Belle Haven is an absolutely beautiful venue! We visited on a cold, rainy day in January but fell in love with the feel of the place anyway. Jan is a pleasure to work with and was a real help throughout the planning process as well as on the day of the wedding. Fair warning: bringing in EVERYTHING is quite a task, but allows for a unique day.
