My fiance and I looked at several venues (Private homes, golf courses, historic areas… you name it) and were starting to get super discouraged because nothing really “wowed” us. I was scrolling through Pinterest one night and came across a picture of this beautiful Tuscany... Read More looking building that said it was in Florida... I didn’t believe this venue was in Florida because it was so gorgeous! We scheduled a visit and we were both amazing. The photos are spectacular but they don't even do the whole property justice when you see everything in person. Once through the gates, the property was breathtaking. Our jaws dropped. We hadn’t even taken but 20 steps into the atrium of Bella Collina let alone met with the woman who was supposed to give us the tour and we both looked at each other and said aloud “this is it!” The tour of the entire property continued to “wow” us. It felt like we weren’t in Florida with the beautiful hills and scenery. We knew we had to get married there. Everyone was so wonderful! Bella Collina even sent me a pre-wedding gift (I won't spoil it for future BC brides and say what the gift was!) None of my girlfriend's venues sent them a gift so it was a pleasant surprise. Thank you BC for being so thoughtful and making a bride feel so special. I never imagined I would have an outdoor ceremony or reception but the entire property was so stunning, it would be a crying shame to waste the beauty of it with an indoor wedding. Our tasting was impressive as well. BC truly felt like a destination wedding abroad in Italy with it’s detail oriented Tuscany style ... Our wedding was a dream come true. Also, not to mention BC has a golf course which was an added plus for my groom! BC definitely knows what it's doing. I don't have a single bad thing to say about them. Get married at BC! You won't regret it!

Bella Collina is the most breathtaking venue I have ever been too! My family and friends quickly understood why I had them fly from NJ to experience the beauty what feels like a Tuscan Castle in the middle of Florida. My family and I are actually members so we frequent the... Read More clubhouse and are very friendly with the staff, so it was a natural choice to have my wedding there. Everything the day of my wedding went perfectly! My guests raved about the food, especially cocktail hour, where we chose to go for a more extended amount of offerings than what the usual package entails. (We offered a market station, flatbread station, oyster bar, sushi bar, and shrimp cocktail, lamb lollipops, beef wellington, spring rolls, and lobster mac and cheese as passed appetizers.) For the dinner we got the filet and salmon duo, which was an excellent choice so guests could have a little of both. The staff was very accommodating and made sure everything went smoothly. Julio made sure that my husband and I had a drink in our hand and got to try everything at cocktail hour and throughout dinner. He was very attentive, as was all the staff. Everything about my wedding at Bella Collina was perfection--I highly recommend it for any bride who wants a major wow factor for what a reasonable price. There is truly nothing else like it!

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.
