One of the best weekends of our lives. Used this beautiful venue for rehearsal, bridal party sleepover, and wedding ceremony and reception. Wonderful on site catering and Tammy, the Events coordinator took care of everything and I mean EVERYTHING on Wedding day. She made it possible for us to be in the moment the whole time and took care of every tiny detail. This is a beautiful venue and the staff is exceptional. Price is very inclusive and worth every penny.

I am so happy my family and I decided to have mine and my now husband's wedding at Belle Grove! The beauty of the venue goes without saying, so let me talk about their professionalism and efficiency. Being the planner, type A personality that I am, I was worried that I would have a problem stepping back and letting Tammy Anderson (their event coordinator) and staff manage our special day. Never once did I feel as though I needed to step in and handle a situation. Their confidence and experience with weddings was such a relief and allowed me to simply enjoy my wedding day without fear of something going wrong. They worked closely with all the vendors and had continuous communication to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. The amount of respect they have for those investing their money at their establishment is evident. Thank you so much Belle Grove for making our day just perfect and everything I hoped it could be & more!
