    The Venue That Has It All!

    When my daughter originally was looking for a wedding venue, she mentioned "a winery in Temecula." Given that we live in N.OC and most guests would be flying in, I didn't think it would be logistically fair for all the guests to have to travel inland after flying into CA. So, I ended up finding Bella Collina in San Clemente which was easy to travel to and had that "winery feel" for pictures and atmosphere. We couldn't have been happier. Planning a wedding during what became a global pandemic and with a military couple living 3000 miles away from the venue could have been a logistical disaster, but Bella Collina pivoted gracefully along the way with us. This venue is vast and absolutely lovely in so many ways. You never share the venue with other weddings; so you get to access all the rooms, natural beauty and whimsy it offers. The staff was professional and caring. I felt the price was reasonable considering what all we received. We didn't have to bicker over chairs, plates, forks etc as all the venue items were included. They also worked well with all of our vendors. It was seamless. We chose to hire our own "day of coordinator" but they have one to hire as well. NOTE: I also highly suggest you book TOP SHELF PHOTO (Shaun Hagen) as he knows this venue completely and your photos will be amazing.

    Dream wedding

    Planning a wedding during a pandemic is no joke. There is so much uncertainty, yet Karen at Bella Collina did everything in her power to not only keep us informed as new information came out, but she succeeded in helping us have the wedding of our dreams while still maintaining Covid friendly safety procedures. I truly can’t picture my wedding any other way, even with all of the pandemic stress. We are unbelievably grateful for Karen and to have had our wedding at such an unbelievably beautiful venue. Our wedding was entirely outdoors and it was magical. Forever grateful and will forever recommend!!

    Bella Collina San Clemente's reply:

    Thank you Jessica for your kinds words. It was my pleasure to assist you planning your wedding. I was so happy to watch you walk down the aisle! It was a magical night!

Karen and staff at the Bella Collina Golf Club are very professional and attentive to your needs on your Big Day. The venue itself is one of my favorites to pickup Brides and Grooms, in our 1939 American Rolls Royce Packards for their takeaways. The venue has amazing views, its spacious, and no real sound restrictions. One of San Clementes' best kept secrets for weddings, special events, and golf ! Remember to mention the Special Venue discount on the Classic Takeaway, when booking the venue at Bella Collina Golf Club for your Special Day!
