Cedarhurst Historic Country Estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was the summer home of Cordenio Severance, a prominent MN attorney. Cedarhurst has earned a reputation as one of the Twin Cities’ most memorable and refined venues for wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate functions, meetings and social occasions. For more than a century, Cedarhurst has played a leading role in Minnesota’s social and political history by welcoming guests of world prominence including 4 U.S. Presidents (Roosevelt, Harding, Coolidge and Taft) and foreign dignitaries. Cedarhurst has made fantasy weddings a reality for brides and grooms. Whether you are planning an intimate ceremony in our tranquil English gardens, a summer reception in our 100-foot long open-air veranda or an opulent sit-down dinner with dancing in our Cass Gilbert ballroom, your guests will be enchanted with our historic splendor, polished service and superb cuisine. Cedarhurst Mansion is available to host seated dinners for up to 200 guests and a reception with 200+ guests will require a tent.
