Are you still looking into the Bell Tower? I know someone who just got married there and can ask her for pricing if you still need it!

She’s out of town, I’ll ask her for her pricing when she gets back. I know it wasn’t TOO reasonable because her bar tab alone was over $8k for ~220 guests. 

To be perfectly honest, it wasn’t my favorite wedding. The main reason was because she held it in the morning – which is totally fine in my book, but it was treated as a nighttime wedding, so they hired a DJ to play clubby music, encouraged everyone to drink a lot, etc. The wedding started at 11 in the chapel, and after the ceremony was over we moved to a very large space – I think it’s called the Carillon Ballroom. They didn’t cover the windows, so there was sunlight streaming in during the whole reception – again, totally totally fine with me but they were trying to create a clubby atmosphere. I think it would’ve been super romantic at night but it wasn’t the best venue for a daytime wedding.

The food was GREAT, the service was really good, and everything seemed to run really smoothly. One thing I loved was the way the chapel was designed, after the whole wedding party walked into the chapel, they shut the doors, a little girl rang a bell, and they opened these enormous wooden doors and the bride walked in. It gave me goosebumps – definitely a dramatic entrance!

Nothing went wrong at all, I think everything worked out really well for them, so it’s probably a very good venue to work with. It’s not 100% my style, but I do think it would be much better for a nighttime wedding.

If you haven’t already, you have to go see it in person!

I have a friend getting married in one of the smaller rooms (maybe the Chandelier room) on a Friday. I think they are paying close to 24K for 180 guests.

Are you still looking into Bell Tower? I was just there last week and got pricing info for ceremony at the Water Wall and reception in the Carillion Room.

I got a price sheet from them at their last open house. It is absolutely beautiful but outright ridiculous.

For 100 people in the Candela room (one of the smallest) on a Saturday night it would have been 23k just for the room. This does not include linens, any decor, etc. If you want an adjacent room to have cocktails in while they “flip”, you have to pay that room’s fee as well. With the minimal options they offer, minimal price per person on catering, cake and decor it would have exceeded well over 30k for me to have a wedding there. Although the weddings there do look like they are coming straight out of a magazine.

Anyone can PM me for more info 🙂

This place is gorgeous but if you are on any kind of budget, don’t even think about it!
