Sarah and Baker’s wedding took place on a gorgeous Florida fall day at the renowned Bella Collina venue. We honestly couldn’t have imagined the couple at any other venue for their elegant yet epic and fun wedding!
They chose this venue because they said they’ve never toured another venue quite like it. They loved how it has a Tuscan castle vibe that perfectly matched their fairytale theme.
Before the actual ceremony began, Sarah and her bridesmaids got ready in the Presidential Suite, which served as the perfect backdrop for these glam shots Melissa of Melissa Ann Photography captured! Sarah looks like a star as Dorka Jones Make-Up and LizUpdos LLC got her ready for her wedding day.
We’re always fans of the getting-ready photos, so your partner can take a glimpse into what that process was like before the celebrations actually start.
Naturally, we used the iconic Grand Lawn for the ceremony — a perfect backdrop for the romantic fairytale ambiance the couple imagined for their big day. Sarah and Baker look like naturals in front of the camera, which was probably because this wasn’t their first rodeo with Melissa! She was there from their dating days to their proposal and engagement to their wedding!
We also just need to pause for a moment to give so much appreciation to In Bloom Florists for balancing elegance with glam and fun, and bringing Sarah and Baker’s floral dreams to fruition!
Paige from Two Peas Paper Co. created so many thoughtful pieces of art for the couple, including their Save The Dates, their wedding suite, the menus, programs, and place cards.
After cocktail hour and some photos by the Reflection Pool, it was time for an outfit change! Sarah opted for a more fluid, sparkly dress to dance in.
Baker didn’t exactly have an outfit change, but he did add a little detail to his suit! Can you spot it?
Since their pup couldn’t travel to Orlando for their wedding day, they still wanted to make sure they included her in some way. The couple ended up having her picture on coasters and pillows for their outdoor furniture at their welcome party! We love this adorable personal touch.
Speaking of dancing, Letz Dance On It set up a dance floor and it was a hit! Serena worked closely with them, as well as with Get Lit Productions (lighting) and Swag Decor (decor) to create a dance floor that was irresistible!
Sarah and Baker said their favorite part about their wedding was seeing their guests have a blast. They wanted their wedding weekend to be an event their guests would talk about for years to come, and we certainly think that goal was achieved!
It was important to Sarah and Baker that their personalities shined in all of the details. One of those details? The dessert table! Both of them love dessert, so Serena helped them coordinate with Gideon’s Bakehouse in Orlando to create the perfect dessert table, which included their favorite: chocolate chip cookies!
Our team was incredibly honored to be part of Sarah and Baker’s romantic fairytale wedding day at Bella Collina. We wish them years and years of happiness and love!
