When my fiancé and I first found Bella Villa via Instagram we were amazed with her lovely findings. However we were ONLY focused on renting his/hers chairs for our sweetheart table. We scheduled a time with Bella Villa, as we arrived to her studio she was finishing up her previous meeting. As we waiting a couple of minutes we browsed though her inventory. And we were AMAZED. Rosanna then introduced herself and right off the bat her vibe is the kind that makes you feel SO welcomed. She proceeded to ask us what we had in mind and what our wedding theme was. As we explained what Theme we were trying to achieve she immediately started bouncing ideas. AMAZING ideas! I mean after all she is the professional, and again based on her portfolio we already trusted her styling. At the end of the day instead of just renting two chairs we needed up with a sitting area by our dance floor, garden urns, cake table, accessories for the sitting area, welcome mirror and much more (pictures attached). I cannot imagine what our reception would have been like without Rosanna! I am incredibly grateful for her friendliness and professionalism. She is one of the few people you meet and right off the bat you feel comfortable with. (Photography by Dylan Fox)
***quick side note. I’m a landscape designer and planned on doing my own flower arrangements. Well Rosanna knocked some sense into my life and she even hooked me up with my florist. She was amazing! (Westvirjeni) this is what I mean when I say I honestly don’t know how our special day would’ve turned out without Rosannas expertise.Sent on 03/10/2020
Bella Villa's reply:Alma! Thank you so much for this wonderful expression of gratitude! I had no idea you were just there for chairs! Hahahahaha It was your garden & landscape vision and your comment about love angel statues that inspired me! I’m so grateful you trusted me and that you were pleased with the outcome. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and I LOVED all the Mariachi musicians playing while we were setting up! Hugs to you two newlyweds!!

Wonderful vendor - transformed our wedding!
My husband and I planned our intimate wedding during COVID-19 and we ended up having the rehearsal dinner and reception at my parent's home. Rosanna helped us transform the space and make it feel like a truly special event by providing beautiful furniture and accessories for both our outdoor space and interior dining area. She was incredibly flexible with our plans which seemed to change constantly due to people's level of comfort with social distancing and weather changes. Rosanna was on the ball in terms of communication and just had this wonderful positive energy during set-up on the day of that got everyone excited! Would absolutely recommend Bella Villa for any event -Sent on 03/26/2021

Absolutely recommend 1000x over
Rosanna and Bella Villa was key to our spectacular day. She was SO wonderful to work with: gave great advice, worked within our budget, super responsive, and just overall helped our vision take flight. The day with her pieces was more than I could have imagined. One example: planning a wedding in the time of coronavirus was pretty challenging (Did I mention that she was super flexible and caring re all the complexities of the pandemic?). We thought we weren’t allowed to display our cake out in the open at our venue. Rosanna had a brilliant idea and the perfect pieces. See the picture below—not only was the cake not displayed in the open but now it was a showpiece. Another example: our escort card display. We saw a picture on Pinterest of riddling racks being used to display seating arrangements and let Rosanna know the general idea. Her creativity took it to the next level. See the pic below. I cannot wait until the professional pictures come back so I can further rave over these and all the over details (beautiful welcome sign, signage hung over the bar etc.—and Leah Letters provided awesome calligraphy on those signs)!
I know I sound overly enthusiastic but I marveled at everything Rosanna and her team were able to accomplish. Plus, she’s just a really cool lady :-)
I told her I cannot wait for the excuse to rent pieces from her again and I meant it! Highly highly recommend. Her inventory is amazing, she is amazing, and my wedding is amazing. I’m sure you’ll have the same experience if you use Bella Villa.Sent on 09/28/2020
Bella Villa's reply:Jennifer, this is such a wonderful note and I can’t thank you enough! I recently received the wedding album and I love how it all turned out with the floral decor. You looked radiant and it was a really great experience getting to meet with both your parents as well for the planning and design portion. I so enjoyed the collaboration and was honored to be a part of your very special celebration. Thank you for the opportunity!
Team of Bella Villa
Rosanna's style has been greatly influenced by her childhood summers spent on a small island in Italy where her parents are from, as well as her most recent 17 years living a simple life on a rural Farmette in northern Virginia. When her parents weren't hosting fabulous parties in their sunny California backyard for their large Italian family, Rosanna would spend weekends with them attending all the wonderful cultural festivals offered in and around Los Angeles in the 80s and 90s. Rosanna thrived studying international business in college as her pride in her own heritage and traditions gave her great appreciation for others'. She loves helping her clients incorporate family and cultural traditions by utilizing vintage and antique pieces.
