Hi, Rev. Coleman!
First, I want to tell you that I love your wedding website, and reviews on wedding reception locations in MN. It is SOOO helpful. We’re thinking of having a wedding reception and ceremony at the James J Hill Library in downtown St Paul, MN. I wanted to know if you knew of any food minimum they have. I know it’s open catering, but I wasn’t sure if the library still had a food and beverage minimum we would need to meet. Thanks for the help and your wonderful website!
James J. Hill Library Bride, Hopefully
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
And thank you so much for your kind compliments! While I don’t know the exact amount of the food/beverage minimum for the James J. Hill Library in Saint Paul, Minnesota – most sites changes their minimum depending on if the wedding is on a Friday, Saturday (most expensive), or Sunday, and also on whether it’s in the Winter, Spring, or Summer/Fall (most expensive),
usually, for a premiere site like the James J. Hill Library, for a summer/fall wedding on a Saturday, food/beverage minimums are usually $10-12K.
Follow-up: I actually found out that there is no minimum because you can choose your caterer – who knew?
I hope this helps!
