We love the PAVE'. This was a great place to get ready for the wedding. Ray Baca is very accommodating and has a very personal touch to help make this a worry-free event. The mirrors and chairs were great for hair stylist and makeup artist to do their magic. It makes all the difference to have vendors come to you so that you can focus on the bride her bridal party. We enjoyed the comforts of the sitting area, which made it relaxing and personal for conversation minimizing the nerves while having mimosas and snacks.
Book your event because this is a gem on the waterfront!!
Ray you are the best and wish you all the success with this venue!!

Did you know you can rent Pave' for only $150 Mon-Wed for a murder mystery party (or any other event)? *of course you do since I ALWAYS post about it, haha.

This was a fun one. 1920's theme birthday party! I love all the creative people hosting wonderful parties in this little GEM (PAVE' actually means "cobblestone" or "a type of diamond").

Thursday $200, Friday-Sunday 9-3 or 4-10 $500. Bring on the parties.

Have a wonderful day.

MAD WORLD!

When things get wild out there, grab your friends and celebrate!
Pave' is perfect for parties of 25-ish people! Enjoy.

08/25/2022

Just a heads up! You know Pave' is great for 25 or less people and is set up to have a very cool loungy style event (vs sit down banquet tables).
With only one bathroom let's not push too many people in this spot.

NOW... Belle Vue Wilmington is open and ready for events. If you like the vibe of that spot better let me know. Prices are different but it is an option.
Thanks. Happy planning!

Bonnie Baldwin Rosario you are something else! Fun, high spirited, energetic and just one amazing gal. Thanks for supporting my little venue.

Thanks Heather Batten Evans for setting this up at Pave'!
Did you all know I book out Pave' for events Monday-Wednesday for only $150, Thursday is $200 and weekends 9-3 or 4-10 for $500. We would love to host your next "whatever" event!
Cape Fear CREW What a great way to spend little Friday with great conversations and headshots! Thank you to Tyner Tew & Maggie Everhart Owens with GreenView Partners for taking the photos and Amie Coffey with MARY KAY for making sure we looked our best.
Ray Baca, owner of Pave', provided the beautiful space and it is perfect for any social event!

Requests are starting to come in for Christmas/Holiday/Corporate parties.
I am not a greedy guy, I just want the venue booked out every day :)
Happy planning. Share with your friends who like to host parties but would rather do it at Pave' vs their home!

Pave' is downtown Wilmington's newest event space. We are conveniently located on the ground floor on Water Street (near Chandler's Warf)...just steps away from the River Walk and the Cape Fear River.
We book it out from 9-4 or 5-10pm.

We are going GREEN and not meaning just adding plants (but yes, more plants the better). No more wasting water washing linen/dishes. Our plates/flatware/cups are biodegradable (we do offer an eclectic mix of real wine/champagne glasses).
No more 6 foot banquet tables. This venue is meant for social gatherings. Pave' is cocktail style so lounge if you like on the couch, hop up on a bar stool or stand and mix/mingle.
We offer all the rentals, handle the set up and clean after you leave. We have a full size refrigerator, microwave, sink and prep area. There is a back room that we utilize for putting food in when not booked as a bridal suite. We have a mixture of tables to put the food on.
There is only one bathroom at Pave' so that keeps our numbers comfortably in the 25-35 range.
This is the vision for Pave'. I have done traditional venues in the past but I thought it was time to mix things up a bit.
Hope you like it.

Monday-Thursday from 5-10 Pave' is super affordable and sets up for a great setting for 25 or less people.
This was a last minute bridal shower. What a fun event for sure!

Who do you know that wants to celebrate something but doesn't want to clean the house, put the pups away, straighten up the yard or clean after your guests leave?

WELL THEN...come hang at Pave'! For $75 you can have use of the space Mon-Thursday from 5-9 ish for get togethers, meetings or whatever!
Heck, if you and your person just want to get away from the kids for a few hours bring some wine and relax on the couches at Pave'.
Bring in any food (take out, catering or pot luck) and byob!

Time to keep those parties going. Don't let what is going on around us keep us from celebrating. Rent is higher, gas is nuts and things just cost more... SO PARTY HARDER or do it in a special way!

Support local please! Happy planning!

My other venue is moving! Now I have an option for smaller intimate celebrations at Pave' and Belle can handle up to 80ish for a bit larger parties!!! Happy planning!

From Chaos to Calm, Belle Vue Wilmington is moving to the Brooklyn Arts District Aug. 1st.
We have been on Princess and Front for about 8 years and I have LOVED my venues! So many amazing memories. But the time has come to move Belle to a larger building (80ish max guests), free on street parking, neighborhood vibe, big kitchen and NO STAIRS!!!
Thanks to Matt Davis with Life Stage Films for this awesome promo video!
Thanks also to Aloha Real Estate and Toni and Christian Cardamone for finding this for me.
Also, Andrew Flynn and Dan who worked the last few months trying to find Belle a new home. I appreciate all your hard work guys!
I am blown away by the awesome businesses that are part of this community and excited to bring another event space to this area. Smaller weddings, rehearsal dinners, parties, bridal suite and so many more events! If you haven't been down North 4th do yourself a favor and come check out some of these great spots.
Images of the inside coming soon but BOOKING NOW and we HAVE FULL AVAILABILITY THIS FALL!!! Email [email protected] for more information.

We love the PAVE'. This was a great place to get ready for the wedding. Ray Baca is very accommodating and has a very personal touch to help make this a worry-free event. The mirrors and chairs were great for hair stylist and makeup artist to do their magic. It makes all the difference to have vendors come to you so that you can focus on the bride her bridal party. We enjoyed the comforts of the sitting area, which made it relaxing and personal for conversation minimizing the nerves while having mimosas and snacks.

It is time to start planning your Christmas/Holiday/Corporate events! Belle is great for under 80 people. My other venue is great for 25 or less, check out Pave' for your smaller celebrations. [email protected] Thanks and happy planning!
This man is magic when it comes to creativity and angles. I simply LOVE these gals. These two will be the last to use the Old Belle to get ready in before we move next week. I sure hope there are MANY more days like this one because I am not sure it gets much better. Check out the whole slideshow in the comments from Matt McGraw Photography, Bakery 105, Knot Too Shabby Events, Active DJ Entertainment and Pave'!!! Well done everyone...enjoy!
You know Belle is great when used for a bridal suite BUT, so is Pave'!!! This was so much fun. My BRIDES used both venues and I got my steps in walking back and forth, haha. #loveislove
Two more months in this location for Belle but did you know there is another intimate venue downtown called Pave' that is great for baby/bridal showers and a perfect location to get ready the day of your wedding? Come check us out. www.eventsatpave.com Show some love and like Pave' won't ya!
I've been DYING to share these since we took them last week!! Samantha was so stunning in her wedding dress!! 😍😍😍 Indoor Venue: Pave' Outdoor: Greenfield Lake Dress: Camille's of Wilmington Hair/Makeup: the beautiful bride herself!
Did you know Belle has a gem of a little sister? (Pave' is a type of diamond and is my little gem). Pave' is a perfect location to start your wedding day. Share this post with your newly engaged friend, please and thank you! Happy Planning!
Another amazing crew of people celebrating a wedding shower!!! Two more months to get your party in at belle! Check out Pave' for your smaller events!
Thank you Pave' for the awesome venue! It was perfect for our families newest addition💙
Private parties, ladies night out, game night or a few couples doing private dinning. Grab any food and beer/wine/champagne and I will set up, provide all rentals and clean after you leave. I only have Belle 90 more days so let's get some celebration in (and help me in this crazy time while I am in between venues) :) Pave' is still up and running and I have that for 3 years. Currently looking for a new "Belle" so if you know of anything hit me up. I wasn't about to pay a 150% increase in rent to keep belle. Karma people! It will get ya! :)
The set-up and the results! Professional headshots for Edward Jones' advisor, Tracy Dean, taken at the gorgeous downtown space, Pave'!
I know I cross promote my venues a lot...but so proud of this little gem! ⚜⚜ Pave' https://fb.watch/bbOl0BHLCo/
Have you heard the news??? Belle Vue has a little sister! We had our first bridal shower at Pave' yesterday. If you haven't given it a "like" please do so and look around a little.

Reflecting back on the past 5 and 1/2 years...this place just blows my mind. SO many great events! I have met a ton of new friends and I am thankful for your support over the years. We have 7 more months to make magic! Let's go out with a bang! Don't worry... Pave' is open and ready for intimate celebrations and I am in negotiations with another medium size venue. We will still have plenty of options for your celebration needs!!! Cheers to 2022!!!
Busy holiday season! So many people to thank... Some great dinners ( Spoonfed Kitchen & Bakeshop Diamond Food Enterprises), delicious wine and of course great fellowship! Thank you all for using Belle for your celebration. 3 more events and then it is Sunday Funday!!! Happy Holidays!
