    Accommodating and Flexible!

    My husband and I had a very positive experience with Brian at the Bella Room and Jameson's Irish Bar. Our wedding was October 2020. Our previous vender pulled out on us last minute and luckily Brian (also owns Brie Catering) was already our caterer at the previous venue. Brian came through for us and was willing to host our whole wedding at his newly remodeled establishment called Jameson's Irish Bar. The Bella Room was the perfect spot for the ceremony and the dance floor. We had 35 people for our ceremony and could easily hold more. The space was intimate and beautiful. We did catering in house with Brian and had family members say it was the best wedding meal they have ever had. For the reception we had more people come and the four rooms of Jameson's Irish Bar flowed perfectly and there was plenty of space. Brian's staff was truly amazing to work with and they were genuinely happy to be with us on our wedding day. It also had a great location located so close to Harriet Island and the Ford bridge where we did our wedding and sunset photos. Overall we had a great experience and are very grateful for Brian, his staff, and Jameson's Irish Bar for putting together an amazing wedding!
