    Amazingly accomodating.

    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.

    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 wedding
