Where to even begin with Bella Sera.. to start off when you walk through the door the building is beautiful from the rod iron stair cases to the amount of detail that has been put into making this building the building of every brides dreams, there isn't a single detail missed. Secondly i would like to mention how accommodating and thoughtful the staff is, from the very first meeting to the very last ever person i met with listened to exactly what my vision for my wedding and made it come to life. John the owner of Bella Sera was extremely understanding and flexible about payment arrangements and budget and they honestly have a package for every persons budget. Austin who was my event manager was incredible and so so helpful, always taking time to respond to emails, texts and phone calls right away and answering any questions that came up right away. They came to me to make decisions and then did all the work to make it happen down to every last detail including allowing me to bring in additional decor that wasn't included in my package and setting it all up for me. it was completely stress free time leading up to the wedding and i never had to wonder what was going on because the communication was so awesome. When it was time for the big day again they did not disappoint. Austin was by my side the whole day and made everything go according to plan.. he was so helpful he even helped me switch into to tennis shoes halfway through the night and packed me a to go plate from our chocolate fountain because the night was so busy i didn't get a chance to grab anything. I can not say enough good things about him. He is great at what he does. Id also like to mention the photographer, Andrea, Once again she was awesome capturing beautiful photos from our engagement pictures all the way up until our big day and our sparkler send off which she was willing to shoot twice so we could get some photos that included our two kiddos. She was professional talented and we will be continuing to use her as our family photographer in the future. The food was amazing, the dj was amazing, the bartender was amazing and everyone catered to exactly what we needed and gave us a completely stress free wedding of our dreams. I cannot recommend them enough. Our only complaint is that its over and we don't get to do it again. If you're getting married in Colorado go with the Bella Sera event center. I promise you wont be disappointedSent on 11/16/2019

Working with this venue was the best choice we made. The staff is a joy to work with and they made everything as stress-free as possible.

A Al · Married on 03/10/2021
Honestly the best choice that anyone could ever make in a wedding venue. They listened to everything we needed, gave us suggestions for things we did not think about and helped us through every step of the way. Their easy all inclusive packages made the one stop shopping so simple and allowed my husband and I to focus on each other during our engagement period; rather than scrambling all over town to find different vendors to come together. Our wedding was supposed to happen in July 2020 originally and was postponed to October 2020. We were able to have it under stricter conditions but we were so disappointed that we had to make drastic changes. Our decisions and changes ultimately leaded to us having the best day of our lives. Bella Sera helped me to achieve the "Fairy Tale" wedding I always dreamed, and my husband would agree that everything exceeded any expectations he could ever have. We are so thankful to Bela Sera for helping us to have the best wedding day that we could have ever dreamed up.Sent on 12/30/2020
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Thank you both for all of your patience this past year as we continued to adjust to all of the regulations due to COVID. I am glad we were able to still create the best day of your lives and an amazing wedding. Throughout the entire process you all were so much fun to get know and work with from your tour, event production, tasting, design and into your entire wedding day. I hope nothing but the very best for you both!

I can’t say enough great things about the Bella sera. They were incredible throughout the whole wedding planning process and even worked with us to postpone due to covid. They accommodated every request and made our wedding day absolutely magical. I will always recommend the Bella Sera for those who want to have a perfect, stress-free, and unforgettable day!
Special thank you to Austin for answering my million emails throughout the planning process.

All-inclusive Venue package deal and Just Beautiful!
If you want a venue that is all-inclusive and as little stress as possible with the most helpful staff to accommodate your needs, then this is the venue for you! Not to mention, the venue is just beautiful and I feel in love with the venue upon first sight. I could definitely see us getting married there! The food was great, the staff set's up and break's down for you, our wedding coordinator Janelle was awesome and the staff there over all is very helpful and professional. Our guest couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful everything was and had a great time! We couldn't have asked for anything better and would definitely recommend.Sent on 05/17/2019

A Dream Come True Made Easy
Right off, everyone employed at the Bella Sera is extremely friendly, enthusiastic, and 100% committed to making your event exactly what you want. The Bella Sera was the first place we visited and after the consultation, we knew immediately that it was the place for us. Most people tell you to shop around but we were positive that this was the place for us.
Our consultation was about a year and a half out from when we wanted to get married. We met with the owner, John, and he was one of those people you automatically feel comfortable with. He was warm and welcoming and truly made an effort to get to know us in the short time we had with him. We went over a rather comprehensive list of all things wedding in order to determine desired elements, budget, and generally whether or not they would be able to accommodate us. John was upfront and honest with us that they always assess the uniqueness of each event to make sure the Bella Sera is a good fit for everyone and that they are not solely interested in getting booked like other venues. If they feel they can't accommodate an event, they will be honest about it which is something that stood out to me and in my opinion, speaks volumes about their character and integrity. Apart from our wonderful meeting with John, the venue is GORGEOUS. We were able to tour the space and the attention to detail and the way the decorations and lighting all come together is truly magical. We ended the meeting extremely excited and even though we probably would have booked them that same day, John encouraged us to go home and think about it before we made any decisions. Again, they truly have your best interest in mind and want your event to be perfect, even if it isn't with them. We never felt pressured.
When we were ready, I was able to call and book our date over the phone. Again, everyone was super friendly and flexible. Over the course of the year leading up to our date, we had a series of meetings meant to accomplish various things. We worked with Austin throughout the rest of our process and he was the best. At our first meeting, we confirmed any details we had covered at the consultation and talked more about budget, guest count, etc. Here, we learned a little more about the different packages and what was included in each of them. The next meeting was event production where we discussed dances, add-ons, activities, etc. Pretty much the logistics of the event and the elements we wanted. Here, we were able to decide what add-ons we wanted, we decided to do fun things like the photo booth, sparklers, and the s'mores and hot chocolate bar. The third meeting was the design meeting where we got to choose our lighting, decorations, everything! They have specific individuals who specialize in design and we had so many options to choose from. Anything you have in mind, they can make it happen. We did a winter wonderland theme and everything was beautiful! The possibilities with them are limitless! They put a table together for you so you can see what everything will look like. The fourth meeting was food tasting and that was a lot of fun. The food was tasty and we ended up going with the chicken alfredo and the pork tenderloin. After this, we had a final meeting just before the wedding where we went over all the details again and were able to meet with the DJ and select our music for the ceremony and the dance. During all of this, payments and communication were also super easy as they use Honey Book which was really great to use and allowed us to have all of our stuff in one place.
The rehearsal was the day before our event and it was quick and painless. The Bella Sera really has everything down to a science so the run-through was really easy. At this point, they'll have pretty much everything set up for your event so when we walked in to see all of our stuff up, it was breathtaking! We did a few practice runs and went on our way.
The day of the wedding was extremely stress free. Everyone always says that something always goes wrong at weddings but I can honestly say, everything went perfectly smooth. Because the Bella Sera has everything taken care of, I didn't have to worry about anything. The day of the wedding, they had a full staff, all with radios so they were all communicating and on the same page. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and they really allow you to focus on being the bride/groom rather than also being an event planner. They made sure everything was set up and even ensured I wouldn't see the groom and that he wouldn't see me. There was no "standing around" time, they really planned everything so that the guests weren't bored and always kept them moving so there was no awkward limbo.
They really take care of everything: planning, production, food, DJ, photography, bar, and fun extras. All we really had to do on our own was hair/makeup, dress/suits, flowers, invitations, and cake. We also booked a mariachi band on our own, which the happily accommodated and incorporated.
The DJ who was assigned to us was Enrique and he was amazing. He took the time to help us figure out and plan our music. He was also a great bilingual DJ and was able to do everything in both English and Spanish without a flaw. He was fun and kept the crowd moving. Our photographer was Andrea and she was also wonderful. The engagement session is part of the package and those turned out great. All of the wedding photos turned out amazing as well and she and her partner captured every moment.
There was so much that went into our wedding and I didn't feel any of the stress of it. Everything was so detailed and for everything that is included, it really is an amazing value. You can have a beautiful wedding for less than what most pay. Words cannot express the experience we had and how grateful we are for the Bella Sera family. I can truly say my wedding day was perfect and everything I wanted.

The most amazing experience you could ever have
We had our wedding this last Friday and it couldn't have been more perfect! Austin and Elisabeth helped throughout the whole Covid process to give us the wedding of our dreams. They were excellent in answering messages and emails quickly and kept us updated every step of the way. They had everything you could possibly need from the last minute seamstress to the cake baker to even the DJ and photographer. When we walked into our wedding day we didn't have to do or worry about anything since they took care of everything for us! If you want stress free planning and a great wedding no matter what the circumstances are, this is the place for you!Sent on 08/05/2020

A Wedding Miracle
When we first visited the Bella we were completely awestruck with how amazing and beautiful the venue looked. Even though it was only the 2nd venue we had visited, we knew right then it was the place we wanted to have our day.Sent on 07/14/2020
Their staff wasted no time turning a typically stressful wedding checklist into an easy, breathable timeline that turned our ideas into a reality. From the delicious food choices and in house cooking to the countless fun and quirky wedding additions we had an absolute blast planning our wedding.
We never had any concerns that the Bella wouldn't be able to meet our expectations, and we even realized they often exceeded them.
When Covid-19 struck earlier this year and threatened our happy ever after, the Bella fought everyday to ensure that our wedding still happened. They were very flexible and accommodating, and we were always at the forefront of their agenda.
We will gladly recommend the Bella to anyone who is looking to have an amazing, once in a lifetime wedding experience that is filled with joy, happiness, and on top of all that — a laid back and easy wedding planning adventure.
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Yelena you were such a rockstar fighting through all the challenges Covid-19 threw at you and us. What a blessing you both are to us. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to celebrate you and to make your celebration just as magical as it would have been without the virus. Thank you for your kind words and support; it truly means so much to us. We wish you all the joy and love marriage brings. The Bella Sera Team!

Bella Sera - Enchanted Forest
Where to start with the wonderful Bella Sera, my husband and I were married here on February 22, 2020. At our initial consult in February 2019, we met with John and Elisabeth, and we left in tears, knowing that this was where our fairy tale wedding would take place. John and Elisabeth truly are in it for the people. Their entire approach is to take your vision, and apply their experience, so that the final product is breath taking and exactly what you wanted. The decor that Bella Sera has available will allow every bride to customize a look entirely their own, the combinations are endless from votives and back drops, to aisle decor and table decor, up- lighting and grand entrances; your day is truly going to look like your dreams. Elisabeth will literally do anything she can to help you pin down a vision, even if that means making something new for you, and as someone who searched at ALL of the local venues, you will not find decor like you do here. Not to mention, they will set it up AND tear it down for you! What?! The Bella Sera is a one stop shop for your typical wedding vendors as well! With the packages available, you can find a caterer, a photographer, and a DJ that are all reputable and have worked together with Bella Sera for years, so they are well versed in the production that each wedding is. (And they are WONDERFUL!) At every turn, my husband and I were treated like family, and you will be to, because that it just how they treat everyone. At the end of our night, and for the weeks following, my husband and I are still getting reports of, "that was the best wedding we've ever been too", "that was the wedding of the year", "we've never seen a wedding like that", and your guests will say the same thing after choosing Bella Sera for your wedding day!Sent on 04/14/2020
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words and review. It was such a pleasure seeing your vision come to life with so many fun surprises. We always love seeing your guests in "awe" of your vision and celebrating your love with them all.

A Magical Place for our Dream Wedding
Bella Sera was special from the very moment we walked through the door. The vibe and immediate excitement from the staff is obvious from the start. We were given so many options and details to make our vision unique to us. Our original wedding day was unexpectedly hit with the Covid shut down and our guest list would be altered dramatically. Austin and Elizabeth stayed in contact with us with until our day could finally happen. Their flexibility and willingness to work with any of our ideas, address our concerns or just be there to answer any question big or small exceeded our expectations. The big day was magical!! Never a dull moment, the timing is so perfect. We were able to enjoy every second with our family with no worries about what needed to happen next and that was the best part for us!! The Photographer and DJ were perfect!! Thank you Elizabeth for making us feel so special and loved. Thank you Austin for making sure we were having the time of our life until the very last minute of our event!! We HIGHLY recommend booking Bella Sera for any large event!!Sent on 11/30/2020

We wish you both all the happiness and love in your marriage as you continue your journey together.
Hannah M. · Married on 01/08/2020
Honestly if I could put 6 stars I would! I got married at the Bella Sera on August 1st, 2020. At first it was very stressful trying to plan and execute a wedding during a pandemic. We had to significantly reduce our guest count in order to follow social distancing and keep people safe. For a long time my husband and I questioned if we should just reschedule the wedding to next year and were worried it wouldn't be the perfect wedding of our dreams that we initially pictured.Sent on 08/12/2020
But then we realized that life is rarely as perfect as we think it's going to be and sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and focus on positivity. If you always wait for the "perfect" time to do something then you could be waiting your whole life!
A pandemic wedding isn't normal, but it can so much more beautiful when you're able to celebrate love in a dark time and not let anything stop you from becoming one with the person you love most.
THANK YOU to the Bella Sera for making sacrifices along with us to make sure our day was still special and fun. They went the complete extra mile to ensure me, my husband, and our guests were happy from the first day of the planning process to the very last minute of our wedding day.
If you value happiness, love, union, and fun then please go check out the Bella Sera for your wedding! My husband and I looked at a few other venues before choosing the Bella Sera and though many of them were flashy, they lacked the substance that the Bella Sera provides.
To us, a wedding is about the union and celebration of our love, and even though we had to make some sacrifices, we had a BLAST on our wedding day. The only thing I would have changed would have been to make the day go by slower!
Again, thank you so very much to John, Elisabeth, Austin, and your whole staff for working so hard to make our wedding process unique and enjoyable. You guys are amazing!!!!
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Thank you so much Hannah and Jonah! It was such a pleasure to be part of your special day with all of your special guests. You are so sweet to see the good in all the "bad" and realize a wedding is a time of love and healing and there couldn't be a better time then the present to celebrate. We wish you and Jonah the absolute best with your life moving forward.

Our wedding could not have gone better thanks to the team of Bella Sera! From the moment you meet these amazing people you realize that they want the same thing you do - A PERFECT WEDDING. From the moment we met John Montoya we knew this was our place! His skilled team - including his wife Elizabeth - makes sure you have everything you need.

I am so thankful to have found The Bella Sera. If the idea of coordinating a dj, caterer, photographer, and decor, all on the same day at the same time while trying to enjoy your own celebration gives you anxiety - have no fear. Bella Sera is here.
They organized EVERYTHING I didn't want to deal with. We went with the Italiano package which included it all. They even created a champagne glass pyramid for the toast at our request and provided a caricaturist to entertain the guests during pictures. Our guests were absolutely astonished with the opulence our venue created.
But above all and MOST important to us both, was our personal coordinator Austin. That man deserves an award. Not only did he keep the flower girls entertained with bubbles before the ceremony, not only did he find space for our tardy guests, not only did he direct the quartet to their places, and make time for a first touch, and get the wedding party our smoking cocktails, and arrange sparklers for farewell, and arrange our flower delivery, and our cake delivery, and last minute finishing touches, AND make sure we were fed - but he did so with the most calming voice and delicate demeanor.
Were we running behind schedule? I don't know! Because it didn't matter. Because Austin was taking care of it. Because even if we were, I never worried. Why? Because Austin was there to walk us through it. He asked us questions, took and gave direction without a moments hesitation - all with poise and decorum. If that man ever does experience stress or annoyance like the rest of us, you'd never ever know it. My husband and I owe all our peace of mind to Austin. Our wedding would not and could not have been half as magical without him.
Thank you Bella Sera for giving me memories to last a lifetime. I'll never forget them.Sent on 09/17/2019
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Brittany and Robert we are so happy to hear your wonderful words. Your wedding was such a fun unique theme of roaring 20s. Even your guests got into the mood wearing some fun outfits but our favorites were all of your flower girls in matching dresses. :) Thank you for the inspiration to create the champagne pyramid. It was a marvelous moment watching all of your guests reaction as you poured the champagne. Couples like the two of you make our jobs fun and continue to push us to find new ways to wow the guests. We look forward to hearing more on how your magical story continues. :)
