I cant write enough great things about Bella Events. We had them provide our food and some rental items (chargers, linens, dinnerware etc) for our outdoor wedding and everything was PERFECT! Raul was VERY easy to work with – phone calls/texting, he was casual and easy to talk... Read More to. The day of the wedding the food was simply delicious. It did NOT taste like mass produced food. His staff was what really amazed me. They made sure that everyone, from us (the bride and groom) to the guests were 100% happy and taken care of. I heard from almost everyone who gave us their input that “the food was SO GOOD!” You can’t go wrong, using Bella Events for your wedding food. And the value for the money is insane. You will kick yourself if you DON’T go with Bella Events – superior tasting food, impeccable staff, and completely affordable. You seriously can’t go wrong!

My husband and I could not have chosen a better all around wedding planner/coordinator/caterer to help us with our wedding! Raul and Marisella were there for every step of the way giving us all the options that we could have ever imagined! Everything from the planning to the... Read More rentals and all the stuff that you dont think about was absolutely perfect. From day one we knew we were going to use Bella Events but even Raul still told us to get quotes from other vendors to just make sure that we were certain we wanted to use them. No one even compared. The family aspect behind Bella is really what makes their business what it is. We felt like they truly cared about our day and we weren't just another bride and groom. They were there with us from start to finish and always one step ahead of us. All of our guests complimented us on the food and decorations at the reception. Many people even mentioned that they saw Raul hard at work during the reception making sure everything was happening as it was supposed to. Raul or Marisella were always just a glance away waiting for my husband or I to look like we might possibly need something and then they were right on it. It was almost as if they knew what we needed before we even knew it ourselves. The reception went off perfectly and it will be forever one of the greatest days in our lives and it would not have been what it was with out the help of Raul and Marisella. We can not thank them enough for everything they did for us. You will have not a single doubt once you meet these amazing people. I highly suggest them to any and everyone looking for any sort of event coordination, planning or food services. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!

It is impossible to put into words how amazing Raul and his team are. From my first meeting with Marisela, I knew that I did not want to look anywhere else.

From cocktail hour down to the rentals of the dinnerware, Bella Events was flawless.

We couldn't have picked a better catering vendor... Bella's food and services were great.

Bella Event Jax made my wedding! From engagement until the moment we walked down the aisle, they were professional, thorough and patient. The food and cake tasting was a great experience, and both turned out better than I could have imagined on the big day. Raul and his staff... Read More patiently answered our questions whenever we had them (which was often). He also met us at the venue to go over logistics, layout, etc. way ahead of time. That helped put us at ease and allowed us to focus more on love, stress less. Originally I was thinking a simple table layout for the reception, but Raul suggested a gold runner to spice things up. Perfect idea! Everyone talked about the decor and how beautiful everything was. That was the extra push I needed from a professional who had done weddings before. The food, cake and bar services were just what we asked for as well. I will use Bella Event Jax 100 times over and suggest you try them too!

I have used Bella events for my own wedding, my friends wedding and even for my own graduation party. Their service is always amazing and the most important part is that they LISTEN! When I was doing my own wedding and my friends wedding they were willing to work with our very... Read More small budgets for food. Even though our budgets were small, the food was plentiful! At my own wedding the guava pastries, and empanadas were gone! Same goes for all the food at my graduation party! The chicharon de pollo was perfect and the masitas de puerco were amazing. They really do pay attention to detail and at all three events that I've used them for, people have asked where the food was from. I am not even exaggerating when I tell you that not a crumb was left of the food at the three parties. My favorite part about them is that they are prompt with their emails, text messages and return phone calls. They worked around my crazy night schedule and were willing to communicate with me after normal business hours. I would highly recommend them to any bride because I was extremely happy with them and I will continue to do business with them. :-)
