LUMA Luxury Matchmaking (by April Davis)

April Davis

Previously named “Cupid’s Cronies,” LUMA was founded in 2010 and has since expanded to include 40 offices in 17 states. The home office is just west of Minneapolis in St. Louis Park.

Cost & Contract

$2,800 - $100,000 for a 6-month membership, with a one-time option for pausing your service for one month.


LUMA’s services are designed for busy “professionals, executives and millionaires” who are looking for a serious relationship. Most clients are in their late 20s to 60s.

What To Expect

A boutique matchmaking service founded by April Davis, LUMA's matchmakers only work with a limited number of clients - often around 15 - at a time.

Prospective clients can join the database for free, but that doesn't come with any proactive matchmaking services. Singles in the database only get chosen if they happen to meet a client's criteria.

As with most elite dating agencies, the process starts with an initial screening interview. During this talk, you’ll decide if LUMA is the right Minneapolis matchmaker for you (and vice versa).

If you decide to join, you’ll sign the contract and discuss the particulars of your membership package. Factors include the scope of your search, the personality traits and physical characteristics that you're looking for in a match, etc.

You’ll then be matched with members in LUMA’s database. If you opted to pay for the additional “Personal Search” option, you'll also be matched with singles either scouted by your matchmaker or identified as a potential match through LUMA’s extended network.

Dates take place either in person or via video call, After each one, both halves of the match call the matchmaker with feedback. This gives you the chance to get any pertinent feedback on how the introduction went. If you and your match feel like you clicked, you need to exchange contact info during the date.

LUMA Matchmaking offers additional services such as dating coaching, an informational interview where your matchmaker has the opportunity to learn more about you, and personal styling consultations.

Matchmaking packages can include a local, national or international search, with the price going up accordingly. Each client gets a customized search, so the cost of your particular package depends on all the factors discussed during your assessment.

Serious Matchmaking (by Janis & Carly Spindel)

Serious Matchmaking

One of New York City's millionaire matchmakers, Janis Spindel has been a professional matchmaker since 1993. Serious Matchmaking has a presence in the Twin Cities area along with several other major cities around the US.

These elite matchmakers generally only work with men as paying clients. Women can join the database for $250, but must first pass the rigorous screening process.

If both you and your matchmaker decide the service is a good fit, you can expect to meet at least one match each month for the duration of your contract. The scope of the search and other details vary according to the details of your contract.

You'll either meet matches pulled from the Serious Matchmaking database or introduced to women the matchmaking team scouts on your behalf.
