The Most Perfect Venue
My now husband and I got married at La Bella Vista on October 10th. When we arrived a year and a half prior to tour the venue, we were so impressed with the property and all of the food options that were presented to us. We worked very closely with Todd and Andrew leading up to our wedding. They were both so easy to work with and so responsive. Even with everything going on due to the pandemic, they were responsive and did whatever we needed to make sure that we could have the wedding of our dreams. On the day of the wedding every single staff member that we came into contact with was beyond kind and helpful. Trish was our maitre d' on the day of our wedding and was fantastic. She went out of her way to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. Even though I was not feeling my best due to my nerves getting the best of me, Trish and the entire staff continued to check on me throughout the night to make sure I was okay. Our guests were so impressed with everything. We have received so many compliments regarding how they were treated, the service, and of course the ample amount of food that was provided throughout the night. One key thing our guests loved was that even though they were so full from the delicious food, that La Bella Vista provided to-go containers. Our guests are still enjoying their leftovers! We are so appreciative of Le Bella Vista for hosting our wedding. It was absolutely perfect and we could not be more happy!Sent on 10/12/2020

Getting married during a pandemic was EXTREMELY stressful to say the least. La Bella Vista went out of their way to help us navigate through these difficult times and still deliver an incredible day we will never forget.Sent on 10/15/2020

A Covid Wedding
I cannot thank la Bella vista and the team enough. As a Covid bride with THREE WEDDING DATES, a plate full of stress and the thought of my wedding not happening for at least another year... this team kept me so positive. They really became family to us during the most stressful times, they never showed any doubt, always sent positive energy and emails .. even a card on our first wedding date that was postponed. The punctuality was amazing, the response time in emails THE BEST. The day of my wedding A DREAM COME TRUE. I honestly don’t think I would’ve had the same outlook with any other venue. La Bella vista was for sure a 5 star venue and any chance I can have something again there I will. Thank you guys for making me feel like Cinderella with zero stress or concerns the day of my weddingSent on 10/15/2020
Of all the venues a couple can consider, look no further than La Bella Vista! The owners, management and staff are delightful to work with and their only concern is making your day perfect! The food is beyond delicious and heavenly, the venue is beautiful and I highly recommend them!
We love working with La Bella Vista's staff as they are so accommodating and professional. The ballrooms and grounds are stunning and the food is delicious as we have attended some of their tasting dinner. It is definitely a must see family run venue!
What can I say, La Bella Vista is amazing. Andrew and his team go out of their way to make your event go a smooth as possible. The food is so good as a photographer we look forward to working there. The staff are all friendly. The grounds for photos are stunning for photos. Cant wait to photograph my next event at La Bella Vista.
