The Bellevue Team is AMAZING!

There are not enough words to effectively articulate how please we were with The Bellevue team. We booked our date with them back in December of 2020. From our initial email conversations, to planning and coordinating details, to the tasting, and the actual wedding weekend/day of - this team made sure every detail was perfect, and coordinated everything so seamlessly. We initially worked with Kelsey, then got to know Pam, and, finally, Sade joined our planning team. All 3 ladies were amazing, responsive, and professional. They made sure our questions were answered, and our voices were heard. They went above and beyond throughout this entire process. When looking for venues, The Bellevue stood out to us because of its obvious beauty, but the staff is really what sold us. They were flexible and willing to accommodate us, and made our guests feel so welcomed. We HIGHLY recommend this venue - you will absolutely not regret it!!

Perfection

I cannot even being to explain the absolute perfect job Lisa and the Bellevue staff did for our wedding weekend. Our wedding was beyond anything I could have ever imagined and saying thank you is just not enough. We did not want the weekend to end! I have had so many guests contact me to tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been too. That they were so impressed with the servers at the wedding they personally tipped them because they were so fabulous and attentive. Andre and Richie were beyond helpful and made me and Matt feel like we were king and queen for the day. The front desk staff, housekeeping, Justin at valet - literally every employee I had contact with went above and beyond to make sure me and Matt were having the best weekend ever. Lisa, Andre and Richie made our wedding perfect and I will never be able to thank them enough for the pride they take in their job, and how they made sure this was a day I will never ever forget...nobody will!
