I got married here about two weeks ago, and everything went perfectly! Catering was delicious, wished we could have taken some home with us! The grounds were beautiful and flowers bloomed just in time for us! I had no complaints about the venue itself. It was beautiful and the staff is all very kind and helpful!

Beautiful and Worth It!
Beautiful Venue with outstanding staff! Loved the food and the extras! We added the French fry bar, the s'mores firepit and the Italian soda bar and it was so worth it. We also had outdoor games and the children (and adults) socialized much more than is usual at weddings. The bride and groom spent that night at the venue in a gorgeous old-fashioned room and had breakfast there the next morning. It was a wonderful experience for the couple and for all of us!

The Victorian Belle is the perfect wedding venue! We had such an amazing experience. We loved that it is not only a gorgeous setting, but that they do the catering as well. We were so happy that they took care of the set-up and breakdown of tables, chairs, linens, etc. The staff is so helpful, accommodating, and kind. Joe (director), Jessica (day of coordinator), and Jeff (chef) were all quick to answer questions, assist in any way possible, and help us have a beautiful, stress-free wedding day. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect experience. For example, they provided vegan dishes for some of our guests, and hunted down the mother-of-the-groom’s lost glasses. Our guests continue to comment on how gorgeous the Victorian Belle was, how much they enjoyed the food, and how they loved exploring the inside of the house, as well as the amazing grounds. We would definitely recommend the Victorian Belle!
An absolutely stunning venue! We enjoyed every minute we got to work with them. They are knowledgeable, creative, kind, and experienced. They came well equipped with everything you could ever need, rain or shine. I could not recommend them more highly!
Talk about a great venue? THIS IS THE ONE! If you get a chance to secure this venue for your wedding & reception, DO IT QUICKLY before someone else takes your date. The staff is TOP NOTCH and the food is excellent. We are proud to be their preferred DJ / Entertainment Company!
