One of our favorite December weddings took place midway through 2017, at Bella Collina. Morgan and Nicholas planned their wedding 10 days before Christmas, and had a subtle holiday theme through the decor, color scheme, and floral design. Thanks to KV Photography, we are able to share their beautiful photos with you!
Morgan and Nicholas’ big day began at the Bella Collina Spa, with hair and makeup for the ladies. Morgan wore a beautiful ball gown from Collection Bridal, with a sweetheart neckline and layer upon layer of tulle. Meanwhile, Nicholas got ready in red slip-on shoes, a Hugo Boss suit, and a beautiful red and white boutonniere from Clermont Florist.
Morgan and Nicholas then met for their first look photoshoot, and were clearly ecstatic to see one another. They wandered the grounds of the venue with their photographer, exploring lots of fun spots to feature in their photos. They then met with their bridesmaids and groomsmen for some photos of the wedding party. Soon enough, it was time to hide, as the guests were beginning to arrive!
The ceremony was held on the lawn of Bella Collina, and was orchestrated by a guitarist. Morgan and Nicholas chose to have an unplugged ceremony, meaning they requested that guests put away their phones and cameras until the end. The ceremony was short and sweet, with Morgan led in by the ring bearers who held a sign that said “Here comes the bride”. Morgan and Nicholas exchanged their vows and made their exit through a shower of rose petals, thrown by their guests.
While the cocktail hour took place on the patio, the reception was set up inside the clubhouse. Each table had a lovely white linen with a floral centerpiece of red and white flowers. Overall, the decor of the room was simple and subtle, with gold accents and glowing votive candles. The cake was a multi-tiered creation from Party Flavors Custom Cakes.
The reception began with Morgan and Nicholas’ entrance into the hall, followed by their sweet first dance. Following some lovely toasts from loved ones, dinner was served, catered by Bella Collina. From then on the night flew by, through cutting the cake, a Father-Daughter dance, and the garter/bouquet tosses. At last the guests made their way to the patio for the grand exit, taking a favor from underneath the mini Christmas tree on their way out. Morgan and Nicholas then had a sparkler grand exit, sharing one last kiss for the camera on their way out.
