The Lumber Exchange Center is the oldest building in downtown Minneapolis. It is right in the heart of downtown and has beautiful architectural features. If that classic downtown vibe is for you, you will want to check out this stunning Lumber Exchange Center wedding!
The Fountain Room is nine stories tall and features exposed brick walls and a huge water feature to use as your ceremony backdrop. This space is also used for the dinner and dancing portion of the wedding. The attached River Room is a cozy space for cocktail hour, and also has a getting ready space. There is a second getting ready space just a few floors below with a pool table and beautiful, bright lighting. Having a wedding in these spaces means you can invite up two 280 people for dinner! This room was where Connie and Taysir chose to have their wedding, and I’m so glad they did.
One of the most iconic spots at the Lumber Exchange Center is the white marble staircase on the first floor. This is where Connie & Taysir choose to do their first look! We also used this space for family photos and wedding party photos. It is a great backdrop to have on hand throughout the day. One of my favorite moments from Connie & Taysir’s first look was when Connie showed off her “something blue” tongue piercing! We also made some time to venture up to the rooftop of the parking garage. This is an area only accessible for couples on their wedding day, and it is stunning for skyline photos!
