Last weekend I attended a close friend’s wedding at beautiful Belle Haven, and let me tell you, it was ah-maz-zingggg! Everything from the weather to the venue to the food, it was just perfect. Belle Haven is a whimsical historic estate overlooking the James River. Check out some of the snaps below of the property. My classy iPhone pictures don’t even do this place justice.
Loved how different all the bridesmaids dresses were.
This barn above was beautifully restored and hosted as the cocktail reception.
Inside the beautiful tent with the most gorgeous flowers from Southern Blooms.
The seating arrangement and favors were put together as one. The mother of the groom made her famous homemade jam for everyone. Can’t wait to try it!
The food was unbelievable. Usually I’m not blown away by wedding food, but this filet, asparagus, and potato au gratin were absolutely sensational. A flavor party in my mouth.

I didn’t end up going with Rent The Runway for a dress because when all was said and done, the dress and necklace I wanted to rent ended up being $85, and I just couldn’t do it. Knowing I’d spend $85 and have to return it within 24 hours really turned me off. The dress I wanted was only $45 but they tack on insurance and dry cleaning fees and it adds up. I think I will try them out though for a black tie wedding I’m going to in October.
How’s wedding season going for everyone else?
