Look no further
Bella Collina is INCREDIBLE!!! My heart was set on this venue years ago. I didn't tour anywhere else. Joe and Erin made the entire experience so easy. I was never stressed about anything during the planning process with them. Day of Interviews allowed me to pick all my vendors all in one day, eliminating all the calling around and searching for people available on the same day. My wedding was a fairytale wedding. It was exactly what I dreamed about all those years ago when I fell in love with their venue. All my guests have commented on how incredible the staff of Bella Collina was. Even the smallest of details, they were on top of it. The day ran so smooth. Something was always going on to entertain our guests. At least half our guests have reached out to us to tell us that was the best wedding they had ever been too.
I feel obligated to tell everyone engaged couple I know to entrust their day to Bella Collina. There is NO WAY you will be disappointed. Everyone went above and beyond to make my day perfect! Not even one hiccup! I'm a Bella Bride for life!!
Thank you Joe!

There are no words to describe how insanely brilliant this team is..but i'm going to try! I just got married at Bella this past weekend, 12.11.21, and it was such a crazy day with a few last minute hiccups (road closures, unexpected parade downtown, unforgiving mother nature, etc.) and this team wasn't fazed at all...they continued to handle everything professionally and with such grace. I felt so safe and taken care of on my big day and I couldn't imagine a better place to get married. Kara, Erin, and Joe are wonderful and were always willing to go above and beyond to make my day perfect. Kara was ON POINT and I couldn't have asked for a more experienced, calm, and attentive day of supervisor! I highly recommend Brian Anthony Photography and Derrick at Siren Studies as they both went to GREAT LENGTHS to make sure I got every sweet moment captured inside/outside despite weather issues and time constraints (not to mention Brian laying down on the wet ground MULTIPLE times to ensure we got a great picture). Again...this was the best day I have ever had and it wouldn't have been possible without the Bella Collina Team. Much love always.

This venue was THE BEST for our wedding. They have a whole system down that makes your wedding day run smoothly and efficiently.
INCREDIBLE IN EVERY WAY. Bella gave me the wedding of my dreams. From day 1 they were helping me plan and followed my ideas of having the traditional aspects of a wedding but making them my own. The vendors they provided were impeccable. All of my guests were AMAZED at the venue and how beautiful it was. I love this venue and the staff, thank you all for giving us our dream wedding and making it not only the best night of our lives but our guests as well ! Every single one told us that was the BEST wedding/night of their lives.

My Dream Wedding Venue
I don't know where to start. Bella Collina Mansion is the place to wed at. Their ability to provide their couples with everything they need is top notch. Joe and Erin are an amazing team. We booked this venue 2yrs ago because we wanted to have it all. We wanted to ensure that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. They are so organized and beyond attentive. Our wedding date was 9.3.21. The setup was beautiful, the way that the entire Bella team worked with one another was amazing to watch. Our wedding was a dream that they helped make possible. We hired all of there recommended ppl. The Day of Interviews that they schedule
helps to make that process a smooth and easy one. Joe and Erin leave no wedding planning stone unturned. I 100% recommend them and so does my wife. They are LGBTQIA+ friendly. They treated us amazingly well. Our bridal party had a grand time and they loved the way Bella moved. Our parents were pleased and felt that Bella went above and beyond to make the day so what it was. If you're thinking of getting married here, you will not regret it. The property alone will make you fall in love!!

Best decision of our wedding!
Going with Bella Collina for our wedding venue was by far the best decision we made during wedding planning--besides getting married, of course ;-] From the start Joe and Erin made us feel like family. I read tons of horror stories in different wedding groups from other brides about things going wrong on their wedding day with their vendors and/or venue. We NEVER had to worry about that with Bella, we knew that every one of their vendors would show up and give 100%. I actually got to enjoy wedding planning because I knew they had everything under control. The communication was outstanding, the vendors were professional and accommodating, and they made our day the absolute best day of our lives!

Fairytale Wedding (even during COVID)
I could write a book with the number of positive things I have about my Bella Collina experience. The wedding process was painless and less stressful that’s for sure (since they literally have so many vendors included in their all inclusive packages). I am know to be a bit of an overachiever and literally researched and talked to 15+ venues, but we toured Bella first....Let’s just say we went home, toured a venue the following weekend but all we did was talk about how it wasn’t like Bella. Just take tour, talk to Erin or Joe. You will see what I am talking about
My husband and I had the absolute best day at Bella Collina. They made everything come together so perfectly and the day went so smooth. We literally cannot say enough good things about this place!!!! Please do yourself a favor and get married here :)
Ashley G. , married on 11/08/2020
Absolutely the most beautiful venue ever!!!!
Words can’t even express how amazing our wedding experience was at this venue. We planned our wedding for almost a year and a half and Joe and his staff were with us the entire way. We recently were married Nov 8 2020 and every single vendor with this venue was amazing, so attentive, so passionate about making this the perfect wedding for me and my hubby. The mansion is absolutely gorgeous and stole my heart from the moment I stepped foot inside. I can’t even imagine our perfect wedding anywhere else. I really can’t speak more highly of this venue. Joe and Erin and all of their staff are phenomenal!! This is really a Bride’s dream come true castle. Even my guests were all in awww with the beauty of the mansion and the wonderful staff!!!!
Randy B. , married on 10/10/2020
Father of the bride
I highly recommend Joe and his staff the The Bella Collina Mason. They made my daughter’s wedding day perfect . They work hard to make the ceremony and the reception flawless. Joe and his staff were so pleasant to deal with they made the planning so easy. Thanks again Joe for a wonderful day.
Amanda B. , married on 10/10/2020
Incredible Experience and Amazing Staff
First of all, how organized this venue is with coordinating your wedding and every day leading up to that is incredible. The venue owner, Joe and his staff will bend over backwards to make your day special. They have done so many weddings that you hardly have anything to do or worry about when it comes to your wedding day. Our wedding day at this venue is definitely memorable, thanks to Joe and his amazing team.
Brittny A. , married on 10/03/2020
Dreams Do Come True
As a little girl I’ve always dreamed of having a ‘fairytale’ wedding and Joe and the staff at Bella literally made it come true!! I am just in awe at how beautiful our day was and I wish I could do it all again just for fun!! Fabulous venue, awesome staff and flawless execution! They really do know what they’re doing!
Lisa , married on 05/24/2020
Perfect wedding venue and experience
Bella Collina was such a beautiful venue. And the staff made sure everything was easy leading up to the day and on the day made everything smooth and perfect!

Bella Collina - The BEST venue
Where to even begin!!
When we found this venue, I would say that my husband and I had already toured over 10 other venues before Bella Collina and we had seen a few others that we had liked but none that we were set on that had quite the “wow” factor that Bella Collina has! We were actually just looking through venues and Bella Collina popped up and we read all the reviews and saw the awesome ratings and knew we had to check it out! From the moment we drove up the driveway and set eyes on the venue and the scenery. I knew without a doubt this would be where we would be getting married. The location is just so beautiful and the mansion is exquisite. It was perfect!
Erin gave us a tour of the mansion and we instantly fell in love with everything that day. She was super friendly and answered all our questions! My husband and I both agreed that day that it was where we wanted to get married. We soon met the venue owner, Joe, and happily secured our date!
Joe and Erin are both super friendly and easy to communicate with. My husband and I were super impressed with how everything was set up and how easily it is to get things scheduled with them. Their communication with us was spot on! They are so easy to work with. Something we really enjoyed was something called “Day of Interviews” where we got to come in and meet some of Bellas preferred vendors and then pick the ones we would like to work with. This helped take away a lot of the stress that lots of other engaged couples have to go through with finding vendors separately.
Since our wedding ceremony was planned to be outdoors by the lake, when it came down to the last couple of days before our wedding and we had to make a decision about whether to move the ceremony inside or not because of the weather. Joe was absolutely amazing at making sure that we still got to have our dream wedding by watching the weather and helping us plan accordingly down to the last couple of hours! :)
We got to have our first dance out on the balcony overlooking our guests out on the patio, which was breathtaking! All of our friends and family have been talking about it for the past couple of weeks since our wedding.
Thanks to Joe, Erin, this amazing venue, and staff we got to have our dream wedding. It was everything we could have ever imagined! You can really tell that they love what they do and it shows. Thank you for helping us have our happily ever after! You really showed us that you genuinely care :)
Bella Collina exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond what we could ever have imagined a wedding venue doing. We felt at ease on the day of our wedding in their hands.
Marina , married on 09/15/2020
Amazing team . Made my dream come true.
Kim , married on 08/31/2019
Exceeded all our expectations!!
It was flawless from beginning to end! When we were inquiring about venues to hold our wedding and celebration, a photographer friend of ours commented on Bella by saying ‘it is run like a well oiled machine’. WOW!! And does it ever!! The day, the venue, the vendors, owner and all of those that contributed. PERFECT is the word that comes to mind. Even with COVID thwarting our original plans, Joe went above and beyond to accommodate and make our wedding day the fairy tale we were looking for. We can’t say enough...we highly recommend Bella to anyone!! Kim and Tom
Kevin C. , married on 05/06/2020
Best Wedding Venue in North Carolina!
Professional, dedicated, and beautifully crafted doesn't even begin to describe the experience you will get at Bella Collina. By far the very best wedding venue in North Carolina, without a doubt. Trust me, my wife and I looked all over the state and Bella Collina blows all others out of the water! Most professionals who run wedding venues may be good at what they do, but Joe and Erin are at the top of the game. Both of them really LOVE weddings which you can really feel throughout all your experience with them. Joe and Erin facilitated our dream wedding at the peak of COVID-19 and still made it the best experience of my life! Who else could possibly do that?! Their BOSS network of wedding professionals and BOSS software/app make chaotic wedding coordination a breeze. Joe delivered an incredibly special and unique wedding experience that still has all our guests saying, WOAH! From a stunning venue, kneeboarding on the lake in the morning of our wedding, our first dance on a juliet balcony, coordinating all the professionals weeks before and the day of, squeezing in dancing outside while he carefully watches rain radar, and leaving by boat shortly after, Bella Collina delivers the ultimate VIP experience. There's no one else you want planning your wedding other than Joe and Erin. They will never BS you, always give you their honest and open opinion, and will deliver a wedding day neither you nor your guests will ever forget. I would give them 10 stars if I could. The only thing I could wish for is for my friends will have their weddings at Bella Collina in the future so that I can experience their wonderful service all over again! Again, if you're looking for a wedding venue, stop right now and call them immediately.

Real Life Fairytale
There is no where like Bella Collina. Joe and Erin run the mansion likely a finely tuned machine and they are committed to you and your wedding. Even through the COVID pandemic, they made sure that we were able to have the wedding that we have always wanted. Joe was always available to answer questions. My husband and I had extreme anxiety over the wedding and Joe always took the time to make us feel less stressed and confident in his team. We were originally supposed to get married March 28th and had to reschedule. Joe took the time to contact all our vendors for us and made the process so easy. I am thrilled that we chose to get married at Bella Collina, because I honestly think if we would have chosen a different location, we would still not be married.
The day of the wedding was like a fairytale. Everything was magical. Joe and Erin coordinated the entire day and they were there if we had any questions. The staff makes you feel like the king and queen of the mansion. They made sure our day was stress free and that we were always taken care of. They make sure you eat before everyone else and that you are actually put first on your special day. They give you special moments alone with your spouse that would normally be overlooked.
Besides the staff, the mansion itself is breathtaking. I have never seen such a beautiful home. From the bridal tower, to the lake front view, it is absolutely amazing. You also do not have to stress about the weather. Joe has a solid back up plan and is flexible. He watches the weather from hour to hour and can seamlessly switch arrangements when possible.
I honestly wish I could relive our wedding day over and over. Bella Collina gave us the most extraordinary day we could have possibly imagined. We have such happy memories as do our guests.
If you are considering Bella Collina, you should do it ! You will not have one regret. You have waited for this day your entire life and they make it one you will never forget. They are committed to making your day happen and they will not let you down.
Thank you to Joe, Erin, and the entire Bella team. We will miss you guys ! Keep the magic going !

Best Day Ever!
From the very beginning I knew Bella Collina would be a magical place to get married at. Joe was very honest and informative throughout the whole process. I was trying to plan a wedding, close on a house, and study for college exams all at the same time and the staff at Bella Collina made everything effortless. Any questions I had Joe was able to answer them right away with detailed answers. This is a very professional venue and they will create an itinerary so you know exactly how your day will go. They also allow Day of interviews which is where all the vendors come to the mansion and you get to interview them and decide who you want. This made it very easy and convenient. The day of the wedding Joe and the staff made me feel stress free and his mom was very comforting to talk to right before I walked down the aisle. This is a beautiful mansion to fill your fairytale wedding dream. Booking this venue would be the best decision you will ever make.
Sarah N. , married on 11/02/2019
Told repeatedly it was the best wedding our guests have ever been to
Joe and Erin nailed it. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical of all of the 5-star reviews and people saying their guests thought it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. It’s the biggest party you’ll ever throw and you don’t have any experience in throwing it. Wedding planning is a stressful experience, but take comfort in knowing that Joe and Erin have done this hundreds of times. They know how to throw this party and ours went off without a hitch (well, except for us actually getting hitched!). From the time I showed up that morning, everything was going on behind the scenes and they only needed me for a couple of things right after I walked in the door. I wasn’t interrupted the rest of the morning. I’m an over-planner and even though the evening didn’t go in order of my schedule, such are weddings and the order of how things actually went was probably better than what I had planned. Joe and Erin’s responsiveness during the whole planning process was impressive. I would always get a response within a couple of hours during the weekdays. Their “day of interviews” process is also great. You get all your major vendors booked over the course of an afternoon! Joe oversaw the whole wedding and orchestrated it perfectly. Our guests were so impressed by the scenery as it really is a decoration in and of itself. Thank you, thank you, Joe and Erin! Take it from a former skeptic, save yourself the hassle of taking time off of work over several weeks to meet with vendors and trying to negotiate contracts, and save yourself the stress of coordinating all on your own and just book! I hope your day will be as beautiful as ours was on 11/2/19.
Jessica , married on 11/16/2019
All-Inclusive Fairytale Wedding
Bella Collina Mansion is hands down the best venue to host your wedding! It’s all inclusive, so that’s already an advantage. What we paid for our wedding is what some venues have the nerve to charge just to rent the building. We didn’t have to go looking for vendors, because Bella already had the best vendors working directly with them. It’s a one stop shop, and well worth it.
When we first reached out to them, they responded promptly and answered every one of my 1,000 questions with a smile on their face. Upon our first arrival to the venue, goosebumps went down our spine. The house is immaculate. We met the entire staff and vendors, all of them treating us as if they’ve know us our whole life. You feel the love as soon as you walk through the 12 foot doors!
On the wedding day, they’re by your side each and every step talking you through what to do next and answering any questions you may have. Trust me, you’ll have more questions than you could ever imagine. They’re so calm during all of this, which you end up feeding off of. I went from nervous and not knowing what to do next to calm and confident in my next move. I wouldn’t have been able to survive my own wedding day without them. My parents even want to renew their vows there and both my best man and 12 year old nephew want to only get married at Bella. Yes, this perfect venue made my 12 year old nephew think about marriage rather than batman. Truly amazing.
I highly suggest the boat ride for the groomsmen the morning of the wedding. It costs a little extra, but we had a blast playing in the water at 11am and it distracted our minds on the big fact that it’s a major wedding about to occur shortly after. Before the boat ride we were all uptight, but after we were so relaxed as if we were back at home in the basement on a Sunday shooting pool and watching football. I also did a boat departure after the wedding, which was epic!
A couple of days after our wedding night, my wife realized she couldn’t find a custom gift that she treasured so much. She reached out to Bella, who reviewed the camera footage of where she had it last, and then told us to check a certain spot in a particular plastic bag. Sure enough, it was there! Do you know how much camera footage you have to go through to find such a little gift?! I feel like I owe them all a steak dinner just for that kind gesture because my wife was in tears looking for this. They literally go above and beyond for you, treating your wedding as if it’s there own.
My wife and I have a list of over 150 names that we would name our first child, even our first dog. Bella was never on the list. After experiencing the perfect wedding from start to finish hosted by Bella Collina, we both agreed that if we have a daughter, her name is going to be Bella. That right there goes to show what type of venue this is, how warming and welcoming the Bella Collina family is, and most importantly, how perfect the most important day of our life went.
Thanks again Bella. We will forever be in debt to you!

What Dreams Are Made Of
Joe, Erin, and their team are everything you would hope for in a wedding venue! They were very responsive with any question we had and made the entire process super easy for us by making sure we had every last detail covered. If something went wrong on the wedding day, I definitely did not know. They handle everything down to the wire so that the bride and groom do not have to worry about it the day of. Plus the venue is just beautiful, what more could you ask for besides a mansion on a lake! My wedding day was everything I dreamed of and it was made possible by this team and venue.
Kassi G. , married on 09/21/2019
Beautiful and Effortless
From the beginning, the entire staff at Bella Collina and Joe have been absolutely wonderful to work with. They honestly go above and beyond to make sure that your day is EXACTLY what you want it to be. They are transparent about the house rules and are very detail oriented to make sure that all aspects of wedding planning are covered. On the "day of" interviews, they make it so easy by allowing all of the vendors to come to you! This made it very easy for me as I was planning my wedding as an out of town bride. They also provide a 45 day meeting which covered literally every detail of the day that you can imagine. Joe kept our best interest in mind and provided excellent ideas to us to accommodate not only our needs, but our guests needs as well. On the day of our wedding, Joe even offered to take the groom and his party out on his boat as they waited anxiously for the ceremony to start. Not only did Joe and his staff go above and beyond in keeping our timeline on track, but they make sure to make you feel comfortable throughout the entire day. The gave me a pep talk before I walked down the grand staircase (which is beautiful, but a lot scarier standing at the top than you would imagine); they brought cocktail hour food to the wedding party after the ceremony and before pictures to make sure no one went hungry; they also adapted our schedule beautifully when some parts of the wedding went a little longer than what was scheduled. Honestly, we could not thank the staff at Bella Collina enough for making our day perfect and for making us feel like part of the Bella family. They are phenomenal to work with and I would recommend getting married there a million times over.
Angela , married on 04/20/2019
Amazing venue and beautiful
Our day was amazing and we choose the perfect venue for the perfect day

If you are on the fence, go with Joe!
There aren't enough words to describe to wonderful and perfect our wedding was thanks to Joe and his team! Every question you have, Joe has an answer. No addition planner is necessary because of how organized Joe and his team are. One our day of, I didn't have to lift a finger or worry in the slightest. We would chose Bella Collina 100 times over! 10 out of 10, if you want a stress free planning process choose Bella
Erika , married on 09/09/2018
Bella Collina is amazing!!! They bring to you so many options from vendors to the amazing view! They are very knowledgeable as well

Dream wedding at a Dream Venue
I found Bella Collina on a wedding website, and as soon as I showed the online photos to my husband we knew it was the place for us! They make the wedding planning process very easy. We were planning a North Carolina wedding from Pittsburgh PA, and Bella Collina made it as stress free as possible for us. With a network of A+ preferred vendors and packages for all budgets, I can't imagine a more professional team. We knew we wanted a lake view, and the views at Bella Collina do not disappoint. There are so many options for ceremony and reception locations on the property, so every wedding can be as unique as you want it. We ended up with a ceremony on the deck in the month of November. You would think this impossible, but Joe monitored the weather conditions until the day before the wedding and made sure to give us everything we wanted! Our guests complimented the smooth transitions throughout the day and the venue itself they kept referring to as "A Fairytale Wedding." I could not agree more! Bonus points: a lovely bridal quarters with enough space for your whole crew to get ready, a super cool grooms suite for the guys to hang out, photo op in so many locations, Juliet balcony for your first dance (private and dreamy), you barely need decorations since the house is so gorgeous (money-saver), a smooth flow from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception to dancing and cake since it is a home so the layout just makes sense! Take a look at the pictures on their website-it is EXACTLY as beautiful as it seems!
Caryn , married on 10/27/2018
I cannot say enough about Joe and Bella. You simply cannot beat the view, the price, or the experience of booking the Bella Collina Mansion. From the moment I toured the mansion, I knew I wanted to get married here. It had everything - romance, elegance, contingency plans for inclement weather, and all inclusive packages. Joe and Erin know their stuff. Information was overwhelming, but completely black and white and I felt like I was in competent hands from the start. Joe and his staff were highly responsive to all of my emails and questions throughout the planning period. The weekend of the wedding went incredibly smoothly. Any and all concerns were handled swiftly and efficiently by Joe and his staff and they went above and beyond to make sure the day went as perfectly as possible. By the end of the night, Joe felt more like a friend than a business owner. I have incredible memories of being at Bella Collina and my MOH has a new skill she can add to her resume - Professional Fluffer will follow her to the grave. Do yourself a favor and book Bella Collina if you're on the fence. You will not be sorry.

GREAT wedding venue
Let me start out by saying that EVERYTHING you have heard about Bella Collina Mansion is true. And I’m pretty sure that you haven’t heard one bad thing about this place. It is as close to perfect as a venue can get. If you want a scenic wedding, complete with a lakeside ceremony, first dance from a balcony, beautiful sunset view, etc., this is the venue for you. If you want an all-inclusive place with seamless transitions for you and your guests from ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, this is the venue for you. And finally, if you want a caring, extremely experienced staff on hand to take care of all the little (and big) stuff so you don’t have to, this is the venue for you. This place is truly the big deal everyone says it is, and more. They clearly map out the process of preparing for the wedding, from the “day of interviews” where you meet with and select your vendors, to the itinerary that they stick to on your wedding day to move things along smoothly. Listen… Bella Collina is the real deal, and they have earned every one of their 5-star reviews. Go over there and check them out ASAP!
Diane , married on 08/31/2018
Joe and his team exceeded our expectations. They identified vendors that were attentive and worked so well with us and each other. The attention to detail is amazing and Joe orchestrated the event with perfection. They provide tremendous support, addressing issues and details we hadn’t considered. This helped eliminate stresses and concerns on such an important day which allowed us to enjoy every moment!! The venue is so beautiful and meticulously maintained. Our guests loved the location and had a great time. Thank you!
Misty , married on 09/08/2018
First of all, Joe is the best at what he does! The venue is what dreams are made of. The day of our wedding went absolutely perfect thanks to Joe, his wonderful mom, and ALL of the Bella staff! Everyone was so professional and helpful throughout the day. I couldn't have asked for anything more nor needed to. They stayed on top of every wedding aspect. Drinks placed before the bridal party arrived at every area, a much needed "behind the scenes" reminder of the little things you would otherwise nervously forget, and A LOT of nerve calming! The list of everything they do perfectly could go on. Ultimately I would chose this venue 100 times over. 5 stars isn't enough to rate this experience!
Aaron , married on 06/22/2018
The first thing that comes to my mind when writing this review is Perfection!!! Five minutes into touring the mansion and seeing the beautiful views, we knew we had to get married at Bella. Joe and his staff took care of everything for us to make our special day perfect. From the day of interviews with vendors, to answering every single question we had up to our wedding day, Joe always had an answer, and always got back to me quickly. You can tell Joe and his staff are dedicated to making your wedding day perfect and exactly how you want it. Even Joe's mother comes and helps by escorting the older folks to/down the elevator to get anywhere that is needed. Joe tells you exactly where to be, when to be there, and even escorts you to where you need to be. Everything is on time, organized, and Joe will go out of his way to ensure everything is the way you wanted it. Did I say the view is amazing??!! We had guests taking more pictures of the view and the house then we did us. Driving down the driveway and seeing the mansion with the lake is a sight to be seen. You will not find a better place to get married, so don't waste your time looking!! We had many guests tell us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. What sets the Bella Collina even more ahead than other venues, there is a backup plan if the weather gets bad. You can have your wedding outdoors or indoors, both are beautiful. Plenty of room in the Mansion to have everything inside if needed. Joe, his staff, and his vendors all want your day to be perfect, and it will be. I was sad when our day was over because I had so much fun, and that's because I did not have to worry about a single thing. Our day was perfect and I cannot thank Joe enough for the perfect wedding of our dreams!!!
Angeles , married on 07/22/2018
Stress free or someone who can do the stressing for you well that’s Bella Collina! My husband and I had quite a rowdy crowd and very specific things that we wanted at our wedding even some requests Joe had never had . He made them happen. At every moment he made sure I was ok and happy. Besides how beautiful Bella Collina is and how great the staff is what makes Bella Collina so amazing is how much they care. What matters most to them is that they see your wedding day as something special not just some customer. To say how blessed we were doesn’t explain enough how grateful my husband and I were to have chosen Bella Collina.
Mr. & Mrs. Sandoval
Danielle , married on 07/07/2018
This is a no-brainer! If you want a stress-free, perfect wedding, you MUST go with the Bella Collina. This is a top-notch wedding venue with an amazing staff and fantastic vendors. Avoid the wedding horror stories and choose the wedding venue every bride deserves to have. They are super popular and have limited availability with all their bookings, but it is so so so worth it!
Thank you Joe and all who helped make my wedding day perfect at the Bella Collina this past Saturday :)
Much love, Danielle
Melissa , married on 05/19/2018
I could not have asked for a better wedding! The staff at Bella Collina are top of the line, they ensure all your needs and desires are met. They strive on making sure the bride has everything she needs and is completely happy the day of her wedding. One of my bridesmaids had an issue with the zipper on her dress and Joe's mom was able to fix it twice! She is a lifesaver and brings calmness the day of the wedding. She made sure the zipper was fixed and was more than happy to help. Joe knows exactly what he is doing, we did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding. The convenience of the all-inclusive he offers cannot be matched at any other venue. Joe makes sure everything stays on track the day of the wedding, there are no worries about what will happen next. Our wedding ran so smooth and everyone had a great time. We did not just have a wedding at Bella Collina we had an event. Choosing Bella Collina as the place to get married is the best decision anyone can make. You will not regret it!
Ashley , married on 06/09/2018
Before finding Bella Collina, I was at my wit's end and was pretty much set on giving up the dream of having a wedding. I was feeling defeated at how difficult the planning process was proving to be. Then my husband found Bella Collina. From the moment we saw the mansion for the first time to the final exit on our wedding day, the experience was perfection. Joe takes a true interest in each couple and provides exemplary service from beginning to end. We had very specific preferences and needs and they were all met without hesitation. While the planning process is wonderful, the true reason for our 5-star review is the day of the wedding. Every staff member is willing to go above and beyond for the bride and groom to make the day perfect and that is exactly what they did for us. The relationship between Bella Collina, the vendors and the couples they serve cannot be replicated anywhere else. We are still in awe at how magical our day was and we have Bella Collina to thank for that. There is no question that Bella Collina's services are worth the value. For this kind of service, attention and experience anywhere else we could have paid double or triple the price. Thank you does not even begin to cover our gratitude to Bella Collina for creating what was truly the happiest day of our lives. We will spend the rest of our lives knowing that our wedding day was as close to perfect as an event like this can get and that is all thanks to Joe and Bella Collina.

As both, my husband and I, have sat back and reminisced on all the events leading up to, as well as our wedding day, we are simply in awe! We first found Bella Collina Mansion by searching on Google for all inclusive venues that were in the right budget point. Being 2 hours from us, we took a leap of faith and took a tour of “Cinderella’s Castle” and that indeed it was! We fell instantly in love with the mansion by it’s timeless elegance. Being an outdoor/indoor venue by a lake, it was everything we ever wanted and it was at that point we knew this was the spot for us. We were impressed by Erin and Joe’s personality and professionalism. Joe and his staff goes above and beyond to make sure ALL details, big or small, matter and that your day is absolutely stress free. His hand picked vendors are nothing short of amazing. You truly feel like royalty! Our wedding day was absolute bliss! Even though we were planned for an outdoor ceremony, rain was in the forecast, so their back up plan for indoors was even more magical than we could have imagined and turned out for the best! There aren’t enough words to describe how truly marvelous Joe and his team are! We highly, highly recommend Bella Collina Mansion for your Dream Come True!! Bella made our wedding day a dream come true and we will be eternally thankful!!!
Arina , married on 06/15/2017
WOW, is all I can say! When looking at all of the pictures and reviews online of Bella Collina it seemed too good to be true. It's like I was waiting for there to be a catch somewhere, so I booked a tour to really check it out. From the moment we stepped foot on the property we were mesmerized. We were greeted by Erin who met us with a smile. We were so blown away at not only breathtaking venue, but how we were treated since we had walked through Bella Collina's magical doors. We decided that this was the place for us and wanted to secure a date! We decided to do the "Get married in 90 days wedding".
I was nervous to get married in such a short amount of time. Let me tell you it was the ABSOLUTE BEST decision we have made thus far! From returning my phone calls or emails so quickly, to literally thinking of every last detail that needed to be addressed, to the seamless order of events that occurred throughout our day.
I remember thinking as I was getting ready to walk down the steps how cool, calm and collected Bella Collina's team was. They even had headsets and walkie talkies to ensue everyone was positioned at the right spot at the exact right time. In fact, Joe's mother was talking to me before I walked down the steps to calm my underlying nerves. She spoke so beautifully to me. She even told me where to look while I was walking to the altar so that my pictures would turn out best. I literally felt like I was a princess!
You can tell how truly dedicated Joe is to his work. I follow Bella Collina on social media and enjoy seeing his daily posts. You can tell that he has such a passion for this!
I feel extremely blessed to have meet the Bella Collina family and will forever be thankful for them to providing me a wedding I couldn't have even dreamed of! Basically if you aren't getting married at Bella Collina you're doing it all wrong.
Amber , married on 04/27/2018
Honestly, what can I say that hasn't already been said?! This place gave me everything I could want in a wedding and more. I felt so relaxed in all aspects of the wedding planning because they had already thought of every little detail and just asked me what I wanted each step of the way. I really can't express enough how easy it was to plan a wedding while in graduate school, in another state, and while studying for boards because I chose to go with Bella Collina. Seriously, it was just so perfect. Everything you could want in a venue and coordinator. My guests are still raving about how beautiful the place is. Also, we left on a boat... which is something I bet none of your other friends will do. My guests loved that! You will definitely not regret your choice if you choose Bella. TAKE THE TOUR!!! You will fall in love!
Kelly , married on 04/21/2018
Our experience was absolutely magical. When they say they do everything and you don’t have to stress, they mean it! Joe even told me he worried about me because I had very little contact through the process. The reason though, is that I knew I had nothing to worry about! Everything about our wedding day was perfect! Thank you guys again for everything you did!
Brooke , married on 09/23/2017
We could not have chosen a better venue! They literally think of everything (I mean everything). They assist you with planning out every logistical detail and are extremely responsive. The entire team is extremely professional and go above and beyond to deliver the wedding of your dreams!
Jeff , married on 11/18/2017
Very accommodating and easy to work with staff. Responsive to issues as well as what we were feeling the day of the wedding. Would recommend to any couple.
Haleigh , married on 08/05/2017
This is the #1 venue for a perfect wedding! Our day was everything we dreamed of because of this wonderful place and all of the help from their excellent staff.
Holly , married on 11/05/2017
Joe/Bella Collina has a thing going! They have held so many weddings, they know how to coordinate everything! We are so impressed with Bella's responsiveness to our questions/concerns in a timely manner & provided us recommendations. Bella definitely provided a stress-free wedding knowing that we were in good hands since day one. As the bride, Joe's mother was there to help coordinate & she helped me with breathing techniques before I walked down the aisle, she was so sweet! We received so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was and how they enjoyed our beautiful wedding. We would highly recommended Bella Collina to everyone. Thank you Bella, it was a pleasure working with you.
Katelyn , married on 10/06/2017
Bella Collina truly is amazing! They definitely go above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is perfect. I am so thankful I came across this place while looking for venues. It was worth every penny!
Leslie , married on 09/02/2017
One word, PERFECT! Bella Collina Mansion was everything we wanted and needed, we cannot recommend them highly enough! Not only is Bella Collina breathtaking, Joe and his staff are better than we ever could have dreamed. We arrived at our initial meeting with a binder full of questions, but Joe was able to answer all of them and ones we never would have thought of. What makes Bella Collina so special is mainly four things:
• The beauty and the elegance of the venue itself
• Joe and his staff’s dedication to do everything they can make your wedding day not only perfect, but as stress-free and easy as possible
• The relative turnkey ability that Bella Collina offers with features such as their single-day of vendor interviews
• The affordability that Bella Collina offers as it works as a partner to drive down costs with their world-class vendors
Because of the affordability and turnkey features that Bella Collina offers, we were able to plan our wedding from over 1,500 miles away. We cannot stress enough how beautiful and perfect our wedding was. In fact, it even rained during our reception, but Joe and his staff were so on top of EVERYTHING that we had our guests and tables inside before the rain. Also, thanks to the design of Bella Collina, the party kept going without as so much as a pause. Leading up to our wedding our friends and family couldn’t believe that we did not need their help, but because of Joe’s diligence we had already taken care of everything. We wanted an outdoor wedding by the water at a beautiful venue and had indoor capabilities in case it rained. Also, we needed a venue that was affordable and involved enough that we could fly into town a few days before the wedding. Bella Collina was everything we wanted and needed, we cannot recommend them highly enough! There are not enough words to praise Bella Collina! If you want a beautiful, affordable, and stress-free wedding with the option of outside or inside, then book with Bella Collina Mansion!
Erika , married on 10/22/2017
Bella Collina could not have been a more perfect venue! From start to finish our experience with Joe, Erin, and his team was incredible. They made wedding planning seem easy. They led you every step of the way to ensure you have your dream wedding exactly the way you pictured. From the day we booked Bella Collina as our venue to the day of the wedding everything was perfect. You get an incredible view on their spacious deck making your reception that much more amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and time at Bella Collina. I wish we could do it all again !
Cassie , married on 09/03/2017
I recently moved to North Carolina and was looking for the best wedding venue for my September 2017 wedding. When I found Bella Collina, I knew that I had found the perfect place! Words cannot express how beautiful Bella Collina is.. a beautiful mansion set on a lake. It really makes you feel like you are a princess! Joe, Erin, and the whole Bella Collina team go above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is absolutely perfect! My wedding was a little over a month ago, and literally nothing went wrong the entire day! It was a fairytale and something I will forever wish I could do all over again! My guests were SOO impressed with this venue. They raved about how beautiful the mansion was and how seamless the whole day went. Joe is a godsend - he does this day in and day out and can handle anything thrown at him during the process. The day was so stress-free for me - from getting there at 10am, through hair and make up and all the way until we left on our sparkler exit, everything was perfect. If you are looking for THE BEST wedding venue in NC (really anywhere), you MUST choose Bella Collina! Thank you again Joe & family for giving me the most perfect fairytale wedding. It was the best day of our lives! Shaina , married on 09/15/2017 5.0 Joe and the staff at Bella Collina exceeded our wedding expectations. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Bella Collina has mastered what it takes to run a flawless wedding. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone is looking for a very professional, timely sensitive, and low stress environment.
Hillary , married on 08/12/2017
We were married at Bella 2 weeks ago and it was the best experience of our lives! We felt like royalty in the middle of our very own fairy tale. Bella Collina was everything we wanted in a venue – and more. Working with Joe and his staff was a pleasure from beginning to end. We booked Bella Collina more than a year in advance, and throughout those 14 months Joe and Erin were always available whenever we had a question or a concern. While all of our vendors were wonderful, the few times we had even a small issue with them we knew we could go to Joe, and he would take care of it for us. This is just one of the many ways they made the entire experience stress free for us. When it looked like rain might threaten our wedding day, Joe had already been over the contingency plan with us, so we did not have to panic over potential bad weather. The Bella staff have literally thought of everything and then created a Plan B – just in case. The day of the wedding we just had to show up with our wedding party and enjoy having the entire day to relax, get ready at the Mansion, and have pictures taken. That is one major way that Bella differs from many other venues – you are allowed to get to the Mansion at 10 a.m. which is much earlier than many venues will allow. During the ceremony and the reception afterwards all we had to do was enjoy the moment. There was never a time when anyone on staff was coming to us – or to our parents – to ask questions about what to do next, etc. The Bella Collina staff had everything so perfectly organized, that everything just flowed naturally. They really know how to throw a great wedding! We looked at several venues online, but Bella Collina Mansion was the first – and the last venue we visited. As soon as we walked in the door we knew that was where we wanted to be married. It’s a decision we never regretted. Our wedding day was beautiful and memorable. Thank you to Joe and all the Bella Collina staff for helping to make our day perfect.
Kristin , married on 04/28/2017
Bella Collina is a fairy tale venue with the sweetest staff around to make sure your day runs PERFECTLY! If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further!! When I first found Bella Collina online, just by the looks of it I assumed we couldn't afford it. For months we looked around touring other venues considering budget, accommodations included, site staff at each venue, rain plan options (outside wedding desired), and the overall beauty of each place. The value of services you receive for your budget here is undeniably better than any other package in the Triangle area! I say this because I compared! I say this because given our budget we would not have been able to have some of the items or vendors we had our wedding without Bella Collina's expertise and vendor relationships! And let's be honest, there is NO WHERE in the Triangle area that has the WOW factor like Bella Collina either! It is STUNNING!!! We do not even live in the area. We choose to have a wedding 1.5 hours from our home because of the beauty at this venue and the goodness in the hearts of the people running it. Pictures will help you understand how beautiful this place is from the outside, but you have to go see it for yourself. More so, go meet the people! The staff at Bella Collina have figured out the most efficient way to make your day about you all while supporting you during the wedding planning process as if you are the only one getting married there! It is truly remarkable how close and appreciative you grow to feel to the staff and vendors that work through Bella Collina. Bella Colina is AMAZING and truly the single best decision we made in the wedding planning process. You will be so thankful for choosing Bella! No matter what pops up, Bella Collina staff and vendors will take care of you to ensure you have the best day of your life at your wedding! So often I still find myself wondering if that was our wedding. It was PERFECT - our fairy tale!
Barry , married on 05/13/2017
Superb customer focus, premium levels of professionalism and proactive responsiveness is alive and thriving at Bella Collina! If you are looking for a once in a life time experience for your wedding and reception, you owe it to yourself to sit down and share your vision with Joe at Bella Collina. It is the venue where visions come to life! The night before our wedding, we were looking at a less than favorable weather forecast. Joe assured us the team at Bella Collina would be able to accommodate us with a shift to the beautiful indoor facility. We were disappointed but quickly saw the shift would be transparent to us in its implementation and it will still be wonderful. The next day the clouds began to break, Joe felt we could still have an outdoor wedding on his beautiful deck overlooking the stunning view of the lake. In what seemed like minutes, chairs were in place and things were beginning to come together. It was a compromise but the essence of an outdoor ceremony seemed to be happening after all. We went to our bride and groom quarters and began getting ready and preparing for our preliminary photo and video sessions. However, with the Bella Collina staff, our vision was still foremost in their minds. A final shift in the weather occurred while we were getting ready and despite the amount of work that had already taken place, Joe made one final shift in the setup. Instead of rationalizing a decision based on the amount of work or the time to implement, he maintained a focus on what we wanted. In no time, our vision appeared after all. Almost magically, we looked out on the beautiful lawn with the shimmering lake as its background, and our vision was nearly complete -- only our guests were missing. Professional to the highest level, top notch value and always flexible to our needs . . . a wonderful group to work with. Surpassed all our high expectations. We think of them of our friends now and hope you will too.
Liz , married on 04/29/2017
From the moment you drive up to the venue, you're in love! Joe and his team are simply the best! They've thought of every detail and anticipate things you can't even imagine. With their help, the wedding turned out to be as close to a fairy tale as possible. We still have friends and family calling us to tell us just how beautiful everything thing turned out. The only downside is that the day goes by too quickly and we wish we could rewind and do it all over. The staff at Bella make you feel like family and are there to ensure everything goes smoothly!
Xin , married on 03/18/2017
I love Bella Collina. They gave us an awesome wedding. We were out of state. Joe helped us take care of all the details. We cannot appreciate more!
User6612892 , 2+ years ago
When you think of a fairy tale wedding, Bella Collina Mansion screams dream wedding! I am beyond pleased with not only how beautiful the house is but how wonderful everyone has been to work it. From the owners of the house to all the vendors we have met. Bella Collina knows how to make a bride and her fiancé happy. Such an affordable and stress free process.
User7335155 , 2+ years ago
This venue is amazing. Joe and his staff are extremely professional and very helpful with whatever you may need. They are also extremely flexible with your plans and what you would like for your wedding. They provide alternatives due to inclement weather so that is one less worry. With the lake and the estate you are guaranteed to have great photos and amazing scenery. I encourage using their recommended vendors as they have been there numerous times and will make your planning much easier. I highly recommend this venue!
Teresa A. , married on 09/16/2016
They always say you’ll find what you’re looking for in the last place you look. Our daughter had come home to visit from Wilmington, NC for the weekend. After searching, unsuccessfully, all weekend for a unique wedding venue, she decided to stay over until Monday and check out a place she’d heard about in Stokesdale, NC. She knew she wanted an outdoor wedding and to get married by the water, but the beach just wasn’t private enough. Driving up to the Bella Collina Mansion, the woods just opened up to what appeared to be a Tuscan version of “Cinderella’s Castle”. From the moment her eyes fixated on this breathtakingly beautiful mansion with gorgeous lake backdrop, she knew without a shadow of a doubt this was it. From the day of interviews with vendors to orchestrating a flawless ceremony and reception, Joe and his exceptional staff were completely in tune with Cameron and Phillip’s vision. From beginning to end, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. If you’re looking for a perfect venue, look no further than Bella Collina Mansion. You won’t be disappointed. Bella accommodates both indoor and outdoor weddings so there’s always a back up plan in the event of bad weather. We heard, almost unanimously , from all our guests that it was the most beautiful wedding they ever attended. This is much credit to Joe, his staff and vendors. Everything was spot on and they were always there to answer any questions and happy to accommodate our requests. What a wonderful memory we all share of a magical romantic evening! Second to none – Bella Collina mansion is one hidden gem!
Cameron , married on 09/16/2016
We loved our special day at Bella Collina! Joe, his mom and Erin made the process so smooth and easy we didn't have to worry about a thing. Planning a wedding from out of town can be tough but they've got you covered! If you book with Bella Collina, no way they will let you regret it!
Hannah , married on 11/05/2016
The staff at Bella went above and beyond all of our expectations. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted at the door and felt like part of the Bella family. Joe and his staff are highly professional and there to make your dreams come true. Don't hesitate to ask questions or make request. Joe can make it work!
Jocelyn , married on 11/12/2016
This place is beautiful down to the smallest details. Joe and his staff really do have event coordination down to a science so your wedding day will be absolutely perfect. If you want a stress free wedding day this is your venue. One important thing that we really loved was how much communication there was between each vendor to ensure a smooth event on the day of.
Tara , married on 10/28/2016
Everyone at Bella Collina was amazing to work with. They truly care about you and your day and go the extra mile every step of the way to make your day as special as you dream of. All of the vendors were easy to work with, very responsive and flexible. We could not have had a more perfect day! Even when we forgot our sparklers, Joe was able to step in so we could still have our grand exit! Thank you Bella for making our dream wedding absolutely perfect for us and our families!
Rachel , married on 09/23/2016
Bella Collina is absolutely breathtaking! From the moment we stepped out of the car, my husband and I knew that this was where we wanted to get married. We toured many venues but after we saw Bella there was no need to look any further. After selecting this venue everything was perfect from start to finish. The staff at Bella Collina are wonderful to work with and the simplicity behind the wedding planning was one of my favorite parts. We were connected with many preferred vendors in an all inclusive package that made our wedding planning simply stress free. The day of the wedding went very smoothly and my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing thanks to the entire staff at Bella! What more could you ask for out of a venue? All of my guests loved it and are still talking about it. Our wedding was really magical and I highly recommend this venue to everyone. You simply won't regret it. .
Crystal , married on 09/24/2016
Words can't even describe how amazing it was to work with Joe and his team at Bella Collina. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and the venue itself is breathtaking! We got so many compliments on the venue and how gorgeous everything was. From day 1, Joe helped us with everything and assured us that our wedding would be nothing but perfection. He wasn't kidding. From giving us amazing vendors to choose from, to providing a timeline for us and making sure our wedding day ran smoothly, we can't thank him and his staff enough! This was truly the best experience and I would pick this place over and over again. Thank you Bella Collina for making our wedding day so amazing. It was everything that we wanted and more.
Madison , married on 09/18/2016
Joe and his team are very professional and make sure things are perfect for your wedding. They get down the details that you do not think of. Rain or shine you do not have to worry about anything because they "Got you". Awesome team, beautiful place, awesome everything!
Kaylea , married on 08/26/2016
Bella Collina was nothing but amazing! It was such a great experience and Joe and his staff are incredible people and so helpful! The all inclusiveness was such a relief and was stress free when planning. It seriously is the only way to go when finding a venue! Our wedding was the best day of our lives, it was perfect!
Nicole , married on 07/31/2016
Our wedding was nothing short of perfect. Joe and his staff are top notch...they think of everything. Having the process laid out and choosing almost all of the vendors needed for the wedding is such a relief and makes the wedding plan fun.....not stressful. Joe is honest about every detail you share with him.....he knows what works and what doesn't. The day of the wedding is so much fun......my whole bridal party wants to do it over again. It was nothing short of amazing.
User6505494 , 2+ years ago
Awesome place. Tons of options and add ons to make your wedding special and one of a kind.
Melissa , married on 12/12/2015
Everything was absolutely amazing. The venue was beautiful; many of my guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they've been to. Joe is flexible, helpful, and thinks of everything. He'll make sure you're not forgetting anything. The Day of Interviews is great; you meet and interview all of your potential vendors in one day, and make your decisions. All of the homework is done for you, and you know you are getting quality vendors. Joe coordinates everything day-of, from directing people down the aisle to coordinating and contacting vendors. I would recommend a million times.
Deborah , married on 11/21/2015
Wonderful experience! Absolutely perfect day!
Kinsley , married on 10/02/2015
When I started looking for places to have my wedding my list was really long and not very organized. I went and looked at Bella Collina within the first week of looking and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It was just something about the Mansion that completely took my breathe away. I said from there on out this was were I wanted to say "I Do" and have my magical day. I went back several times and looked and reviewed things and the entire time Joe and all the Bella staff were completely helpful. I found out that that this was a venue where I picked my caterer, florist, DJ and photographer and I was really in then!! I went and secured my date and placed my deposit from there. I cannot tell you how incredibly wonderful it was to have the stress taken off of my shoulders when I went to book my vendors. Bella does a thing called "Day of Interviews" and let me tell you it was the best thing I think they could have came up with. You schedule a day with Bella and you sit down and interview 3 vendors of each that you need and then you pick which vendor that you want. They have hundreds of vendors and they pick which ones they think fits the couple the best. I was able to pick my vendors all in one day which was completely stress free for me and my husband. From there on out Bella was right there by my side with anything I needed to make my day 100% perfect. It ended up raining on my wedding day...By no means did I want that but, it ended up being the most perfect wedding with BEST RAIN pictures ever! I absolutely wouldn't have rather chosen anywhere else to have my dream day. Joe and the entire staff at Bella were wonderful and made my wedding day flawless. I cant thank them enough for my experience and I would absolutely recommend Bella to anyone want to have a perfect wedding as well as the perfect planning.
Melissa , married on 10/30/2015
Bella Colina is truly a magical place that you will not find anywhere else. They are there with you every step of the way to ensure that your wedding day turns out how you have always imagined it--plus more! It is the most beautiful place and they have already selected some of the best professionals that you get to further choose to be your caterer, photographer, dj, videographer, and florist. I can't imagine having my wedding anywhere else. Once you see the place for yourself, you will understand the magic that is Bella Colina!
Christina , married on 08/15/2015
Bella Collina Mansion is the best venue location to have a wedding or any type of celebration. My husband and I held our wedding at this venue and everything from the scenery, to the provided wedding vendors to the breathtaking location in it self makes the venue amazing. Bella Collina is its own Tuscany getaway that is tucked away in the hidden peeks of NC and I couldn't ask for a better experience for my wedding. Your vendors are provided for you, no searching on your end is needed. Every vendor we worked with from ALS Photography, to Chef Michaels our Cater, to our DJ Tyler with Anything music, to our florist Soft Touch Flowers and our Videographer Armin, gave us nothing but perfection, energy, and class not only on our wedding day but throughout the whole process. Joe, the owner of Bella Collina is amazing. He makes you feel at ease, he calms you down when you feel stressed and he knows what he is doing. If you have your wedding here, you will have nothing to worry about as Joe has everything under control. I wish I could get married here every year, just for the location, the experience and the awesome people we met during the process. Bella Collina hands down is the best wedding venue to get married at or host an event or celebration.
Britney , married on 09/06/2015
Bella Collina was phenomenal! After seeing the venue in Triad Wedding magazine, my mom and fiance went to look at it in person. They both called me raving telling me this was defiitely "THE spot". Once I got to see it I could only agree. Joe, the person who owns the place and helps coordinate each event there was perfect. There was no need for a separate wedding coordinator. Joe is familiar with each vendor that comes through and the lessons learned from each wedding. We could not have pulled off what is considered one of the most epic weddings if it was not for him. Every step of the way, he made what is a stressful process not stressful. The day of the wedding went perfect. Everything was outside, the weather beautiful, and the view amazing. People are still raving about the wedding weeks later. The best choice I made besides marrying my husband was doing so there and sharing the location with friends and family.

The Bella Collina Mansion is gorgeous and unforgettable, but the real value of the place lies within the staff, especially Joe. My Indian wedding had many different components, ceremonies, and events happening at once, and since Bella Collina had never hosted an Indian wedding before, I was a bit apprehensive going in. But all my doubts were ill-founded. From answering all my questions to coordinating all my vendors (preferred and outside) to making sure everything was in place and on-time for the wedding and reception, Joe and his staff were the backstage magicians I needed to make my Indian wedding memorable, epic, fun, and as stress-free as possible. I also appreciate that they took the time to really understand my vision for the wedding and fulfill it to the best of their ability. They really take care of you at this place – and going with this venue was the best decision I could have possibly made for my big day.
User5295539 , 2+ years ago
All Vendors were amazing. The wedding ran as smoothly as ever. The views were fantastic. Everyone we worked with was exceptional. All our guests talked about how amazing it was and how it was the best wedding they have ever attended. Thank you to bella collina, Joe, and the rest of the staff. It was awesome.
Nakia , married on 05/23/2015
I am having Bella Collina withdrawals! It has been exactly two weeks since our PERFECT day at Bella Collina and everyone is still talking about how amazing our wedding was! From beginning to end, the experience of being a Bella Bride was a dream come true! The staff at Bella really did everything they could to make our day as special as possible and as stress-free as possible (I did not worry about a single thing!). The day of interviews was so much fun and really made everything a reality. The fact that we were able to choose from the best of the best vendors in the area (and the country!) was awesome! The final product reflected that they are in fact the best! All of the vendors did an amazing job and were huge contributors to making our day at Bella so special! I felt like a princess the entire day of the wedding! The ceremony was beautiful and very well coordinated and we loved seeing everyone dancing on the deck, having the time of their lives at the reception! My husband and I truly feel like choosing Bella Collina as our venue was the best decision we could've made. The entire experience was stress-free and to top it off, the venue is absolutely breath-taking! There is no better place to have your wedding than Bella Collina! I wish we could do it all over again. As a little girl, you imagine what your perfect wedding day will be like. Our wedding was everything I have ever imagined and more! I still feel like it was a dream! Thank you so much Bella Collina... we love you! - Nakia & Robert

Selina , married on 09/12/2014
After searching extensively for the perfect wedding venue, my fiance and I finally found the place that we envisioned for our wedding day. We both could not agree on one venue until we saw the Bella Collina. Upon entering the mansion, we immediately knew that it was most definitely the place for us. Like any wise couple should do, we refused to make a decision too quickly. Although the place was one of the loveliest venues that we have seen, we decided to base our decision on the services that were offered and its price of course. After meeting the Bella Collina staff and observing their devotion to quality service, we had no doubts about this venue. This place was not only beautiful with impeccable views, but the staff was certainly dedicated to helping us create a magical and unforgettable event. We were highly impressed with Bella Collina's service that came with a very affordable price! We quickly chose our venue when we witnessed the effort that they put into their weddings. There was no need to hire a wedding planner or a coordinator because they did it all. The stress of planning a wedding was removed instantly our "day of interviews". All within one day, Bella Collina allowed us to meet remarkable photographers, caterers, disk jockeys and florists. The vendors that were introduced to us were phenomenal and were also dedicated to making our day magical. The elegant mansion overlooking Belews Lake is the perfect venue for those seeking an elegant and romantic atmosphere. Also, it is the venue for those who are interested in all inclusive wedding packages that cover almost everything that is needed for a perfect wedding. But, most importantly, Bella Collina is the right venue for those who desire committed service that will certainly exceed their expectations.

If you want a first-class wedding that people will be talking about for years to come, look no further than Bella Collina Mansion. At first look you will be impressed with the mansion and gorgeous views of Belews Lake, but you will be even more impressed once you start planning with the vendors that Bella Collina has so carefully chosen. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect and the staff at Bella Collina Mansion made sure of that!

Bella Collina is not just a gorgeous venue... it's an event... it's a family. The staff provides wedding planning with all the i's dotted and all the t's crossed. From the "day of interviews" where you interview and choose your caterer, DJ, photographer, florist (et al) to that final special day, every detail (and I mean EVERY) is taken care of to perfection. To be a Bella Bride (and groom) is to be a part of a special family.

Joe and the ENTIRE family at Bella Collina are PHENOMENAL. Where do I even begin? My first impression of the venue was "WOW, so where do we sign this deal at??". Yes, the place is THAT good. Joe knows exactly what he's doing. As a younger bride, still finishing up my Bachelors, I had a lot going on with work, school and a wedding. I kid you not, the wedding planning process (that once intimidated me), was a BREEZE. Every single vendor I met on my day of planning was spectacular- making my decision to choose only one person very difficult. What is a "day of planning" you may ask? It is a full day of interviewing candidates for your florist, caterer, DJ and photographer; spent at the beautiful mansion itself! Who wouldn't love to spend a full day surrounded by such elegance? Once I chose one person for each category, Joe and Sher went straight to work. Coordinating with the vendors, letting them know every detail of the soon-to-be best day of my life to date. Communication between vendors, Joe/Sher and I was always organized and clear, so that everyone was on the same page. So fast forward to my wedding day - that's literally what it felt like since it came before I even knew it - I was not worried about A THING. Joe had my itinerary ready so that I knew what was happening and when. He and Sher and the entire staff were there throughout my entire wedding and reception, making sure every single detail was perfect and running smoothly. And it was. I wish I could relive that day over and over again. They made my special day so much more than that and I am forever grateful to them. We are a Bella family! Who wouldn't want to come join it?!?

Bella Collina was the perfect place to have our wedding! This venue is an all inclusive package. Joe has created and maintained a wonderful place to share with family & friends! My husband and I were able to actually sit back and relax at some points during our planning process because they make everything so easy. Everything is taken care of! The venue sits on the Belews lake and has an absolutely wonderful scenery which makes for great pictures! Our families had the best time and 2 weeks later, everyone is STILL ranting and raving at how much fun they had and how well put together everything was!

We saw the Bella Collina mansion online last spring. We decided to take a tour, though we weren't even engaged yet. Driving up was like pulling into a hidden treasure. Joe gave us a great tour where we were able to visualize what our perfect day would be like. We had secured a date before we left! We were engaged a couple weeks later, and ready to plan our dream day. The day of interviews went great, and we loved all our vendor choices. A few months later my fiance' and I found out we were expecting our first little one. I was terrified we would not be able to still get married, as our date was 4 weeks before my due date. I called and immediately we set up a meeting. After explaining our situation, they told us they would take care of EVERYTHING, and they did! We moved the wedding up 4 months with all our same vendors overnight! What a weight lifted off! Three months later we arrived at Bella Collina for our wedding day. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect day. Thank you to ALL the staff at Bella Collina for making our day one we will never forget!

Bella Collina is an outstanding venue! Nested on the shore of a privet area of Belews Lake in Stokesdale, North Carolina, the mansion transports you to a European setting. Owners and staff are professional, knowledgeable and service oriented event planners. Everything flowed perfectly under their supervision. I will not hesitate in recommending Bella Collina. It is ideal for any type of event.
