St. Paul Wedding Venue - Germanic-American Institute Gay Friendly: Gay Wedding Event Location in St. Paul, MN, USA

The Germanic-American Institute (GAI) "Haus", at 301 Summit Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota, may be rented for weddings and other events, and we welcome same sex couples. Our historic 107 year-old mansion features:
  • Three intimate dining rooms on the main floor
  • Breathtaking grand staircase
  • Authentic German Ratskeller with bar in the lower level
  • Spacious ballroom with auxiliary bar on the third floor
  • On-site parking lot
  • Award-winning lawn and flower gardens
Since the 1960s, the mansion has served as the home of the Germanic-American Institute. The Germanic-American Institute has been an ideal location for couples looking for a charming and romantic wedding venue for over 40 years.

Our beautiful, lush lawn with a spectacular array of blooming flowers is the perfect setting for an outside ceremony. In case of inclement weather, or if you would simply prefer to be indoors, ceremony can be moved inside. Receptions may also be held either indoors or outdoors.

Our catering service offers a variety of European and American specialties and is highly individualized. Whether you want to include light appetizers or a multi-course dinner with your reception, we work with you to create a meal tailored for your event. Options for every budget are provided.

The Haus' capacity is approximately 200 for a plated or buffet-style dinner, depending on which rooms you choose for seating. The rental covers use of all public spaces including the Ratskeller, ballroom, and outside grounds. While we do not have an elevator, we can set up a ramp outside for access to the mail floor of the Haus.

We are thrilled that Minnesota finally allows same sex couples to marry, and would love to work with the two of you to plan the perfect wedding day.
