What a beautiful location to get married. An almost Tuscan feel in Florida. Over all we were very happy with the location and most of the staff at Bella Collina. With it being the only venue we viewed we knew instantly that it was the place for us to get married. We opted for... Read More the intimate package with only 14 guests in total. The food was quite expensive, but as there was a $2000 minimum spend for the food for 10 adults and 4 children this was soon covered ($160 per adult for the entre). We had no rehersal, no co-ordinator ($1500) and quite a stress free day apart from the very forward, bordering on the rude side Butler who was telling us how we should be seated and introduced to our family even though we were happy with our seating plan. The initial cost for the intimate package was $2500. We never saw much of the cocktail hour as we were away getting our bride and groom photos around the lovely estate. We found the Spa could have been more helpful at times as they seemed to know what was going on, but often weren't very proactive as they use an external stylist who can only communicate when they are not in their primary place of work. We would recommend this venue for your special day

We were very happy with the overall result for our special day at Bella Collina. When we first visited the place we instantly knew that we wanted to celebrate our wedding there - it's just out of this world! You would not expect to see this kind of place in Florida. With that... Read More said, we went with their intimate wedding package which compared to their initial proposal for both Ceremony and Reception it ended up becoming 3500$+ They did not figure in any of the extra service charges for butler passed food, locker room luncheon, a more realistic menu choice, and they wanted to charge us for every single change we wanted to make (obviously so that you don't make any). They were not flexible about changing drink options, it was very hard to get an answer about it until the very last minute. They offered their estate homes to spend the night before the wedding and after, and we liked the idea so we decided on having a rehearsal dinner and spend the night at the Estate the night before the big day. Expect another 1200$ for the Rehearsal and 1300$ for the Estate. They penciled the date in for the rehearsal, but we couldn't really book it until 3 months before the wedding. They ended up booking another wedding on that same day, so we had to go with a luncheon instead of a dinner and were told to make sure to be out of there by 2pm. I thought it would work out since we were supposed to check into the Estate right after, but was told on the day that it would not be available until 4pm. My family ended up waiting 3 hours until the house was available at their restaurant and were not told to leave, so this was good. It didn't seem to affect the following wedding. I think this was unfortunate and poorly planned in my opinion. Convincing us to stay at the Estate and do a rehearsal, and then book a wedding on top of our plans and not give us any real solutions. Despite all of this, when we were finally able to check in the Estate was fantastic and the Rehearsal was a great turn out. They also offered hair dressing options, but when I called to inquire they told me that our wedding was on a Monday - their day off- so they didn't offer their services unless it was a minimum of 3 people. When I found 3 people and called again, they told me that they had already made plans and were not available. I was not happy with this, the 3 people who were interested had to do their own hair and have the bridal party help out. Pre ceremony - My family was not happy with how the seating arrangement went during the ceremony. Apparently they were rudely told by the butler to sit down and ended up having almost everyone sitting on the bride's side and left a bunch of empty seats on the groom's side which caught my eye and made it very distracting during the ceremony. Cocktail hour - I would have liked to have more time during the cocktail hour. They only give you 1 hour, so the bride and groom go elsewhere to get their portrait pictures taken and miss it completely, after we hired the music, butler passed food and made a point to choose the spot, it was a real shame the bride and groom miss it completely. Some people told me that it went so fast they weren't even able to try any of the food. We had more than enough time to plan out accordingly in my opinion and had extra time during the reception which could have been allotted to the cocktail hour.

Bella Collina does it ALL!

When my fiance and I decided to start looking at venues, our two requirements were that we wanted to get married outside and we wanted to have a lake view. Once our wedding planner suggested Bella Collina and took us to tour the property, we were hooked. There wasn't a place... Read More in the world we would rather get married. From the beginning, the staff at Bella Collina took excellent care of us. They paid attention to every detail, every need, every request that we had. They allowed us to change our minds and change them again until we were thrilled with the outcome. Our wedding was literally like a fairytale- it was better than I could have ever dreamed when it all came together. On the day of, the staff was attentive to all of my wedding party, my vendors, my guests, and especially my family. Their menu options and food were amazing and very versatile, with something for everyone. The locker rooms where the bridal party get ready are beyond compare- huge bathtubs, brightly lit mirrors, giant lockers, and lots of seating to enjoy each others' company. Also, they allow the groomsmen to play golf on their course the day of your event to keep them occupied while the women get ready. I would highly recommend Bella Collina to anybody who is able to afford it- you won't have any regrets once you see your dream day come to fruition!

Our ladies locker room attendant, Sonya was also super sweet and very attentive. The guys locker room attendant... Read More Julio on the other hand was aggressive and pushy and I did not like how he argued with my photographers and my wedding coordinator! Bella makes you pay for a wedding coordinator, they should let the wedding coordinator do their job and not have their staff get in the way or contradict them! This was very annoying!! Also have your guys be prepared to pay $85 for a 12 pack of beer, which is absolutely ridiculous, if they are hanging out in the locker room and drinking before the wedding. Other then that everything else went smoothly, the food was delicious and our wedding day was amazing! I would choose Bella again as my venue if I had to do it all over again!


THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VENUE

From the moment I saw this venue, I knew that it was the one. Everyone at the wedding was seriously taken back by how beautiful everything was. I promise you that you cannot go wrong with this place. The only thing I HATED was that they are very restricting with vendors you can... Read More have. EVERY vendor must have a million dollar insurance policy. Many companies have this, however its hard to save money on cheaper vendors (ex. a soloist that you know personally, a cake company you personally know, etc.) There is no wiggle room on this whatsoever. Overall, I loved it -and am sure that there is no possible way that anyone could not enjoy their wedding at this beautiful spot!

Dreams Do Come True -- Perfect Wedding Venue!

Bella Collina is an absolutely stunning venue! My husband and I got married on May 30th, 2014 and I must say I do not regret anything about this venue. All of the staff (Erin, Melanie, and Julio) were extremely helpful, friendly, and willing to work with you to help you make the... Read More right decision for your wedding. My husband and I really liked that the venue was private. This allowed the Bella wedding venue staff to totally devote their attention to us. There are many venues in Orlando where there are 4 or more weddings going on at the same time. We didn't want to be just another number, and we didn't want our guests to get lost and go to the wrong wedding ceremony! 95% of our families were traveling from out of town- however it was still very accommodating for our guests. We secured the hotels nearby in Clermont which were only 5 minutes away from the venue. Also, it was FREE parking at Bella Collina! (You'd be surprised, not every venue has free parking) We chose to have an Outdoor Ceremony, using the Ceremony Lawn (with us facing the lake view) and to have the reception in the Ballroom. At the time they were still constructing the new ballroom, and we decided to take a gamble (since we had not seen it yet). However we were confident that the Ballroom would be a great choice, in which it was. For cocktail hour we used the Reflection Pond/Patio area - gorgeous! Our family was able to enjoy the rolling hills and lovely lake view (and it had stopped raining as soon as the ceremony started!) Everything about this place is just stunning. The bridal suite was very elegant and spacious. It reminded me of a guest house, it has huge locker room space, a living room, a nook for food/snacks, and a large bathing area. On the day of our wedding I actually used one of the bath tubs there to relax and get ready. I had our wedding party arrive in the morning so that we could just relax all day and not be rushed. It was PERFECT! We listened to music, we got our hair/nails/makeup done, the butler was there with us throughout the entire process - refreshing the water, the snacks, and getting us whatever we needed. Talk about being pampered!!! Unfortunately it did rain on my wedding day, so we did not have the ceremony outdoors (which was a blessing in disguise). Everyone including the venue staff worked with me to make sure the wedding would be beautiful and I agreed to have the ceremony inside the Ballroom. We were the first wedding to have an indoor ceremony at the brand new ballroom! It was still beautiful and they pulled it all together. Again, no regrets and it looked amazing. All of the vendors were great as well and they all worked cohesively together to ensure a smooth transition from ceremony to cocktail to reception. I HIGHLY recommend that you use the vendors off of their vendor list, especially for Photography, Music, Cake, and Flowers. The reason is because these vendors know the venue. The photographer knew all of the best kept secrets for wedding photos. Overall, the service was flawless and the venue was amazing. I honestly do not have a negative review or remark for Bella Collina. For some of the brides who are cringing at the price, I can assure you that this venue is worth the value. This was our dream venue and thankfully our dream came true! Trust me, you won't regret it! If you want to know what vendors I used and HIGHLY recommend, check out my blog on CourtneyGavin.com
