So you're starting the wedding planning process, but where do you start? We've got a saying around here, once you find your wedding venue everything else falls into place. And it's so true! Your wedding venue sets the stage for all other aspects of your wedding, including the grand total. Some venues may appeal nicely to your budget, while others check all the marks on your dream list. Luckily, Bellagala owns three incredible properties in the Minneapolis area, and each has unique venue packages. With these amazing packages, you won't have to sacrifice on anything!
Our Three Properties
Bellagala owns three wedding venues; A’BULAE, Bavaria Downs, and The Van Dusen Mansion. Each space has a unique style, and offers all three of the packages mentioned in this blog. But first, let’s chat about the venues!
A’BULAE is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, with stunning rooftop views. A’BULAE is a modern, SoHo-style loft space that was specifically created for events.
Bavaria Downs is located in Chaska, Minnesota. This European inspired venue sits on 270 acres, creating a destination wedding feel, without having to leave the state of Minnesota.
The Van Dusen Mansion is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This historic mansion is full of character and rich history. The castle-style mansion gives a fairytale feel, and the private courtyard is a true hidden gem in the heart of the city.
We promise you don’t want to miss out on these gorgeous spaces! But what really makes our spaces so special are the packages we offer.
