Welcome to Il Bella Gardens, an elegant wedding & event venue nestled on 20 wooded acres in the foothills of Stanly County, North Carolina just 30 minutes from Charlotte, North Carolina.  There is something overwhelming about sitting in the beautiful “Outdoor Gardens” as  the hummingbirds and butterflies flutter through the gardens and the melodious sounds of nature undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of being in the city.    As you relax in our gardens, let us take the worry out of your wedding planning as we help you create the wedding of your dreams at our idyllic country setting. Professional wedding planning is included in many of our affordable packages.

Il Bella Colonna
Il Bella Gardens features a Romantic open-air columned Pavilion which can seat up to 250 people with a dance floor. Shear drapery between the columns adds an extra touch of elegance. The edged oak ceiling is adorned with ceiling fans for those balmy Southern summer events. While recessed dimmable lighting help to set the ambiance.

Il Bella Villetta
The beautiful enclosed cottage can be used for gatherings such as wedding showers, baby showers, rehearsal dinners, business parties and more. Il Bella Villetta can seat up to 75 people inside and on the cobblestone patio.  The cottage includes a prep kitchen and bathrooms. What Southern cottage would be complete without a rocking chair porch and many opportunities for story telling!
