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!!Sent on 01/03/2021

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

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!Sent on 10/16/2019
Bella Collina San Clemente's reply:Thank you Sarah! It was our pleasure to assist you and Dennis during your planning and on wedding day!

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!
