The McNamara staff were terrific to work with. You really know how to do events well. We received numerous comments on the venue and everyone raved about the food. I will strongly suggest McNamara to anyone who is planning a Twin Cities wedding. You are top notch.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at McNamara and I cannot imagine a more perfect venue! We wanted something unique and memorable and we were so pleased. The entire planning process was so seamless. You are truly working with event professionals when you book an event at McNamara. We truly felt like our coordinator’s only client. I highly recommend McNamara for any event, especially weddings!

When searching for a venue for our daughter’s wedding reception, McNamara Alumni Center was the clear answer — interesting and impressive building; good caterer with a strong reputation of serving fine food and beverages in the Twin Cities; good access from throughout the Twin Cities; attached parking; and friendly, helpful staff who answered questions promptly and made suggestions. With that experience in mind, we are looking forward to another family celebration at McNamara Alumni Center this fall!
