Wedding on Bellevue LawnBellevue Lawn

The Tallahassee Museum makes history a more meaningful part of a couple’s special day by hosting ceremonies on the lawn of our beautiful 19th century Bellevue Plantation house or inside our 1937 Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church.  We are proud to offer a variety of affordable, customized wedding packages on the scenic and historically meaningful grounds of the Tallahassee Museum. Our Special Events Staff works with bridal parties one-on-one to create beautiful and memorable events.

Graceful trees, an arbor and a picturesque gazebo lend natural beauty to a wedding ceremony and reception on the 8,000 square foot lawn of the historic Bellevue Plantation house, circa 1840. Bellevue was once home to Princess Catherine Murat, great-grandniece of George Washington. Her husband Achille Murat, was Prince of Naples and nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. The Murats were among the most colorful figures in Tallahassee during Florida’s territorial period. The lawn of this historic house offers a graceful, scenic setting for your nuptials, helping create memories you and your guests will always treasure.
