    The Perfect Day at the Perfect Venue

    Review from the Bride:
    Its easy to talk about the beauty this venue provides: the massive Bridal and Groom Suites that allows you to not only invite your wedding party but close loved ones to be a part of the day-of activities; the cocktail area that has bright windows looking out into the yard, making guests feel connected even if they are in a different room; the high and lighted ceilings of the ballroom that reflect off the chandeliers and provide the mood you wish for at any moment. This fails to even mention the beauty of the exterior of the building and the beautiful outdoor area they have for the ceremony... from the moment my now husband and I drove up to the venue for the tour we were in awe and never stopped gushing about its beauty or our excitement about saying our "I-dos" and having our loved ones share our day here.

    However, in addition to this, there are the people behind the venue that work hard to ensure a flawless day. And yes, I did just use the word flawless. Meetings are set up to ensure that your vision is incorporated into the day, so the venue becomes uniquely yours. The event manager and all the coordinators are phenomenal and ensure that your vision is set-up on the day of, including any and all small details you wish to include. Throughout the planning process, they respond promptly to e-mails, will set up a phonecall or in-person meeting upon request, and are very timely in responding to any questions or concerns. Going into our wedding day neither myself nor my husband had any worries, only excitement to begin the celebration. Additionally, the valet parking makes it easy for guests to arrive and (weather pending) the add-on of golf cart rides to the ceremony site was extremely helpful for our less-mobile guests.

    The cost of the venue can be seen as expensive, and for our budget, it well exceeded our limit. However, when talking with the coordinator we found that having our wedding on a Thursday not only made the venue less expensive, but allowed it to be within our initial budget. If you want the perfect day I can't recommend this venue enough. If price is an issue, talk with them and see what alternative dates may offer a more affordable cost. We had the most beautiful ceremony, dinner, and reception, with some of the nicest, most helpful people helping us through from the start of the planning process until well after the reception was over. It was worth every penny.

    Stunning venue + amazing staff = dream wedding

    Mark and I looked at several venues before driving down the winding, beautiful driveway of Bavaria Downs, which seemed to transport us out of Minneapolis and to a European countryside. From the outdoor ceremony space with its rolling hills to the luxurious bridal suite/supercool grooms den to the high ceilings in the spacious ballroom, it was unlike any venue we had visited. This place is MAGICAL. Working with Georgia + Melissa prior to the wedding gave us all the confidence that we were in good hands. They asked us questions that never would have crossed our minds and helped iron out every single detail. They also spent time to get to know us and made us feel like part of their family. From the moment we arrived, the whole day went flawlessly in large part due to their help coordinating with all of our vendors (and working exclusively with D’Amico). Nicole spread sparkles and joy in the morning and helped keep us on track. We were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing everyone was so capable and experienced. As the night progressed, Nicole was on top of everything and made us feel so special. Our guests were blown away with this venue and we were so proud to be able to host so many out-of-towners in this beautiful area in Minnesota. Highly, highly recommend!!
