Do not book⠦music above normal conversation levels not allowed


RECENT EXPERIENCE 10/7/2023

I can only speak with sadness, regret and more than a little anger about my experiences with Bellavue Estates. I really wish I had read through all the reviews before spending 14,000 on a venue that tried to ruin my wedding and reception.

Diving right into the facts:

The contract that we signed was explicit that noise needs to shut off promptly at 9pm. No problem, that’s reasonable enough. No rules about the levels of noise before 9pm or anything of the sort. The contract also did not disclose that anyone else would be living on property during the time that we would be leasing it.

The day that we checked in, Jim (the proprietor) told us that there were additional rules that were NOT in the contract we signed. A “surprise” if you will, that the decibel level was not to exceed 50 decibels at any point. Just for reference, here is a chart explaining decibel levels (you can fact check this)

whisper 30 dB
Average room noise 50 dB
normal conversation 60 dB
Average office noise 70 dB
Hairdryer 90dB
motorcycle engine running 95 dB.

So, as we can see from the chart, 50 decibels falls into the normal conversation/room noise level.

Ok so fast forward to the actual wedding. The ceremony started at 4pm, with soft cocktail hour music and a little louder entrance music. Almost immediately, Jim (who has been living on property the entire time since we checked in and had not left) started texting our DJ that it’s too loud and he needs to turn the mics and the music down. Our guests couldn’t even hear our vows, or the entrance music.

He then continues to text the DJ during pictures, dinner, then finally I decide to go up to the “office” where apparently him and his wife live (I repeat, they did not leave the entire time) and I let him know we are about to kick off the dancing and I paid to throw a party here not a funeral. He is literally sitting in a dark bedroom, with a decibel meter in his hand watching us out of the window. I was incredibly creeped out at that point, told him to stop harassing my DJ and went back to the party.

Yup you guessed it he continued to text throughout the reception, around 13 text messages later it was 9pm and we wrapped it up at that point per our contract.

There were other strange things happening, like four friends went outside of the house to smoke after 10pm and he immediately walked up with a headlamp and told them they weren’t allowed to be outside talking. There was also LDS paraphernalia in every room of the house, if you want to subscribe to a religion that’s fine but don’t force it down your guests throats, it’s just weird and desperate.

I will mention here that we had a very diverse crew with us, not sure if that played a role in our experience but knowing how these proprietors operate wouldn’t be at all surprised.

It’s a real shame because it has the potential to be a really great venue, however the owners Jim and Jen completely ruin the experience. Would not recommend to anyone who wants to have a good time at their wedding without some creepy guy watching them from a window with a decibel meter.

Hi, I’m Jen and married to my sweet love Jim. I love mother nature and all things non-traditional. I’m a big feeler. I feel things very deeply and appreciate anything that you can pull at my heart strings. I would say Jim is the more strong, silent type? But don’t let that fool ya. His heart is about as tender & smooshy as it gets and I’m thinking he must be an animal and baby whisperer because all things cute & cuddly have this magnetic pull right into his arms. Everyone feels safe and secure and taken care of when he’s around. We would love to get to know you and we'd be honored to host your most special day!
