Bella Collina is INCREDIBLE!!! My heart was set on this venue years ago. I didn't tour anywhere else. Joe and Erin made the entire experience so easy. I was never stressed about anything during the planning process with them. Day of Interviews allowed me to pick all my vendors all in one day, eliminating all the calling around and searching for people available on the same day. My wedding was a fairytale wedding. It was exactly what I dreamed about all those years ago when I fell in love with their venue. All my guests have commented on how incredible the staff of Bella Collina was. Even the smallest of details, they were on top of it. The day ran so smooth. Something was always going on to entertain our guests. At least half our guests have reached out to us to tell us that was the best wedding they had ever been too.
I feel obligated to tell everyone engaged couple I know to entrust their day to Bella Collina. There is NO WAY you will be disappointed. Everyone went above and beyond to make my day perfect! Not even one hiccup! I'm a Bella Bride for life!!
Thank you Joe!

Your search stops here!

There are no words on how amazing our wedding day was! We enjoyed every second of our day. Everything we asked for was done. Our guests were in awe of the beautiful mansion. Having all the vendors in one place is amazing. There is no way I would have been able to coordinate that and having it run so smoothly. Everyone I had the pleasure of meeting and working with at Bella is super nice and friendly. I have no words for Ma, I unfortunately don't have my parents and her gentle, calm, motherly love was just what I needed at the very moment she gave it. Having a wedding at Bella Collina was more than I ever imagined. It was truly a fairy tale! There is not one thing I would have changed! Our day was perfect and we could not ask for anything more.
Erin, Kara, MA, Joe and all other Bella staff thank you for an amazing experience. I'm proud to say I'm a Bella Bride!

Exceptional venue, look no further⠦

We got married at this beautiful venue on 5.14.22. Our wedding was absolutely breathtaking. No other word could describe Bella Collina Mansion besides MAGICAL! Our guests are still commenting on how stunning Bella was & they’ll forever talk about our day. The staff…Where do we begin!!! The owner Joe Destafino=AMAZING HUMAN BEING. Joe & his director sweet Erin made us feel soooo special & welcomed from the 1st day. We had been to Bella as guests for a friend’s wedding in fall of 2019. We had the best time ever. I had NEVER heard of Bella. We fell in love immediately & I told my now husband when we get married my true desire is to get married here. I knew Bella was the ONLY venue before we were even engaged and I’m so grateful my husband saw the same beauty. It’s a beautiful hidden gem. Bella is so special to our hearts. Bella’s staff is family to us. They were nice and helpful from beginning to end. When I say they put so much time, love and hard work behind the scenes it’s an understatement. We had so many personal issues due to surgeries, Covid, a family member possibly not being able to arrive on time from overseas and dealing with rain on our special day. Joe held our hand every step of the way and constantly came up with a new solution. He always had plan A, B & C. We were NEVER in the dark or surprised. There wasn’t a time that he ever missed one question and believe me I had sooo many questions. He has an answer to EVERYTHING. Every single thing has been thought of. He has it down to a science. My husband & I call him genius! 😊 He was so invested in us and his ONLY mission was to make sure our day was truly perfect. There was a fire at Bella 2 months prior to our wedding with so much damage. There wasn’t one single wedding that was missed. The staff worked tiresly to make sure all of us couples get to have the wedding of our dreams regardless of so much repair & stress caused by this awful fire. We couldn’t even tell there was ever a fire. Bella was, is and will ALWAYS be so strong & beautiful. You will NEVER find another venue owner who cares more about his couples more than Joe and you’ll NEVER find a stronger army right behind him. It’s truly a white glove service. Joe & Erin were so prompt every single time and rest of the staff was so dedicated. Bella family exceeded our expectations and we are forever grateful. I recommend anyone who is looking to have a MAGICAL wedding experience to choose Bella Collina. Being a Bella bride is truly an honor. You’ll forever have beautiful memories. 💕#BellaStrong #ForeverPaula #5.14.22
