The Capitol Room
Event Space




Who we are...

Dan was building his dream photo studio in 2009 when he started dating his future wife, Emily. She was working as a hairstylist and was booked for many of the same weddings that Dan photographed. The two of them often talked about opening up a wedding venue with their knowledge of the industry. In 2012 while planning their own wedding they noticed a lack of unique wedding spaces in the area and began to get serious in planning their own space. Fast-forward to 2017; their plans become reality. With their combined wedding experience and eye for design, the two hope to fulfill the area's need for a truly exceptional wedding and event space.

Dan has been a photographer for 17 years, specializing in weddings for most of that time. Emily has a background in cosmetology and a Bachelor of Science in History. They have two little boys that are the center of their world and they love to throw parties at every chance they get. They are thrilled to be apart of local weddings and events and to be a part of the St. Peter community.
