In October of 2018, we helped Andrea and James bring their classic white wedding to life at Bella Collina. We weren’t the only ones who loved their modern design: their wedding was also featured on Carats & Cake! Thanks to KT Crabb Photography, we’re happy to share all the details of their beautiful day with you.
Our beautiful bride, Andrea, started her day with hair and makeup from Makeup by Gina. She and her bridesmaids wore fun matching robes, laid out in the morning with their matching sparkly heels. Andrea then stepped into her gorgeous strapless gown with a lacy train.
Andrea and James then met for their first look photoshoot. We loved seeing that moment of joy as they saw each other for the first time. We also loved capturing the gorgeousness of Andrea’s bouquet, arranged by Raining Roses. The wedding party then gathered for photos, the bridesmaids in sleek grey gowns and the groomsmen in coordinated black suits and grey neck ties.
Guests soon arrived, greeted by a fun guestbook: they signed large cut-outs of the first letters of Andrea and James’ names. The ceremony was set up on the lawn of Bella Collina, with gorgeous white floral arrangements. Soon enough, Andrea and James were exchanging vows, exchanging rings, and sharing in the unity candle ceremony. The happy couple shared a kiss, were pronounced husband and wife, and made their way back down the aisle, all smiles! As guests made their way to cocktail hour, Andrea and James shared a few last moments around the venue with their fabulous photographer.
Meanwhile, the reception room was prepared, everything clean, crisp, and white, with small accents of greenery and sparkling silver. The seating chart from Dogwood Blossom Stationery featured a hedge-like border, arrangements of florals and greenery hung from the ceiling, and each table held vases of beautiful lilies. Silver accents sparkled, from the chargers on the table to the detailing on the gorgeous wedding cake from Sprinkles Custom Cakes.
The reception opened with Andrea and James’ grand entrance into the space. They shared their first dance, then heard heartfelt toasts. Dinner was served, catered by Bella Collina. Andrea and James then shared father-daughter and mother-son dances, cut their cake, and let the party begin! DJ Jacob Towe handled the music and Party Shots Orlando handled the photo booth. It was a night full of dancing, music, and fun!
The night ended with a grand sparkler exit, and our beautiful bride sparkled just as much in her beautiful reception gown. Andrea and James shared one last kiss for the camera, then headed off on their next adventure together.
Congratulations to Andrea and James, and thank you for including us in your beautiful day! Thanks as always goes to our amazing vendors:
