With its European aesthetic, Bavaria Downs is one of the Twin Cities’ most popular wedding venues. Now the luxury establishment in the west metro has added a new venue to its grounds: Equestria West.
While maintaining that European air, the new addition has an equestrian twist, and employs organic materials such as copper, leather, stone and wood. Located in Chaska about 25 minutes from the Twin Cities it’s what Kayla Unmacht, a representative of Equestria West, calls “a getaway without going away.”
Equestria West plans to host only one event per day, giving couples the option of two ballrooms and two outdoor ceremony sites. Capacity ranges from 50 to 400, perfect for any size wedding. There are also designated getting-ready rooms for brides and grooms.
But don’t wait to reserve your date. Unmacht says that for a Saturday wedding, 18 months out is best. There are also specific packages designed for couples who have a shorter time frame. @bavaria_downs
