballroom in Minneapolis—uniquely situated on the third floor for sweeping views of Downtown Minneapolis. It is absolutely enchanting for an evening reception. 

Construction of the Semple Mansion began in 1899 in the style of the Second Italian Renaissance Revival. It lives on in excellent condition as a timeless statement of class and stately beauty in the heart of Minneapolis.
