Bella Collina | Shelby and Zach

Bella Collina Wedding

When Shelby and Zach met at a wedding, Zach knew that he wanted to dance with Shelby. But when he asked, she refused. Despite her refusal, he persisted and she eventually agreed, and now here they are at their own wedding! The couple enjoys fishing together, so it’s no surprise that Zach incorporated this into his proposal while they were out on the lake. He put the engagement onto the hook at the end of Shelby’s rod, got down on one knee on the boat, and of course she said yes!

What I really loved about their wedding at Bella Collina is that they veered away from the “typical” wedding color scheme. The bridesmaid gowns were a beautiful slate color paired along with golden yellow floral. Shelby’s stunning bouquet matched the floral throughout their beautiful Christian ceremony perfectly. The reception space was overflowing with lush greenery to give the indoor space a natural feel. Bella Collina is a venue that I love to shoot at for so many reasons. The weddings here are always jaw-dropping, and this was no exception!
