Prior to our engagement in May, I decided that I would pursue my Master's Degree this fall. Once I started searching for venues, I realized that I would not have a lot of time to the grunt work of wedding planning-especially planning the reception! This caused a lot of anxiety. However, that anxiety was relieved after our walk through with Event Coordinator, Patrick. Their straight-forward pricing (everything except taxes can be easily found on their website) and competitive service charges were great! They even get back to me usually within 2 hours. The most I have gone without a response is 12-18 hours!

Also, even though their food is a little more expensive than some competitors, their food was AMAZING!!! Seriously, if they had a restaurant, I would go their every day!

However, it doesn't stop there! After reviewing the competition, Profile Event Center blew everyone else out of the water with their set up and take-down, on-site florist and caterer, their coordination of DJ, bartender, and security services, a wide variety of decorations to choose from, bridal and groom suite, access to the venue from 10:00a.m. to 3:00a.m. the next day, and checklists (DID I MENTION CHECKLISTS?!)!!!

With their I can finally breathe easy knowing that I will have the most stress-free reception of all time! I AM SO EXCITED!!!

We loved working with the Profile Event Center! They helped us every step of the way, and made the entire wedding planning process very easy. They were also accommodating with changes that I wanted to make. The food was phenomenal, and the cupcakes were great as well. Everyone was very professional and helpful the day of our wedding as well.

Profile Event Center exceeded all of our expectations and then some. We held our wedding reception in the Diamond Hall and couldn't have been more happy with our Profile Event Center experience. From the moment we signed our contract right down to the night of, our coordinator, Bry, was always available to answer any questions or concerns and provide feedback/suggestions that ultimately made our reception exactly what we wanted. We received a ton of compliments on the uniqueness of the Diamond Hall, as well as the delicious food. I can't stress enough how easy Profile made our entire experience; being able to work with one single vendor made things all that much more enjoyable. We would highly, highly recommend Profile Event Center to anyone and everyone looking for the perfect wedding reception.

We had our wedding reception at Profile Event Center and I could not be happier with how it turned out! From the beginning we loved that they took care of everything for us, including food, flowers, decorations, DJ, Photo Booth, etc. There is no rental hall fee so it all goes towards the minimum fee. The pricing is listed right on their website so there were no surprises. Patrick was with us every step of the way and made it all so easy! When we had questions we'd get responses back right away.
We had a band play at our reception and they loved playing on the awesome sound system. The night of the party everything went very smooth and the staff was great and super accommodating to anything that we needed. We keep hearing from our guests how awesome the party was and how good the food was. The new floor looks amazing and combined with the colored wall / ceiling lights and other decorations it really all came together and made the night perfect! I highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception.

I loved everything about this venue!! We worked with Patrick and he was amazing! We brought a lot of our own decorations because I wanted my wedding to be really personalized the way I wanted it and they were so helpful with making sure everything went smoothly!! Definitely will recommend!! And I received A LOT of compliments about the food buffet!!!

This venue is absolutely stunning! I loved that we didn't have to do any of the work ourselves. The ceremony and reception were gorgeous, the flowers were amazing, we got RAVE reviews of the cupcakes, the food was delicious, the staff was fantastic, and the DJ was awesome. This place is so organized and professional. I didn't have any stress during the planning process thanks to them. If I could do it over again I would have everything the same.

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!
