  • Magical! Our wedding (regardless of covid) was a dream! From the staff to the venue, I couldn't have imaged a better place to get married. Helpful, efficient, attentive, I could go on and on. The venue itself was immaculate when we arrived and really was a private sanctuary just for us and our loved ones to celebrate. We dealt with a lot of changes and restrictions with covid and even working through the alterations, the team at Bavaria and D'Amicos really made all our worries go out the window! Thank you, Bavaria and D'Amicos for making our wedding day a dream come true and a Special thank you to Amanda, Moriah, Hannah Q and Hannah S for being so knowledgable, helpful, and kind throughout the enitre process and our wedding day! We will have the most beautiful memories of our wedding for the rest of our lives!
