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!Sent on 12/07/2018

The most AMAZING venue and staff!!!
Bella Collina San Clemente is the most BEAUTIFUL wedding venue and we are SO glad we chose it!!! We did a lot of online research on so many different venues. Bella Collina was the first and only venue we visited in person, and once we saw it, we knew that we wanted to go with it so why waste our time looking at other venues?! The outdoor ceremony area is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS with the circular raised platform and the rolling hills and golf course in the background, pictures don't even do it justice! We had our reception indoor in the main ballroom and it was so beautiful. The large window walls really make the space feel more open and inviting. One really convenient thing about Bella Collina is that the catering comes with the venue. It was really nice to not have to find our own catering on the side. The food was so delicious and our guests loved it!! Karen (Director of Sales & Catering) and Elisa (Event Coordinator) are AMAZING and were so helpful during our entire planning process which spanned almost a year. We worked more with Karen during the beginning of our planning process, as she gave us a tour of the venue and answered our many questions. Then we worked more with Elisa toward the last couple months as she helped us get all the details in order so that everything was perfect (as a bride who is extremely detail-oriented, I appreciated her attention to detail so much!). Karen and Elisa are both so kind and helpful, and we really appreciated how quick they were to respond to our emails as well. With the help of Karen and Elisa, our day went perfectly. They far exceeded our expectations. Our wedding was a month ago now, and every time I see one of our wedding guests, they tell me how beautiful and perfect our wedding was!! Thank you Elisa, Karen, and the whole staff at Bella Collina for making our dream wedding come true!!!!Sent on 05/13/2019

I cannot recommend Bella Collina enough. Our wedding was everything that I have ever wanted. We started falling in love with the site on the drive up, and just fell more deeply in love the more we saw the location, and worked with the staff. Karen is one of my favorite people ever, and I am so lucky that we got to work with her the entire time. Elisa could not have been more amazing leading up to and on the day of, she and her staff executed everything exactly as I envisioned, and she was so professional to work with, and kept things moving exactly as needed. She answered every question that I had with a smile, and was so incredibly helpful. The food was great, the ceremony site could not have been more beautiful, I couldn't have asked for anything more! Also, I highly recommend upgrading to the bistro lights! They added that little something extra special to the reception ballroom!Sent on 12/18/2018

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!
