Beyond ordinary, extraordinary. The Profile Event Center is a dynamic and exciting setting for wedding receptions, corporate functions, and private events. The stunning Casablanca Hall and Diamond Hall seat 400 and 250 guests, respectively. Conveniently located in the heart of the Twin Cities (just two blocks east of the U of M Campus and TCF Bank Stadium) with easy access to a wide selection of hotels, major freeways, and ample complimentary parking. Both halls feature separate outdoor patios, private bridal suites, hardwood dance floors, gorgeous high tech dance lighting (including fog machines, laser lights, disco balls, and computerized robotic lights), chiffon draping backlit with intelligent lighting for customized reception colors, state of the art sound systems, professional performance stages, digital video projection screens, digital video cameras with closed circuit television functionality, and original modern artwork. Onsite catering creates dinners, buffets, family style, or butler passed appetizers from a variety of American, ethnic, or contemporary dishes, with flexibility to create menus according to your own individualized taste. Hors d’oeuvres to an exquisite multiple course meal, your food will be expertly prepared, beautifully presented and professionally served. The Profile Event Center is known for providing the ultimate event value, producing a visually and sonically stimulating reception where guests have a wonderful time. No one leaves early from a reception at the Profile Event Center!

I just got married at Profile Event Center on October 8th 2017 and my (now) husband(!) and I worked with Sara L. We have been working with her since February and she has been SO helpful. Every time I forgot paperwork or asked her the same question over again just to make sure (for the 2nd or 3rd time) she would happily answer me ASAP. She was amazing on the day of the wedding to make sure everything went perfectly with little reminders and our timeline . She was a blessing for us. We couldn't be happier about how our wedding day went! Sara you are the best!!

My husband and I got married at the Profile Event Center on August 12, 2017 and it was PERFECT! We worked closely with Ashely and Michaela during the whole wedding planning process and they were fantastic. They always made sure to listen to our request and make it a priority to respond in a timely manner. I was glad to work with them and they made our experience very enjoyable. We had our both our ceremony and reception here. To be honest, I was worried the turnover from one to the other would be really hectic, but the staff did an amazing job and made sure everything went smooth by serving hor d'oeuvres to all the guests during that time, which they loved! If you like lighting as much as I do, then this is the venue for you. It really set the tone for our whole wedding and I'm so glad I chose to go with this venue. The decor turned out beautiful and I still can't believe how amazing everything turned out. Plus, the food was delicious and the drink were so so so good! Like I said, I loved everything about this venue and I know you will too!

We loved our experience at The Profile!!!! From start to finish, our coordinator Sarah L was on point. She listened to our needs and made suggestions that were fitting. The wedding day, she didn't skip a beat. The staff made our vision come to life. The set-up was exactly what we discussed. Food was delicious and the wait staff were professional. Since it's an all inclusive venue, clean-up was hassle free. We truly appreciate PEC for making our day phenomenal!!!

For me, it was amazing to have so much information going into the contract. I knew exactly how much my wedding was going to cost me every step of the way. This was so helpful and is truly appreciated. I also really appreciated the full service aspect of the Profile Event Center and that all aspects were HIGH QUALITY. The cake was amazing and I didn't have to find a bakery or make sure it got delivered; the food was amazing and I didn't have to find a caterer; the DJ was amazing and I didn't have to find one myself and make sure they know how to use the equipment, etc. All of this made our wedding go so much more smoothly AND planning so much easier! Overall, we could not have had a better experience and are so happy we chose the Profile Event Center!!

UPDATE: We has our wedding and it was absolutely perfect!!!! Our guests were absolutely blown away by the setting, the food, the music (thanks, Keegan!), and everything went off without a hitch. Our Profile Event Center Wedding Coordinator, Sara, was absolutely spectacular. She was always timely with correspondence and answered all of our questions. Overall, if we could do it all over again, we would pick Profile Event Center!!!! It is THE BEST!!! All of the photos below show things that were done by the Profile Event Center. ———————————————————————- Prior to our engagement in May, I decided that I would pursue my Master's Degree this fall. Once I started searching for venues, I realized that I would not have a lot of time to the grunt work of wedding planning-especially planning the reception! This caused a lot of anxiety. However, that anxiety was relieved after our walk through with Event Coordinator, Patrick. Their straight-forward pricing (everything except taxes can be easily found on their website) and competitive service charges were great! They even get back to me usually within 2 hours. The most I have gone without a response is 12-18 hours! Also, even though their food is a little more expensive than some competitors, their food was AMAZING!!! Seriously, if they had a restaurant, I would go their every day! However, it doesn't stop there! After reviewing the competition, Profile Event Center blew everyone else out of the water with their set up and take-down, on-site florist and caterer, their coordination of DJ, bartender, and security services, a wide variety of decorations to choose from, bridal and groom suite, access to the venue from 10:00a.m. to 3:00a.m. the next day, and checklists (DID I MENTION CHECKLISTS?!)!!! With their I can finally breathe easy knowing that I will have the most stress-free reception of all time! I AM SO EXCITED!!!

Would absolutely recommend the Profile Event Center! The venue is not only amazing, but the staff and amenities they offer are all outstanding. Patrick was our wedding coordinator, and he did a fantastic job. There were no questions left unanswered, and he was always open to answer questions or provide recommendations. One great thing is that they do not just offer cookie-cutter packages. They are willing to work with you to make sure your food, drinks, decorations, etc. are exactly what you need. The food was great. Many people in our wedding party commented on how it was the best spread of food they have had at a wedding. With the attention to detail from a planning perspective on their end, the wedding day was perfect. Patrick was there throughout the whole night to make sure we were 100% satisfied, and if there was anything we wanted or needed that we got. We had a perfect wedding, and a big part of that was due to the Profile Event Center venue and staff. Thank You!

OMG the Profile Event Center was my God sent for my wedding. I couldn't have asked for anything better. They did everything! I have 3 children, work full time and go to school full time so I was anxious about having to plan a wedding on top of that. Profile made everything so easy I didn't even think about the wedding until a few weeks leading up to it. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Sara, our coordinator, was a blessing and so easy to work with. Love love love!

Profile Event Center was the perfect venue for our New Year's Eve reception. Patrick and his team are absolutely amazing to work with. I had so many questions throughout the planning process, and they were always there to provide me with the answers I needed. The all inclusive set up at Profile made our planning process effortless, especially living out of state. From the initial meeting, to the food and cake tasting, to the big day, we could not have asked for a better vendor. Patrick was there with us through it all, making sure every part of our reception ran smoothly. He is truly fantastic at what he does, and I cannot tell you how many compliments we continue to receive from friends and family about how great our reception was. I would absolutely recommend Profile Event Center as a premier venue in the Twin Cities!

We had our ceremony and reception at The Profile and it was amazing. Patrick went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. We had a few things come up and he was very accommodating to our needs. We were on a budget and he still made the site beautiful!! We got so many compliments on the food, decor, service and drinks. Had zero complaints. If I was to do it all over again I would choose this location!!!

The Profile Event Center was amazing! The place was stunning, food was great, and I have nothing but good things to say about the staff. Sara did an incredible job making sure everything on my day was perfect. I had to plan this wedding out of state and she made it as painless as possible. I also want to give our DJ Caleb huge props! Our dance floor was packed all night and many people told me it was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding. It is amazing how much we were able to get with what we spent. Best day of my life :)

We loved working with the Profile Event Center! They helped us every step of the way, and made the entire wedding planning process very easy. They were also accommodating with changes that I wanted to make. The food was phenomenal, and the cupcakes were great as well. Everyone was very professional and helpful the day of our wedding as well.
