My original wedding venue canceled our reservation three months before the wedding date. Bella Terra swooped in when my husband and I were in need of a venue and made our lives so much easier, and far less stressful. I am so so so happy how everything worked out. I keep thinking about how amazing our wedding was, in very large part because we had it at Bella Terra. Dalena's energy, attention to detail, and warm welcoming was so great! She had a binder with our names on it when we showed up to view the venue, which was a very sweet touch. As we had to venue shop twice, we visited many venues, none of which were anywhere near as welcoming as Bella Terra. Dalena helped us to feel super comfortable and right at home when at Bella Terra. Jacquelyn, Dalena's daughter, is very kind and provided prompt and informative communication via email and phone. My husband and I worked with a lot of different vendors while planning the wedding, and it was unfortunate to learn how many people are unable to write a concise email, respond promptly (or at all), and/or had unnecessarily confusing forms for us to fill out. As I am not creative in a crafty way, I was elated with how inherently cute, warm, and cozy the venue already was. The reception was beautiful, all of the seating areas were great, everything was perfect! Because of Bella Terra my husband and I are able to look back on our wedding day with so much joy and happiness. Again, thank you for everything, Bella Terra! You guys are the best :) More...

Bella Terra is an incredible, unique, and affordable venue. We had our wedding 10-20-18, and ALL of our guests still talk about what a fun and beautiful venue it is. Dalena and John are so sweet! They do whatever they need to do in order to make your day perfect! I'm so so glad we used them! More...

My daughter and fiancé could not have made a better decision than to pick Bella Terra for their wedding venue. The owners put a lot of love into the venue and spread that joy. The surrounding/setting is beyond majestic. The food is delicious to say the least. True appreciation these owners and venue are here to make one of the biggest days my daughter will have even more fabulous. More...

We had been deciding between multiple locations on where to have our reception. In the end we decided to work with Dalena because of how awesome she is. She has been very helpful in every step of the way. There is no worry on my mind that our special day will go great. From what we have experienced so far; the food is amazing, the venue is amazing, and the staff is amazing. Also, the amount of work they manage to do to improve the venue in short periods of time is out of this world! I look forward to sharing this day with Dalena and Bella Terra. More...

Wow! Blown away by our first visit to Bella terra in January! Twinkle lights galore. Dalena was excited and delighted to show us the venue! We were undecided on our first visit so we visited again. Dalena was happy to have ya back. From the beginning of her lighted path, down to a magical ceremony site, strolled by the pond for remote control race boats and headed on down to the reception which used to be an arena. Impressive. Don't forget all the other hidden areas of the venue. The cocktail hour bar, games and games, tucked away private benches, small area for recording a video for the bride and groom, the gift area and millions of signs. Dalena makes sure all the cutesy details are perfect. We decided this was our magical place to get married & booked!! We arrived for our first tasting & it was a party to remember! The food was insanely delicious and nothing to complain about. Her staff was organized and very happy to help with any request. We are excited for our wedding day which will be 11-9-19! Keep you updated! More...

Very nice venue. We've come to tour a couple times and came today for the food tasting. All the food was super delicious; it's gonna be hard to choose our menu . There lots of areas for photo-ops and things for guests to do between events. The owners are very nice and helpful as well as all the staff we encountered. Our wedding is still a year and a half away but we both are excited for our special day. Once that day comes, we'll update our review but I'm very confident it'll still be 5 stars! More...

My friend got married here at Bella Terra. Man, what a venue! It is a gorgeous all outdoor venue with the cutest decor. They have different sections along the property as you walk towards the main dance area. They have corn hole, darts and photo section. You can tell a lot of love and hard work was put in designing this place. Since I was apart of the bridal party, they had a section separate from the cocktail hour before the wedding, were we got dressed and took photos with the bride. It was a private and beautiful room with all the things we needed to get dressed. Besides this amazing venue, Jackie and Dalena were so sweet to everyone and planned everything out perfectly. I definitely recommend this place for an outdoor wedding. You won't regret it! More...

I attended an old friend’s wedding in early October at Bella Terra and with this venue being so new, I had no idea what to expect. After the quick shuttle ride from Pala Casino, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw what a hidden gem this place was. The rustic but classy charm this venue has will blow your mind; the pictures won’t do it justice. You just have to see it for yourself to truly appreciate all of the picturesque views and intricate details this property is made up of. One of my favorite parts was that the owners were there working and making sure everything was running smoothly. They were willing and able to accommodate any of the guests needs and made themselves available to anybody who may have required assistance. Besides the two owners being so helpful and courteous, the rest of the event staff was amazing as well. Every employee working during the wedding and reception was polite and always had a smile on their face. Now for the food- I can say without a doubt that this was the best BBQ meal, let alone wedding meal, I have ever had. When you go to a wedding, typically the food is expected to be sub-par. But at this wedding, that wasn’t the case at all; the food was the talk of the guests throughout the entire reception. The coolest part was watching the owner cook all of the meat right there on site over a huge oak-fired BBQ. Bottom line: if you are looking for a venue for any occasion and want to feel like family, there is no better option than Bella Terra. More...

BRIDES! This beautiful venue is only a short distance from the now over rated, over priced Temecula venues - AND you get so much more personal attention - Dalena and John DO NOT do a one size fits all event, they create an experience that you and your guests will talk about long after the wedding.  Bella Terra truly is a one-stop shop;  ceremony among the beautiful trees, picture perfect backdrops for those super important photos, perfectly designed reception area and the most DELICIOUS BBQ you will ever have...not cooked somewhere else and brought in, your food is cooked onsite, which is why everyone continues to say..."I wish we could have some of that tri-tip again!" It really is Pinterest worthy, but not in a pretentious way - just the way any bride could/would/should envision their special day.  OH and I forgot to mention how reasonably priced they are, hard to believe they can create such beautiful memories with such detail!  PS - They can also do wedding and baby showers, company picnics or holiday parties...hmmm, not sure if there is anything they can not do :) More...

Bride's don't look any further!! I wish I could give more than 5 stars after having my wedding here on 8/18/18.My husband and I stumbled upon this gem and as every woman knows, we know what we want! I immediately said "I do to this venue" and my husband couldn't resist the charm of this place. We booked the all-inclusive wedding package with Bella Terra. Let me tell you it was the best decision we could have ever made and highly recommend it! Not only is the price right but I am still to this day getting compliments about the venue, the food, the drinks, and the staff. Did I mention the DJ and alcohol/bartenders is also included in their package?Some comments I got were: "I want to get married here, man I wish I had my baby shower here, my photographer would love to take pictures here, how did you find THIS place!?""The food was AMAZING, did you get leftovers, I went back for seconds some even said thirds!"The bartenders not only took care of all the guests but they even went above and beyond for my girls and myself. It was a hot day and they always kept me cool and hydrated. Dalena and John along with their team are so wonderful to work with and made our day even more special, completely stress free, and they really go above and beyond even with the smallest of details.P.S. if you love outdoorsy, country, twinkle lights galore and anything pinterest related don't look any further and call them today! *Currently going through pictures of all the beauty of the property and the sweet details provided by Bella Terra. Thank you so much and can't wait until our next Bella Terra event!Mr. & Mrs. McClain More...

Dalena's catering was the perfect choice for our wedding. We had people talking about how delicious their food was days after the event. She and her husband are so sweet and professional and were very accommodating to our guests. We had one guest that was vegan and they went out of their way to make sure that he had his meal, which was very sweet. Dalena personally served us our meals during the reception and made sure we had a little bit of everything. When the reception was over, any leftover food that they had, they packed up for us so we could take home. It was enough food for the week! We couldn't have been happier about that. Communicating with Dalena was very simple, through email. For the most part, she was prompt in emailing back within a day or two. We were also able to do a food tasting at their venue as well, which is how we decided we really wanted them as our caterer. Over all, everything was amazing and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you for being a part of our special day! More...

Please read this review!!I recently attended a wedding at Bellaterra-events in Valley Center and was amazed by the beauty of this venue! The outdoorsyness of this estate is one of the many reasons that made me want to write this review. It has beautiful trees all around and where they hold the wedding is so cozy and beautiful. The cocktail hour was great and went by quick due to all there is to look at while you're snacking on refreshments. Took a sneak peak in the bridal suite and it was gorgeous! The wedding was under a big beautiful tree and very romantic! The  staff was super efficient and I enjoyed the reception under the tents and the space they had to get out and boogie after eating some delicious tri-tip and fish! If the day comes where I get married again, this is the venue I will be booking:) More...

I attended a wedding a couple weeks ago and Dalena's catering was outstanding! The tri tip and chicken was the best I've ever tasted! Summer salad Cream corn and barbecue beans were the perfect sides to go along with it. They barbecued on site which made their catering unique! The owner and her staff were so friendly. I recommended them for our next Christmas Party! More...

Most amazing food and service ever. I recommend it to all my clients that are looking for great food for there parties. The mac and cheese is to die for and the ribs and tri tip are heavenly. Dalena and her family of servers are so nice and helpful they're a pleasure to work with. Can't wait for the next event to have them at. -Georgina Dunn For All Time Events More...

Dalena catered our wedding a few weekends ago. They serve traditional santa maria style BBQ that is to die for! We had their traditional chicken and tri-tip dinner. This meal was perfectly seasoned, cooked, and did not need any BBQ sauce what so ever!  Dalena  and her staff are absolutely professional when it comes to preparing the food and making sure everything is perfect. Dalena consistently came to check on my wife and I to make sure the food was good and made sure that we were taken care of. More...

Everyone loved our food at our wedding thanks to Delena. If you want good affordable food choose her! She does buffet style which is what we wanted and definitely has enough food for all your guests. At the end of the night she even asked if we wanted to take home the leftovers. Because everyone was from out of town we opted not to and she asked if it was ok to give to her staff... of course we said yes! So she gave it to her staff which I thought was awesome.  She helped with cutting cake which wasn't her dessert so there was a small fee but not a big deal in the end. She also can bring appetizers (which she made a separate platter for the bridal party while taking photos which was nice), drink stand, and place setting essentials. This is definitely a mom and pop operation and sometimes it shows in her communication HOWEVER her food is fantastic and her staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely would recommend Delena for delicious food--it even stayed warm the entire night! More...

Dalena and her staff were absolutely wonderful catering for our wedding at the Condor's Nest Ranch.  The food was amazing and she was so sweet! ! Dalena accommodated my guests who were vegan with only a days notice and was so quick to respond! She had such a variety of food to chose from and will work with your budget.  She is extremely professional and responds quickly to email. I would recommend her for any catering needs!!! Thank you Dalena for making our wedding day such a hit!! More...

Dalena's Catering 2 U catered our company luncheon and food was fabulous. The main dishes were Tri Tip and BBQ Chicken. Both were tender and the chicken fell off the bone. Hats off to John, the grill master. Can't wait for our next luncheon so we can ask them to cater again. More...
