A Romantic Vintage Wedding at the Bella Collina in Montverde, Florida
Nicole Artman, a software engineer, 26, and Matt Catron, also a software engineer, 28, sent their first hellos through email and were engaged about two years later. The couple's romantic wedding was filled with soft hues of white, cream and blush. Accents of lace, metal keys, wooden doors and the word "love" also filled their day's decor. "Our colors and theme combined with the beautiful venue produced the perfect Old World vintage feel," says Nicole. The couple held their ceremony and reception at the Tuscan inspired Bella Collina. The ring bearer and flower girl led the way for Nicole with a burlap "Here comes the Bride" sign. She walked down the lush white rose petal covered aisle in a white sleeveless lace gown. ?The bridesmaids' blush pink one-shoulder dresses were made with the same fabric as the groomsmen's ties. Nicole and Matt held their cocktail hour by the venue's reflective pool before moving to the grand lawn for the reception. The couple gave their guests a choice of prosciutto wrapped chicken or filet mignon as the main course. Guests spent the night dancing with the help of the couple's DJ from Sound Entertainment. "We really couldn't have asked for a better wedding day," said Nicole. "We wouldn't change a thing!"
