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

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.

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

"Best time ever" is all we heard !
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. Austin, wow what can I say but you are the BEST ! You made sure everything was exactly how we had planned for and our guest were BLOWN AWAY by all the fun they had. We are still hearing that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever been too. It ran smoothly and Austin kept things moving perfectly ! Food was outstanding and decor was stunning. Music was just what we asked for and we danced till we almost dropped !!Sent on 09/29/2019
THANK YOU BELLA SERA for making our dream wedding come true !

Shilene Norris · Married on 07/14/2019
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. :)

Jill Patrick · Married on 06/22/2019
Absolute perfection! The Bella Sera is hands down the best venue for a wedding! We just had our wedding there and our guests are still talking about how it was the best wedding they've ever attended!
The staff is professional, kind, fun, and truly care about making the day special. The venue is gorgeous.
The Bella includes so many things in their packages that takes the stress out of looking for vendors and DIY projects. It includes uplighting, centerpieces, DJ, and photography that go above and beyond expectation. The room itself was magical. There are "wow factors" offered that no other venue could compete with. Our coordinator always kept us in the loop on the bar tab and guided us through all the events during the evening. All we had to do was show up and have a good time.
If you are looking for a venue that is classy yet fun, the Bella is for you! If I had to do it all over, I would select the Bella again hands down! Great venue, great people, perfect day!Sent on 07/30/2019

It was perfect
I literally can not say enough about this venue. From the owners to ever single member of their staff, they are amazing and made my wedding day EXACTLY what I always dreamed off. The lighting, the music, the food, the decor, the set up and break down, security, photo booth ALL OF IT! Janell was my event coordinator and she went above and beyond on my wedding day. From bringing me a drink before I got ready because I was so nervous, to hugging me goodbye at the end of the night. They truly made me feel unbelievably special and like family. If I could do it again, I would always and forever get married at Bella Sera! Can't thank them enough!Sent on 06/16/2019
Bella Sera Event Center's reply:Thank you so much Brittany for the sweet review. We feel like all of our couples are family and we loved working with you and Jarrad.

If you are looking for a wedding venue, Bella Sera is my number on recommendation. Hands down the greatest wedding experience! This venue has the most incredible staff that went above and beyond my expectations. Elisabeth Montoya and her husband John are some of the sweetest, most caring, and professional people I have ever met! I felt so comfortable and so confident that everything I had dreamed of from a little girl would be executed perfectly on my special day. From the first meeting to the last person dancing on the dance floor on our wedding day, was an outstanding experience. Bella Sera really does it all! They create a magical experience and I would NEVER go anywhere else. I have two younger sisters and they all said that they will be getting married there as well (:Sent on 08/31/2013

Beautiful Venue and Service
Jon, Austin, Elisabeth, and their team were wonderful. They made our experience the greatest ever and helped eliminate a lot of the stress that comes with planning a wedding and working with vendors. We had many last minute changes up to our big day and they worked with us through them all. Our guests had a wonderful time and loved the experience they got at our wedding. The s'mores bar was amazing and everyone loved the hanging cake, as well as the fog screen and the different projections. The venue provided us with a wonderful photographer, Andrea, and a second photographer who were both very helpful and easy to work with. The wait staff provided by the venue was also very wonderful in making sure we were done with courses and ready for the next before taking our plates. The Bella Sera team also did the most wonderful job decorating our venue to our liking. And providing us with a wonderful DJ who played music on request but also kept in mind our preferences as to not play music we didnt not want played. I would book the Bella Sera for any future events as they were amazing!Sent on 03/11/2019

They have a gorgeous venue and an amazing staff!
I love their package deals because it takes a lot of the stress away which is extremely important on your big day. We chose the Bellissimo package with additional features (worth it!). They have everything you need such as catering, dj, photographers, lots of centerpieces to choose from, a wedding coordinator and much more! It's so convenient when the ceremony and reception are in one place.
I can't stress enough how fantastic the Bella Sera team is! They are very personable in every way. They made my wedding day wonderful, stress-free, and fun for everyone involved! We have received non-stop praise from our guests because of how organized everything is, how delicious the food was, and how much fun they had.
If you are planning a wedding and haven't checked out Bella Sera, you are missing out. We highly recommend it. :)
