Professional wedding planning is included in many of our affordable packages.
Il Bella Colonna
Il Bella Gardens features a Romantic open-air columned Pavilion which can seat up to 250 people with a dance floor. Shear drapery between the columns adds an extra touch of elegance. The edged oak ceiling is adorned with ceiling fans for those balmy Southern summer events. While recessed dimmable lighting help to set the ambiance.

The beautiful enclosed cottage can be used for gatherings such as wedding showers, baby showers, rehearsal dinners, business parties and more. Il Bella Villetta can seat up to 75 people inside and on the cobblestone patio. The cottage includes a prep kitchen and bathrooms. What Southern cottage would be complete without a rocking chair porch and many opportunities for story telling!

Our son got married at Il Bella Gardens March 31st and we couldn’t have been more thrilled! We don’t know which was lovelier, the grounds and amenities or the couple that owns it. They had so much to offer in their package and it was such a treat to work with Kim and Larry. We would highly recommend this place to everyone!

Kim was amazing! Not only did the venue have many options as to where my ceremony could be held at but it also had a covered area for the reception that was invaluable. Kim helped plan everything and helped keep everything on schedule the day of. In my opinion she went above and beyond on the day of the wedding. It started raining less than an hour before the ceremony was scheduled to start and she immediately came up with a solution for the ceremony as well as where to put the live band that was originally set up outside. If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with an awesome planner, Il Bella is the place to go!
