The La Belle Group
We opened the River venue in Brandon In November of 2015 as a labor of love. We had done some research into the wedding industry and were quite shocked at the prices the local venues were charging, most starting in the tens of thousands and up. Anytime we mentioned anything concerning weddings the prices quadrupled. How could the everyday girl ever afford her dream wedding? Thus the La Belle Group was born. We decided to make it our way of giving back after all we have been given in life. At 58 years old I have personally found what I was meant to do. The La Belle Group has been a tremendous hit. We priced it to fit everyone's budget and within 30 days of opening, we were fully booked for 2016. We had to turn down brides because we did not have any open dates, so we decided to purchase a second venue, which is how La Belle Amour (The Beautiful Love) came to be. We bought a 2.5-acre wooded property in East Tampa, we did a complete renovation to the house and property and built a beautiful venue from the ground up. We can do any style of wedding you like; we offer a beautiful chapel, a barn, a garden, a gazebo, or a beautiful 100-year-old Oak tree with a heart growing on it. We can do Black tie, vintage, rustic barn style, country chic, garden, princess or any other theme you can dream up. We are a venue that is all about the bride and making sure she has the wedding of her dreams for a fair and reasonable price.
We Charge $60 per person, so a 100 person wedding would be $6000.00 and includes everything but the DJ and the cake. We provide the venue, venue director, officiant, photographer, Full dinner catering provided by 3c's catering, tables, chairs, rustic benches, linens, china, stemware, silverware.
