I fell in love with A'Bulae the moment I stepped through the doors! The open space with huge windows was exactly what I was looking for in a venue to hold my wedding reception. Making an appointment to go see the venue was so easy, and Jenna gave me a great, organized, non-rushed tour! All of the pricing and information on amenities included was given to me right after the tour. It was nice to know what all the costs where right up front and not be surprised by anything during the planning process. Jenna and Nancy did a great job answering all my questions that led to my decision to have my wedding at A'Bulae and during the entire planning process - they responded professionally and quickly, always within a day, to emails and phone calls.

Shane, the on-site digital coordinator was so easy to work with and always gave us great direction and advice on digital content we wanted to display during the wedding. The planning form was awesome - so easy to fill out and very organized! Shane did a great job taking our ideas and bringing them to life on the screens. I just had to tell him what color scheme I wanted, and he did the rest of the work. It turned out really nice and I loved it all.

Jenna and Nancy really went out of their way to ensure a smooth wedding day for us. Usually there is no parking attendant on site until an hour before the event, but all the staff was so accommodating to the wedding party and family arriving early, and had staff present to let people into the parking ramp over 4 hours prior to the wedding. This was super convenient, as there was a Saints baseball game that same day at the time of the wedding. I really appreciated the extra effort A'Bulae made to ensure everything went smoothly on the wedding day. They were all a pleasure to work with and I had the best time at my wedding! All my guests absolutely loved the venue and were very impressed by the professionalism of the staff and guards.

There is no question this venue was specifically developed to host spectacular events. The inclusions, offerings, set up, planning, organization, execution....EVERYTHING related to this location was well thought out and organization. The team working there was the most professional vendors I have ever had the pleasure of working with, they went above and beyond to assure everything was perfect, and in most cases, I didn't have to ask. I really cannot say enough good things about A'Bulae, and am so thankful I choose to have them host such an important day for my and my new husband.

The only disappointment I had was the digital services offerings. My events digital services were not executed accordingly the night of the event, so a little value was lost there, but it could have been worse. But that was a disappointment and something that was really heavily sold up front. But it didn't ruin my night, it just made it more difficult for my guests to get certain information I had planned for them to get through the digital messaging offerings. But they didn't really know what they missed out on, but I did. That was a shame, but overall, happy with the venue.

We didn't have our wedding at A'bulae, but Jenna coordinated our wedding and she is absolutely AMAZING. We hired her for day of, but she met with us three different times just to make sure everything was going smoothly (even at last minute when I started to panic the week before the wedding!) She has a very calming quality about her, and despite being a crazed bride I left every meeting with her feeling so good and organized. Her attention to detail makes it so easy to feel carefree in the final planning stages and more importantly on your big day.

The day of my wedding was perfection - everything I dreamed of and more and Jenna was a very big part of that. She really listened to me and my ideas, what I wanted and didn't want, and I never had to worry about something getting done because she was always two steps ahead of everyone else. From her texts in the morning, to seeing her be the last person in the venue at the end of the night she made everything amazing and stress free. And with a wedding party of 16, she had her hands full but she did the best job corralling everyone and directing the show. I know I keep saying amazing, but that is what she is! So nice and personable and smart! You need Jenna in your life, I promise! Absolutely worth every single penny.

This venue represented who we are as a couple, and we continue to talk about how flawless our wedding went every day since. The stunning bridal suite, chandeliers, wood accents, high-tech technology, rooftop views, dedicated staff, and massive dance floor truly made for the perfect day, and the perfect wedding. To top it off, being the first July 4th wedding at A’BULAE, our guests could see fireworks being shot off from 14 different surrounding locations which added not only excitement, but romance to the night. Thank you to the staff of A’BULAE, Mintahoe Catering, and Bellagala for being so engaged and enthusiastic on our big day, and for helping it run so smoothly. As a bride, I couldn't imagine a more seamless day.

A'Bulae is quite possibly one of the most beautiful places to get married that I have ever seen anywhere, but certainly is the best in the cities. About 10 months before my wedding day, I was still struggling to find the perfect venue and came to Bellagala in a panic to see if they could help. At this time, A'Bulae was under construction but was set to open a couple months before our wedding date. I was directed to talk to Nancy, the future A'Bulae Event Site Director, who gave me a tour of the space (which was just wooden pillars, dust, and construction equipment at the time, there weren't even walls). Even with that little amount to go on, Nancy did a fantastic job describing the place that would become A'Bulae and I decided to take a leap of faith and sign a contract before the space was even built, making us the first couple to be booked with A'Bulae! I would be lying if I said that A'Bulae met my expectations, it more than EXCEEDED them when everything was finally constructed. In addition to an absolutely beautiful building, I don't know what I would have done without Nancy, who was a HUGE support to me during the planning process. Nancy is someone who genuinely cares for her brides and wants to make their day as special as possible. Also, Nancy gave me fantastic recommendations for specific people to help with flowers, styling, DJing, etc. (If you can get Andrew as a DJ, DO IT!!) Every single person that I interacted with at A'Bulae was warm, caring and got to know me and my husband as a couple and not just as clients. On the big day, I felt like my friends were celebrating with me, not just my vendors! Overall, this venue has EVERYTHING that you could want and need for your wedding and eliminated any sort of wedding planning stress that I experienced before booking here!

The wedding planners at A'BULAE are amazing! I am the MOB (mother of the bride). My daughter lived out of state so we did a lot of planning via email/text. I met with staff at A'BULAE to go over all of the details of the reception. They were always accommodating and never said "we can't do that." If something was out of our price range, they would make suggestions of ways to do it that were in our budget. We used the bridal suite which I highly recommend for everyone using this venue. It is AMAZING and the bride and bridesmaids feel as special as they all should. We also used A'BULAE's sister company Bellagala for DJ, lighting, food, photography, and shuttle service back to the hotel. A'BULAE was very easy to work with, their timeliness in responding to questions was unbelievably quick, and they were very helpful with suggestions and ideas. When I asked my daughter after the wedding was over if it was everything she had hoped for, she said it was "a dream come true and more!" That is all a mom could ever ask for. Thank you, A'BULAE for being a part of her dream!

We decided to switch our venue to A'BULAE after already having another venue booked and could not have been happier with our decision! The place is absolutely stunning and unlike anything else in the area, and I can't even begin to say how many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to.The space has everything you could want for a wedding- it's huge, has floor to ceiling windows, state of the art technology and lighting, a beautiful bar and dance floor, and a rooftop patio with gorgeous city views. We were the second wedding held, and everything went off without a hitch- so many people worked so hard to make sure the day was stress free and perfect, and it absolutely was. And Nancy is the best to work with! She is responsive and on top of everything, and went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was everything we imagined. And it was! Thanks to A'BULAE, we had a dream wedding!

Jenna and Nancy were professional and help the day of our wedding, and during the planning. Because of the natural beauty of the space and the digital screens,s I didn't feel that much decorating was needed. 4 of our 5 digital messages/images got displayed during the evening.

The space is gorgeous- especially the ready rooms. My advice is to become a member of Forever Bride (free) which gave me 50% off the use of the ready rooms.

Since we couldn't get married on the roof my groom and I decided to arrange our ceremony on the dance floor. During planning it seemed like a good idea but if I were to do it again I would probably recommend arranging your ceremony in the dining room. It will allow for more space and a better view.
