Bella Collina Wedding in October
October 3, 2014 | Alayna and Jeff
Bella Collina always has a special place in my heart for weddings. Every time I’m there it’s a little different, but it’s the couple’s personalities that add so much love and life to the Tuscan-inspired venue. Alayna and Jeff celebrated their wedding in October surrounded by the most beautiful weather and scenery – even with a quick pass-through of some rain just to cool things down a bit. You have to check out the fluffy clouds at their lawn ceremony, too!
Alayna kept things really classic with ivory flowers, gold details and dusty rose bridesmaids gowns. They did pink uplighting for the dance-floor inside the main clubhouse.
I’m finding more and more people meet in “unconventional” ways – so much so, that it’s actually becoming more conventional to meet like this! Alayna was moving to Florida for a job when she signed up for an online dating site just to see if there was anyone interesting in her “new” hometown. She met Jeff, and they hung out for the first time at Disney together! Fast forward a bit, Jeff proposed on New Year’s by tying a ring to their puppy and getting down on one knee to ask her to be his wife! Alayna said it was super sweet and so “them”.
I loved everything about their laid-back happiness and excited, smiley nervousness! Thanks so very much for including us in your day!!
