Minnesota Bride Awards 2022

Just like that, another year has flown by. 


Like many others, 2021 was by far our busiest & best season yet! We celebrated so much love with both our 2021 and our postponed 2020 couples. While it challenged us at times, we’ve only become better because of it. We can’t wait to see what 2022 has in store!


Every year, Minnesota Bride Magazine gives couples an opportunity to show their wedding vendors some love and nominate them for "Best Of" in their respective categories. By casting your vote, you can let future couples know who is the best of the best for wedding vendors from hair, photography, DJ, venue and more. 


This is where we ask for your help! We would be honored if you voted for The Van Dusen Mansion and our sister companies in the following categories:


Best Historic Venue: The Van Dusen Mansion

Best Twin Cities Venue: A'BULAE

Best Mansion Venue: Bavaria Downs 

Top of the Tiara: Bellagala

Best Photography: Bellagala

Best Videography: Bellagala

Best DJ: Bellagala

Best Caterer - Small Wedding: Mintahoe Catering 

Best Caterer - Large Wedding: Mintahoe Catering


Why is this award important to us? We’re glad you asked! 


Celebrating the wins from 2021

We are a small, family-owned business that was lucky enough to be a part of over 1,600 couple's wedding day in 2021. Being nominated and winning a “Best Of” award is recognition for all of the people who make it possible to do what we love -- our staff, incredible artists and you, our couples! What better way to celebrate these wins than with another?


Voting ends February 28, 2022.
