The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
The KC Hall in Stillwater, Minnesota, is a wedding ceremony and reception site that is appropriate for spring, summer and fall outdoor weddings and for indoor festivities any time of year. The KC Hall is an easily customizable and reasonable wedding venue. The hall includes 4,000 square feet and can accommodate up to 225 of your guests for a seated dinner and a dance. The hall is located north of Highway 36 and is about 25 miles east of Minneapolis and about 30 miles away from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, so it is a convenient venue for your nearby or out-of-town guests to reach.
What You Should Know
On the day of your wedding, you have the hall for the entire day. Nothing may be hung on the walls or from the ceiling. However, if you have ideas for hanging decorations, speak to the staff, as it may be able to accommodate. Your guests benefit from free parking and easy access to the building, which is completely handicap-accessible. The wedding coordinator is on the premises all day, so you and your new spouse can focus on the celebration and guests. If you plan to exchange vows on the premises, an additional fee is required. Before the ceremony, the bride and her attendants have access to the Bridal Room where they can prepare. Marry on the outdoor patio or indoors and then share a cocktail reception with your guests.
You can choose from two different wedding packages or you can select items a la carte in order to save money. All packages, even the a la carte option, includes decoration, use of the kitchen and all dinnerware. The basic Gold Package includes white, black or ivory tablecloths and matching napkins. Other linen colors are available for an additional cost. The Platinum Packages includes white or ivory chair covers and sashes. You may have votive candles on the tables if they’re in fire-safe containers.
The hall features a full bar and the bartenders and all of the alcohol are provided by KC Hall and therefore, no outside alcohol is allowed. Choose from offering a hosted bar or a cash bar. Catering is provided by Scheel’s Catering or you can choose your own, but do discuss this with the event coordinator at the KC Hall first. An additional fee is required if using another caterer. Depending on the type of event you’re having, regulations may require that you hire a security firm. The gold and platinum packages include security. The KC Hall can walk you and your spouse-to-be through all of these details. Additionally, let the event staff know if you would like your event to begin prior to 4 p.m.

Dan and his staff are truly amazing!! My husband and I chose this for our reception site, because we loved the idea of bringing in our own caterer as long as we purchased alcohol/soda from Dan. He was super attentive, detail oriented, and available 24.7. Whenever I had a question I received a response within 24/48 hours sometimes even sooner than that. I would highly recommend Stillwater Weddings @ The KC Hall they are truly amazing and my reception turned out waaaay better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much!!!
What a great venue! We chose it for its parking, handicap accessibility, and allowance of outside caterers. The hall itself is intimate, but was large enough to accommodate our 188 guests. The ceiling drapery and lighting transformed the hall from what seemed like a meeting room into a beautiful banquet hall. The hall manager, Dan, was very helpful and responsive. He took the time to understand what we were looking for, anticipated our needs, and had the resources to fulfill any requests that we had. I would definitely recommend this venue!
Dan was great with having the hall ready for us to be able to go in and decorate. They allowed us to get in early to set up which was very helpful.
