Perfect wedding venue with delicious food
My husband and I got married at La Bella Vista on 9/21/19. Andrew Razz of LBV was a huge help in planning and staying organized leading up to the wedding and on the day of. Andrew was really honest and upfront when we wanted to add a few extras that he didn't think were needed. Everything turned out perfectly! So many guests raved to us after the wedding telling us it was the best wedding food they've ever had. So many friends and family members said their steaks were cooked perfectly. Food was the most important part of our day!Sent on 10/09/2019
LBV was also very accommodating to my food preferences and made me a special serving of one of the pastas so that it didn't have any chicken stock in it.
We had a maitre d for the night named Tricia who was AMAZING. Tricia helped from the moment I walked in to change into my gown for the first look until the end of the night. We also had a waitress named Kimberly who was also fantastic and made sure to wrap me up food to go to take home.
We could not have asked for a better venue, better food or a better waitstaff!
Thank you for a night we will never forget!!

"We would be fools not to book this place."
Upon our first time walking into the La Bella Vista, my then-fiance, Brandon, and I turned to each other slack-jawed. We met with Todd as he showed us around the venue. We wanted to get married on site, so we walked through what a winter wedding might look like there. After showing us the gorgeous grand foyer with its chandeliers, the giant reception hall, and the pristine grounds, the three of us sat down to go over potential cocktail hour food, dinner options, and more. Included in our package was more food than we could ever hope to eat as well as linens, uplighting, and the wedding cake from select vendors.
By the time we left I turned to Brandon and simply said, "We would be absolute fools not to book this place."
I know a lot of couples are worried about getting everything done before their wedding but working with La Bella Vista, we never once had that feeling. From the moment we booked with them we were treated with the utmost care and professionalism as they quickly answered all of questions and even supplied guidelines and checklists to keep us on track. They were able to cater to all of our wishes and then some.
On the day of our wedding our maitre'd, Trish, was practically superhuman. Always in the right place at the right time, making our transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception completely flawless. We received so many complements on the efficiency and care that Trish and her team had.
Finally, I want to mention how incredible the food was. I have an uncle who is very picky about how his steak is cooked and even HE said it was amazing! Endless complements about the cocktail hour food and hearing the excitement in guest's voices as they talk about the dessert stations was something I'll be thriving on for years to come.
Overall, we couldn't have found a better venue if we tried. The value, the atmosphere, the food, and above all else the staff are unparalleled.
Special shout out to Todd, Trish, and Lisa for their incredible kindness and professionalism through the whole process. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you!Sent on 03/07/2020

PERFECT!!! In every way!
There are so many amazing things to say about La Bella Vista and their staff I do not even know where to begin! My wedding day was absolutely perfect. I had not a care in the world, just pure happiness and that is what every bride should feel like on their wedding day. And the groom too! Both of us were able to enjoy the night, our guests and the food with no worries about anything, it was all handled for us.Sent on 11/21/2019
Trish and Todd were my coordinators and they are the people you want to have by your side while planning and executing a wedding. Without them, my day would not have been as magical and perfect as it was.
We worked with Todd from the start. He gave us a packet in the beginning telling us step by step what we needed to do and when it needed to be done. That packet is a life saver!! They organize every part of wedding planning in this packet so perfectly for you, which keeps your stress level way down! All you have to do is follow their timeline and you will be on track the entire time. Then at the end, all I had to do was bring the décor I wanted for my tables (guest tables, sweetheart table, etc..) prior to the wedding and they set everything up exactly like I had it in my head and even better! Anytime I had a question, Todd was right there to answer. Even when he was not in the office.
Trish is the superhero that sticks by your side the day of to ensure your dress is perfect, you are where you need to be and best of all – keeps your drink and your belly full! We had a cold day and she was by my side laughing through all the outdoor pictures we had to take. Trish – if you are reading this that was a blast!! Thank you! Everyone in our bridal party is amazed by Trish!
One HUGE aspect of a wedding – the FOOD!!!! The food here will blow your mind and your guests. It is SO GOOD and there is A LOT of it!! Our guests are still raving!! It is also good to note here that I had a chocolate fountain! Want to WOW your guests – get a chocolate fountain.
Many people have come to us to let us know that our wedding was the best they have ever been to. That is thanks to the team at LBV. The whole staff, they are all what made that day perfect.
Thank you La Bella Vista for making our day truly, the best day of our lives.
Any bride out there looking – I highly recommend!
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.
