    What a perfect day! My husband and I got married at Le Belvedere on Saturday, July 8th. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the food is amazing! Jessica and her team are amazing. We booked Le Belvedere over 1. 5 years ago and we couldn't be happier. Jessica and Kyle were great to answer all of our questions! I would recommend this venue to anyone! Thank you! :)

    We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue! Le Belvedere was not only stunning, but the owners (Jessica and Kyle) are amazing to work with. They really made everything so stress free and were super flexible with any of our plans or recommendations.
