BREATHAKING. A FAIRYTALE. PERFECT. THE BEST DAY EVER. The minute you pull into the Bella Collina drive you feel like you are in another country! The scenery, food, THE SERVICE, and little things that they do to make your day grand, are just absolutely amazing. Our guests still say our wedding was one of the most beautiful they've ever been to. I would HIGHLY recommend Bella Collina.
This is the most beautiful venue i have looked at but the price for food is too expensive for 100 guest. I wish they would let other caterers in or at least make a more affordable menu. I'm disappointed that i have to turn it away. It meets everything i am looking for, except for the price of food. It's a very beautiful venue.
Amazing venue! You don't even feel like your in Florida. The staff was amazing throughout the planning process and the day of. It's a "one stop shop." You can have your hair and makeup done at the spa, have your ceremony and reception all in one location!
I absolutely loved this venue so did my guests. My guest were amazed by the beauty and architecture of Bella Collina. My wedding was like no other. The pictures came out so beautiful, I just can't stop looking at them. Everything was a total perfection.
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 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.
honestly, this is the nicest wedding venue in floridaReviewed on 1/07/2016 Laura N
This is was the most beautiful wedding that I could have ever imagined. I wanted to have our wedding at the ritz carlton and once we stepped onto bella collina property we were completely sold. the entire property is absolutely stunning. every single one of my guests raved about how beautiful the venue was. there were so many places to take pictures because everything is so beautiful. the tuscany inspiration is just jaw dropping, the views are gorgeous, the clubhouse has very nice rooms and several options for the ceremony and reception. this is honestly the nicest wedding venue location in florida. the staff was very accommodating and they did everything in their power to make our wedding perfect. The dinner was delicious, and our wedding came our absolutely perfect. I hope one day we have a daughter so that she can get married here. We looked at other options around central florida and we almost flew our entire family to Europe because we couldn't find a venue that we loved until we found bella coliina. This was the best decision we made, it was just breathtaking.
Bella Collina does it ALL!Reviewed on 12/03/2015
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 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!
Bella Collina is absolutely breathtaking. Every inch of the property is a stunning photo backdrop - all of which is available to you if you have an event there. The catering is exquisite. The staff that tends to the bride and groom on the wedding day...I cannot even begin to describe how amazing they are. They were constantly asking my husband and me if we needed anything, bringing us our favorite drink, they were always close by in case we needed anything. Dana is great and knows the venue so well and can answer any and every question you could have. Gina is always quick to respond to emails and has such a positive attitude. Three months later, my guests are still raving over Bella, and actually thanking me for inviting them to such an amazing place. I started my own event planning company (Affinity Event Creative) and I cannot wait to take my brides there to plan their dream wedding!
The BEST DAY EVER!!!Reviewed on 5/29/2015 Erika L
JUST MARRIED 05/24/2015 :) -- As my Fiancé and I first drove up to Bella Collina we immediately said to each other this place is beyond breathtaking! As we continued to tour the property it just continued to get more and more beautiful! At some point while we were visiting the venue, we both took a second to step away from it all and say to each other we HAVE to get married here, it is phenomenal. Bella Collina, really made our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER. Not only were all of our guests continuing to complement how perfect everything was from the ceremony to the reception they could not stop saying how beautiful our venue was. Sean and I felt so blessed to be able to spend the one-day that is most important to us with all of our family and friends. We really did feel as if we were in another country with all of the closest people to us. It was an exquisite day! The staff and service we received all the way up to our wedding day was beyond great! Every single person really made us feel special and we couldn't have picked a better place to call our wedding venue. If you are in search of your PERFECT day, you will know just like we did that Bella Collina is hands down the best venue for your wedding day!! -Thank you, Bella Collina for OUR perfect day!! - Mr. & Mrs. O’Neill.
Bella CollinaReviewed on 5/16/2015 Sarah B
The views were amazing and the venue was beautiful, many people thought that it did not look typically like Florida. Everything was wonderfully coordinated and I was able to actually enjoy my wedding.
Perfect place for a perfect wedding!!!Reviewed on 4/22/2015 Maria Alejandra P
We were very pleased to have the wedding and reception at such a gorgeous venue. Perfect service, food, drinks..etc... Was such a special day for everyone, a unique wedding...
Beautiful BellaReviewed on 4/13/2015
Bella Collina was the perfect venue for our wedding! We loved everything about it! The sales and catering staff were amazing in helping us prepare for our big day. Our ladies locker room attendant, Sonya was also super sweet and very attentive. The guys locker room attendant 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 VENUEReviewed on 4/07/2015 Kira O
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 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!
Breathtaking!Reviewed on 4/01/2015 Nicole S
I was fortunate enough to have my dream wedding at Bella Collina. Bella Collina is a very tuscan, Italian inspired venue. The staff is very professional and courteous! I worked with Gina day in and day out with many questions and changes and she was always professional and respectful. Bella Collina was very flexible when we had to move the location of the reception mid way through the night. In minutes, we had a smooth and flawless transition with the help of their staff. I could not have dreamed of a more magical day. Each day looking at our wedding gives me butterflies.
Amazing Venue!Reviewed on 3/24/2015
Having my wedding at Bella Collina was as close to an Italian wedding as it gets! The setting is beautiful and the scenery is amazing. All of my guests were in awe of how beautiful my venue was. Everyone at Bella Collina was a pleasure to work with, and could not do enough to help. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beginning of our wedding day until the very end. Beautiful venue and amazing staff - I cannot rate The Bella Collina highly enough!
Amazing Venue!Reviewed on 2/24/2015 Maria F
Bella Collina is such a magical place! The staff are tremendously attentive and keep everything running the day of like a well-oiled machine. You simply cannot beat the views and the Tuscan glamour of the place. The wedding was the best night of my life so far and driving away at the end of the evening, I felt (cliched as this may sound) like a princess, and was certainly treated at such by everyone there. Thank you to everyone at Bella for such a wonderful experience. It was perfection. My husband and I were both incredibly impressed, as were my parents and all our guests.
Italy in FloridaReviewed on 2/04/2015 Lorena V
Bella Collina is just a dream venue. When we visited it we had no doubt we would be getting married there. They were very helpful throughout the process. I am a very organized person, so I loved how they were very organized as well. Their contact was constant throughout the whole year of preparation, and they were very prompt to answer any questions I had. Thank you Bella Collina! We had the wedding of our dreams because of you!
Gorgeous Venue!Reviewed on 12/24/2014 Katie H
I picked this venue for multiple reasons. The 2 highlights for me were that the architecture is absolutely gorgeous so all of your pictures have stunning backgrounds and you are the only wedding on a given day so you aren't competing with other brides and their guests. They have indoor and outdoor space so you can move your location the day of in the case of inclement weather. I absolutely loved this venue!
Dreams Do Come True -- Perfect Wedding Venue!Reviewed on 11/23/2014 Courtney T
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 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

A Fairytale WeddingReviewed on 10/10/2014 Erika L
From the first day we went to view the location to the night we got in the getaway car this venue was a dream to work with. Every staff member is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had prior to the wedding. On wedding day, we had a short thunderstorm before the ceremony and they always had a plan. This place knows their stuff and they will cater to your every need. The groomsmen and the bridesmaids each get their own butler in the locker rooms before the ceremony to help out. Ours were Selena and Julio and they were awesome! The food is probably the best I have ever tasted -- just wait til that food tasting! And of course the views are breathtaking in the middle of hilly Montverde. I had to use the rain location for my ceremony and it looked AMAZING. How often can brides say that? We had a small group of about 60 people and they fit perfectly in the club's restaurant, but they also offer a beautiful ballroom for larger parties. (Seriously this is no ordinary ballroom.) You really do feel like you're in a fairytale while you are there. I love this place and I couldn't be happier! (Married Sept 28, 2014)
Absolutely Amazing!Reviewed on 10/01/2014 Anna R
Bella Collina is truly a venue that you have to see to believe! I found it on The Knot when we first set a date and was intrigued by the photos. I showed it to my now-husband and we both thought it was unique and worth a visit. So we made an appointment to go see it and before we'd even set foot into the Clubhouse we were sold! The staff was continuously friendly and helpful regarding every aspect of our planning. The catering team assisted us in putting together a fantastic menu and we were so excited for the big day! Our wedding was in the evening but we were allowed into the locker room facilities early in the day to start getting ready. It was perfect to have so much room to spread out as the bridesmaids got ready for the ceremony. And the food served while we dressed was delicious! Selena (I believe that was her name. I feel terrible that I can't remember for sure!) was our attendant in the women's locker room and she is truly a Renaissance woman. Anything that we needed, she was ready to help! She even took control of steaming my gown. I never saw the men's locker room but my husband and his groomsmen were raving all day about what a great time they had relaxing in there. There was a last-minute ceremony location change due to weather but it was still a beautiful set-up and we were so happy with it. After the ceremony Julio drove us around with our photographer for photos and he was so sweet. He even brought us some of the sangria being served at our cocktail hour! He chatted with us for a bit before it was time for us to make our entrance at the reception and he is such a wonderful man. With Julio and Selena both being fantastic, my husband and I felt spoiled all day! The reception was an absolutely gorgeous evening. We were in the new ballroom and the space was lovely with the sunset during dinner. The Bella Collina serving staff was extremely considerate to everyone and did a great job during our meal. And dinner itself was amazing! Our guests were complimenting the food all night. Everyone was completely astounded by the venue all day. Our families and bridal party members were treated like royalty before the wedding and all of our guests were in awe of the location. Even during the cocktail hour we saw guests taking their own photos all over Bella because it's so beautiful. My husband and I are still getting comments from people who were there about how gorgeous the day was and what a great venue we chose. We knew going into the planning with Bella that it would be pricey. But we truly felt like we got what we paid for. Having our wedding at this amazing place was like a dream and I still can't believe how beautiful it all was. The entire staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was spectacular! It was the most amazing wedding we could have imagined and if we had it all to do over again we wouldn't change a thing.
The Most Beautiful VenueReviewed on 7/18/2014 Stephanie W
My husband and I are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Bella Collina! The property is incredible, as soon as we saw it in person we knew that no other venue would compare! From beginning to end the staff was so helpful and always prompt in answering our questions and making suggestions. They also recommended our planner/florist Vangie De La Concha who was AMAZING! Our wedding day went perfectly due in part to the professionalism and attention to detail of the staff. We would highly recommend Bella Collina for any couple wanting a truly beautiful and special wedding!
Amazing Venue and Great StaffReviewed on 7/10/2014 Leslie T
We held our wedding at Bella Collina! It's was just perfect; out of a magazine!! I highly suggest Bella Collina for that Italian vibe wedding! It is just gorgeous and has so many different areas to utilize for every bride.
wedding of my dreamsReviewed on 4/27/2014 Aline C
Bella Collina was a dream come true! All my guests cannot stop talking about how it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. The food was amazing, the entire venue is breathtaking and the staff was very professional throughout the process and on our wedding day. I cannot wait for the photographers' photos to arrive, I am already in love with just the photos friends took with their phones. We did the rehearsal dinner at the corporate house, but we were not allowed to see the house until the day my husband's family had arrived there. It was difficult to figure out table set up, how much space we had and lighting quality when we weren't able to visit or given a floor plan to help plan. However, everything worked out great at rehearsal dinner. The house is absolutely beautiful, we had an amazing event! I definitely recommend Bella Collina. After you go visit Bella, there is no other venue you can compare it with. Thank you Bella Collina for everything! It surpassed our wedding dreams
