Merlot Bella Collina Wedding

Every single wedding is special, and we can never get enough of them! Katelynn and Kyle’s Bella Collina wedding was just gorgeous, with beautiful pops of crimson and merlot throughout the ceremony and decor.

Blush by Brandee Gaar did a fabulous job – as always – keeping everything running smoothly to give Katelynn and Kyle the wedding of their dreams, while Collective by Concept was there every step of the way to capture it all for a lifetime.

Katelynn made the most stunning bride; everyone turned to look at her as she walked down the aisle, transfixed by her smile and beautiful gown. Her cascading bouquet had been lovingly crafted in a rich color palette of white, champagne, blush, and merlot wine.  

The bouquet popped against the ivory of Katelynn’s gown, full of lush hydrangea blooms, champagne and blush garden roses, merlot red ranunculus, deep burgundy dahlia, and hanging red amaranthus floral. To finish out the bouquet, we added some seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, Italian ruscus, and Italian pitt foliage.

For Katelynn’s bridesmaids, we created elegant, hand-tied bouquets of white hydrangea with blush garden roses, soft pink ranunculus, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. For a bit of softness, we added in some pink wax flowers.

Of course, our groom had to match his bride! For Kyle, we created a boutonniere with merlot-red ranunculus blooms, dusty miller, and seeded eucalyptus. It was striking against his charcoal gray suit, making him so dashing!

Everyone admired the couple throughout the ceremony, cheering as Katelynn and Kyle were pronounced husband and wife. Soon after, it was time to kick off the party! Everything was perfectly in place for the indoor reception, and everyone was ready to get on the dance floor!

Katelynn and Kyle wanted their centerpieces to be stunning, but a little different, and we loved getting creative with the idea! We crafted their centerpieces with our rustic wrought iron chandeliers, using a mix of the same flowers used in Katelynn’s and the bridesmaids’ bouquets plus a bit of foliage for a hint of a rustic touch.

After hours of dancing the time away and making memories, the day came to a close, and soon, it was time to say goodbye to our couple. Congratulations again, Katelynn and Kyle!

Classic White with Pops of Color: Meghan and Scott’s Bella Collina Wedding

Each and every couple is wonderful, but Meghan and Scott’s love is so pure and strong, it withstood a hurricane! Hurricane Matthew had us all wondering if this Bella Collina wedding would take place as scheduled, but the storm passed on, leaving beautiful weather behind!

Anna Christine Events planned the whole event with the utmost professionalism and care, resulting in an event that couldn’t have been more stunning. SNI Photography captured every unique and memorable moment, from the gorgeous sky to the shy smile on Meghan’s face as she walked down the aisle.

It was a classic white wedding, but we loved how we were able to incorporate some pops of color into the floral, like Meghan’s bouquet. Crafted with white hydrangea and open white and champagne garden roses, with merlot-wine ranunculus floral tucked in, along with wine and café au lait dahlia blooms throughout. We finished off the bouquet with some seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller, resulting in a variety of blooms that looked truly striking against our bride’s beautiful white gown.

Of course, we didn’t forget about our handsome groom! Scott opted for a classic look with a crisp black tuxedo, which we complemented with a boutonniere of ranunculus and dusty miller.

After a sweet, emotional ceremony, it was time to celebrate! This is a special couple, so, of course, their reception had to be just as special! The pure ivory décor at the reception was lovely, and it paired beautifully with the floral we created. Lush floral arrangements stood high on the tables, created with hydrangea, open roses in blush and champagne tones, more wine and café au lait dahlia, and burgundy snapdragons for an accent. We finished off the look with white dendrobium orchids that spilled over, with Italian Ruscus foliage and blooming seeded eucalyptus.

The event began with a sweet, beautiful ceremony, just perfect for the couple, with a chain of greenery and a few vintage lanterns leading the way to the hall. Jennifer and Richard both glowed with happiness as they said their I Do’s, Jennifer resplendent in a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline, while Richard cut an impressive figure his gray suit.

For Richard’s boutonniere, we kept it simple but impactful with white ranunculus, accented with dusty miller foliage. It was especially created to complement Jennifer’s bridal bouquet, which was lovingly crafted with café au lait dahlia blooms, white ranunculus, peach-toned garden roses and a finish of dusty miller foliage.

The reception was effortlessly glamorous, and we loved every little detail! The white-and-gold cake artfully designed by Party Flavors Custom Cakes featured a gold sparkle tier, topped with an elegant cake topper with “Mr & Mrs Escobar” in swirling gold script. Floral arrangements of more peach garden roses, surrounded by tiny candles, added a touch of warmth and easy beauty.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests took the party indoors for an awesome reception. Floral centerpieces adorned the tables, greenery lusciously draped across the sweetheart table, but the star of the show – other than the bride and groom, of course – was the cake. Created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes, the majestic five-tier confection stood tall, beautifully offset by the floral arrangements on each side. Classic and delicious!

Rustic weddings are a joy to behold. The warmth and comfort they evoke is perfect for the start of a couple’s new life together. Domenic and Lisette’s wedding was all that and more. The breathtaking event was brilliantly planned by Blush by Brandee Gaar, while Amalie Orrange Photography expertly captured every beautiful moment.

The outdoor ceremony at Bella Collina was a beautiful sight. The angelic flower crowns donned by the flower girls created a flair of innocence and beauty, while Lisette’s bridal bouquet, featuring lush pink garden roses and white hydrangea, was the perfect complement to her stunning white gown.

After the ceremony, the couple headed indoors for the reception. A lot of thought went into every detail, to really evoke that rustic feel, from the greenery draping the sweetheart table for the couple, to the delicious “naked” cake simply topped with full, lush pink and white blooms.

The outdoor ceremony was a modern twist on a traditional setting. What an innovative idea to have long, dark wooden pews from RW Events, normally seen in a church, for the open air service. The bride walked down an aisle lined with grounded, luscious white floral arrangements. We designed an all white bridal bouquet of roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, with touches of green for a more organic vibe. To add a vibrant pop of color, the bridesmaids donned yellow bouquets of a similar arrangement, which complemented their grey toned gowns beautifully.

Rustic farm tables from A Chair Affair, Inc. framed the room in a half-moon shape, with a show-stopping five tier cake from The Sugar Suite taking center stage. We were happy to the create ivory slated, lush centerpieces featured on each table, as well as the mix of towering candelabras, wrapped in greenery to create dimension and visual interest to the space.

Bella Collina: Cindy and Julio

Cindy and Julio had a beautiful and bold wedding at the picturesque Bella Collina. Castaldo Studio wonderfully captured the intimate details of the stunning affair that was flawlessly coordinated by the team of Blush by Brandee Gaar.Red and Gold Wedding Burgundy Lily Boutonniere

The bride and groom decided on a striking color scheme of deep reds and metallic gold. We were happy to create unique floral designs to complement their wedding vision. For the outdoor ceremony, we detailed the aisle with a pattern of romantic, red rose petals. Once the bride reached her groom at the altar, they stood beneath a floral arbor woven with curly willow branches, crimson roses, purple stock flowers, and dangling amaranthus.

The burgundy Calla Lilly’s and roses showcased in the bride’s bold bouquet was continued throughout the reception décor. A stunning five-tier cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes was a true showstopper. The exquisite dessert was covered in a cream frosting, layered with intricate fondant trimming, dusted in gold leaf.
