Absolutely amazing!! We cannot be happier with our experience working with A’bulae. From the beginning stages of planning all the way to our fairytale wedding day the staff at A’bulae was always there and ready to answer my questions. The day of the wedding all I had to do was hand over my things I wanted set up and they took it from there. A’bulae made our big day stress free and we recommend them one thousand percent!!!! ❤️❤️Sent on 10/16/2020

Great Wedding Venue
Abulae was a great wedding venue! My wife and I are city dwellers and this venue's location, guest capacity, and interior decorating fit us perfectly. Onsite parking was easy to use, the staff were friendly and prompt, and the day-of coordinator helped our wedding go off without a hitch. I highly recommend this venue for anyone getting married!Sent on 11/01/2020

Hi! I’m Hannah Alme.
I have worked for our venues (A’BULAE, The Van Dusen Mansion, & Bavaria Downs) for about four years now and I wouldn’t trade a second of it!
Creating the perfect wedding day is what drives me. At an event, there’s a delicate balance between detail and design that can’t be found very many other places. That balance is what excites me to get up each day and love what I do. From the moment a couple walks in the door of our venue, my goal is to create a calm (but super fun) environment for them. Throughout planning, I take to heart your dreams & vision and help you feel prepared and ready to relax and enjoy your special day. I’d love to help you plan and learn about what makes you two YOU.
My husband and I love to travel and plan to see the world together (all the while, of course, taking cute Instagrams of our adventures!) When we aren’t planning a trip, we hang out at our apartment in Edina, MN and eat way too much take-out. (It’s a problem, for real) Mostly though, my friends and family simply know that if I’m not around, I’m probably somewhere making wedding dreams come true.
I can’t wait to meet you and hear about your love story too! <3

I cannot wait to share in this process as you are considering one of the most premier venues in the Twin Cities! After helping thousands of couples achieve their dream wedding, I can't wait to build that relationship with you helping every step of the process as you “Say YES!” to one of our spaces!
I’m sure what attracted you to our venues was the aesthetic and design our property uniquely offers… but as we chat, I know you will also love the all-inclusive nature of our venue packages. We offer the simplest planning experience, with the best team!
A look into who I am as a person - I’m very big into the dance community. Growing up in Minnetonka, and graduating from the University of St. Thomas, I worked hard to lead my teams as captain and achieved the first four consecutive national titles with St. Thomas Dance Team along my college journey. I knew the moment I graduated, I would go after my dreams of becoming a wedding planner and coaching my Alma Mater team, Minnetonka. When I am not attached at the hip with my work laptop… I love spending time on my paddle board, supporting my boyfriend, Tyson, while he coaches hockey from the stands with a coffee, spending time with family on the lake, and giving a warm hello to every dog in sight -- (your dog is very much welcomed in our virtual tour session!)
A small glimpse into how my couples perceive their planning experience: "Samantha you were an absolute delight to talk to! Thank you so much for all the love and for bearing with my anxiety over dates! You were flexible and deeply understanding and that was very much appreciated!"
