  • Bella Events were top class from beginning to end! Everything went off without a hitch. Special shout out to Stephanie who killed it for us! Bella did our catering, cake, rentals, and coordinating and took all the anxiety and worrying away from our big day. Great family owned/operated business who we'll recommend to anybody. They're level of attention and service is fantastic. Food was great, cake was beautiful, and coordinating perfect! Thanks again Raul, Stephanie, Gisela, and your whole team for helping us have the most magical day of our lives!.

  • My husband and I are so happy we hired Bella Events for our catering for our wedding. Raul the owner and his team went above and beyond to make sure our event was special and the food was amazing! Definitely a hit with all our guests. We loved them so much we are looking forward to our next event so we can hire them again. Raul is also the owner of Mambo’s and we love visiting the restaurant and eating their delicious food there. Such a fantastic group of people, very family oriented feel. If you wish to have a stress free wedding, hire Bella Events.

  • Raul & Marisela made this wedding better than I could have dreamed of! even days after the wedding, everyone could not stop talking about how delicious the food was, it was so good some even went up to get seconds and thirds. The cake was so beautiful AND sinfully good, whereas I've been to some weddings where the cake is pretty but tastes dry, or looks hideous but is yummy, Bella's knocked it out of the park. This team truly went above and beyond to make this wedding come together, from every recommendation, decor, even to the tiniest details, they made sure it was perfect. I'm an indecisive and nervous bride but they helped us every step of the way, even up until the day before during some last minute changes. Hands down, best day ever.

  • Bella Events - Raul Arias & Marisela Gonzalez - are absolutely outstanding wedding planners. My husband and I were recently wed as an out of state couple (California to Florida) and Raul made sure we were taken care of from the beginning through the breakdown of equipment following the wedding. He is extremely competent, knowledgeable, kind and meticulous. He was our main point of contact and an invaluable asset for our event. I highly recommend Bella Events for any wedding planning, DJ or bar tending services. He also caters events and graciously loaned us additional items for our wedding that were not included in our equipment rental. He truly took care of all logistics and issues before, during and after our wedding. Raul gave me and my husband a stress free, memorable and enjoyable day.

  • Raul and Marisela are wonderful! From the food tasting, to planning, to the final event. Everything went smooth and without incident. The food was amazing, the servers were totally professional and pleasant. I even text Marisela at the last minute about bringing some extra items and was accommodated without hesitation. My guests raved about Raul, Marisela and their team. Great prices too!

  • Our wedding would not have happened if it wasn't for Raul and Marisela. We originally met with them for catering services, but added Wedding Planning services after our first meeting because we loved them so much. We had a long engagement and got very close to Raul and Marisela because they are such wonderful people. They are fantastic at communicating, attentive to your needs and worries, and great at keeping you on track. First, the food is AMAZING! Not your typical wedding food at all. Everything was flavorful, the meat was cooked perfectly, and I wish I could have their Chicken Cordon Bleu and Mashed Potatoes every single night for dinner. Many brides have said they didn't get to eat on their wedding day, but Marisela made up plates for us and brought them to our table to make sure we ate. In regards to the planning, they did whatever they could to make all of my ideas come to life, or kindly explained why something else may work better based on their experience. The care ...

  • My husband and I were extremely happy with Bella Events Jax from day 1! They are professional and casual all at the same time. The food was DELICIOUS! and the staff was amazing! It was a true pleasure working with Marisela and Raul, they are both very personable, wonderful people. I would recommend them to cater any event that you have, they catered our Wedding Reception, I can't say enough good about them! Thank you so much for all the help, advice, and how at ease you made us feel! P.S. Also Gisela who makes cakes for Bella Events is amazing! The cake was beautiful and so VERY DELICIOUS!! Thank you Gisela :)

  • I cannot rave enough about Raul, Marisela and their team! They were amazing from beginning to end. They went above and beyond with every single detail. Marisela is so sweet and nice and super helpful. She checked on me frequently and made sure everything was taken care of. Raul went over every detail in the end and made some suggestions on additions, and I could not be happier with the end results! They were both so wonderful to work with and seemed like they truly care about your entire experience and wanted to make everything perfect. I am so happy with my decision to use this company mainly because of the amazing customer service, but the food was absolutely amazing and so were the deserts!

  • We couldn't have been happier with Bella for our catering and linen rentals. Raul and Marisela sat with us and went through our budget line by line, slashing and adding until we got exactly what we wanted within our budget. We decided to book the second we left--we even cancelled our 2 remaining catering inquiry appointments so we could secure our booking. They helped us pick linens and design our tables, and Raul personally found a way to feed 80 people like kings on a shoestring budget. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone. From initial meeting to day of service, everything was fantastic. Raul and Marisela are professional yet still extremely personable and I felt comfortable in their capable hands. My reception was perfect thanks to the wait staff and amazing food. Our guests could not stop raving about it. Thank you guys so much from Megan and Robert!!

All our quest loved the food and DJ Pristean got everyone out on the dance floor. Raul and Marisela were always one step ahead of what we needed. They were a bog part of making our wedding day a big success. We highly recommend them and are so grateful for making our wedding day a remarkable one. Thank you Bella events!!!!

  • Raul and Marisela did SO MUCH for us during our wedding planning process, and they made everything come together perfectly on the day of. We used Bella for coordination, catering, and music. Having them do all of the big things at our wedding made everything so much easier. I can't imagine having had to manage all of that planning on my own. It was worth every penny and I was more than thrilled with how our wedding turned out. Everyone always says you should expect at least one thing to go wrong on your wedding day, but ours was absolutely perfect (as far as I know!)! I would definitely recommend them to anyone getting married. They are the best!

  • WOW! Is what I have to say for Bella Events! From the moment I spoke to Raul over the phone until the day of our wedding was intoxicating in the best way possible. It took me too long to write this review and I hope in the absence it did not deter anyone away. Brian and I were impressed just from the tasting. We has requested certain items on the menu but Raul gave us more options when we weren't sure and let us take some food home. Right then and there after his professionalism and expertise and not to mention the food was mouthwatering we knew this was it for our catering. Very price savvy too. As you know me and every other bride are price conscientious and this was right where we needed it to be. Throughout the process until the wedding everything was so perfect that we even added Raul's Mom's cake for our wedding cake. We had mini cupcakes and two small regular cakes and she did an amazing job especially after we forgot our cake stand at the wedding (Whoops!). Fast forward to the ... Read more
