meet jennifer

Hello Gorgeous!

My name is Jennifer Lopez (Yes you are hearing that right I married into a famous name and I Love it!) I am the owner and founder of Bella Sposa Events. About six years ago I took on an internship with a Design Firm/Wedding Designer and my love affair with weddings began!  Every client was different, and I loved that. After graduation and a few years of working exclusively in interior design, I felt that something was missing and that’s how Bella Sposa (Beautiful Bride in Italian) was born!

I’m so proud of the team I’ve built and grateful for the community I get to collaborate with!  

I also have to give a shout-out to my amazing husband Gabe, our sweet son, Sammy,  daughter, Sophia, and of course, our fur baby, Gimli. Family is everything and the support they have given me has been out of this world! Lost of love to all you brides and cheers to the best wedding day ever!

XOXO,
Jennifer

If you're looking for a team of women to help make your wedding day absolutely amazing you have come to the right place.

MEET the team

Kayla - Senior Planner

Hi Friends! My name is Kayla and I’m a Senior Lead Wedding Planner with Bella Sposa Events, certified in planning and design with The Bridal Society. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Event Management from the Rosen College of Hospitality. Go Knights!

I have had the pleasure of working with Bella Sposa Events for the past four years and I’ve been in the wedding and events industry for several years prior. These experiences have given me insight and connections in the wedding industry, including relationships with various venues, catering companies, and others.

My favorite part of being a wedding planner is seeing my couples’ personalities and visions come to life on their wedding day. My ultimate goal is that your wedding day becomes everything you ever dreamed it would be.

As a Florida local, my favorite thing to do is head to the beach and be outside. But, I’m always down for a road trip and traveling to new places. I love finding new local restaurants, exploring different beach towns, longboarding & kayaking, and being in the sunshine. And I’m a sucker for a good pop punk concert!

I can’t wait to become besties and hear all about your special day! Cheers!

Clara - Senior Planner

Hi there! My name is Clara and I am a Senior Lead planner with Bella Sposa Events, certified with the Bridal Society in planning & design. I have been working in the events industry for over 7 years, gaining experience in catering, security, venue coordination, and of course, planning!

I am passionate about what I do and I love this industry for too many reasons to count. I have been with Bella Sposa for over 4 years now and have loved almost every moment. When I first started this position, I wanted the experience, but I stayed because of how much I love supporting my couples. It is important to me to make my couples feel like someone values their wedding as much as they do. My positive mindset, goofy personality, and calm demeanor are what makes my planning experience one to remember!

Aside from work, I am an Orlando native, but I have a passion for traveling and exploring new places. I love dogs, chai tea lattes, the beach, and I am always up for a concert or festival.

Whether you want to talk about your wedding or just need a moment to destress during your planning process and grab a drink, I’m here for you! Happy Wedding Planning!

Natalie - Senior Planner

My name is Natalie and I am a lead planner with Bella Sposa Events certified with the Bridal Society in Planning and Design! I am SO excited you’re here! Bella Sposa Events has been my second family for almost 3 years!

A little about me: I’m your typical pup mom with a HUGE passion for weddings and design. I graduated from The Rosen College of Hospitality with a degree in Event Management; which has allowed me to do what I love to do: create amazing events! My enthusiasm, client-first attitude, and eye for aesthetics ensures that every wedding I am apart of is an iconic experience.

I use any excuse to host a party or a get together, I have a passion for fashion, a love for travel, Starbucks and Chick-Fil-A & can be caught jammin’ out to 80’s music on my way to every wedding.

Aislinn- Lead Planner

My passion for wedding and event planning came about unexpectedly. While pursuing my degree in a very different field, I decided to take an elective course called “Introduction to Special Events”; I fell in love and never looked back! I changed my major and have been learning the ins and outs of this incredible industry ever since. From weddings on board cruise ships and on various Caribbean islands to destination weddings in Miami and even intimate weddings in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, I can truly say this is my life’s passion. My favorite part of any wedding is when the couple sees one another for the very first time and watching them share their love with each other and their loved ones throughout their day.

Born and raised in South Florida and growing up in a family completely enchanted by all things Disney, it was only a matter of time before I settled in Orlando. I graduated from Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality with a degree in Hospitality Management and a minor in Event and Meeting Management. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to plan weddings and events for the past 9+ years in Miami, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Austin, and now Orlando and can’t wait to incorporate all my experience into your event!

When not planning the perfect event, you can find me either at a theme park, trying new foods, volunteering at animal shelters, finding new books to read, or cuddled up on the couch watching TV with a glass of wine, my fiance, and my Boxer-mix Goober. And I wasn’t kidding when I told you I was really into Disney so I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Walt Disney himself: “If you can visualize it, if you can dream it, there’s some way to do it.” I apply that way of thinking to everything I do and I can’t wait to meet you and help you plan your perfect day!

Outside of creating your dream wedding ,you can find me most likely at Disney with my family or anywhere in the great outdoors.
