Romantic Southern wedding at Bella Collina

Lavish Southern wedding at Bella Collina

November 19, 2016  |  Lauren and Cody

Lauren and Cody have always had this special little place in my heart! From bringing me donuts when their engagement session got rained out, to bringing me flowers at their reschedule – they are the epitome of Southern charm and hospitality! So it should come as no great surprise that they had a lavish southern wedding at Bella Collina, one of the most beautiful venues in Central Florida!

Prepared with gifts for everyone (even me!), Lauren got ready in one of the stunning estate homes on Bella’s property with her bridesmaids and family. From her hand-painted champagne bottle to the custom signs surrounding the venue, every detail was expertly planned out. I honestly have no idea how she found the time – but thankfully the amazing team from Blush helped her make sure the entire day ran without a single hitch in their giddyup!

Let’s talk about some of their unique wedding details! They had a painter actually painting their ceremony IN REAL TIME! Custom signs decorated every inch of the venue, and an amazing seating chart was at the cocktail hour (you have to see it!). But my favorite detail, in true food-centric nature, was their pie-pop favors!

Lauren and Cody actually met in nursing school several years ago! Facebook ended up bringing them together, and rumor has it that Cody has never studied so much in his life (since Lauren was his new study-buddy!). I honestly can’t even imagine a more perfect couple who shares so many of the same goals, hopes and dreams, and I hope to stay a part of their happily-ever-after for many years to come!
