Located in the heart of historic Old Town of Stokesdale, the Bella Collina Mansion, invites you to come and experience true Old World-era romance. The Bella Collina Mansion is available on a limited basis to groups up to 175 in size for weddings, receptions and other special events.
We would be honored if you would consider us to be a part of your very special day. We feel we are the perfect venue choice for starting married life in elegance. When you choose to say your vows and/or celebrate your wedding reception at The Bella Collina Mansion, you are making a statement... "Start with perfection and don't settle for less." It is a magical place to begin your new life together.
Once engaged, most couples start their wedding plans by choosing their perfect venue. We understand that this is often the most important decision to embark upon. We have found that most brides today live a very active life, so we have taken the guesswork out of planning your wedding. The average bride who books everything herself will spend between $15,000 to $25,000+ for her wedding. Based on her active lifestyle she has a limited amount of time to properly interview her vendors, hence giving her the wedding she "settled" for, instead of the dream wedding that she deserves. We have done away with the mediocre wedding by putting together our dream packages. We start with the mansion and add our expert caterers, florists, photographers, videographers, and DJs, who are all held to our highest standards.
Our philosophy is simple since so many brides come to us in hopes of making the wedding experience simple yet elegant. We have been asked on numerous occasions if we could recommend vendors that we trust so they may have their perfect wedding. We've done one better. Not only have we found the perfect, most experienced vendors, we have also negotiated with them our exclusive pricing based on our volume. We pass these savings on to you in our "all-inclusive" packages. We not only ensure perfection, but offer a money back guarantee (you will receive your certificate at your closing). Put us to the test and put your mind to rest! We have wrapped most everything you will need into a package.
Our wedding packages for up to 100 guests include the following:
This spectacular package starts at under ten thousand dollars. If you have more than 100 guests, that’s great too! We can accommodate up to 175 guests in the home and will discuss pricing for additional catering and rentals together. We are sure you will find this package not only includes what you will need to have your dream wedding and/or reception, but it will afford you the time to focus on the personal details, invitations, accommodations for out-of-town guests, attendants' gifts, centerpieces, your wedding cake, and the wedding dress you have imagined from the time you were a little girl.
We would be happy to schedule an appointment for you to tour our impressive mansion. After your tour, we'll sit down and discuss other, even more elegant packages and options.

All-Inclusive Fairytale Wedding
Bella Collina Mansion is hands down the best venue to host your wedding! It’s all inclusive, so that’s already an advantage. What we paid for our wedding is what some venues have the nerve to charge just to rent the building. We didn’t have to go looking for vendors, because Bella already had the best vendors working directly with them. It’s a one stop shop, and well worth it.Sent on 11/20/2019
When we first reached out to them, they responded promptly and answered every one of my 1,000 questions with a smile on their face. Upon our first arrival to the venue, goosebumps went down our spine. The house is immaculate. We met the entire staff and vendors, all of them treating us as if they’ve know us our whole life. You feel the love as soon as you walk through the 12 foot doors!
On the wedding day, they’re by your side each and every step talking you through what to do next and answering any questions you may have. Trust me, you’ll have more questions than you could ever imagine. They’re so calm during all of this, which you end up feeding off of. I went from nervous and not knowing what to do next to calm and confident in my next move. I wouldn’t have been able to survive my own wedding day without them. My parents even want to renew their vows there and both my best man and 12 year old nephew want to only get married at Bella. Yes, this perfect venue made my 12 year old nephew think about marriage rather than batman. Truly amazing.
I highly suggest the boat ride for the groomsmen the morning of the wedding. It costs a little extra, but we had a blast playing in the water at 11am and it distracted our minds on the big fact that it’s a major wedding about to occur shortly after. Before the boat ride we were all uptight, but after we were so relaxed as if we were back at home in the basement on a Sunday shooting pool and watching football. I also did a boat departure after the wedding, which was epic!
A couple of days after our wedding night, my wife realized she couldn’t find a custom gift that she treasured so much. She reached out to Bella, who reviewed the camera footage of where she had it last, and then told us to check a certain spot in a particular plastic bag. Sure enough, it was there! Do you know how much camera footage you have to go through to find such a little gift?! I feel like I owe them all a steak dinner just for that kind gesture because my wife was in tears looking for this. They literally go above and beyond for you, treating your wedding as if it’s there own.
My wife and I have a list of over 150 names that we would name our first child, even our first dog. Bella was never on the list. After experiencing the perfect wedding from start to finish hosted by Bella Collina, we both agreed that if we have a daughter, her name is going to be Bella. That right there goes to show what type of venue this is, how warming and welcoming the Bella Collina family is, and most importantly, how perfect the most important day of our life went.
Thanks again Bella. We will forever be in debt to you!

Told repeatedly it was the best wedding our guests have ever been to
Joe and Erin nailed it. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical of all of the 5-star reviews and people saying their guests thought it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. It’s the biggest party you’ll ever throw and you don’t have any experience in throwing it. Wedding planning is a stressful experience, but take comfort in knowing that Joe and Erin have done this hundreds of times. They know how to throw this party and ours went off without a hitch (well, except for us actually getting hitched!). From the time I showed up that morning, everything was going on behind the scenes and they only needed me for a couple of things right after I walked in the door. I wasn’t interrupted the rest of the morning. I’m an over-planner and even though the evening didn’t go in order of my schedule, such are weddings and the order of how things actually went was probably better than what I had planned. Joe and Erin’s responsiveness during the whole planning process was impressive. I would always get a response within a couple of hours during the weekdays. Their “day of interviews” process is also great. You get all your major vendors booked over the course of an afternoon! Joe oversaw the whole wedding and orchestrated it perfectly. Our guests were so impressed by the scenery as it really is a decoration in and of itself. Thank you, thank you, Joe and Erin! Take it from a former skeptic, save yourself the hassle of taking time off of work over several weeks to meet with vendors and trying to negotiate contracts, and save yourself the stress of coordinating all on your own and just book! I hope your day will be as beautiful as ours was on 11/2/19.Sent on 11/23/2019

What Dreams Are Made Of
Joe, Erin, and their team are everything you would hope for in a wedding venue! They were very responsive with any question we had and made the entire process super easy for us by making sure we had every last detail covered. If something went wrong on the wedding day, I definitely did not know. They handle everything down to the wire so that the bride and groom do not have to worry about it the day of. Plus the venue is just beautiful, what more could you ask for besides a mansion on a lake! My wedding day was everything I dreamed of and it was made possible by this team and venue.Sent on 10/19/2019
True professional from start to finish. The staff at Bella makes certain that their couples are treated with love, care and respect from the first meeting to the final send off! Each professional that works at Bella has been carefully vetted and chosen. We feel very fortunate to perform ceremonies at Bella Collina. We know that all the staff has the best interest of the couple at heart and will do what is necessary to give the couple the wedding of their dreams. This is one of our very favorite places to perform ceremonies.
