As you can imagine, we love weddings. And if there’s one thing we love more than a wedding, it’s a whole weekend dedicated to celebrating a wedding! Which is exactly what Devanie and William did this past summer. We’re thrilled to share all the details with you from their dreamy, Florida summer wedding at Bella Collina.
You already know the drill — we love to start with the getting-ready photos of the couple! You can see the excitement build-up and we love seeing the special moments the parties get to share before the celebrations officially begin.
Devanie looked like a real-life princess in her dress and her bridal party looked elegant in their classic black dresses. Thank you to LizUpdos LLC, Makeup by Judith C, Loftis Production for the stunning hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling!
After getting ready, it was time for the ceremony, hosted at the Grand Lawn. Before getting into the actual events of the ceremony, let’s take a look at the gorgeous details Bumby Photography captured. We especially love that Devanie and William provided fans for their guests to use if the Florida summer heat was too much!
A huge thank you for the gorgeous setup by the talented In Bloom Florist, EventWorks, Posy Exchange, Wizard Connection, and Kaleidoscope Event Lighting!
Then, came the proceeding. Devanie and William chose to have a first look down the aisle, and we loved this decision for them. Their adoration for each other was heartwarming and unmistakable.
Next up, family and bridal party photos! We are gushing over Devanie and William with their kids!
And before we jump into the reception, we have to share the lovely photos Bumby Photography took of the couple around Bella Collina’s stunning venue.
Once photos and cocktail hour were over, it was time for the reception! Everyone moved to Bella Collina’s elegant Ballroom. Rachel, their planner, Jess, their coordinator, as well as Devanie and William agreed it was best to have their reception inside to escape the summer humidity. (It’s always important to think about the weather and to have a backup plan in case the weather isn’t ideal!)
Last up: the party part of the wedding! We started with the first dance (how cute is it that they had a first dance with their kids, too?), the cake-cutting ceremony, an outfit change, and of course, lots of dancing!
We want to thank Devanie and William for trusting us to plan your wedding! We had so much fun working with you and we wish you so many years of love and happiness!
