I couldn't be more happy with how perfect the big day turned out to be. Georgia was professional, so knowledgeable, and responsive. All of the small things I worried about came together perfectly with the help of Nicole and the other great hall staff. It was more perfect than I ever thought one single day could be.

Our wedding was 9/17/16 (the month of the Molly's it seems to be!!) I echo what I have read on this page in that Georgia is simply amazing. If you're walking into wedding planning feeling like you have no idea where to even begin, have no fear as Georgia will have your back! I LOVED working with her, she is incredibly loving and kind and truly has your best interests at heart! I also have to give a shout out to the staff there. All of the security guards who let you in and out of the building are also amazing people! Overall a wonderful staff and a beautiful location.

If you are a newly engaged bride or groom looking for a venue in STP, look no further. I don't even know where to start. Likely with Georgia. Georgia is the Great Hall Coordinator, and a true expert in her profession. Her guidance and honest advice (based on her personal experience) helped us feel confident and comfortable that we made the right decision in choosing this venue. Throughout the wedding planning stages, all email correspondence from Georgia would brighten my day! She kept me relaxed even towards the end when the stress level was very high, because I trusted her 100%. Her enthusiasm lasted from day one, all the way past our wedding date. She truly loves her job, and it shows. Any vendor who has worked with the Great Hall will immediately ask you, "Is Georgia still there?" That is because she is well known and loved throughout the Twin Cities.
I highly recommend using The Great Hall and Georgia's services. Not only do you get a gorgeous building perfectly equipped for weddings, you also have an amazing staff that really cares about you. They suggest, they do not TELL you what you can and cannot do on your day.
We will forever have amazing memories of 9/10/16 ❤

We had our wedding at The Great Hall on October 15, and we could not have been happier! The venue is absolutely beautiful and the staff there are so helpful and nice! Georgia is amazing, she knew the answers to all of our wedding questions, and made our whole experience easy, stress free, and fun. On our wedding day, Sydney and Nicole were incredible at making sure everything ran smoothly. My husband and I did not have to worry about a thing. I'm so grateful we found this venue, it was the perfect place for our wedding. If you are looking for a beautiful, historic, wedding venue in St. Paul, this is an absolute must!

I'm not sure what I loved more, the Great Hall or the head honcho that came with it, Georgia. Georgia is the reception Manager and she was my unofficial partner-in-crime throughout my whole wedding process. She knew more about my Vietnamese wedding traditions than I- clearly an expert in all things Weddings. One thing I learned quickly that make my life easier was to trust her and her staff, because of this, my wedding was simply perfect. Now onto the Great Hall, if you are planning on having a big wedding that can accommodate guests that love to have a good time AND in a BEAUTIFUL venue... just choose this place. I loved NOT having to spend thousands of dollars to decorate the place, it is flawless on it's own.

We had our wedding here in September 2015 and it was unforgettable! The Great Hall is an absolutely gorgeous place to have both a ceremony and reception and is the perfect location in downtown St Paul where it is walking distance to the best photo shoot locations. Every one of our guests loved the venue and remarked how beautiful it was. And if that doesn't convince you, Georgia Meyers, the Great Hall coordinator, is nothing short of amazing! She made the entire wedding planning process so much easier, giving us so many useful tips (take ALL of her advice, she knows what she's doing!), and making sure everything will go smoothly the day of so you don't have to worry about a thing! You will not regret having your wedding or any other special occasion at the Great Hall.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Great Hall in August 2015 and it was the perfect venue! When originally planning our wedding, I was looking for outdoor ceremony venues and a reception venue with an open, airy feel. However, due to the unpredictable Minnesota weather and not knowing if it would be in the 90’s and humid or pouring rain, and my fear of the unpredictable on my wedding day, we found that The Great Hall was a perfect compromise to an outdoor wedding – plus there was no travel necessary between ceremony and reception! The Great Hall is such a beautiful space, not much extra was needed in terms of décor. And to top it all off the cost to hold the ceremony and reception was very reasonable compared to comparable venues in the Twin Cities – and with more freedom in terms of vendors.
Not only was the venue itself beautiful, but Georgia – the venue coordinator – was AMAZING! She is beyond organized and always available to answer any and all questions. I was actually planning my wedding from out of state (Iowa), but she was great about having phone and Skype meetings. Georgia really made me feel stress-free the day of the wedding because I was confident that the event coordinators knew exactly what was going on and what needed to be done. Georgia was there to lend an ear when I was going through a tough time during planning and made sure that I was able to have exactly what I wanted for a bar menu, even though it meant slightly more work than the traditional options.
All of that being said, I HIGHLY recommend The Great Hall as both a ceremony and reception venue!

This was the perfect place to hold a wedding ceremony & reception. Beautiful décor without adding a thing! Staff was so great and pleasant to work with! Georgia gave us so many great ideas - don't need a wedding planner working with her! Yet we were able to incorporate our own ideas, too. With many family members being from the country, this city space felt very safe and secure! Thank you, thank you for making it a wonderful day!
