Welcome to the Bella Collina Mansion!
Allow Us to Introduce Ourselves ...
The Bella Collina Mansion was built beginning in 2005 as Stokesdale's most impressive and elegant private home.
Because the Bella Collina Mansion is a private home, the mansion is available for public events on a limited basis. This limited availability combined with the extraordinary popularity of the Bella Collina can frequently make finding an available date quite challenging. But take heart. We will do everything we can to find the perfect date for your perfect wedding.
Why is our venue pricing so affordable? (Check out our pricing sheet as well for more details)
This is the one question we are asked most often and the answer is quite simple: The owners of the Bella Collina Mansion purposely made them that way. They want everyone to be able to enjoy the beauty and elegance of the home. In short, North Carolina's most elegant and romantic event location is also one of the most affordable. Now... the only problem is finding that date!
Weekday weddings happen quite often allowing the bride and groom to remain in budget and still give the wow factor of Bella Collina!.
Weekday pricing ~ $3,995.00
Weekday pricing deviates from our normal way of doing things, it becomes more of a "do it yourself" package, allowing you to save a ton of money. We offer you full access of the home minus our private areas. We will include the tables and chairs needed for your event. However, all of the other items needed for the event will need to be provided by you. Those items will consist of things like catering, photography, flowers and a DJ if you so choose. Rentals can be provided by Happy Rentz. Now if you would like us to help you with the planning - we are always available. If you choose to add some of the preferred professionals to your wedding, might we tempt you with this:
