Posts from the Host – A Trip to Italy…Sort of

The Grand Lawn, the site of ceremonies and receptions

Posted by in: Blog

The Club at Bella Collina has been one of my favorite venues to feature so far for “Ideas to I Do.” It is unbelievable how the attention to detail just makes you feel as though you have been transported to Italy. You don’t even feel like you are in Florida (except for maybe the heat!) In addition to the beautiful, Tuscan inspired architecture, the Club is on top of a hill with amazing views…a great backdrop for any wedding celebration and of course great photos.

I’ve had the opportunity to showcase two weddings at The Club at Bella Collina, the most recent being this past weekend. The bride was involved in working with her planner to design the entire day. Below are some of the photos I took during our shoot to capture the rustic yet chic design the bride was going for. The couple selected the lawn for their ceremony. Blossoms Arrangements of Distinction provided the florals and the gazebo for the ceremony. The  full wedding coordination was done by Lisa and her team at Exquisite Events.

We have the AMAZING one hour time-lapse transformation from the ceremony space being flipped into the reception. We will share it in addition to all the other great IDEAS from this wedding on the site soon!

Cute idea by the bride! This is a generation tree that she saw online and wanted to duplicate with photos from her own family.

Bella Collina Sweetheart Table

Recognize that gazebo from the ceremony? It was transformed into the sweetheart table for the bride and groom during the reception at Bella Collina.
