We had our reception at Vadnais Heights Commons on the coldest day in January! We loved having our beautiful winter wedding here because the large floor to ceiling windows gave us the feeling we were having an outdoor wedding! It was stunning with candles everywhere and the space with the high ceilings felt modern with rustic beams and character. Lorah Our event coordinator was phenomenal-- she was so fast to respond to our emails and questions and helped to make our day just how we wanted it! They offer great catering options and people continue to rave about our perfect winter wedding!

I had my wedding at the VHC. My now husband and I were looking for a unique wedding venue. It truly is beautiful. It has vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows on three of the walls,(which with all the natural light made for awesome pictures!) beautiful flooring and a giant fire place in the foyer (which a lot of our guest took advantage of and did family pictures in front of). With all of our decor it was STUNNING! It glowed.
Lorah was the main person I worked with and she was very helpful thought the process considering that half the time I was planning I was living out of state.
I would give it five stars but I can not due to the fact of the amount of times I got frustrated with the cost. When I thought I was done paying for the venue I would still owe a couple hundred here or there, but that is the wedding industry for you! All in all I am happy that we chose the commons for our beautiful day!

Vadnais Heights Commons responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the wonderful review. We do give all our clients a spreadsheet with all costs at the time of the tour and we reiterate all costs and potential costs prior to signing the contract.
We never add any fees or costs unless the client decides to.
We take great pride in being upfront and honest with all that we do at Vhc event to the point of giving Brides suggestions on how to cut costs with ideas when in the planning process.
Vhc can transform into anything from majestic to rustic elegance. We want every bride to have fond memories of the entire planning process and execution of their special day and they have these memories for years to. ...come

Having our wedding at Vadnais Heights Commons helped make our wedding better than we ever could have imagined. Not only is the venue absolutely gorgeous, but the staff is extremely helpful and attentive. Throughout our planning process, any time I had a question, Lorah (the wedding coordinator), was always available to help me out! On the day of our event, the staff was so kind and helpful - I felt like they were part of the family! My husband and I held both our ceremony and reception at VHC and the process of switching the grand ballroom from the ceremony hall into the reception hall was quick and very smooth - once again, this speaks to how wonderful their staff is.

A huge plus to VHC is the recommended vendors that come along with it. I have had so many wedding guests bragging about my DJ (Joe Vruno), how wonderful my food was (True Tastes, Chef Jeff) and how elegant the room decor was (Grand Designs). All of these vendors were recommended to us by VHC and exceeded all expectations! Apart from the inside being stunning, the grounds are beautiful and provide many great places for pictures. Overall, I couldn't have imagined having a better day and it's all thanks to our experience at VHC! It's a GORGEOUS venue and the staff is second to none. I would recommend VHC to anyone planning their special day!

Vadnais Heights Commons was a stunning venue to have both our ceremony and reception. The natural woodwork, architecture, and lighting is unbelievable and immediately caught our attention. As soon as I walked in, I knew this was the venue. The fact that it is a private event center and the ability to put your personal touches on the space also made it that much better.

Lorah is extremely helpful and accommodating. She ensured that everything went smoothly in the planning process and also put out great effort to make sure the wedding day went flawlessly. She is fantastic and invaluable. You won't find a better coordinator.

The only minor issue I ran into was with one of the vendors for decorations. I had inquired about all kinds of different decorating options, but she only wanted to sell me ceiling draping and ignored everything else. In the end, I did not use her for anything and the day was perfect without it! Just a caution to anyone looking into the venue, this preferred vendor is only interested in selling the ceiling draping. (Obviously this is more of a vendor issue than a venue issue, but they are a preferred vendor and are the only ones allowed to do certain things.)

Vadnais Heights Commons responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the wonderful compliments. It is always my goal and our vendors goal to exceed customer expectations. I am so sorry about our preferred vendor and I am thinking there must have been a communication problem somewhere in discussion of needs and wants. Our decor vendor sells chair covers, sashes, centerpieces, cafe lights and drapery. We customize the room for every bride and want the room to take on each bride's personality yet being cognizant of people's budget. Grand Design focuses on selling all of their products as long as a bride specifies what she wants. Grand design takes care of all of our customers whether it be a small order or a large order. I am glad your overall experience was wonderful and that you have some great memories of the experience and the day. Thank you...

This was absolutely the best venue for us and far exceeded our expectations. In addition to it being beautiful, it changes in beauty as the nighttime sets in and the lights from decorations and candles glow with the glass, wood and rock surroundings. Breathtaking in such a natural way!
Lorah Palmer, the planner, organizer and contact person for Vadnais Heights Commons is incredible. She is accessible, organized, upbeat and so helpful. By the time the wedding comes, every detail is outlined and we were able to just enjoy the evening and our guests. Lorah asked such great questions as we planned our reception that we felt confident on the day of the wedding. I am not sure where this woman finds the energy to be kind and gracious everyday, but she does, and we were the happy recipients of her goodness.
We had 260 people at the venue and the guests had plenty of room to socialize and dance. I would pick this venue again in a minute and would love to work with Lorah Palmer again. I would highly recommend Vadnais Heights Commons to anyone who wants a beautiful, excellent place to celebrate a wedding or special event.

We had both our ceremony and reception at VHC. We worked with Lorah, and it couldn't have been a more enjoyable experience. Lorah is so attentive to her clients, and gives them 110% when it's time for your big day. The staff at VHC were professional and accomidating when we wanted to hold our ceremony outside, and had some out-of-the-box requests. While the rental price is a bit steep, you are definately getting what you pay for. They also give you a list of preferred vendors which are the best around.

VHC was the perfect venue for our wedding! The hall was absolutely beautiful and our photographer couldn't get over the perfect sunlight shining through all of the windows! We had about 325 guests and the hall did not look or feel crowded at all! So many guests raved about the beauty, size, and location of the VHC.

Lorah Palmer was wonderful to work with. She was helpful, organized, friendly, and went out of her way to assist us with things that came up along the way! We were very satisfied with our venue and would highly recommend it to anyone!
