About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Il Bella Gardens is an elegant wedding venue located in Albemarle, North Carolina. This stylish setting is located just a short 30-minute drive from the city of Charlotte. Surrounded by 20 acres of scenic woodland, couples and their guests can enjoy the sights and sounds of the great outdoors throughout their stay. The gardens are available to host ceremonies and receptions, as well as pre-wedding festivities and rehearsal dinners. Elopements are also welcomed here.

Facilities and Capacity

Il Bella Gardens invites couples to escape from their everyday life. The three different event spaces that are sprinkled throughout the property all act as dreamy backdrops for every aspect of your wedding celebration. To-be-weds can begin the day by preparing in the garden's get-ready rooms. The Il Bella Colonna can seat up to 250 guests and features a romantic open-air pavilion. For a much more intimate gathering, couples are invited to use the Il Bella Villetta. This space can comfortably accommodate up to 75 guests and includes a beautifully enclosed cottage as well as a cobblestone patio. There are also several outdoor locations throughout the property that act as the perfect ceremony location. On-site parking is available for guests who drive here.

Services Offered

Il Bella Gardens offers professional wedding planning services to help couples bring their dream day to life. This coordination assistance is included as a feature in some of the venue's packages. Various rental items are available for use from the venue. These include tables, chairs, centerpieces, and linens. Altars and dance floors can be provided, too. To help those all-important celebratory toasts run smoothly, bar services can be provided by the team here. They are also happy to take care of setup and clean up, leaving to-be-weds free to spend more time with their loved ones. Couples can work from a list of vendors recommended by the staff at the gardens, inspiring their planning for the day. The team offers a shuttle service to help guests be with you on your special day.

Beautiful Venue

Their garden was beautiful! It felt like I was in a fairy tail because the greenery was enchanting! Outdoors space decorated very well along with the ceremony space. Callie and her mom we’re wonderful to work with. Everything in the garden was picturesque and captured the day perfectly. 10/10 would recommend if your looking for a garden wedding not too far from Charlotte.

Storybook magical venue

This venue was absolutely magic. We rented it for the weekend for our wedding, and could not have been happier with the whole experience. Callie and Chrystal are absolutely the best and worked so hard that weekend to make sure everything was perfect for us. They are a well oiled machine, handling our vendors day of, making sure everyone knew where they should be and when, helping get the wedding party down the aisle in the right order at the right time. They had such personalized service, and the venue is stunning. It was absolutely the storybook magical wedding we dreamed it would be. Everything was neat and clean, it all ran on time and professionally. If we could do it all over again, we’d choose them again.
