Exceeded ALL Expectations!

We are SO grateful for everyone on the Bavaria Downs team for all they did (throughout the planning process and on the big day) to make our wedding such a wonderful experience! The incredible venue and staff were such a huge part of our special day being full of extraordinary memories Jake and I will hold dear for the rest of our lives.
From our first meeting last year, we knew we’d found our perfect place, but we had only a hint of how amazing the Bavaria Downs team would be as we put the pieces together. I can only imagine how stressful the planning (especially in these uncertain and ever-changing times) would’ve been without the kindness, expertise, unwavering support, and fantastic communication we received from everyone we worked with, which was SO greatly appreciated.
Our guests were as in awe of the stunning venue as we’ve been, coming up to us and our parents throughout the event to gush about the house and grounds, and our wedding party was blown away by the next-level getting-ready spaces!
Jake and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day at a lovelier place to celebrate our wedding with our family and friends.

We can not say enough good things about the staff, the location, or the experience we had with our wedding at Edward Anne Estate. The location is breathtaking, with multiple places to hold a petite wedding to cover any weather or other contingency. While time is always short, the staff guided us thru it all without seeming like we were being pushed. And they all worked to help make the day special for all.

Amazing venue

The Edward Anne Estate at Bavaria Downs was everything we could have wanted in a wedding venue and more. When we saw the photos of the estate online we knew it would be beautiful but when we toured it the first time and met the the people and saw everything first hand we knew it was the place for us.
The staff is amazing - from the beginning they are hands on with their couples and provide so many resources for vendors and general questions. They provide a day of coordinator as well which was really helpful leading up to and on the day of the wedding.
On our wedding day we had so many family members comment on how smoothly the Bavaria staff ran the day - they were so competent and it was evident throughout the whole day and evening. At the end of the night we really did feel like everything had gone perfectly and a large part of that was due to Bavaria Downs staff and their organization. Bavaria Downs allowed us to have the most picturesque winter wedding we could have imagined. The estate and ballroom went perfectly with the winter landscapes and we could not be happier with how our photos turned out.

Hi! I’m Hannah Quiggle.
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.

In just a few short weeks, I plan to marry Josh (AKA the man of my dreams). After that, you can plan to call me Mrs. Hannah Alme. We are BEYOND excited for our crisp October wedding day (filled with apple cider, crunchy leaves, and bowling) with our closest by our sides. We 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!"
