What was once a old movie theater in Brighton, Colorado, The Bella Sera Event Center was opened over a decade ago in 2004.

With a stunning double staircase leading to a marble foyer, vaulted ceilings, a personal balcony for the newlyweds, a reception space that can be decorated exactly how you want it, it’s no surprise the Bella Sera is one of the top wedding venues in Colorado.
