Bella Collina has been on my list of must see venues for a few years now. Italy holds a special place in my heart as a destination wedding photographer. Bella Collina reminds me of the time I spent in Tuscany. There is a certain magic to this place! I hope you enjoy this beautiful Italian inspired wedding editorial! It was a dream to photograph and I am excited to share it with you!

Italian Inspired Wedding Venue in Orlando

Firstly, for couples looking to have a European or Italian inspired wedding in the United States, finding a venue that sets the tone for your day is important! This will help your day really exude the luxury and style of a European wedding. It will come across in your wedding photos and in the experience you share with your guests. Every aesthetic choice reflected the beauty of the venue which helped create a cohesive look. It was elegant with out being overbearing. Because of this, it reflected an Italian wedding day flawlessly. It was amazing!

Bella Collina is a wonderful venue choice. The venue is located on sprawling valley style golf course. It is a private space that will allow you to relax and enjoy the day to the fullest. The space is calming and relaxed. Mature trees surround the space which gives added privacy. The busy Orlando roads are out of sight. It’s truly your own oasis! And who doesn’t want that for their wedding day?

Italian Inspired Wedding Editorial at Bella Collina

Although the venue is full of beauty, one of my personal favorite elements is the reflecting pond. In this editorial, stepping stones and floral pillars were used to enhance the pond. The result was a romantic and whimsical space. Along the edge of the pool, cypress trees line the pool and bistro lighting pulled it all together. It was perfect for wedding portraits!

Inside, a gorgeous table was set up with decorative touches. For instance, the luxurious linen stood out! Pale pink glasses with napkins to match lined the table. Gold flatware added shine. And a statement floral piece drew your eye in. Tall candlesticks provided height and interest. It was the perfect inspirational set up.

This editorial included many lovely details. In particular, a light, bridal bow with pearl accents was the perfect choice. It complimented the wedding gown so thoughtfully. White bridal shoes with delicate bows tied the details together. Intricate vow books with hand painted greenery reflected the floral pillars by the pond. The same greenery and florals could be found near the trio of cakes. The cakes stood on acrylic risers. This created height and dimension! A champagne wall rounded out the decor which provided a welcoming touch.

Consequently all of these details came together to create a beautiful set up. Sometimes planning a wedding can be difficult. But being able to see inspiration come together in an editorial can be so helpful. Therefore I am a big believer in sharing editorials just like this one!
