“Stunning venue, amazing people, and SO WORTH IT! Every single person I spoke to was so nice and helpful every step of the way. From the owners, to set-up guys, to Charlie (DEFINITELY hire Charlie for your event. When they ask “Do you want Charlie?” YOU WANT CHARLIE!), to even the landscape crew. Overall, 10/10 experience. The best customer service I have ever received anywhere and they made our wedding day such a stress free day!” (6-12-2023)

“Gorgeous wedding venue for my friend’s daughter…had multiple spaces to choose from for an indoor or an outdoor wedding and plenty of space to perform ceremony and have reception all within one location. The venue was a nice location for any event, not just a wedding.” (10-11-2022) * 5 Star *

“Hi I am one of the owners of Crumbs Catering in Ruston. I wanted to thank you for allowing us to cater at your beautiful venue. Every event we have catered there has been lovely. Thank you for the referrals and including us on your venue list. We believe it is a privilege to cater and provide wedding cakes at Molto Bella.

Chef Jodie Morphew

“The venue, Molto Bella Weddings , was absolutely one that stands out on its own with its beautiful gardens and exposed brick walls inside. It’s hard to believe that this is the same space that used to be Edge of Madness years ago because the transformation is breathtaking! I cannot forget to thank the amazing staff! Dusty made sure we had everything we could have needed for set-up and decor and took the time to go over every option with us ahead of time. Charlie, the on-site manager for the day was really the best asset I could have had as far as his attention to detail and complete professionalism from guests to vendors.” (7-11-22)

Jasmine Ledet

“Molto Bella was the perfect place for our wedding!! The venue on its own is beautiful and you absolutely get your moneys worth if you book with Carolyn! Her and her sons are extremely accommodating and ready to help with anything you need! Honestly though the best thing about Molto Bella is the amount of inventory they have! After paying for the venue the only thing I had to buy decorations wise was flowers!! She had table cloths, chairs, table decorations, a decorative wall with a neon sign we used for pictures(pictured), lanterns and vases for the tables and aisle all available to use with no extra cost! Once you book you have the venue for the whole weekend if you want it, which made set up and clean up so stress free. I mean I can’t say enough how worth it it was!”

Ellie Shivers

“I’m so excited to see the pictures from Andrew Brown and my happy day on March 5! We have so many people to thank for making our day so special. First of all, we want to thank our families for all the love and support we’ve received. We are so grateful for our Wedding Coordinator, Jennifer Firmin McMaster, for making everything move so smoothly. Thank you Annabell Bagwell for the beautiful pictures. If you need pictures done, you can find her at Bell’s Photography. We want to say a big thank you to Chase Green for traveling back to Louisiana to officiate our wedding. We want to thank Creative Catering & More, LLC for the amazing food and the beautiful displays. And on top of everything, we are thankful to the Molto Bella Weddings crew for all of their work at their venue. The entire wedding planning experience was busy, but so rewarding….” (Apr 2, 2022)


“In July of 2021 I had the honor of photographing Carmen and Arturo’s wedding at Molto Bella Weddings & Events in Calhoun, La. The facilities look like something out of a fairy tale. The architecture and grounds have a heavy hispanic influence. The day was absolutely beautiful in terms of weather and stunning in terms of bride and groom attire. I second shot this wedding with David of Double Windsor Photography, and I was with the groom, Arturto for most of the day. One of my favorite parts of the day was capturing some special moments before the wedding with Arturo and his father in the groom prep area. They played foosball and chess, but the room included a refrigerator and several video game consoles. After the ceremony, I was able to capture some beautiful photos of the bride and groom in a secluded garden area near the front of the property. The reception was amazing. There was a real live mariachi band, a smoke machine, and lots of dancing. Although this location was almost 4 hours away, it was a wonderful experience and I wish Carmen and Arturo a lifetime of happiness.” (Mar. 29, 2022)

Larry George

“This venue is amazing. The people who own the place are so kind and helpful. The venue was beautiful. The owners set the wedding decorations (such as the chairs, tables, etc.) and tore it down so we didn’t have to. I loved having my wedding here and would recommend it to anyone getting married.” (03-15-22)

BRIDES, FAMILIES… THIS IS THE PLACE YOU’RE LOOKING FOR! We’re still trying to absorb everything that was so perfect in our baby girl’s most special day. As the mom, I woke up this morning and couldn’t help but begin to cry when I really started thinking about so many wonderful people that helped pull off more than I ever imagined. From Ms. Carolyn & Michael (owners), Pam (caterer), Charlie (staff), Emily (catering), Denver (security) to all the ones behind the scenes, I am floored at your LOVE and service to the bride, bridal party and the whole family!

April Nelson Lingenfelder

“I did TONS of researching before booking our wedding in April 2021, and Molto Bella was definitely the best venue in North Louisiana. The staff is unbelievably attentive and took care of everything for us all week long! We were able to visit the venue essentially anytime we wanted to in the months leading up to the wedding, we got the venue starting Wednesday of wedding week (our wedding was on Friday) so that we could come and go setting up as we pleased, and the staff did ALL of the setup and clean up for us. All my family had to do was leave with us once the wedding was over, and the staff packed all of our stuff up neatly in boxes for them to come pick up the next day.🤩 I couldn’t say enough good things about them! They both have indoor and outdoor spaces (all equally as beautiful and you get ALL of them to pick from depending on the weather that week), and they very comfortably fit our large 300+ people wedding. They also have an inventory room full of decor so we barely had to buy anything. Chairs and tables and lighting and decor are essentially all included in the price!!! It was unreal and no other venue could offer us all of that. I couldn’t recommend them enough! Thank you Mrs. Carolyn and Michael for the best wedding day!!!” (6-9-2021)

John and Micheal are always at your service and always willing to do what they can to make your event the best it could be. They help u setup, they help you take down. You can leave them doing things. while you go do something else. The good thing is the place is beautiful with no decorations. You have so many options on setup. Not to mention you have the entire grounds if needed.”
Rebecca Camp

“I can not express how grateful we are for Carolyn, John, and Michael at Molto Bella Weddings. Wedding week is an extremely stressful time but they helped relieve some of the pressure leading up to the big event and during the event. Someone was always close by to make sure all of our needs were met. We used an outside Pavilion for the rehearsal dinner and it was breathtaking. The wedding and reception area are gorgeous. The attention to detail all the way down to the landscaping is magnificent. Thank you so much for an extraordinary experience and helping to make Courtney and Kenneth’s wedding perfect.”

Melynda Nation Thompson

” Molto Bella is not only a stunning venue, but it’s also very versatile. You have access to all parts of the venue, inside and outside. Your imagination and creativity can really run wild in a place like this, which makes each event so unique and special. Carolyn was wonderful. She was so easy to work with and to communicate with. She was always there for any questions or concerns I had. Her 2 sons play a huge role in the events as well. I was able to work with Michael for my wedding. His creativity and imagination really stepped up my wedding decor. Who needs a decorator, when you have Michael?? He was wonderful. He made my life easier. And he helped my wedding vision come to life. Having access to all that they have for decorations was a huge help. They have so many beautiful pieces of decoration to choose from! This helps save so much money on decor that you may only use once. I cannot say enough good things about Molto Bella, as well as Carolyn, Michael, and John. I highly recommend this venue for any special occasion!”
Danielle Ferguson Smith

“We were lucky enough to have my daughter’s wedding here. I say lucky because of any venue I cannot imagine having a more beautiful, happy, perfect wedding! I cannot say enough good things about Molto Bella Weddings! Every wedding day has a certain amount of stress that goes along with it, but Carolyn made it stress free! She truly cares about “her bride’s”, as she calls them. She absolutely made us feel at home at Molto Bella. She went above and beyond anything we could have ever expected! The design of the property transports you to a Tuscan villa without ever leaving Calhoun. The details in the building are exquisite everywhere you look. The gardens are full of fragrance and blooms and maintained with a love and patience you can see and feel as soon as you walk into the venue. We had the wedding outside, but we had the beautiful Grand hall for an option in case of rain, which eliminated any worries we had about weather. I promise you will not be disappointed with this venue or any of the wonderful owners!” (May 3, 2020)

“Molto Bella was an amazing experience for my daughter’s wedding, I would recommend them for any wedding or special event. Carolyn Hill and her amazing sons made the entire process seamless even during the reception when we needed additional tables and chairs for the reception they were only a phone call and five minutes away. They offer many amenities and accessories to you at no cost so definitely check with them before you purchase any decorations. As a bride’s mother the fact that so many items were available at the location as well as they handle all set up , take down and clean up this was a huge relief to me after long week. I would definitely recommend Molto Bella for any event. We used the location for the rehearsal dinner, wedding and the reception and loved the convenience this provided. Thank You Molto Bella for an amazing experience 💜❤️🧡💛💚

“Our band played the Parker/Booth wedding at Molto Bella on Feb. 27, 2021. There are so many great things to say about this venue. The band load in was quick and easy (no stairs or steps), the ballroom stage was large and spacious, with plenty of room for sound and lighting production. The ceremony cathedral and reception ballroom were very clean and exquisite looking. The thing that really stood out to all our band members was how incredibly hospitable the entire staff at Molto Bella treated our band through the entire day and evening. They went out of their way to make sure that we were fed and always had a bottle of water or whatever beverage we needed. The bartender always had a smile on his face and friendly conversations with the band. Even at the end of the night after we had the trailer loaded and we were getting ready to leave for our trip back to Dallas- the head of the catering staff came outside and asked all the band members if they needed bottled water, soft drinks, or fresh coffee before we departed. We were treated like family, and we loved it!!!”
