I am so excited that I FINALLY get to write this wedding review for the wonderful Bella Sera! My Groom and I looked at at least 10 venues all over the Denver/Co Springs area. Bella Sera was the very first appointment that we had. Here we first met with Kayleen who was simply amazing and took a good hour and a half to really get to know us as a couple. I was wowed from the start and in my heart I knew Bella Sera was the correct choice for us, but we needed to take a look at other venues and see what they had to offer and compare. Nothing came close at all and my Groom and I realized that Bella Sera was the correct choice for our wedding. We were not disappointed at all. From start to finish the experience at Bella Sera was simply amazing and they always treated us like family. An aspect that I loved was that Bella Sera was all inclusive and that you can customize everything for your own budget (Bellissimo Package) We loved that it was a one stop shop and this helped us be less stressful during the entire wedding process. All of the vendors used by Bella Sera were amazing as well…so grateful to all of them!! We worked closely with Austin on all of the details of our wedding, and he was our day of coordinator. Austin we are so very grateful for everything that you did!! Austin was detail orientated and so sweet and helpful with all of our questions. Elisabeth the owner helped us with the design session and with designing our cake. I cannot tell you how much we adore you!!! You are the best at what you do and strive to make every wedding unique and beautiful. Our wedding day was June 17th 2017 and the day came off without a hitch. It ran so smoothly from one major event to the next. We got compliments all night long about the food, music and of course the beautiful décor and ambiance that Bella Sera created. I remember showing up in order to get ready for the wedding and saw only a small amount of what was already done. I could not hold it in and cried at how simply beautiful it was and that my dream wedding and vision was actually happening. Our wedding day was so amazing and we could not have done it without the amazing staff at Bella Sera!! You made my dream wedding come true…I can never thank you enough but hope this will show you how much you have done for us! We would recommend Bella Sera to anyone looking for a venue…simply the best. Much love, Sarah and Steve Broll
A perfect choice for a perfect wedding! We toured over 20 Denver Area venues before deciding to go with the Bella Sera for our May 2017 wedding. We had some close runners up, but in the end, we are so grateful we went with Bella Sera! The value of the inclusions you get with their packages compared to their competitors will instantly put your mind at ease (we did the ‘Bellissimo’ Package.) With a DJ and Photographer already included, as well as a gorgeous ceremony & reception site all under one roof, you’ll be thanking your stars a few months from now that you don’t have to worry about the hassle of putting all those details together. (The DJ & photographer we got both did outstanding.) Elizabeth and John are fantastic owners to work with. John drove an hour away just to meet with us and work out a package that would be the right fit. Once you sign the contract, you can trust they’ll stick by your side and work with you to get the wedding you want. Elizabeth worked with us to put together our custom design and décor for our ceremony and reception, which was all included and they do the set up for you day of. Austin, our coordinator, was especially helpful. He made sure everything came together, and kept our planning schedule on track from our food tasting to our final meeting and rehearsal. He was also available via text and email with any questions we had about anything wedding related. On the day of, everything went flawless. All the staff paid excellent attention to the smallest details, had headsets to communicate with each other, made excellent use of time and space to give seamless transitions for us and our guests. All our friends and family gave our wedding rave reviews. They loved the venue, ceremony, reception, décor, and all the little details included in our wedding. We would highly recommend Bella Sera to anyone who is getting married and wants the best experience!
My Fairy Tale day would not have been brought to life if it weren't for the remarkable staff at The Bella Sera. The first day that I walked into the venue, I was met with the most heartfelt and sincere woman that I could have come across, and her first question to me was "how much fun do you want your special day to be?" That is not typically the first question a bride is asked when looking at a venue. But I quickly started to realize that The Bella Sera is not your average venue. Elizabeth opened my eyes to what makes a wedding memorable and enjoyable by all who are there, and not just the beautiful decorations (which they build for you). After spending just 30 minutes with Elizabeth and touring the building, I knew this was thee place! And it only got better from here! Bella Sera really focuses on personal touches to make your special day unique. They want to know who you are, what you like, how you fell in love with one another, and any idea you would like to make into a reality to express your unique love as a couple. I was set up with a personal coordinator and design coordinator. We had various meetings to organize and plan everything that we wanted our day to be like, look like, sound like, taste like and more. I particularly had a very detailed design in mind and Austin, Elizabeth and Mandy were so patient with me and organized my visions into reality. The most comforting part about the whole process, was seeing how organized and detailed they were with my planning. Every time I came for a design meeting, or food question, they had my file right on hand and I could see everything organized and coming together right before my eyes. I knew that on the day of my wedding, everything would be set as planned and nothing would be forgotten. Their organization skills are amazing! The big day!!! I truly could not have pictured a more flawless day! Everything was perfect. The decor was more beautiful than I ever realized that it could have been. The music put on by the in-house DJ was impeccable and he matched every moment seamlessly. The food was delicious and hot. Their signature cocktail was a huge hit and the guests loved it! The in-house photographer not only did an incredible job on engagement photos, but he captured my special day with such elegance, fun and love. While planning my wedding, I heard from so many married couples that the day goes by so fast and becomes a blur. But Bella Sera makes it so that even though the day may pass quickly (because you are having so much fun), you will walk away remembering so much because your only job is to have fun and be "in the moment." Bella Sera staff are focusing on the time of events, when things need to happen and what/who goes where. It truly is like a scene from the movie "The Wedding Planner." All staff have ear pieces and are in communication with each other at all times. This is to ensure that all your planning is executed perfectly, and you don't need to worry. After the wedding! After the last dance was danced, and the last toast drank to, and everyone returned home and back to normal, these were the comments that I was flooded with from family and friends: "Wow, amazing, incredibly beautiful, so much fun, gorgeous, very enjoyable." And that is only the start of the endless compliments my husband and I have heard. And it's all because of the staff and venue of The Bella Sera. They made my dreams come true, and I can't thank them enough!
I've dreamed of my wedding for so long and the Bella Sera made my dream into reality! Anything I wanted they were behind me! its a beautiful venue and the parking for guests is wonderful! All of my guests went on and on about how beautiful our night was! I highly recommend this wedding venue and once you meet the owners and everyone that runs the venue you'll fall in love as much as we did!
Bella Serra is a fantastic venue. The venue itself is gorgeous, and is capable of accomodating any need, and we had many. Austin was wonderful to work with and made the entire process easy and stress free. The DJ, and Photographers provided by Bella Sera were extraordinary. We could not have hand picked better people to help us with our wedding. We would recommend Bella Sera to anyone as a first option. Cannot thank them enough!
Looking for a venue for our wedding was one of the hardest tasks of the whole planning process. We finally came around to touring the Bella Sera and it was instantly a no brainer who we had to choose. No other venue offered us as much for the price that the Bella Sera did. We are so grateful to them! They made the day run so smoothly and we all had SO much fun! A special thank you to Austin for helping me through all of the decisions and helping us make our wedding beautiful. No matter what ideas we threw at him, he helped us find a way to make it work :) Thank you guys! Our day was so memorable!
My Husband and I can not imagine our special day at any other venue other then the Bella Sera! Elisabeth and her even staff are the best in this business. Not only that but the genially care about each and every bride and the groom that walks into their venue. They helped make our day so special and personal to us as a couple. The planning part is always stressful but when you have the amazing people at the Bella Sera helping you the stress is lessened immensely. with their help you can truly enjoy every part of planning your special day. It was a truly amazing day and after months and months of planning it was so wonderful to walk in the day of the wedding and everything was set up and ready to go. Everything was perfect the decorations, the cake, the dancing, the flowers, the pictures, truly everything was perfect and more than we dreamed! Our wedding was perfect thanks to the Elisabeth and the Bella Sear staff. Kyle and Carissa
When you begin your search for wedding venues and tour different places you get the sense that each venue is trying to push you into their mold and make you fit within their pre-made puzzle. This was not the case for the Bella Sera. From the first phone call inquiry I made to the Bella Sera I could immediately sense the difference. Many other venues I had called had me off the phone in less than 60 seconds and weren’t interested in answering questions. Julie spoke to me for over fifteen minutes and answered my questions and addressed my concerns. I knew I had found the right place. In addition to a stunning venue, when you choose Bella Sera you also get access to an incredible team of individuals who ensure that your wedding is truly yours. Our wedding was delicately crafted and a new puzzle was created just for us. Bella Sera is a family owned venue and they take immense pride in each and every wedding. Elisabeth was our event coordinator and she worked with us to create our dream wedding down to every minute detail. Elisabeth led us through a design session to help us create the look and feel of our wedding and also a production meeting to help ensure the day would run smoothly. On the day of our wedding everything was choreographed and planned with precision there were absolutely no snags. I have always worried that I would be stressed on my wedding day but the morning of my wedding when I arrived at the venue everything was arranged and set up beautifully. I was handed a drink and allowed to relax. We used three of the Bella Sera’s preferred vendors, DJ Perry Washington, Walnut Street Photography and Caricature Artist, Jason Sauer. Having a preferred list of vendors was a time savor for us because all of the people that the Bella Sera chooses are trustworthy and incredible at what they do. It also helped bring the evening together. Our guests couldn’t have had more positive things to say about their experience at our wedding. This venue even takes the time to ensure the kids are fed first at dinner and happy kids make happy parents and, in turn, a very happy bride and groom! The food was delicious, the decor was intricate and unique, and our DJ and photographers did an outstanding job. The value you get when choosing this venue is innumerable. From the wedding planning, to decorating, to access to preferred vendors, and the dedication of the people at The Bella Sera, I would argue you wouldn’t find a better deal anywhere. If you choose to have your wedding here you will be in the very best hands possible. Thank you to Elisabeth, John, Austin and the rest of the Bella Sera team for giving us the truly magical and unforgettable wedding of our dreams! Leela & Randy
We began looking for a venue in March of 2017 for an early July 2017 wedding. Our search began online with various specialized search engines for wedding services. After compiling a list of about fifteen venues to check out we began calling and sending emails. Elizabeth from Bella Sera replied to our email inquiry within two hours of it being sent, even though it was after hours, to arrange a phone call at our convenience since we were out of state. We spoke with her briefly about our timeline and what we were looking for before scheduling a meeting to tour the venue. Our first meeting at the venue can only be described at heaven sent. John, the owner, gave the tour himself and took the time to get to know our family as we moved through each room. What I really appreciated about the tour was the time John and the staff spent getting to know us even before signing on with them. The personalized service and all-inclusive services made the choice easy for us. Several of the other venues we had looked at tried to pressure us into signing immediately. Touring with John and seeing all the options available with upfront prices sold us on Bella Sera. After we signed our contract we worked with Austin to plan our wedding. Our being out of state made the most mundane tasks and choices harder for Austin but he was very accommodating to our needs. Austin put a tremendous amount of energy into getting to know who we were as a couple, which made the selection of colors and décor a breeze. We were not the easiest people to get a hold of due to our crazy schedules but he made it all work to create a beautiful look for our wedding. We put a lot of trust into his abilities and we were not disappointed. As the wedding approached Austin put us in contact with Daleen who would be our wedding day coordinator. I cannot say enough about Daleen. Her planning and organization with the most mundane logistics of the rehearsal and wedding day that I never would have thought about made our day perfect. She was there for me from the minute I arrived to get ready to the final goodbye as we left the venue. Daleen checked in on us frequently and helped acquire items that seemed to have disappeared from our prep bags. Honestly, she felt like a family member by the end of it. The services were such that you would expect to pay a high premium for the all-inclusive services but we actually saved several thousand dollars when compared to the other venues we looked at. Our wedding day was exactly what we wanted it to be thanks to the staff at Bella Sera.
I would give them a million stars if I could. The Bella Sera is the best for so many reasons. They are the most economical for the quality that you get. Their staff is so professional. The venue is beautiful. They listen to your wants and make it happen. They really take care of everything so it is almost stress-free. The actual day ran so smooth due to their amazing staff. I recommend the Bella Sera to everyone I know.
Bella Sera was the most amazing place anyone could ever get married at they fixed any problem that happened didn't even want to worry yes about anything that happened they just made our day so special and if I could I would marry my wife everyday for the rest of my life at the Bella sera. Everyone there that day was so amazing they were fast at doing what they were supposed to it was the best day of my life and I thank them 100 times over for putting on the best wedding for my wife and I
The Bella sera was such an amazing venue and had an even better team to work with! We had such a flawless day and all of our guests were absolutely stunned celebrating our special day. I would highly recommend this venue the coordinators and decoration team for your dream wedding! Thanks again for he best day ever
My husband and I held our wedding at the Bella Sera Event Center on April 28,2017. It was the most amazing day! The staff at the Bella Sera did such an amazing job making sure everything the way we wanted it. From the tour to the very end. They were understanding, communicative, and just there when I needed a simple answer. I could not have imagined going anywhere else for my wedding. Also, the DJ and the photographer they had for our wedding! Just like the Bella Sera staff these guys were just as amazing. Absolutely love the Bella Sera. We have people who attended are wedding still talking about it! :) Thank you to the Bella Sera for making our day one we will never forget! :)
My husband and I married at the Bella Sera June 29th. I am so pleased with everyone. John and Elizabeth touched our hearts from the initial meeting. The packages that they offer are very affordable and include way more then any other venue we inquired on! The reception was beautiful it was more than I expected. We ate the Chicken Poblano dish, it was amazing! We got so many great comments from family on how delicious it was! I can't say enough about our coordinator Austin, he was so patient from beginning to end! His attention to detail is exceptional and listening to my concerns was a priority, reassuring me everything would be great. I would recommend this venue for any occasion not only for its beauty but for the beauty of the people!!
Having our wedding at the Bella Sera Event Center was a great experience! Not only was the staff very helpful and accommodating, they worked quickly to solve any problems. My grandfather accidently knocked over a vase full of water prior to the ceremony starting. The staff was quick to replace the broken piece and clean up the mess. I had no idea this occurred until after the wedding! Austin was wonderful to work with! He was always so helpful and responded quickly, which I greatly appreciated. We were informed in the beginning that the day-of coordinator could change but we were thrilled to stay with Austin! The Bellissimo Package was a great way to go and eliminated a lot of the typical wedding planning stress. It was really important to me that my husband and I or our family didn’t have to clean up all night after the event. Bella Sera takes care of everything, including all of the cleaning! The venue is already beautiful but the staff works hard to make the décor unique for each couple. We received so many compliments from our guests about the venue and the décor. It was so convenient to have pretty much all of the vendors hired through Bella Sera. Not only did I not have to find vendors myself, Bella Sera had already vetted them. Lastly, the food was excellent and there was plenty for everyone. Honestly, my husband and I have no complaints! Thank you Bella Sera and staff for helping our wedding go off without a hitch! - Zach & Breanna Smith
The Bella Sera was able to help me make my day everything I had hoped it would be, AND MORE. I was an out of state bride, planning my wedding from North Carolina. They made the process manageable, fun, and took so much of the stress away! Their preferred vendors are amazing (shoutout to DJ Joe and Noah from Walnut Street Photgraphy) as were their entire staff (Alisha was my saving grace!) Everyone was prepared and professional. Every one of my guests that I've spoken with since the wedding has told me how much they enjoyed the night, and I attribute most of that to the work that everyone at the Bella Sera put in. They took care of set up and tear down, and even bagged up my belongings (welcome table and extra favors) for me at the end of the night. The design meeting was awesome - they have so many choices for ceremony and reception decorations it would be impossible not to find something that fits your style just right. And they were able to help me come up with a design that fit me and my theme. Amazing people. Amazing vibes. Amazing night.
When we first started planning our wedding it was very overwhelming, but once we booked at Bella Sera they eliminated so much stress. They have the whole package. Design sessions to help bring our vision to life, a wonderful food tasting, amazing vendors for DJ and photographer and a day of coordinator who was there not only the day of, but through the whole planning process. It was so helpful when our EC Austin would email us with information about timelines and fun ideas for the day of. Anytime we needed something or had questions he was easily reached and responded quickly. The venue is beautiful, and staff is very professional and efficient. One of the greatest things about this venue was arriving on the wedding day and being able to relax and enjoy the moments before the ceremony because they had all the decor set up and everything ready to go. It was all perfect and if I needed something the staff was able to handle it. If I had to do it all over again I would still book this venue, as they are absolutely the best wedding specialists and care about their clients and their big day.
WOW!! What can we say other than that we received the WOW factor we were told we would get. The best venue, service, staff, everything you could ever imagine or ask for. Every detail was taken care of by the Bella Sera staff, so that when the day came to show up to the venue on our big day all we had to do was literally show up. Everything was decorated to perfection, the mood was just as we had hoped, dinner tasted great and everything went as well as we could ever possibly wish for it to go, all thanks to Austin! Dealing with one bride is an ordeal but when you have two brides, well needless to say he handled it all with a smile. The Cake was delicious, Dj Perry was the best and Andrea and Mason were amazing photographers. All of our guests were amazed at the detail and truly enjoyed the wedding and reception. So many amazing memories were created. THANK YOU Bella Sera for putting in so much effort and care into what you do.
Loved everything about our experience at Bella Sera. Austin was so amazing to work with!!
We chose Bella Sera because the owners attention to detail and their passion for the event. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Elisabeth knew exactly my ideal design while Austin perfectly executed our big day. I could not have asked for a better celebration. I can honestly say that I have never experienced a more beautiful reception site (not being biased that it was my own). We had so many compliments on the food, decor, and entire experience. I am so glad that we chose Bella Sera as our wedding venue, it was simply amazing.
The Bella Sera was incredible. They thought of everything so I didn't have to. Austin, our event coordinator, walked us through the whole planning process all the way to wedding day. The venue looked like a fairy tale. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our choice to use the Bella Sera.
This Venue is Absolutely Amazing the whole process was smooth and they payed attention to every single detail the staff is the best around I wouldn't change anything about the way they do things because it's PERFECT THANK YOU ELIZABETH, JOHN, AUSTIN AND EVERYONE ELSE ON THE TEAM WE LOVED EVEYTHINGS ABOUT IT!!!!!

Bella Sera was amazing!!! Elizabeth made every step of my wedding process as simple and stress-free as possible for me. The venue looked gorgeous on my wedding day. It all turned out better than I could of imagined. On the day of the wedding the Bella Sera staff was great, and took wonderful care of me and all of my guests. I have heard nothing but pleasant comments from those who attended. Everyone knows planning weddings can be so stressful but Bella Sera made my special day extra special; and I could not be more grateful.
