Beyond ordinary, extraordinary. The Profile Event Center is a dynamic and exciting setting for wedding receptions, corporate functions, and private events. The stunning Casablanca Hall and Diamond Hall seat 400 and 250 guests, respectively.

Conveniently located in the heart of the Twin Cities (just two blocks east of the U of M Campus and TCF Bank Stadium) with easy access to a wide selection of hotels, major freeways, and ample complimentary parking.

Both halls feature separate outdoor patios, private bridal suites, hardwood dance floors, gorgeous high tech dance lighting (including fog machines, laser lights, disco balls, and computerized robotic lights), chiffon draping backlit with intelligent lighting for customized reception colors, state of the art sound systems, professional performance stages, digital video projection screens, digital video cameras with closed circuit television functionality, and original modern artwork.

Onsite catering creates dinners, buffets, family style, or butler passed appetizers from a variety of American, ethnic, or contemporary dishes, with flexibility to create menus according to your own individualized taste. Hors d’oeuvres to an exquisite multiple course meal, your food will be expertly prepared, beautifully presented and professionally served.

The Profile Event Center is known for providing the ultimate event value, producing a visually and sonically stimulating reception where guests have a wonderful time. No one leaves early from a reception at the Profile Event Center! Read less

This is the most amazing place to get married in Minneapolis. The price was well under any other venue we looked and they offered so much more. They really took time to personalize the event for us and make sure we got everything we wanted. I wish I could live our wedding day over and over; this is partly thanks to the amazing staff and services at the Profile. A big special thanks to Michaela for making sure everything went smoothly and thinking of everything we wanted, but don't know was even possible until you worked your magic.

We had an AMAZING time at our wedding! :) Everyone was extremely helpful and the venue looked great!! The flexibility is amazing and helps you personalize your wedding to exactly what fits your vision!! The food was AMAZING (our guests gave lots of compliments) and the overall price was reasonable and worth it!!
Only complaint is that the photobooth wasn't what we expected. It was very small (a two seater) and the props were ok! It also broke down in the middle of the night BUT they were right there doing what they could to fix it and it was up and running in no time!! People hardly even noticed!!
I HIGHLY recommend celebrating your day at the Profile Event Center!! You will have a blast and won't regret it!

We recently had our wedding reception at The Profile Event Center and couldn't have been more pleased with everything they provided. The staff was top notch, the food was delicious, and the hall was decorated beautifully. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful reception that had our friends and family raving about how great it looked and how wonderful the food was! Everyone we've talked to is shocked at how much they offered and for such a great value. Michaela was our wedding coordinator and she did a phenomenal job both leading up to and the night of the reception. I would highly recommend The Profile Event Center to any couple looking to maximize the bang for their buck and to take away some of the stress and hassle that comes with wedding planning as The Profile basically provides you your own wedding planner to take the stress out of your big day!

The Profile Event Center was everything we asked for, and more. The staff, expecially Sari, were wonderful. Everything just seemed easy and simple, which is hard to pull off when planning a wedding! There honestly isn't one thing I could complain about. Sari did an amazing job of anticipating our needs, and fulfilled all of our wants. The Casablanca Hall is beautiful, and was ample space for 200 guests. The atmosphere and vibe was wonderful, all of my guests have been raving that this was the best wedding they have attended.
The food was highly above average, especially for buffet style. The cupcakes by Andria were to die for!
The Profile offers an outstanding cost value. All the costs were quite reasonable without sacrificing quality. I would use the Profile again, and recommend it to any one for any type of event!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Profile Event Center!!! I do not know how the coordinators do it with hundreds of brides bothering them like I do - but they can keep it together and make sure your special day runs smoothly. Communication was awesome. Every question was answered, every request was completed. I mean, the service you receive here is so amazing, I do not know how to explain it. Whatever you want on your wedding day, you pretty much got it. Sari is an awesome coordinator!!! Couldn't have had a beautiful wedding without all of her help!
Of course, you must use their in-house caterer, but your cakes/cupcakes come from Buttercream - so that is a plus. There are sooooooo many food choices and you can pretty much mix and match whatever, and they are all delicious.
I highly recommend having your wedding here. It is so easy to work with everyone and plan everything in one place. We even chose the centerpieces with them because they all look awesome and were priced so well! No need to hire a rental company for that stuff. They have pretty much everything.
If you are the type of bride that wants to be involved in picking all things from the color of your tables to the lighting of your hall and everything else - this is the place to be. So many choices, but a lot of them are easy to make if you know what you like/want. I was very involved with everything and I love the fact that I got to be a part of that - even choosing the fold of the napkins! :) You won't forget any details, because they are very organized and all departments communicate with each other every well.

I just got married on 11/09/12 in the Casablanca Hall at Profile Event Center.
The minute i toured this venue i fell in love with the lighting and modern touches that Profile had to offer. I was so excited to get married there and on the day of my wedding I was surely not disappointed. I worked with Heather at first (who was amazing!), She unfortunately left to get married herself, so I started working with Sari about a month or 2 before my wedding. Sari really picked up beautifully where Heather left. I loved the fact that she personally called me to introduce herself, it was nice to know that i wasn't going to be treated like another client. I loved the fact that everything is virtually included in the minimum that they have from decorations, food, liquor & dj's. I could even afford an open bar for 100 guest!!

On the day of my wedding, everything went so smoothly! i hired a wedding coordinator (which i recommend any bride to do!) but her and Sari worked together to make sure my day was perfect. The staff at profiles did an excellent job making sure that everyone had the food they wanted and they worked with me and my husband when we had special requests. People still rave about the food (and people HATE wedding food!) we started off with a salad and I got to choose all the vegetables i wanted and dressings. The salad was awesome and fresh, you could tell it was prepared/chopped fresh and not from a bag. the food was hot, the portion was huge and the presentation was gorgeous (it tasted even better than when we went to the tasting) We had our guest choose the chicken marsala, flank steak and vegetable cannelloni! my guest loved the selections and everyone cleaned their plate.

I couldn't thank the staff at profiles enough, they were quick to change the step up from ceremony to reception & they would come up to me and my husband to see if there was anything we needed.

Thank you for making my wedding day PERFECT!!

Absolutely AMAZING!! Profile Event Center exceeded every expectation in service, quality and atmosphere. We continue to get comments from our guests on how amazing our wedding was, how much fun they had and that it was the best wedding they've EVER been to. Michaela and her team provided an elegant and inviting feel for our dinner and a spectacular and exciting one for our dance portion of the evening. They worked so well with all of our other vendors and helped us so much with critical decisions, planning and preparations. And always with the utmost professionalism and cheery demeanor. My husband and I only wish we had another event planned in the near future that we could hold here so we could experience it all again. We absolutely recommend the Profile Event Center to anyone scoping out a venue!!

We loved working with Profile Event Center!! We held our ceremony on the beach in California, so we only had our reception at Profile. What a great idea! All of our wedding jitters were out and we just had to party with our closet friends and family. Planning long-distance with Heather was so easy! She made sure everything was perfect & exactly how we wanted. She even held Skype meetings with us to confirm final details. The best part is they take care of all the rentals/decorations/lighting/DJ/food/alcohol so you just pick which choice fits you best and you can be sure that the quality will be awesome for everything. The team made sure everything came together seamlessly & we felt like royalty at our reception!!

They decorated the whole hall for us & they can customize the lights however you want. They also made our centerpieces, which turned out lovely. They even let us bring in a red carpet and set up a photo-op area for our guests to take pictures!

The food was delicious! We had so many compliments! We did the chocolate fondue fountain for dessert, and it was a wonderful choice! The service was spot-on and I couldn't be happier with the whole staff!

The only negative was the DJ that Profile assigned to us. I don't want to name him, since he was a really nice guy & he is a perfectly great DJ, but my husband and I don't like rap and most hip hop. This made him nervous and he ended up doing a ton of extra work for us, which was so sweet. However, he was so worried about running out of music to fill the time without the usual cheesy wedding music and current hip hop, he didn't play a lot of the music I had requested. All in all, using their DJ's is a safe choice since they know the equipment and they have a large selection of music, but if you have picky tastes, maybe consider finding your own.

TLDR; Profile was the best choice in MN for a fun, personalized wedding reception at a great price! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Pre-Wedding review- Everyone at the PEC has been nothing short of fabulous! They've been flexible, acommodating, and I don't think more than 2 hours have passed between sending an email and getting response. My only complain is that when we went to the group tasting, we were a little underwhelmed with the food. A lot of it was under-seasoned, and I wish they had some more choices for appetizers. However, we did find dishes that were excellent, and are very happy with our menu, so it's a very small complaint. :)

Post-Wedding review – A+++: Seriously, everything was amazing. The Wednesday before the wedding I stopped in to drop off table squares and our DVD slide show, and Jill took me into the Diamond Hall to see the dark purple lighting they were going to use on the chiffon draping. Well, it was magenta pink, not at all what I had in mind! Jill said that's why she wanted me to come in and see it, because she thought it was pink too! The owner, Giovanni, was there and had his crew add blue to it and it turned dark purple, which was EXACTLY what I had in mind. Also the tech specialist, Ron, was able to use my lighting gobo and took the time to ask me how I wanted it used, and it was perfect the day of. The morning I walked into the hall to start decorating, the lighting was perfect, and everything looked amazing! Heather and Jill were both there all day, along with a few other assistants who's names I forget (I'm sorry!), and everyone was so great about checking in on us and making sure we were doing ok. During the actual reception, everything went flawlessly, and Heather and Jill came to check on the head table and make sure that Monkey and I had everything we needed. We got so many compliments about how great the venue was, how good the food was, and how unique it was. Our reception really was amazing, and the PEC was the main reason for that. My only small complaint was that the tip jar the bartenders put out was HUGE. I really wasn't happy with a tip jar in general, but the one they put out was way too big. But I don't blame the PEC staff for that, especially because I didn't voice my concern. Other than that, everything was amazing!

In House DJ, Jim Fellows: Post-Wedding review – A++: We ended up coming in under the minimum for the Profile, so we decided to book their in house DJ about two weeks before the wedding, and boy am I glad we did! I had originally planned on doing play lists for between band sets, and there is no way I would have had time to get it done. Jim was great – I was so unorganized about the music, and only managed to get him a few of the songs ahead of time. He was able to do our other songs on the fly, and he NAILED the timing on announcing us during our entrance song, which doesn't sound like a big deal, but it was a big deal for me, as he did it exactly how I had pictured it in my head, and it totally set my mood for the night. :) I felt a little bad because he didn't get to do a whole lot of DJ-ing, as we did have a live band, but when I mentioned this in email, he said that he was happy to back up the band, and just wanted us to have a great night, which I thought was really sweet of him. He played great music between the band sets, and even though we only met him that night, he was really fun to work with. I highly recommend him! :)

Everyone was so nice and helpful, and any question that I had was answered quickly. The food and service was amazing, and we hired our DJ through PEC and he was wonderful also. He did a great job keeping the party going. This place is open until 2 and we partied until then! It was great. The lighting is so beautiful at PEC, and they do a great job making it about the couple. I recommend this to anyone! We had such a great time.

We just had our Reception here. Loved it! Nothing more to it.
Customer Service is well above and beyond. We felt we were in good hands the whole time and everything went off with out a hitch. Very pleased in that regard 6 out of 5.

The room was gorgeous. Better than any place we looked at by far. The lofts, sound system, and especially the lighting system, along with the contemporary looking bar all were leaps and bounds above any other place we looked at.

We were in the Diamond hall (smaller of the 2) with 150 or so guests. I wouldn't recommend going too much higher than that in that particualr hall.

There was a wedding happening on the other side.. but there was no notice in the least.

Thecost was right, We were in January, but on top of that, you could bring in your own booze without penalty. That was big for us.

Lastly the food was good. I am not about to comment in detail here, as this is pretty subjective. But I can say the helpings were large enough, and no one thought ill of the food. I recommend going to a free tasting to form your own opinion there beyond that.

Over all the night was a blast! The provided Dj was great! (granted I sent him a playlist a month ahead of time), we had a slide show of photos playing during the happy hour and dinner on the screen, which everyone loved; so I recommend it.

As a whole the Profile center is a great place to host your reception. We are so happy wiht it, and we are taking away a full night of great memories.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Profile and it was perfect, everything we had been looking for! Being able to light up the room any color made it very unique and added a lot to the space, not to mention saved costs on bringing in color through decoration.

I have absolutely nothing but wonderful things to say. EVERYONE at the PEC was fantastic. The staff were all great and Heather had tabs on us and our needs from the second we got there. The food was fantastic, everything ran smoothly, and all the guests raved about how cool the venue was. Even before the wedding Heather, the event coordinator, was awesome to work with. I booked with her over two years out from my wedding and she always has been professional and quick to respond and has never made me feel bad for all of my endless questions and obsessing!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Profile Event Center in the Casablanca hall this past July. I don’t even know where to begin! For starters, the food was absolutely amazing. We have never had a better meal at a wedding, and neither had our guests. We heard COUNTLESS compliments on the food and the staff. The chef went completely above and beyond by including specialty touches with the entrée’s and ordering edible flower garnishes that we mentioned we loved. Heather, Patrick and Giovanni were nothing short of saints throughout the planning process. They helped us with EVERY planning detail, and made sure on the day that everything went perfectly and turned out beautifully. We could not have had a better wedding experience.
We went with one of Profile’s in-house DJ’s (DJ Kyle), and he was nothing short of remarkable! The dance floor was packed all night and EVERYONE was dancing (from 2-92 yrs. old). DJ Kyle was on his feet the entire night and so were our guests. Our friends in their twenties and grandparents all had the same response, “that was not only the best wedding I’ve ever been to, that was the best party I’ve ever been to!”. We couldn’t have been happier.
We ordered our cake from the in house pastry chef at Profile, and also had them make our ice sculpture. Their staff did an amazing job making both the cake and the sculpture gorgeous, and they were exactly what we had designed/described. We also heard that we had the “best tasting wedding cake” and many of our guests wanted to know where it was from. Profile was simply a one-stop shop to an unforgettable wedding.
Two of our favorite things about the Profile Event Center were the Bridal/groom’s suites, and the BYOB style bar. We had many children at our wedding, and were concerned about kid’s running around and misbehaving. However, the bridal/groom’s suites, outfitted with Xbox 360 and all, came to the rescue. At the end of the night, neither my husband nor I remembered seeing/hearing one crazy kid. And to make things even better, all of the kids said it was the “most fun night of their life”. The suites were such a priceless amenity! While the kids were having fun playing games, the adults were having theirs at the bar. It was such a blessing to be able to provide an open bar ALL NIGHT for our guests without breaking the bank. In fact, all of the alcohol for ~300 guests for 9 hours cost less than our friends who gave their guests a couple of drink tickets and one keg during cocktail hour at theirs (at another reception hall of course). We never thought that we would actually SAVE money by offering an open bar, but we did  In addition, the bartenders from the Minnesota School of Bartending were sharp, professional, friendly, and kept our guests entertained throughout the night.
Lastly, Profile recommended Atomic K Records and Productions to us for our Photography/videography, and we could not have been happier with how things turned out. The pictures and HD video from the day/night were amazing, and the staff was such a joy to work with! We saved a lot of money by going with Atomic K over other options, and would recommend them to ANYONE who is in need of photography/videography for their event.
Overall, we whole heartedly recommend the Profile Event Center, and hope to be invited to a wedding there in the future. Profile is truly “beyond ordinary, extraordinary”.

We had our wedding at the Profile Event Center in the diamond hall in April 2011. With the help of Heather and Patrick the planning was no stress at all. They sit down and go over every detail with you. They were more then happy to answer all my emails promptly and also available for phone calls. Many services such as the wedding cake, decor, music and photography are also available directly from Profile. The location itself is spectacular! Very different then your traditional wedding venue. We wanted a more modern yet, romantic reception and with the wall draping and lighting options we were able to achieve just that. All the ladies commented on how much the room looked just like a fairytale while the guys commented on how it looked like a modern club. The food is amazing! We offered our guests fillet Mignon, almond crusted chicken and mushroom ravioli. We also offered a variety of appetizers. All of our guests raved about the food and we had many comments that it was the best wedding food they ever had. The ability to bring in all your own alcohol was huge! It saved us so much money. We had red and white wine, champagne beer and a variety of mixed drinks for 150 people for under $2000. Profile event center made my wedding memorable not only for me and my husband but for all our guests too!

AMAZING! We had our reception in the newly remodeled Casablanca room and it more than I could've asked for. It truly was the best time ever. With the band, lighting and hundreds of candles lit it was like a dream. Our guests kept coming up to me to tell me this was the best wedding they've ever attended and how amazing the room and the food was. The food was incredible, seriously! We had 3 entrees: almond crusted chicken, flank steak and cheese ravioli and everyone was raving about it. The late night pizzas were a hit too. By bringing in our own alcohol and bartenders we were able to save a ton of money. Heather and Patrick were fantastic to work with and responded to questions or requests quicker than any of our vendors. I would recommend PEC in a heartbeat!

I had my reception in the Casablanca Hall at the Profile Event center. When I first saw the center, I was a bit skeptical because it looked small, old, and I was not sure how all of my guests were going to fit. However, they completed an all new renovation in Jan, 2011 and it looks absolutely amazing. I booked the place without knowing what the renovation would look like and it was completed above my expectations. Everything was ready for us on March 5, 2011. I worked very closely with Heather and occasionally Patrick and they were both professional, experienced, flexible, and easy going. Emails, phone calls and frequent drop-ins to the hall were common and always welcomed. I never felt like I was annoying them or bothering them. I cannot express to you how important it is to have a coordinator as organized as Heather is. It makes it much easier for you! This is a place for someone who has a budget in mind but would like to have a beautiful wedding as well. I chose to do my own centerpieces but the ones they provide are reasonable and very nice as well. The piece that sold me on this place was the bring your own beverage policy and the pretzels and cheese! We invited approximately 300 people which would have been nearly $9,000 for an open bar at any other venue. However, a huge perk in regards to the PEC is that you can bring your own which costed us around $2,000. We saved a substantial amount right there and we were able to provide good drinks, food, and ambiance to our company. This allowed us to be able to serve everyone either steak (its cooked on the rare-medium side, be aware), chicken, or mushroom ravioli as well as providing them late night snacks which were a HUGE hit (pretzels and cheese (my fav) and pizza). These are just a few example of how amazing the PEC was and how happy we were with it. Best of luck to your planning and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thanks again!

I LOVED the Profile Event Center. I booked them almost two years out for my Oct 2010 wedding and they worked with me from the start like my wedding was just around the corner. The coordinator there, Heather, is fantastic. She responded quickly to all my questions - and there were a lot of questions over the entire engagement :).

The space itself is also very unique. We were in the Diamond Hall which has multiple levels and lighting built right in (the other room has lighting too). It had such a fun an unique feel to it which is one of the reasons we picked it - we did not want your traditional hotel ballroom feel.

The food there is also AMAZING! I come from an Italian family so the food being good was really important to us. We also served it family style which added to the overall feel we had that night.

Couldn’t have asked for anything else!

The Profile Event Center is just what they say?.Beyond Ordinary!! We live in North Carolina and were not having the best of luck finding a venue for our wedding in Minneapolis. That all stopped when we found the Profile Event Center. From the first time we spoke with the staff, we knew that this would be our place.

We felt special from the day we spoke to the event coordinator until we left our reception exhausted from the amount of fun we had!! Working with the event coordinator on the details of our wedding reception was so easy (a breath of fresh air!). She helped to insure we had enough appetizers for our guest (which we originally did not). She was so helpful throughout the process, always there to answer questions.

The week of our event, we were less stressed than we thought we would be because of the wonderful staff. We were able to decide on our lightning options, which were fantastic!! Overall, we had a wonderful day and the Profile Event Center went above and beyond all our expectations!!

The reasons we would recommend you book your wedding reception at the Profile Event Center:

-Friendly and capable staff that go out of their way to make your event memorable
-Sound system that still has our guests talking about it (and it is a month later)
-Amazing lighting that would make any club jealous with the ability to transform from sophisticated dinner to fun and dance.
-Wonderful bar area
-Food that is absolutely AMAZING!!
-A reception that will stand out in the minds of all your guests!!

The service here was outstanding. I had only lived in the Twin Cities for about a year and a half before getting engaged so I was unfamiliar with the places commonly used for wedding receptions. I could obviously think of the large, expensive venues but that was not really within my reach. After doing my research and finding the Profile Event Center, I was at ease. The food reviews were amazing, the versatility of the venue was promising, and the all inclusiveness in the pricing really appealed to my needs. Heather and her team were amazing to work with. Heather is the event coordinator at the venue and her assistance was priceless. She made the entire planning process easy and made my fiancé and I really feel taken care of. They also have tasting events where you can try every food and dessert option they offer and consult with baker to start discussing your cake. They bring in wedding bands, outside vendors, along with decorating the spaces so that you can start getting an idea on decorating and set up for your event. The cost process is easy to understand and there are no hidden fees or taxes. I knew months in advance what my final costs would be and this made saving and preparing much easier. Everyone complimented the food and ease of the ceremony and reception. Everything went smoothly and was just as I had planned. I would recommend them to anyone!

My wife and I held our reception here recently. We were very satisfied with the entire experience. Our event coordinator, Alana, made herself very available during the planning phases and was so easy to work with! We used the Diamond Hall, which was very modern with great decorations and lighting included. All of our guests loved the food. While it is not the cheapest reception hall you will find, we feel that we got a great value for everything that was provided. Will recommend this event center to any friends getting engaged!

My husband and I fell in love with the unique look of this multi leveled reception hall. Everything from the lighting to the food to the staff was excellent. Our guests could not say enough great things about our reception, and many said it was the most fun they had at a wedding in years! Heather was a pleasure to work with, and incredibly flexible with all of our ideas. We loved that we could provide our own beverages (a HUGE savings!) which was a great treat for our guests ;) We even had late night snacks brought out, and because we could have the room until 2am, we invited official "wedding crashers" to keep the party going all night! It was perfect!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone who cares about their time and health more than about money. You don't have to worry about where to find the decorations or who is going to take care of the leftovers. You just come, enjoy and have lots of fun and leave worry-free. Of course, if you want something very unusual, it will be harder to organize - like we wanted some part of the hall covered with draping cuz we were afraid it would look too empty - but they suggested putting a few couches there and it turned out to be a great place for kids to play without distracting everyone. So even if they are not available to meet your requirement exactly as you want, they have enough room to improvise. The manager we worked with was patiently helped us to make decisions on every single point.
The chocolate fondue is a must - it was the attraction of the night!

Profile Event Center is an amazing place to have your wedding reception. We had our reception in the Casablanca Hall and loved the uplighting and decor of the room. The best thing about Profile is that there are no hidden costs. From day one that I went on their website, I knew exactly how much the minimum on the room was. PEC's system is that you pay the minimum and you are allowed to put your food, liquor, cake, decor, dj etc toward that cost, and all the pricing is outlined right on their website. There was really no surprises. We went to a tasting open house and were able to see all their decor and food options and decide on the spot what we liked. I hate to call it one stop shopping, but it was really that easy. I did not have to deal with four different vendors to get my reception to come together. The Wedding coordinators at PEC help you along the way and make sure that you get what you want.

The staff was very helpful and flexible when working with us, especially since we lived out of state while planning the wedding. They had no problem having late evening Skype meetings with us and even arranged to have a food tasting outside their normal hours. They took care of every little detail and really made the experience super special. This venue is so fun! Very romantic during the dinner and super fun for the dance with their state of the art sound and light system. Definitely would recommend!

I can't stress enough how great this venue was. Heather, the coordinator, was completely present the entire night and made the timeline run so smoothly. Not only did she make it run smoothly but her assistants also went above and beyond to serve us food and drinks all night - even brought the head table tequila shots. The food is not typical wedding food. We received many compliments from our guests on how great their meals were, from hors d'oeuvres to dessert. When we booked the venue, we were also given the option to bring in our own liquor, which allowed us to have an open bar at a great price. They don't do this anymore but have really reasonably priced alcohol that you can purchase through them. Finally, the best thing about PEC is that they provided us catering, DJ, bartenders, cake, tables and linens, candles, wedding coordinator, and the list goes on. You don't have to worry about hiring out and coordinating with different companies because it is all taken care. Highly

WEDDING RECEPTION VENUE (Ceremony elsewhere)
-Not the most impressive from the outside, quality is not 5 stars on the inside, but the lighting system makes for a very fun and memorable experience.

QUALITY OF SERVICE: Mostly excellent, I put 4/5 only because I believe for them to earn 5 stars they would need to press linens for each event, line up table settings perfectly, a few charger plates had spots on them from washer (noticed during setup) - the above and beyond duties to make it perfect to earn 5.
RESPONSIVENESS: The event planners are fantastic and usually got back to me in less than 36 hours. Only a time or two, it took a few days because our main event planner had the day off or something.
PROFESSIONALISM: All of the staff are very personable and professional, i definitely recommend working with them, it is so easy!
VALUE: 4/5..most things are affordable and we actually talked them down a bit on a few things - they will take some comparison prices, for instance on chair covers/bows. I didn't give them 5 stars because there were still some annoying charges (like cake cutting fee if you didn't use their in-house cake, everyone gets charged for soda even if they don't drink it, expensive table lighting etc). a HUGE bonus though, you can bring in your own alcohol and bartenders - we had a complimentary open bar for 230 people for an affordable price.
FLEXIBILITY: Great at this, like I said, they will discount some stuff if you ask and give a reason (comparables, etc). Only very minute things were they not able to be flexible about, most most everything was fantastic.

My Wife and I were married this past summer and we had an OK experience with the Profile Evernt Center. Prior to the Day everything went great!! The day of the Center Pieces were wrong and we were just told "Sorry for that" which didn't sit very well with me. I was assured that everything would be perfect and it was far from it. The Food was GREAT but taken down early and the cake took for ever to come out of the kitchen, half of my guests didn't get cake and then we took 4 boxes of it home. We were so looking forward to having our wedding at the Profile Event Center and we were let dwon. We would use this place again only if we HAD to.

we just got married in the diamond hall this April. Everything went great. The transformation from wedding to dinner was seamless. The food is to die for (steak tips and salmon). in house DJ well worth it, he know that sound and lights.

The end did not go as smooth as it began. manager seemed pushy to get us out be the 3am contracted end time. The sound tech locked us out of the ballroom before we had everything packed.

Overall the Profile staff was great! The food was awesome and everyone loved the lightening system.
I just would not recommend it for a ceremony due to configuration of the place.
Our DJ was not that great to work with I mean he was nice but had no songs at all we asked to play days in advance. The songs were queued up wrong. I felt it was a waste of my money and we should of just went with an IPOD.

I just attended a wedding at this location and I would have to say it was the worst reception I have ever attended. Seating was so tight that one could literally not get up to and exit for the batrhroom or the bar unless all others on their side of the table exited first. The Mens bathroom for this event and at least one other event in the building consisted of two urinals and one stall (digustlingly so) for all. The women bathrrom was a waiting line from the word go. One could not even get up and walk around as every opening was a critical path for navigation. Horrible. Most people left early due to the crowdedness. This center should have at least told the party that they were over capcity. And don't even get me going on parking (he said three city blocks later). Ugh.
