Simply Elegant Groups VIP Venues

I got to tour some awesome Twin Cities event venues with Simply Elegant Groups VIP Venues tour. Renee’s Royal Valet took us on a limo ride to the following venues: Day Block Event Center, Town Hall Brewery, Surly Brewing Event Centers, and Solar Arts Building . It was so much fun spending time with a few other wedding vendors while checking out these wonderful spaces.  Day Block Event Center This venue was built in 1883 and renovated in 2006. With it’s high ceilings, wood floors, restored windows, and brick walls, it’s no wonder this has become such a popular venue for weddings, parties, and other events. The Day Block Event Center can hold up to 250 guests and allows hosts to bring in any caterer they want. The main room can even be split up into two rooms for smaller events. They offer chairs and table, on-site management, all-day access, take down and cleaning to help make your event a stress-free day!

Congratulations, Lisa and Will! These two met in high school while volunteering to run the school variety show. A few months later, it was grad party season and Will went to Lisa’s party. After, they drove around together to other friends’ parties. As Lisa puts it, “The rest is history!” 7 years later, Will planned a day full of activities that had nostalgia or significance from their past. Before dinner, the two went for a walk. They sat down on a park bench, and… “I caught Will looking behind me. I turned and saw his brother and our dog coming over with a HUGE bouquet of flowers. Our dog, Lucy, had a special box tied to her collar!” Of course, Lisa said yes!
