Why Molto Bella?

We understand choosing the perfect venue for your important event is one of THE most critical decisions you’ll be making.  Let our experienced and knowledgeable staff take the stress out of this decision by offering you unique solutions to potential challenging circumstances.

CHALLENGE: How can we keep our budget affordable?

SOLUTION: Molto Bella Weddings and Events does not surprise you with surcharges.  We offer many services and items free of charge for your own unique wedding. We set up to your specifications. When the event is over, you walk away and we clean up. We also offer discounted combination packages.  Our detailed package can be viewed here.

CHALLENGE: We want an outdoor wedding but don’t have a rain plan.

SOLUTION: Many venues are either indoor or outdoor.  If you choose a venue that specializes in an outdoor venue, weather can be a big guessing game. Some outdoor venues may have a small indoor accommodation that may not be big enough to house your guests.  Usually outdoor venues do not provide tents.  If they do, there may be an extra fee for a plain white tent. Tents may have to be put on reserve at rental companies.  A wedding tent can start as high as $400. Molto Bella takes the worry out.  The Bride and Groom can plan an outdoor wedding knowing that they have access to a large beautiful indoor area.  Since weddings have to be booked far in advance, there is no way to predict the weather.  Molto Bella offers the flexibility of planning an outdoor wedding that can be changed easily to a beautiful indoor wedding.

CHALLENGE: The bridal magazines show beautiful weddings  in meadows and fields.  We would love to have an outdoor wedding, but we are learning that there is more planning and hidden costs than we anticipated. Everything has to be brought in and set up, including bathrooms.

SOLUTION: Molto Bella offers 4 beautiful unique pavilions in close proximity surrounded by gardens.  There are plenty of electrical plugs available to provide many configurations for your ceremony and reception. We provide the tables, chairs, outdoor furniture, patio fans, patio heaters, and we  spray organic bug repellent before every event to shoo away pesky insects.  Add whatever special touch you want to pull it all together.  Our pavilions are designed so that you may hang décor from the ceiling.

CHALLENGE: We don’t want our wedding and reception to feel crowded.

SOLUTION: That’s not a problem at Molto Bella!

"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)

Ellie Shivers

"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!"

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)
