Our experience at La Bella Vista was truly a dream!!! My husband and I have been through the wringer this year trying to not only plan a wedding, but simply finding a way to make it happen during these crazy times! Our original venue had to reschedule our date to more than a year out, and then we had a plan B, which canceled on us ONE week before our wedding date! Luckily, our J.O.P recommended La Bella Vista immediately. The night that our wedding venue canceled on us was chaotic and heartbreaking, to say the least. Linnea was in contact with us that same night and put our mind at ease from the moment we began chatting. She quickly directed me to the "Tented Wedding" options for me to review. She quickly managed to schedule an appointment for us to come to the venue on the next day to make sure it was a good fit for us. Within 5 minutes of seeing the venue and speaking with Linnea, my husband looked at me and said "this is the place, we are booking right now!" Once Linnea and her team got the go ahead from us, they didn't skip a beat. You would never know that they pulled together our wedding within 6 days!!! I now truly believe that everything happens for a reason. We are SO glad that our "Plan B" option fell through for us and we were guided to La Bella Vista. I wish we booked at this venue from the beginning of our wedding planning. The tented reception was so beautiful, I would prefer it over being inside any day! Their staff was truly like family. Not only were me and my husband catered to every second of the day, but so were our guests. Our guests still rave about the delicious food and service! I can't tell you how many times we heard "That was the best food I have ever had at a wedding!" We are so sad that our beautiful wedding is in the past, and we already miss Linnea and her amazing staff, but I have no doubt we will be back again for EVERY other event we plan. They truly are the best!Sent on 10/28/2020

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.
