The Van Dusen Mansion in Minneapolis is a fantastic place for a wedding, both inside and out. Speaking of being fantastic on the inside and out, Katie & Dan were such an awesome couple to work with. I’m so lucky to be able to shoot with such down-to-earth, genuinely loving couples. Katie & Dan’s wedding reception was one of the most energetic ones that I’ve been a part of. From the moment we entered the space, the dancing, laughing, and singing at the top of the lungs went strong. It was epic indeed.
The Van Dusen Mansion, built in a Richardsonian Romanesque style, offers history, luxury, and classic charm for weddings. The stone mason mastery and the variety of settings & backdrops on the property are just perfect for wedding photography. Nancy Van Dusen, along with her husband George, a prosperous grain dealer, built the estate in 1892, and it remained in the family for decades. It was eventually converted for commercial uses around 1940. The property was later abandoned, and then set to be demolished in 1994. Luckily, a local investor purchased the property two weeks before the looming deadline. The National Register of Historic Places added the Van Dusen Mansion after its extensive restoration. It’s now one of the most luxurious wedding spaces in Minneapolis.
