Minnesota Civil Ceremonies & Local Elopements


minneapolis, st. Paul & Metro area: Civil wedding Ceremonies, Local Elopements, "Courthouse Weddings"

& "justice of the peace" style Signature Services for Minnesota Marriage Licenses




















There is not a "Justice of the Peace" service for Weddings in Minnesota.
So why go to the courthouse and wait for a judge?

Our mission is to create a celebratory space for Civil Marriage Ceremonies
and Local Elopements in Minneapolis and St. Paul...

A beautiful alternative to a Courthouse Wedding!

There are a few on site options in the Semple Mansion

the Positively Charmed Office or the Library on the first floor.

Let us create a civil service for you in a way that personalized your marriage ceremony or elopement.

Let's create a spectacular wedding in a day!

This office space (shown above) provides a lovely and intimate option for civil ceremonies. 

There is room for the two of you and two to four guests to witness your wedding!  

Two witnesses are a legal requirement for marriage in Minnesota.

We officiate civil ceremonies in Minneapolis, St. Paul and throughout the Twin Cities Metro area!

Schedule an appointment to come by and see the beautiful space and plan a civil celebration of your marriage!

Another great option is to rent the elegant space of the Library at the Semple Mansion (pictured above) for your ceremony.

The Library is a great choice if you have between six and up to a limit of twelve guests.

Rates for an hour rental of the larger space in the Library begin at $250.

The officiant service fees for the Library are separate; it is $225 for your Civil Ceremony in that space.

We would be happy to contact the office of the Semple Mansion on your behalf,

do keep in mind that weekend availability is very limited according to full venue bookings during wedding season.
