We just had our wedding at Kellerman’s last weekend and it’s safe to say it was beyond perfect. Kristin was our main go-to as our wedding coordinator and she made the experience flawless. Even the photographer and DJ commented on how organized and thorough she was and how she... Read More made their jobs easy. She helped us be as prepared and organized as we could be to allow for a smooth, STRESS FREE day! Truly, the only thing that went wrong was the groom’s button popping off of his jacket (which Kristin quickly fixed). The venue speaks for itself; it is so gorgeous, and this was the first thing most of my guests said. It is whimsical and beautifully maintained. The ceiling, the garden, the craftsmanship… not to mention the awesome men’s bathroom (this might sound weird but check it out!), vintage-style bridal suite and new rooftop patio! To top it off, the amount of décor we needed to bring was minimal as the room is beautiful even when empty. I would recommend Kellerman’s Event Center a thousand times over!

Kristin was so wonderful to work with - even though we live in Kansas City, she was always available to answer questions via text or email and was always able to make time to see us when we were in town ahead of the wedding.

You've really got to visit the space to experience it - so charming and beautiful and interesting (even the rooms for the bride/groom and their parties), it was absolutely right for us.

We married at Kellerman’s on March 11, 2016 (I know we’re a little delayed - hehe)! The look of Kellerman’s alone sealed the deal for us, but then you add the amazing and caring staff…we were blown away! Kristin, Terry and everyone made our entire experience amazing. We felt... Read More like the only couple to have ever stepped foot in the building. Pre to post wedding, we were impressed. A champagne toast to kick off our planning, a fun wine tasting, every ask/detail being met or exceeded in expectations, bringing out my husbands “special chair” that he was obsessed with for the garter toss, and a thoughtful gift after the wedding, it was all magic! It sounds entirely corny, but honestly it’s the truth — magic. Kristin is a STELLAR event planner and made sure everything went perfectly. She made the decision making process for the biggest and most nerve-wracking part of our wedding (venue/bar,etc), easy to navigate and whip together. As the bride, with so much planning and effort going into the day, I told myself not to let mishaps get in the way of enjoying. My prep talk was unnecessary, Kristin and the staff had us covered. If anything went wrong or not as planned, we never knew it. Kellerman’s had a list of preferred vendors (like most), but the caliber of the vendors they recommended were top-notch and it was a no brainer for us to go with them. Donatelli’s and Matt from Matt’s Photobooth Creations, were absolute joys to work with and succeeded in customer service and sincerity. Last, the space is simply gorgeous, so unique and well functioning. Our guests still bring up our wedding to date. We love that we can go back to the bar or brewery to celebrate our anniversary, or reminisce any time we’d like. Thank you Kristin, Terry and everyone for literally, the best day we could’ve asked for! With Love, John & Stephanie Poferl

The venue was beautiful and had more than you could imagine. The owner was great and walked my husband and I through the place talking about what he built. The only issue we ran into was the limitations of what you can do. Much of the items in a wedding need to be by an approved... Read More vendor, so make sure your ok with that in a venue. Overall we had no hiccups the day of and had so many compliments. Many thought Amy, our day of planner from the venue, was on it. Guests loved that she made sure everyone was informed of what was going on and how much time until the next main event. If you bring in your own decor, make sure to leave time to setup/tear down. That comes out of your time. Also chair covers are a must as the ones they provide are too dark, unless your using dark colors for a wedding.

Kellermans was truly an exceptional wedding venue. There are so many things that my husband and I appreciated and enjoyed about this beautiful, vintage event center. 1. Kristin is an exceptional wedding planner. She was on top of every detail! She made us feel like she was... Read More part of our family, she was THAT good. 2. The center itself is stunning. The different places for guests to linger included the craft brewery downstairs, the garden area outside the center, the Alchemist bar, the gorgeous patio on the second floor, the cool old bar where guests could enjoy each other while the reception area was being set, and the main area where the wedding and reception took place was filled with old charm and incredible craftsmanship by the owner. Every single guest who talked to us said they were simply wowed by this wedding venue. (and we have all been to many weddings...) 3. Our new daughter-in-law felt like she could stop by and talk to Kristin prior to the wedding and Kristin was simply "all over everything." I think we have a new family member and her name is Kristin! 4. The dance floor had great space. 5. While the wedding party was having photos many of our guests said they loved having choices of various places to get a beverage and enjoy the center prior to the reception. 6. We just got some photos back last night and this place photographs like nothing else! The garden was a beautiful backdrop for photos and the photographer, Becky, utilized every single area! We are truly speechless about how this place set up the bride and groom and wedding party for photos. Simply stunning. 7. The bridal room was so vintage and cool...it was this secret place for the girls to get ready and it had a bathroom, great lighting and mirrors. 8. The groomsmen had a hard time coming out of their cool room for getting ready. It came complete with fur pelts, a pool table and unbelievable antiques that furnished the spot. My husband and I were thrilled with every detail of the our experience with Kellermans. We would highly recommend this spot for any bride and groom looking for a unique and vintage old-world charm.

The atmosphere including the open ceiling with cafe lighting, exposed brick walls, and antique touches make for a venue that requires very little extra decorating which we loved!

Um, did we just throw the Wedding of the Year!? AMBIANCE. CHARM. PERFECTION...THIS. We wanted to throw A ONE-OF-A-KIND-NEVER-TO-FORGET CELEBRATION for ourselves & our people. And I mean, I knew Kellerman's was special. But, wow. My first impression of Kellerman's was early... Read More summer 2016 while strolling through downtown White Bear Lake. I wasn't intentionally 'looking' for a wedding venue then but as we pass in front my mother says, "Annie. Have you ever been in here? No? Come on, let's just take a peek. It's really cool." In hindsight I realize it must be a common occurrence for Kristin and Lorah (your future event coordinators) to see such facial expressions at the top of the stairwell like the one I was wearing that day - as if I was delighting in some yummy takeout on my couch when suddenly the ceiling opens up, angels sing, and glorious fireworks go off overhead. Kellerman’s evokes some Once Upon a Dream-Disney Princess-Game of Thrones meets Downton Abbey- NOSTALGIA. I was looking no further. I said, "This." It still gives me tickley butterflies inside when I recall entering Kellerman's on our wedding day! And our guests...I saw that same look of wonder and awe (and “this is gonna be a good night!”) on their faces during our social hour. This place is auto-awesome so I knew they’d enjoy themselves - but the reaction has been far more than that! Our wedding was on Friday, Dec. 30, 2016. I'm telling you...DAILY we get messages - emails, texts, FB messages, even cards in the mail! - from guests far and wide who joined us at our Kellerman's wedding who are like, "I just have have to tell you - that was THE BEST wedding I think I've ever been to." They say how the marriage and food and celebration was amazing, but go on and on about the one-of-a-kind look and feel of the hall - from to the gorgeous bordering alley, to the restrooms, the windows, the walls, the built-in vibe, and the staff they met while there. It's been just one week since and I could already name 7 people who’ve said they’d “definitely have or would’ve had” their wedding at Kellerman’s Event Center. Lorah, Kristin, and Terry Kellerman (he was there helping too!) - Thank You. I just cannot say enough about your hospitality and planning help. You took our ideas, our budget, and some special circumstances and you made it happen - we know you you went above and beyond. I just can’t say enough how grateful we all are. I should mention that we hosted both the ceremony and reception there. If you want to create a great vibe for your guests, try having a social hour first in this beautiful place with music in background! We played a 1hr Downton Abbey Suite. It was a hit! Make it unforgettable! Kellerman’s has got to be on the top of your venue hunt list. You probably won't go anywhere else! It's a very special place with remarkable event coordinators all in one. I cannot recommend it enough.

We had such a wonderful experience with Kellerman's Event Center! The location in downtown White Bear Lake is beautiful with it's main street views and proximity to the lake for photos. Kellerman's is wonderfully unique inside but is also not over priced which is exactly what we... Read More were looking for. We booked the venue in August of 2015 and our wedding was in October of 2016. We had both the ceremony and reception there. Some of the older reviews have outdated information as they've made changes since they first started holding weddings. The lights hanging from the ceiling are included in the rental price. They don't allow drinks on the dance floor but I actually really liked this. It was wonderful to dance without my shoes on and keep my dress from dragging through spilled liquid. And they were very nice about it. I didn't hear any negative comments from our guests about this. Kristin is AMAZING. I can't describe how impressed with and thankful for her we are. She made sure EVERYTHING ran smoothly. She got us set up with how much we needed at the bar and making sure that ran well. She was there from the beginning of the day setting up all of the decorations to the very end of the night getting all of our decorations and items loaded into boxes and ready to go. She made sure all of our vendors (flowers, DJ, bakery, minister, caterer) and wedding party knew where to go and made sure everything ran on schedule. Whenever any of our favors were out, she would replace them. Whenever we ran out of donuts (instead of cake), she refilled them. A little girl at our ceremony accidently kicked over and broke a mason jar in the middle of our ceremony. Kristin was there waiting until the right moment when music was playing to sweep up the mess so the noise wasn't as noticeable and no one got injured walking back down the aisle. I sent a number of questions to her via e-mail during the few weeks prior to the wedding and she was so great at answering all of them. We didn't worry about a thing the day of or during the ceremony rehearsal and that was priceless. And she was so nice and personable! We loved working with her and can't say enough nice things about her and her work! The unique setting of Kellerman's is so impressive. Our guests loved the location. The antique items that have been restored are beautiful and fun. And the "store fronts" in the reception hall are so fun and unique! The men's bathroom in the reception hall is awesome. Kellerman's gave us a list of preferred vendors when we first booked Kellerman's. We went with a caterer, DJ and hotels from their list and were so pleased with all. They list which hotels have shuttles available to and from Kellerman's which we used and they worked so well. I very highly recommend Kellerman's Event Center for your wedding reception, ceremony or both. It was beautiful and we had the best day there. We'll forever have fond memories of this venue.
