Constructed of stone in the Romanesque architectural style, the Bella Donna Chapel is located on an island in the uniquely designed old-world village of Adriatica in Stonebridge Ranch.

Accessible by footbridge, the journey to the Bella Donna is deeply reminiscent of another time and place with a subtle combination of history and holiness stirring the heart of those visiting her. Completed in 2011, the BDC has been used for Weddings, Vow Renewals, Photography Sittings, Memorial Services, Christian Ministry Events, Music Recitals and Concerts. The Bella Donna Chapel's elegant character and breathtaking beauty are quickly setting it apart as the most sought after ceremony venue in the region.

After saying “I Do�, the Bride and Groom are joined by their guests on the terrace to announce to the community their happy union. Following tradition, they will together ring the wedding bell, cast especially for Bella Donna and given as a gift from the citizens of Supetar, Croatia as a sign of friendship from one village to another.
