Best Venue Ever!
Picking this venue was the best and easiest decision when planning our wedding. Everything fell into place so easily because of the owner, Emily, who is a godsend! Her and her husband-Adam, have worked so hard to make this place a dream!
This venue is absolutely stunning! It literally has everything you could need- the gorgeous barn, the pond, the AMAZING bridal suite, silo bar, etc! There are so many options when determining the layout of your wedding here. Our wedding was October 10, 2020. We chose to have our ceremony outdoors by the pond, cocktail hour by the silo bar/barn which included photo booth, gift table, high tables, with additional seating, and reception in a tent. It was perfect! I loved literally everything about this venue and cannot begin to express how thankful I am to Emily and Adam for allowing us to have our wedding at Belle's Pleasure.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Savannah & Brian!Sent on 01/31/2021

Best Day Ever!
Emily, the owner of Belles Pleasure Farm, saved our wedding. Planning our special day through Covid-19 was extremely difficult and threw us many curve balls. When we had no choice but to find a new venue, Emily was there for us immediately and welcomed us with open arms. Through all of the added stress, being able to have our big day at Belles Pleasure was a complete breath of fresh air. Emily was AMAZING to work with and was there any time we needed to run questions by her. The barn is absolutely beautiful and they are constantly sprucing it up. When I say it’s a perfect white barn, it’s literally a dream. Their entire grounds is breath taking, including their bridal suite. If you are looking for a perfect farm venue with a beautiful barn and owners that consider each bride and groom family, you have found your place! I am so extremely thankful for Emily and her husband. Not only were they amazing to work with, even on our big day making sure everything went perfect, I am lucky enough to now consider them friends.Sent on 11/04/2020
