We would highly recommend this as a wedding venue.

We recently had our cocktail hour and reception at Embassy Suites and everything went great!
We recently moved to the area and wanted a venue who would help us in our planning and that is exactly what we got. We were able to choose a package that fit our needs in addition to adding things a la carte to our reception that were not included in the package. All the vendors we used through Embassy were awesome (DJ, bakery, etc) and made our planning so much easier!
I did make it slightly less than 5 stars only because we noticed a few things did not even get put out that we had described we wanted used and provided to the venue (centerpieces, added decor we had provided) and because there were a few moments during dinner and prior to the dance that just seemed chaotic because of the lack of organization with the staff but this wasn't enough to cause any serious concern and everything still looked great! Also, our coordinator only checked in with us once during the whole evening but again the night turned out great!

We had our reception here, as well as our guest room block for after the wedding. The only negative thing I have to say is that we booked our date a little over a year in advance, and within that year this venue went through 3 different event coordinators. Each time a new person was hired we had to meet with them again to rehash the wedding details that had already been planned. Aside from that, everything else was fantastic! Our guests are still raving about how it was the most fun wedding reception they've been to and how beautiful the ballroom was.
We went with a wedding package that included catering, cake, and the DJ in the pricing. I was a little worried that since we were coordinating it all through the Embassy Suites that we would end up with sub-par vendors for the cake and DJ, but we definitely didn't! The bakery they go through is Buttercream in St. Paul - best cake I have ever tried! And the DJ was from Midwest Sound and he did a fantastic job! Our guests danced the entire time. The food is catered through the Wooley's restaurant on-site and it was amazing - even the vegan meals were delicious. The only limitation with our package was that we could only choose chicken entrees or pay more for something else or to have multiple entree options. We opted to stick with the chicken and our guests still loved it.
Brittany is the final coordinator we ended up working with and she is fantastic! She was completely on board with my vision and was able to set up a lot of the DIY pieces I made for the wedding myself (including centerpieces). She was extremely responsive and helpful, and she also uses some great tools to help you really picture what the room will look like on the big day. There was a slight hiccup with our billing after the wedding and she as also very fast to response and resolve the problem.

In the past 12 months we've been to 4 weddings. The receptions were train wrecks. Bad food and rude staff.... We were really nervous about our reception .
From the moment Brittany took over as a wedding Reception planner we knew it was going to be perfect.
The reception room was beautiful. The staff was so friendly, courteous and outgoing. We encountered absolutely no problems with our reception. Everything exceeded our expectations.
The food was perfect temperature and delicious.
The Midwest sound DJ David was so much fun. I will highly recommend him to others. The bartender was always smiling and happy but that could of been the effects of breathing in the alcohol fumes coming off my guests breath...
Adela was so attentive to my starving wedding party. She was so sweet and friendly.
I can't say enough positive things about Shannon. She was so attentive and went over and beyond her job duties. She's in a high stress situation but she always had a smile on her face, spoke nicely to everyone. She was so happy and friendly .
I was so impressed with your staff. I just want to make sure all of them know that. My guests said all the servers were friendly and pleasant.
I will be recommending your services to our friends that are getting married and/or hosting events.
Thank you so much for exceeding our expectations and making our reception perfect. I wouldn't change a thing.
Best Catering Experience Ever!!!

My bride, Sarah and I used Craft Catering's services on our wedding day and we were absolutely blown away at the level of their quality professionalism and the AMAZING dining experience that was provided! David Breen and his staff were all prompt, kind, easy to work with, and accommodating in every way! The food was prepared and delivered with style and in a timely manner. My wife and I had more compliments on the food that on anything else at our wedding, and we had a very decorated wedding! Our experience was like something from an elegant fairy tale. I highly recommend Craft Catering to anyone looking to have a magical experience like ours! They are easy to work with and pay very close attention to detail. Feel free to contact me for a personal testimony of my experience with this company and I contact them for more information on the events they cater. Thank you Craft Catering! We wouldn't have chosen anyone else for our catering needs!
Embassy Suites Minneapolis Airport made the impossible - possible!

My (now) husband and I decided to have our wedding the day after Christmas. My husband is active duty military and a Christmas wedding was the only option for him to get time off. I was nervous that planning a wedding around a major holiday and in the depths of Minnesota winter was going to be next to impossible. I could not have been luckier to work with the wedding coordinator Brittany Cekalla. She was incredibly accommodating and easy to get in contact with via email or telephone. I chose a package at the Embassy where Brittany pretty much coordinated all aspects of the reception for us - the set-up, table decor, food, DJ, drinks, late night snack (Chicago-style hot dogs), and tear down. Brittany was also full of suggestions on vendors for photography, limo service, and flowers. We actually went with all the vendors she suggested and were incredibly pleased. One really nice aspect of having the wedding at the Embassy Suites was the ability to bring in our own wine (and only have to pay a small corkage fee). Our guests were extremely comfortable all night and it was really nice to have the reception right at the hotel where they stayed. We could not be more thankful to Brittany and the Embassy Suites management and staff for helping make our wedding day so wonderful.
I highly recommend!

I had a wonderful experience working with all of the staff at the Embassy Suites. Even though they were in transition during the preparation time for my wedding, they were all on top of it and did a great job keeping in touch with me. They helped make my reception beautiful and very memorable.
Simply the best

Craft Catering catered my wedding, and they are amazing! The food is delicious, and the staff is all so nice! Everyone went out of their way to make our day perfect!

From the first meeting to the first tasting through the end of the wedding day, Craft was very, VERY accommodating and so easy to work with! We wanted a unique blend of veggies (had not previously been done), and they happily created our request for a second tasting. We had an outdoor wedding which could pose complications as far as catering goes. I am super happy to say that the food was amazing and many of our guests complimented on it! To prepare and present amazing food was not an issue for Craft! They were so efficient and (again), the food was fantastic!!! I would highly recommend Craft Catering as they exceeded our every wish!!
