  • Kim is such a wonderful person! She is extremely knowledgeable about the trade, keeps you on schedule so there's less stress, and always available to help last minute when something doesn't go as planned. She's even helped me sell things afterward! We have not a single regret. Love you Kim :)

  • As a wedding planner, caterer & cake maker in my spare time, I was a little concerned about handing over the reins to another person, but Kim surpassed all my expectations!! She knows what she is doing & will put you at ease on your Big Day!! I have been to plenty of venues & this one was by far my most favorite!! Plenty of photo ops & different locations to take photos. You won’t go wrong if you choose Il Bella for your wedding!! I hope to come back here when the next family member needs to get married!!

  • I could write a whole novel about how amazing Kim and Larry Mcllwaine and II Bella Gardens is. The hard work, love, and excellence they put into this wedding venue is one of the many reason I choose to get married at II Bella. Kim made sure I had the wedding of my dreams and that everything ran smoothly during the whole process. The location is breath taking and can be transformed in so many ways! Kim will help take care of all your needs, questions to where you as a bride can have the most magical day. I came into her office with a vision and she helped make my wedding a fairy tale dream. You can honestly tell they put their heart and souls into this place and it shows. Kim and Larry have become family to my husband and I and we will forever share all of life special moments with them. Il Bella and the Mcllwaines will always have a special place in our hearts.

  • Our son got married at Il Bella Gardens March 31st and we couldn’t have been more thrilled! We don’t know which was lovelier, the grounds and amenities or the couple that owns it. They had so much to offer in their package and it was such a treat to work with Kim and Larry. We would highly recommend this place to everyone!

  • Kim was amazing! Not only did the venue have many options as to where my ceremony could be held at but it also had a covered area for the reception that was invaluable. Kim helped plan everything and helped keep everything on schedule the day of. In my opinion she went above and beyond on the day of the wedding. It started raining less than an hour before the ceremony was scheduled to start and she immediately came up with a solution for the ceremony as well as where to put the live band that was originally set up outside. If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with an awesome planner, Il Bella is the place to go!

  • I had the most fun working with Kim at Il Bella Gardens. She is so passionate about what she does and it truly shows every time you meet with her. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. If you like the outside, country atmosphere this place is the absolute best. You will not find a venue better than this or someone better to work with then you will find at Il Bella Gardens.

  • Kim and Larry are ABSOULTELY AMAZING! From preparing for our wedding over a year in advance up until the day of the wedding everything ran the exact way I always dreamed! They made all my dreams come to life and I couldn't haven't asked for anything more. There was tons of decor I was able to use to ensure I didn't spend a lot of extra money buying stuff I wouldn't use again. Kim worked hard to ensure I stayed on top of planning my big day and ran everything behind the scenes to ensure my day was perfect! It was everything I wanted and more!

  • Kim and Larry were absolutely wonderful! Kim was there for us night and day through out our whole engagement. She helped me plan and visualized all of my ideas and not to mention, make them a reality. She was very professional and sweet. The venue was perfect, it had multiple sites on location to chose from for us to have the ceremony and the reception area was PERFECT! They even have a 5 bedroom house on site that we rented to stay in for the whole weekend! We couldn't have chosen a better location. Thank you Kim an Larry! -Love THE POPLINS
