    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!!

    Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous

    Although we are not having our wedding here, this venue was absolutely stunning!!! From the second you drive in you feel like you've been transported to the most beautiful place. The lined trees, views etc. When you walk in they totally customize the space to you for youd day. The location where you have your ceremony is probably one of the prettiest I've ever seen! Karen was amazing and patient with us as we made out decision and even offered some discounts for us to try and help make our wedding dreams come true! Unfortunately we didn't feel it could comfortably fit the amount of people we had. If we had a smaller guest count this would absolutely have been a top choice for us!!! If your man loves golfing this is a great choice and they'll let him have a round of golf for free!

    Beautiful Location, Great Service

    Karen is THE BEST! She helped us create a custom package that made our dream location within budget! She patiently covered every single detail with us and helped put our minds at ease because we knew everything was in good hands. The staff on our wedding day were so kind and made sure everything was perfect. They worked with the wedding party and our coordinator to make sure we were good to go - they didn't really reach out to me (bride) or my husband, which was a really nice break on our day. It rarely rains here, but they do have a weather plan B available just in case!
