The Chateau Bellevie was the perfect place for our wedding. Our family and friends complimented us for such magical venue. We had our ceremony outdoors and the reception indoors. It was all beautiful and elegant. Maria, the owner is such a kind and attentive hostess. She and her staff went all the way to meet our expectations. Maria's personality and love for what she does made us feel very comfortable. Every corner of this beautiful place is picture perfect. We will highly recommend it. My husband and I are thinking to go back for our anniversary.

Chateau Bellevie B&B is a beautiful venue for a wedding. The décor there is so breathtaking that you hardly even need a lot of wedding decorations because the venue is so beautiful on it's own. The staff is very professional and courteous. They provide you with everything needed to make your special day go as easy and smooth as possible. Maria worked with us and helped us to create the exact vision we had in mind for our wedding. I would highly recommend Chateau Bellevie to other couples looking for a venue to have their wedding.

Everyone at Chateau Bellevie is awesome! Maria worked with my budget and made sure the layout on my big day was just as we had planned. Chanel was absolutely fantastic! I don't know what I would've done without her. She made sure I was happy with everything and was always there to pitch in.
The food was delicious and the venue was beautiful! If you go with the Chateau, you will not be disappointed! I can't express how grateful I am to Maria, Chanel, and the rest of the team at the Chateau. I absolutely love it there!
PS- Maria has really good recommendations for everything from cake to photographers.

There are not enough words to describe how AMAZING Chateau Bellevie is! Our wedding was like a fairytale thanks to Maria and her team! The venue is GORGEOUS and was very intimate yet accommodated all our guests comfortably. It just doesn't get any prettier than the Chateau, and we had a hard time trying to figure out exactly where to get married because every room and outdoor space were so beautiful!

And the FOOD!!! I still get compliments from our guests how great the food was -- there was so much of it, and it was like dining at a fine restaurant rather than the usual cold, tasteless food you get at most weddings.

We also stayed in the honeymoon suite and what a treat that was! We were treated like royalty for our entire planning process, and everyone was so accommodating! Our wedding and reception were absolutely perfect and went off without a hitch thanks to Maria's experience and hospitality! We LOVE the Chateau!!!

Maria and her staff were wonderful to work with and the Chateau is a gorgeous venue. Maria is a wonderful cook, everyone at my wedding really enjoyed the meal. I was slightly concerned when we were not able to use off site catering, however once we attended Maria's tasting I knew whatever menu we decided on would be delicious. Further more, the day of wedding coordinator and Maria's staff were incredible. From the ceremony to the flow of the entire evening everything went off without a hitch. My family, husband and I were able to relax and completely enjoy our wedding. I absolutely recommend Chateau Bellevie B&B.

I would definitely recommend this beautiful venue to other brides. The building and the grounds are just stunning! I had my wedding there at the end of October, and roses in the garden were in full bloom while the leaves started to turn colors already. The owner of the venue and the staff were very helpful and professional. Maria truly wants your day to be special and beautiful, and goes above and beyond to make it happen. Thank you, Maria, for the flower decorations! Do take her advice on the food choices- the Italian wedding soup at the reception turned out to be a hit! I must give special thanks to the wedding coordinator, Hannah, for making my day so worry free. The Chateau also offers bed and breakfast option, which is rare in the area. One of the best memories of my wedding day was using the hot tub in the wedding suite and having the delicious breakfast the following day! Overall, I am extremely happy with my choice of the wedding venue, as it was worth every penny and provided many priceless memories.

This was an awesome venue. My wife did some searching in the background for venues and presented me with this one. We went there to have a meet and greet with Maria - and that's all it took. We had settled on the venue on the spot.

Gorgeous venue with the old-world feeling that sets up your wedding to be very intimate and personal. Maria, her husband, and her staff were phenomenal and did everything to accommodate our desires. The night was perfect - and all my friends were jealous they didn't get married in that venue.

I also want to highlight that the food was awesome. We did the stations option and we're so glad we did. Everyone thought the food was very tasty. Do try the dessert crepes! My only recommendation to future couples is to ignore your friends and family while you eat so you can get more of the good stuff in your stomach!

Oh, and we stayed in the Bridal Suite (or whatever it was called) and it was a grand room that gave us the space and privacy to retreat after the party was over. Recommend others to do the same.

In short I have no doubt in my mind we picked the right wedding venue and would do it over again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Maria for everything!

Maria was very responsive and accommodating (she even remembered I had been looking for sparklers, but did not find any, so she provided them for the end of the night). Mindy, the day of coordinator, was very helpful, attentive and professional. We chose the buffet stations and a lot of guests mentioned how good the food was. It is a great location for a small, intimate wedding ceremony and reception. I wish I had realized that guests would not be able to sit down during cocktail hour as we had many older guests. I would have asked Maria to make the dining area available had I known. It is a beautiful venue, but there are pluses and minuses to having the dining area and cocktail/dance area separated. It made the cocktail hour difficult for older guests as there was no seating and a lot of guests could not watch the dancing while seated. Also, Maria recommends having cake upstairs at the end of the event so many people had left early and missed cake cutting. I would have preferred to cut the cake just after dinner and everyone could have enjoyed it at their leisure while dancing was going on.

Hello johanna,
Thank you for having your wedding at the Chateau and for your review.
Throughout the wedding planning process, as well as in our final meeting when we discussed timeline and details, you have been given different options and suggestions, we have not made final decisions for you regarding the flow of your event. I am very sorry that some of the guests had to leave early; we actually offered them deserts before they were leaving with their little kids.
I hope you will be able to look back and treasure the memories of what was exceptional and beautiful about your special day.
Best to you and Chris in your marriage!
Maria

"=>"The Chateau Bellevie truly provided me with the wedding of my dreams and I will be forever grateful. The place is absolutely breathtaking and the staff go above and beyond for you to make sure your special day is absolutely perfect! Maria,
her daughter-in-law and coordinator Mindy were so attentive with my guests and myself. I sang to my husband at the beginning of my ceremony and was provided hot tea with honey and lemon and a straw not too mess my lipstick. Appetizers were brought to our suite right after the ceremony for my husband and myself so we wouldn't miss them while taking pictures. Maria and her staff made me feel special and important,
it was such a pleasure to work with pleasant people! I was completely stress free thanks to them. The food was amazing,
my friends and family are still talking about it! The Chateau Bellevie is a place where you spend one night and never want to leave! I enjoyed my wedding day and night along with an amazing breakfast in the morning. If you are looking for a beautiful unique venue with kind hearted people this is the place,
it was worth every single penny!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to celebrate our anniversary there!!!

The wedding was great. Maria really makes everyone feel like they are part of the family sharing her home. She went out of her way to listen to and incorporate our various suggestions. It was really great seeing small touches that we had mentioned in passing during our consultations being incorporated around the venue to add a little bit of an extra special touch. We had the pleasure of holding our rehearsal dinner at the Chateau as well. The food at the rehearsal and the wedding was great. A proper pre-wedding "feast" for the rehearsal, and great buffet stations at the reception. Everything is prepared fresh at the venue. Overall a great venue and a hidden gem for smaller intimate weddings.

The first time we visited the Chateau Bellevie we thought it would be the perfect place to get married. It was beautiful and Maria provided all of the decorations. Whenever we had a problem Maria tried to be flexible with us and help us out but often times it resulted in frustration. On the day of the rehearsal we were told there would be a wedding planner and there was but she was horrible. Her daughter Roxana used to be the wedding coordinator, but she is no longer there. We heard she was great but we didn't get to experience her unfortunately. The wedding coordinator just stood there during rehearsal and said whatever you would like and didn't speak up or even try to help. Many people told her she needed to take charge but she didn't. There were no chairs set up to represent where an isle would be and where the ushers needed to seat the guests. After I took charge and ordered people around my wife calmed down a little and things seemed to fall in to place but that shouldn't have been something I needed to worry about. On the day of our wedding our DJ saved us. DJ Delane Hayes was amazing, I recommend him to anybody getting married. He took charge of our ceremony and made sure people were introduced correctly and were told where to go. We were told that our dinner would only last about 50 minutes so that we would have time to dance but the dinner lasted about 2 hours and nobody told us we needed dinner to end, they just let it go and it took 30 minutes to get food after everybody had been seated.(We only had the place for 4 hours and that included a 45 minutes ceremony) We were told the food was great, we didn't get to go to the food tasting, but it wouldn't have mattered anyway because the food tasting was just a couple of months before our wedding so we couldn't have backed out even if we did get to taste the food. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. For the price of what we paid for the venue and the food I expected much better.

Chateau Bellevie B&B responded with the following comments:

Dear Laura & Ryan,
I need to express my regret that your wedding experience was not everything you expected, and that the coordination at the rehearsal disappointed you. I believe that the coordinator misread you and was trying to allow you to personalize your ceremony, instead of leading you into a more traditional kind. But, as you know, she did her job the day of the wedding, constantly trying to help you and the guests during the whole entire event.
The Chateau Wedding Package had included your Ceremony time, plus the four hour Reception, and we 100% respected our contract, but I can understand your frustration and that feeling that there is never enough time when you celebrate such a special occasion, time seams to slip away...
As we spoke before, your timeline was affected by the extended photography shots, and your guests had to wait quite a bit for your arrival at the dinner tables. The plated meal was served in a reasonable amount of time, but we never rush the guests during dinner, nor we feel appropriate to try to clear, while guests are still seated and eating.
I'm glad that you liked the DJ, he was wonderful, but I want you to know that we all worked together to keep things flowing according to your plan. Several of your guests, as well as family members, expressed their excitement and how much they enjoyed your wedding,the Chateau and the food.
While we don't take anything like this lightly, and we always strive for excellence, I hope that you will be able to look back and remember only the beautiful things and moments that made your wedding a very special event.
Sincerely,
Maria

Fantastic experience from start to finish! We knew when we visited for the first time that we didn't have to look any further. Our wedding day went so smoothly, and everyone loved the Chateau and the food. Maria and her team are so professional, kind, and detail oriented. Thanks for everything! We'll cherish the memories forever.

Our wedding at Chateau Bellevie was amazing. Maria was extremely accommodating and wonderful to work with. Her staff was very attentive and went above and beyond to make our special day an everlasting memory. Chateau Bellevie is a beautiful and elegant venue. Our wedding was very small (27 people) and we were afraid that the venue was too big but it turned out great. Guests were moving from one room to another as they went from the outdoor ceremony to the indoor cocktail hour to the dinner in the upstairs dining room. The bridal suite is beautiful and was perfect for the hours before the ceremony. All of the guests commented on the wonderful set up and the elegance of the Chateau. We highly recommend Chateau Bellevie and give it our highest marks.

I absolutely 100% suggest The Chateau Bellevie for your wedding venue. My wedding was perfect. Everyone complimented on how lovely the Chateau was, how nice the staff was and how fantastic the food was. It was the BEST food I have ever tasted. Maria is the most wonderful hostess/chef/owner/coordinator! She is so kind, and knowledgeable, and patient and so willing to help. She helped me with every detail, from the food, to the cake, flowers, decorating, even seating arrangements. Maria makes the Chateau as wonderful as it is. I cannot say enough about this place. It was so nice and beautiful, with such a lovely setting, inside and out. If you even think you might want to have your wedding here, think no more!!! This is the place! Trust me! It’s an amazing value for everything that you get, and whatever the coast…IT’S WORTH IT! Booking the Chateau made my wedding as easy and beautiful as I wanted it to be. We booked the Chateau less than 2 months before my wedding, and Maria helped me pull off a great night with great memories! I can’t say enough about this place, it’s as fantastic as it sounds, just go check it out!

Maria the owner of Chateau Bellevie is a perfectionist just like myself! She has created an atmosphere of luxury and romance . Every item in the chateau has a history to it. I had a party of a little over 50. I would say that would be max to be comfortable. It was the perfect venue for an intimate wedding. Maria is excellent with communication, patient, and has a genuine passion for was she does. It is a gift. She provides decor and linens. She made it so easy to plan from out of state. Last but not least, the food is so delicious! My guests took time to let me know! Included for those who stay at the chateau ( for us it was our parents and the pastor and his wife) is a delicious morning breakfast made especially by Maria and served in a sophisticated and luxurious fashion. We all were able to start the wedding day with a relaxing breakfast over conversation. Nothing was rushed. We had an amazing time and were very happy to end the night in her beautiful, ornate honeymoon suite. One last thing - there are MANY places to take beautiful photos in and out of the Chateau - just another plus! We couldn't have asked for anything more.

My wedding was beautiful and perfect. I was really glad that Maria at Chateau Bellevie was able to take care of pretty much everything for me. The food was amazing, the decorations were beautiful. I am so, so glad I found this venue. It was a little pricey (thanks dad!), and sometimes it took a bit longer to get a response than I'd have liked, but it didn't cause any issues so it wasn't a big deal at all. I wouldn't have changed a thing looking back on it!

There really aren't enough words to say how lovely it was to have our wedding at the Chateau Bellevie! Each room is so spectacular, you'll begin to think of creative things you can do just so you can utilize all the space. The grounds are amazing too - perfect for a beautiful outdoor wedding or stunning outside photographs.

But it’s not just an incredible place to get married - working with Maria was such a delight...she really became family to us. She was so great at finalizing all the details. We are from out of town and she was very helpful in assisting us in finding other local vendors. We really could not have asked for a better experience!! Everything from the ceremony to the reception to the honeymoon suite to breakfast in the morning was absolutely perfect. Even our guests couldn’t stop talking about what an amazing place it was. I would highly recommend the Chateau Bellevie to anyone looking for an intimate wedding or event venue! It will over-deliver any expectations you may have!

Chateau Bellevie is a beautiful and enchanted place and made our wedding day just a wonderful experience. We had discovered this place by accident over a year before our wedding and after the first food tasting we were hooked and booked it right away. We tried looking at other venues before but nothing came close to the European charm and attention to detail this place has; it is truly amazing. Since we booked the Chateau so far out I had lots of planning and details still to hatch out and Maria and Roxanna where very responsive to my needs and concerns. We visited Bellevie a few times before our wedding to go over some more planning where treated with kindness and reassurance from Maria each time; she was never in a rush to usher us out of the door. Maria made me feel like I was visiting family back home in Europe and I loved every minute I got to spend in this wonderful location. I would really recommend this venue to couples that are looking for a special place to have their intimate wedding in European style and class by a staff that is very proud of their place and has worked so hard to make this a special location.

Working with Marie and her daughter Roxy was an absolute delight. I cannot emphasis enough how professional and courteous the Chateau is run. Any and all of my anxieties and Bridal Jitters were alleviated when corresponding with Marie. Her patience and expertise was unwavering. She worked with me to ensure my vision for my Wedding Day was fulfilled. Roxy was invaluable as the 'Day of Coordinator". Roxy is a pro! She knew the names and faces of each Bridal Party member and the immediate family of Bride and Groom. They all commented on how sincere and warm she was. My guests raved about all aspects of the wedding. The venue, food and the service were all perfect. I knew my guests were genuine with their compliments when everyone wanted to meet Marie who is usually behind the scenes on the day off. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Venue to any bride. My wedding day was picture perfect.

Choosing the Chateau Bellevie was the perfect choice for my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding and reception. They were living out of state so I volunteered to help them look for a venue. The moment I saw the Chateau and met Maria I could tell that this was the ONLY place for their special day. When my daughter-in-law came to town she could not have been more pleased….this was her dream….she wanted to feel like a princess and she did. The Chateau alone can sell you…but with Maria’s expertise, love for what she does, and desire to make your day so very special is an added bonus that is hard to find. Not to mention, the food was excellent, and the service and set-up superb. Roxane, the wedding coordinator, was attentive to all the details and was able to accommodate last minute changes. Both she and Maria are so easy to work with. If you need recommendations for flowers, cake, etc., Maria will provide excellent recommendations….which you can trust. Then there is the honeymoon suite and breakfast for the bride and groom which is such an intimate touch. The Chateau Bellevie was Absolutely Fabulous!!!! Thank you so much Maria!!!

Chateau Bellevie is the most amazing place I could think of to have a wedding. My husband and I searched for ages to find a great venue and we found that and more at the Chateau.

Right from the beginning, Maria and her team were so open, generous, and truly excited to be a part of our wedding. They made us feel like royalty throughout the whole process. Maria was so flexible with our crazy schedule and was always incredibly professional.

On top of all the wonderful things about the venue, the food is fantastic as well! Maria provided a vegetarian option for myself and some family members, which made everyone incredibly happy! The hors d'oeuvres were beyond words (get the fruit kabob with key lime drizzle!) and we were given food to take home since we were so busy visiting with everyone! The best part about the Chateau was how I never once felt like I was being overcharged or I wasn't getting the best value possible. The prices for both venue rental and food are well worth it.

The highlight of my wedding at Chateau Bellevie was how the whole team responded in a (small) crisis situation. While I was having some photos taken before the wedding, the wedding cake was dropped off. When my husband saw it, he immediately texted me to tell me I should look at it and when I saw it, I was shocked. The cake vendor had delivered the cake and the decoration was not even half way completed. This was also about one hour before the ceremony. Immediately, Roxana (Maria's daughter) got on the phone to call the owner of the bakery to find a solution. When the bakery owner said she couldn't help me, Roxana called another vendor, Ambrosia Cakes, to help me. Not only did Jennifer at Ambrosia Cakes agree to help me in such a short time, she came to the venue, picked up a cake, left a "dummy cake" in its place, and took it back to her studio to decorate it with my vision in mind. The cake was brought back and decorated beautifully before I could even say "I do." This was all because of Roxana and Maria's quick thinking and great relationships with other vendors in the wedding community.

Having a wedding at Chateau Bellevie is not like having a venue for your wedding-- it's like having your wedding at a family member's home (without all the drama). You'll be welcomed into the family and it will truly be one of the most special days of your lives.

The Chateau Bellevie has got to be one of the best kept secrets of the North Carolina wedding industry. We had our ceremony and reception at the Chateau Bellevie, and then stayed in the honeymoon suite that night as well. Maria and her daughter Roxana were absolutely incredible to work with for our intimate summer wedding of about 60 guests.

I cannot possibly express how beautiful this place is... we couldn't believe how reasonable the cost was for such an elegant venue. We had looked around at other places that were similarly priced, and the quality was just nowhere near the Chateau Bellevie.

Maria treated us like family from day one of working with her. She was also able to recommend other fantastic wedding vendors, which made the entire process of planning a wedding so much easier. She and her staff prepare all of the food on site there, and it is absolutely delicious. My husband was slightly obsessed with one of her "old family recipes" that she served at a pre-wedding food tasting about six months before our wedding. She remembered how much he loved it and packed up a big box of it for us to take home for him the next morning!

I know that Maria and Roxana had other weddings to plan in addition to ours (including Roxana's!) but every time we spoke to them or met with them they treated us as if we were their top priority.

The only reason I gave them 4 stars for flexibility is that the venue is on the small side, so there are some minor limitations in that sense. The staff themselves are extremely flexible.

Two years later, we still hear from our friends and family about how beautiful our wedding was. And I have to say... other than agreeing to marry my sweet husband in the first place, choosing to get married at the Chateau Bellevie was absolutely the best wedding-related decision I made.

Chateau Bellevie B&B responded with the following comments:

We really loved and enjoyed having Katie & John's wedding at the Chateau, they were wonderful.
The limitations she's referring to ( space wise) have been long gone, eliminated. There have been a lot of changes made to allow for a more comfortable flow of the events.
The Chateau is almost 10,000 sqft anyways, and the guests get to enjoy almost all of it at weddings.
Sincerely,
Maria

5.0/5.0
Our wedding experience at Chateau was a divine appointment from all respects. Maria and Roxana are very delightful and went above and beyond to make our dream day come true. The location and old world charm of the Chateau are one of a kind. The staff was very accomidating leading up to and the day of our diving appointment. Our family was able to stay at the Chateau with us the night of our wedding which made for a truely family experience. Just as they were the day of, the next morning, Roxana and Maira were just as lovely. Maria with her meal that she prepared for our family and guest was out of this world....Roxana has a very creative knack and created us a special candy bar that our guest enjoyed, the home was filled with lovely music....All of the servers and wait staff were very gracious. I highly recommend the Chateau Bellevie B&B. My husband and I will definately be back! Thank you can't even begin to express our graditude to your family for blessing the beginning or our new family!!
