My wonderful friend Erin Taylor got ready at Belle and this is what she had to say!! Thanks Brett and Jessica photography! http://brettjessica.com
I fell in love with the space and light in this venue when seeing photos online and it did not disappoint when I saw it in person. The location is key. A lot of our friends were staying downtown as the majority of our wedding guests traveled to be with us and they could walk to the Belle Vue from their hotels/airbnb's/bnb's. It is also SO close to the wedding venues in Wilmington and also restaurants (because food is important!) It is a dream space for photographers to shoot in with the natural light and white and brick walls. There is SO MUCH SPACE that we could comfortably (14 women) all get ready (and they have salon chairs and outlets which is so awesome for hair and makeup), lounge around and hang out there all day, which is what we did. We had both our breakfast and lunch there prior to the wedding. Best of all I got to have my pug Oscar there with me as well! (thanks Ray!) They also helped me out with music when I forgot my jack adapter cable (Thanks Kelly!). They made me feel so comfortable and I have had a few of the ladies tell me their favorite part of the wedding day was getting to hang out all day leading up to the ceremony, something that could not have been comfortably done in a hotel room or even our home and we were able to do at the Belle Vue. It really set the tone to our wedding day in the best way possible.
