You made it so easy! You provided a lot and made setup easy! Also it is a beautiful place. Booking was easy, as was setup, ordering and answering questions. You were very attentive and guided us through!

Once again, thank you for helping us create another wonderful Red Tie Gala. You and your staff did a great job, and we are so appreciative of your support and friendship. We wouldn't be able to continue to grow and do the things we do without people like you. We look forward to future collaborations with you.

It was fabulous to have the wedding and reception all in one place. We loved the ease of leaving the tuxes at the end of the night, the nice dressing room, great food and our beautiful outside wedding.

JP was great. He made sure everyone and everything was ready. Kaitlin was terrific in making sure the tuxes fit well. Wait/bar staff was courteous. It was easy to plan. The caterer we chose, Dostal, was fabulous! Everyone raved about how great the food was. The trees and waterfall were gorgeous. All went so well, my mom never gave anything a second thought. We absolutely do recommend bella sala!

The one-stop shop sold us everything from tuxes to wedding to reception. Bella sala was beautiful for
an October wedding. Staff very professional and organized. Food was great. Truly, we did not have to think about the "what ifs" or "What about this?" because it was all taken care of. Thanks for a wonderful and memorable day!

Everything went so smoothly on the wedding day - it could not have gone better. Everything was set up how we wanted it and the staff did a wonderful job helping the day go so well. We will be recommending bella sala because it is a beautiful place and the staff does a wonderful job working with you.

Bella sala is amazing! The venue recently got a facelift, and the space is more beautiful than ever. I especially loved having the gigantic Bridal Room to get ready. If you are looking for a chic yet rustic venue, this is the place for you. JP, the event manager, was always there to answer my questions. He made the process of switching dates easy. I couldn't be happier with having bella sala as my venue, and I would recommend it to all brides in the Iowa City/Tiffin/Cedar Rapids area.

I can't thank you enough for all of your help and patience during the planning and execution of my wedding!

bella sala event center provided an affordable and beautiful venue for both our wedding ceremony and reception. We are still so happy we chose such a beautiful place! The staff members were all excellent to work with in planning our wedding-from my dress, bridesmaid dresses, venue layout, staging, drink orders and overall communication-our experience was great! We were happy with our entire experience at bella sala. JP & Melissa were great with all of my many questions.

We've already recommended bella sala to several friends. We loved the option to have our entire wedding day experience in one location and enjoyed working with the kind and helpful staff. Thank you for helping make our wedding day unforgettable!

Lindsay & Jeremy

I just wanted to say thank you. At my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception, everything went well (except the Hawkeye game). The staff was very considerate and professional. I really appreciated it when JP came to me shortly before the wedding to inform me the cake had not arrived. Instead of upsetting Cecilia and adding to her stress, he came to me, and I don't think she even knew the cake was late. Thank you again for the wonderful day and great service.

Dan

It was very easy to work with bella sala. Nothing was complicated and all our questions were answered in a timely manner. JP was awesome - he was always very helpful & very accommodating with us and our guests. We were impressed with how clean the facility is. It's a beautiful venue in a great location!

Hollis & Michael

Everything was very nice and professional. The staff was very nice and helpful. Everything was great! I will recommend bella sala to my friends.

Cheryl

I really liked that the space was well maintained and clean. It didn't feel like I needed to decorate too much. It was easy to contact JP with questions, and he seemed very prepared in planning the details. I was very satisfied with the options we were given, and your pricing was reasonable, especially since you have reduced pricing options. It made a beautiful venue affordable for us.

Mariah & Jake

Thank you so much for all of your help and expertise-especially during the time of COVID.

Allison & Dayton

We started the day with the girls having hair and makeup done at bella sala in Tiffin, Iowa. This was the first wedding that we had photographed post renovation at bella sala, and man, have they done a great job of elevating that space! The outdoor grounds have always been beautiful, but now the interior has been dramatically updated to match...not only have the design aesthetics been upgraded, they have built a new bridal suite that is (in the words of Buddy the Elf) "Ginormous!"

What a beautiful building! What amazing hospitality and professionalism from JP and Bailey! Answered all my questions, decorated the hall beautifully and were so helpful the day of. So many compliments on how impressed everyone was of the venue! Even though we did a winter wedding and couldn't be out at the waterfall, we did get beautiful pictures out on the deck by it and they are out of this world!

Melissa & JP,
There aren't even words to express my thanks to both of you! You helped turn my daughter's wedding into a magical evening. It was absolutely stunning! You should be proud of your venue and the service you give!!! It has been a joy and honor to have met you both. I truly can't express how thankful I am that we had the wedding at bella!!

Patt & Stacy

Thank you for all your help in making sure our wedding reception was perfect. Lyndsie, we can't thank you enough for all your help - you were awesome to work with. Everyone enjoyed your venue, and it is a beautiful place for a reception.

Ashley & Tyler

We can't thank you enough for your guidance and coordination for our wedding reception. We are sincerely grateful for everything you did to make our day incredible!

Leah & Billy

Having the event at bella sala ensured that there was plenty of room. It was totally easy. Email sent - 1 meeting to sign contract - event done! I would totally recommend your facility. You are all so nice and the facility is beautiful.

Kathleen

The waterfall and decorated room looked amazing. Your venue is perfect, especially since people can go from the ceremony to reception without leaving. You ladies are so helpful as well. Anytime I needed something, one of the staff was willing to help. You also had the linens set up, which was a huge help and looked great! I forgot vases, and you did a wonderful job finding mason jars! The whole night was wonderful! I've already recommended you to multiple people!

Thank you so much!

Becky & Zach

The event was very easy for us! We didn't have to worry about much at all. J.P. rocked! Having a meeting with him helped ease anxiety and answered all my questions. The hall is beautiful. The price is reasonable and staff was easy to work with. I would recommend bella sala to my friends!
