We’re thrilled to share Stephanie and Zachary’s elegant summer wedding, where they celebrated at one of our favorite venues in Florida, Bella Collina!
When it came to selecting their venue, Stephanie and Zachary knew they wanted to be able to celebrate both indoor and outdoor options since they were getting married in the summer. Bella Collina has the best of both worlds with their stunning outdoor area with the Grand Lawn and Reflection Pool, and breathtaking indoor areas with the Ballroom.
It also looked like Italy, where Stephanie studied abroad, so they both knew this was the perfect option for them!
As always, we have to start with the getting-ready photos! We love seeing a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of the magic all coming together.
Then, it was time for the first look! We love that Stephanie not only did a first look with her soon-to-be-husband but also with her bridesmaids!
After some beautiful photos captured by the talented Hunter Ryan Photography, it was time for the ceremony! We want to extend a huge thank you to EventWorks, Lettering by Lee Ann, and Victoria Blooms for creating an absolutely stunning ceremony for the couple.
While everyone was celebrating the ceremony at cocktail hour, our amazing vendors were working to put the finishing touches on the reception. The result was timeless, elegant, and gorgeous!
Seeing that the most important goal of their wedding was to make sure their guests were having a great time, the reception was a key part of making that happen. We say, judging by the looks on everyone’s faces, Stephanie and Zachary succeeded in making this happen!
Of course, we couldn’t have done it without Cnergy Music — they provided the upbeat music and great vibes all night long!
Of course, we had to end with an epic send-off! Stephanie and Zachary opted for a spectacular sparkler send-off, which never fails to be super exciting and fun!
When we asked Stephanie and Zachary if they had any advice for couples planning their wedding, they said to talk to as many vendors as you can before selecting your final choices. This way, you’re picking the best people to work with that match your personality and can accomplish your vision.
Thank you, Stephanie and Zachary, for providing that advice to soon-to-be-married couples! And thank you for entrusting Blush planner, Deirdre, to be a part of your big day. We wish you so many more years of happiness, love, and laughter!
