About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Introduction

Our beautiful 2 story lakeside lodge was built in 1925. The Italian inspired architecture and stunning views have made it a popular vacation spot for the elite and famous in the past. Now an exclusive hire venue, it has been tastefully renovated to complement the original cypress ceilings, grand staircases, and period chandeliers throughout.

With an indoor capacity of 150 guests in the ballroom, or outdoor capacity of 200 guests either in the courtyard or on the lawn overlooking the lake, Bella Cosa is the perfect space to cater to all your requirements.

We have one, or two-day venue rental packages available, with optional on-site accommodation in our 11 guest suites for up to 38 people. Not to mention a dedicated “getting ready room” providing the perfect space to prepare for your big day.

Take a 360° Virtual Tour and enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of Bella Cosa today!

Wouldn't have dreamed of anywhere else

When we first started looking at wedding venues I'd told my now-husband that I wasn't into the rustic vibe. When he first suggested touring Bella Cosa I was a little bit skeptical - but by the end of the tour I knew it was the place for us. It's just such a beautiful and elegant venue and there's so many different rooms and spots that make this place shine. Prospective brides, PLEASE do yourselves a favor and use as much of the venue space as you can, don't just limit yourself to the lawn or dining hall!

We've gotten so many compliments on how beautiful the spot was and I wouldn't dream of having done our wedding anywhere else.

The staff was so helpful and supportive and answered so many late-night questions from me with professionalism and promptness (and I had a lot of burning Sunday-at-2am questions -- sorry guys!). Right down to having a plan B in case of bad weather and a very clear decision making process that outlined when and how to make that call, though fortunately we evaded the rain by just a few hours.

The space is incredible and the staff is amazing. Thank you. I can't wait to get the rest of our photos back.

Absolutely Fantastic

Thank you for making our special day a wonderful experience. Marc, Shelby's and Rubin did an outstanding job at Bella Cosa today, the setting was breathtakingly beautiful and the care and attention taken to ensure our day ran smoothly was absolutely fantastic. Thank you beautiful Bella Cosa, you truly helped to bring our wedding day celebration to life. Every moment of the day was wonderful and will be treasured.

Hidden gem in Central Florida

Bella Cosa was a no brainer as soon as I saw it. Being in central Florida, most venues are barns, which are fine...just not my style. I have always been drawn to more European style weddings and Bella Cosa provides EXACTLY that. The staff was so helpful and I love that they actually sent regular check-in emails in the months leading up to the wedding. They answered all of my questions in a very timely manner. I even had a minor complaint in the planning process (I'll get to that later), but they handled it with grace and made me feel validated in my concern. We booked one of the packages that allowed us to stay the weekend, which is ABSOLUTE MUST, especially if you have lots of out of towners. Everyone was blown away by the venue and how gorgeous it was. Our guests the day of said the same thing. One of my friends said I absolutely outdid myself with the wedding (and they knew me as the wedding obsessed girl who has been planning her wedding since college), and Bella Cosa was a big part of that. The one downside to the venue is that it is in a pretty remote location, and doesn't really make traveling there easy if you aren't driving (which a few of my friends didn't). The complaint I referenced earlier was finding out that rideshares are not really a thing there, even though when I first toured the venue the staff member who gave the tour said it wasn't an issue. However, that may have been an error on her part only, because later on when I double checked, they did say that rideshares weren't reliable. That being said, it was a very small hiccup. Besides that, I have nothing but good things to say and Caitlyn, the venue coordinator the day of, was a huge help. Thank you so much to Bella Cosa for making our dream come true!
