Rhiannon & Tyler, March 21st, Club Lake Plantation, Apopka, FL

March 21st, 2020…in the midst of COVID-19 and venues having to shut down,  we had our last wedding. It was absolutely spectacular and as we reminisce we are reminded of the magic and love that filled the room. 

Rhiannon & Tyler did not let all that was going on stop them from sharing their vows and becoming one. And we are so glad they decided to move forward with this special day. 

The beautiful couple met through a dating app, but they never ended up meeting in person. A mutual friend noticed the two talking through the app and invited them both to a concert. They met, and the rest is history. 

Tyler planned a beautiful surprise proposal with friends and family in attendance. Rhiannon said her easiest yes ever, and the couple quickly got to wedding planning. Within weeks, Club Lake Plantation was decided as their wedding venue. 

The couple felt a sense of comfort and ease as they toured Club Lake Plantation, and knew they had to say “I Do” at this venue. 

Leading up to the day, Rhiannon and Tyler realized they could be having one of the last weddings in the world for the time being. Once they saw the big picture, they decided to live in the moment and take full advantage of their original plans. March 21st quickly approached and it was finally time for the couple’s very special day. 

Rhiannon spent the morning in Club Lake’s bridal suite getting ready with her bridesmaids. Makeover Station worked on perfecting all of the beautiful maids hair and makeup. It was a beautiful morning full of laughter & so much love. 

After everyone was ready, and family and friends were seated under the gorgeous oak trees, it was time for Rhiannon to be escorted down the aisle by her father. As everyone stood and the music started playing, Tyler was brought to tears as he watched his beautiful bride walk down the aisle. 

The couple shared their vows with one another, and felt relief as they looked into each other’s eyes. The moment they had been anticipating was finally here, and they did not have to worry about a thing. 

The new Mr. & Mrs. shared their first kiss as husband and wife, and welcomed their guests with a cocktail hour full of drinks and yummy appetizers. 

After, guests were escorted to the reception room where the tables were elegantly decorated with geometric vases and light pink roses. It was simple yet stunning. The dessert table had a display full of an assortment of delicious choices thanks to Cakes by Virgo

Guests and the couple shared an evening filled with delicious food served by Foodie Catering, amazing lively music by Our DJ Rocks, and a fun energy that took everyone away from what was going on in the world. It truly was a perfect day. 

Bella Sposa Events was honored to be apart of Rhiannon & Tyler’s wedding day. We are so happy that you both were able to live in the moment and enjoy this day to its fullest. Thank you for allowing us to be apart of it all. 

We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and so much love.

Kaci & Adrian, January 26th, 2019, St. Joseph’s Church & The Banyan Estate

We could not have asked for a more perfect day on January 26th, 2019. It was Kaci & Adrian’s wedding day, and it was absolutely perfect. 

The couple met in 2011, but didn’t start dating until years later when they rekindled on a dating app. Flashforward, and Adrian was down on one knee asking Kaci to be his future wife. 

Adrian planned the most romantic proposal. He took Kaci to an art studio owned by a friend. He has the lights dimmed, and string renditions of Coldplay songs playing throughout the studio. He brought her to an art piece hanging on the wall (that he created). It was made up of pictures of the couple, lyrics to their favorite songs, and on the side it read “Will You Marry Me?” When Kaci realized this, she turned around and Adrian was on one knee. 

The couple was so excited and started planning their wedding immediately, and that is when they contacted us to help with their special day. The Bella Sposa team wanted to ensure Kaci & Adrian could enjoy their day and feel relaxed.

They decided to have their ceremony in a traditional church setting which made the decision easy: St. Joseph Church. Following this decision they then picked out The Banyan Estate for their cocktail hour & reception. 

The morning of January 26th, Kaci got ready alongside her bridesmaids and mom. The ladies at Bella Chic Beauty & Mirth Salon perfected their hair and makeup and helped to make the girls look gorgeous.  

After getting ready, the couple delivered letters to each other to read. It was a beautiful & emotional moment captured by Nick & Lauren Photography.

Once family and friends gathered at the church, it was time for Kaci to walk down the aisle with her mother.

It was a beautiful ceremony; the room was full of love. The most special people in their lives got to witness the two becoming one.

Once the new Mr. & Mrs. said “I Do,” their guests made their way to Banyan Estate where all of the fun got started. The couple and their guests got to share in an evening full of delicious food, fun music and L O V E.

Once the band, Greg & Brian, started playing an immediate energy filled the room. Everyone was dancing, laughing and having fun. It was contagious.

Kaci & Adrian said their favorite part of the entire evening was their last private dance. The room cleared out as their guests lined up for the sparkler exit, and the two shared a private last moment together. It is something they will always remember.

Thank you Kaci & Adrian for allowing Bella Sposa Events to be apart of your most special day. We wish you both nothing but a lifetime of love and happiness. XO

Natalie & Brandon, November 23rd, Club Lake Plantation: Apopka, FL

As we reflect back on Natalie & Brandon’s wedding day all we can think about is how dreamy the day was.

This couple was everything a wedding planner could hope for: organized, detail-oriented, & to top it all off: the sweetest couple to work with.

Brandon & Natalie met by fate. Their dog, Maisy, brought the couple together while both visiting Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs. The rest is history.

The couple got engaged outside of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, right before the show they were going to attend. Brandon had balloons set up in the field that said “MARRY ME?”

When it came to choosing a venue, the couple decided on the gorgeous Club Lake Plantation venue. They loved the gorgeous oak trees and pergola the ceremony space had to offer. The couple knew this is where they had to say “I Do!”

After a two year long engagement, it was finally time to get this gorgeous couple married. Bella Sposa’s team made sure Natalie & Brandon could enjoy their special day and not have to worry about a thing.

Natalie & her maids spent the morning getting their hair and makeup perfected by the ladies at Makeup by Bella. It was a perfect morning.

Brandon wanted the first time he saw Natalie to be when she walked down the aisle. So once Natalie was ready, the couple shared a first touch. Time stood still and many tears were shed. It was a special moment.

Once family & friends arrived, it was time for the ceremony. Natalie was escorted down the aisle by her father. And Brandon was able to see his beautiful bride for the first time.

Natalie & Brandon shared their heart-felt personal vows with one another in front of all their favorite people. It was a perfect ceremony.

After their special ceremony & fun cocktail hour, the new Mr. & Mrs. invited their guests to share in an evening full of love, yummy food & fun.

The guest tables were perfectly decorated with gorgeous pops of colors. Orlando Flower Market did a beautiful job on the floral design.

For dessert, Sugar Sugar Cake Boutique perfected a beautiful 4-tier cake alongside delicious cupcakes. The dessert display was stunning.

Once the party got started by Xclusive Deejays, dancing, laughter & a fun energy filled the room. It was quite the celebration for such a beautiful couple.

Thank you Natalie & Brandon for allowing Bella Sposa Events to be apart of your special day. It was an honor sharing this special milestone with the both of you. We wish you nothing but love & happiness in your future.

& a VERY special thank you to the following vendors for allowing this evening to be possible:

Stacey & Andre, February 8th, Walt Disney World’s Four Season Resort

It was the perfect February day at the gorgeous Walt Disney World’s Four Season Resort. It was time to get Stacey & Andre married.

We had the absolute honor of working closely with this loving couple. It was our mission to make their day as perfect as possible.

Stacey & Andre met at The University of Central Florida while attending school. A mutual friend set them up, he also ended up officiating their wedding. The two went on a date function together, and the rest is history.

On a trip to Tokyo, Japan, Andre got down on one knee in the middle of Shibuya crossing and proposed to the girl of his dreams.

When it came time for the couple to decide on a wedding venue, the choice was easy. After a visit to the beautiful Four Season Resort, they could not stop thinking about saying “I Do” at this location.

February 8th quickly approached and their day was full of flawless memories. Starting with Stacey getting ready in a suite with her gorgeous girls.

The lovely ladies at Before the Aisle Weddings did an incredible job on the ladies hair and makeup.

The couple decided not to do a first look, and to wait for the special moment when Stacey walked down the aisle to see Andre for the first time.

This happened to be the couple’s favorite moment of their special day.

Stacey’s father escorted his beautiful daughter down the aisle in front of all of their close family and friends.

After their beautiful ceremony, the new Mr. & Mrs. invited their family and friends to enjoy delicious appetizers & drinks while the couple took their first photos as husband & wife. The photos were documented by the amazing Chynna Pacheco.

Following cocktail hour the guests attended the reception. The couple invited their guests to share in an evening full of delicious food, drinks, laughter, dancing & fun. It was truly a spectacular evening.

The guests tables were perfectly decorated with gorgeous florals and gold accents designed by the Gather & Grace team. It was a breathtaking space.

The party got started after dinner and the couple sang & danced the night away. The room was full of love.

Thank you so much Stacey & Andre for trusting us to make your special wedding day a magical one. It was an honor to be apart of your day.

We will you a life full of love and happiness.

Chabeli & Manuel, January 11th, Casa Feliz: Winter Park, FL

January 11th, 2020: Chabeli & Manuel’s wedding day was finally here and it could not have been a more perfect day in Winter Park, FL.

This couple deserved a flawless day full of nothing but beautiful memories; And that is exactly what it was.  

Chabeli and Manuel grew up in the same neighborhood and even attended the same highschool, but did not officially meet until Manuel’s senior year of college. When the two met, that was it; they were inseparable. 

During a dream trip to Iceland, Manuel got down on one knee inside of an ice cave inside of Iceland’s largest glacier! Once Chabeli returned from their romantic get-away she started planning the wedding immediately! 

The couple decided on the gorgeous venue in Winter Park, FL: Casa Feliz. This historic home is full of charm and has the most gorgeous blue shutters! The couple easily fell in love, and knew this was the venue for them. 

Their special day was perfect. Bella Sposa Events team handled all of the little details and ensured Chabeli and Manuel had nothing to worry about. 

Chabeli spent the morning in the gorgeous Bride’s room alongside her bridesmaids and Man of Honor. Karmel Designs perfected their hair and makeup and made everyone look flawless. 

Once all of their family & friends arrived (including their furry friend), Chabeli was escorted down the aisle by her father & step father. The couple shared their personal hand-written vows, which ended up being their favorite memory of the day. 

After their ceremony, the new Mr. & Mrs. invited their special guests to enjoy a night full of food, drinks and fun. The reception space was perfectly decorated with touches of blue to match the shutters. It was breathtaking. 

The guests tables had gorgeous floral arrangements, along with taper candlesticks that created a romantic atmosphere. 

The party got started by DJ Rey & the room filled with dancing, laughter and a contagious energy. It was truly a perfect night full of love. 

Thank you so much Chabeli & Manuel for trusting us to make your wedding day come to life. We wish you both nothing but a lifetime of happiness & love.

Carly & Zach, November 3rd, Cypress Grove Estate: Orlando, FL

This past November, Bella Sposa Events had the honor of working alongside Carly & Zach to help bring their dream wedding to life. 

It was a perfect day for a wedding at the gorgeous Cypress Grove Estate House in Orlando, FL. The college sweethearts fell in love with the elegant & traditional elements the estate home has to offer and couldn’t have pictured themselves getting married anywhere else.

Carly and her beautiful bridesmaids shared their morning getting ready in the bridal suite which overlooks the property. They had their hair and make-up perfected by the amazing ladies at Before the Aisle. 

Once Carly was ready, she joined with Zach to share a romantic first look before family and friends arrived. The couple felt it was important to have many little private moments together to take in the day as a couple; which also happened to be the couples’ favorite memories of their special day.

Once all of their family and friends arrived and were seated in the charming ceremony area, Carly walked down the aisle with her father. Carly & Zach shared their personal hand-written vows in front of their favorite people with the gorgeous lake view as their back-drop. 

After their personalized ceremony, the new Mr. & Mrs. welcomed their family and friends to share in an evening full of food, fun and laughter. It was truly a spectacular night full of love. 

The guests tables were beautifully decorated with greenery & pillar candles and the light blue napkins added the perfect pop! The gorgeous farm tables were decorated with cascading greenery and white florals designed by the lovely Gather & Grace team. 

The sweet-heart table was eye-catching; with a gorgeous overflow of greens and white florals as well as a mix of clear votives and gorgeous mid-century gold lanterns. This created a fun element that also made the sweet-heart table look elegant.

For dessert, Sugar Sugar Cake Boutique and Florida Candy Buffet created a gorgeous display for guests to enjoy.

Once the party got started by Bay Kings Band, laughter, dancing, celebration and excitement filled the room. It was a beautiful evening, for a beautiful couple.

Destination Wedding Planner | Real Weddings | Kristen & Zach | The Estate

Lets talk Real Weddings! This months we are featuring Kristen and Zach’s wedding in Atlanta, Georgia. They were kind enough to hire Bella Sposa Events as their destination wedding planner. The wedding was held at The Estate. It is truly one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever been to, located in the heart of Buckhead. The history behind this venue is a story in its self. Originally, it was the Antebellum Mansion built in 1797 in Wilkes County, Georgia. The Estate was then deconstructed, carefully moved and put back to its original structure.

“They were kind enough to hire Bella Sposa Events as their destination wedding planner.”

Later on, the venue was revamped and had a modern style incorporated. Modern day engaged couples found this style more appealing. The details and the architecture tell an amazing story and you don’t have to even be there to appreciate it. As a destination wedding planner, I first walked up to this venue and was immediately taken away by the attention to detail. The décor and the landscape that surrounded the property are amazing. The modern day design mixed with all the old architecture combined an element of design creating something truly uniqued but I could talk about the venue for days, so lets get to the good stuff.

destination wedding planner

Kristen and Zach were absolutely amazing to work with, they are the definition of true love. I completely understood their vision. You  could really see their love story come to life throughout the design. Kristen and Zach are such a fun couple and their wedding day was a great example of that. They love their families and friends and you could see that throughout the whole night.

“Destination wedding planner, Bella Sposa Events was truly honored to be a part of their big day!”

Their style for the wedding was elegant, yet sophisticated, with neutrals and pops of gold making it absolutely timeless. Kristen’s amazing dress was the perfect example of her personality – bubbly, funny and outgoing. Destination wedding planner, Bella Sposa Events was truly honored to be a part of their big day! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous. We are so incredibly blessed to now have them as good friends. Here at Bella Sposa Events ensures that we will still be there for you years to come after your wedding day. We aren’t just any wedding planner – we are family!

Tabitha with Tab McCausland Photography brought this amazing idea for this styled shoot to life.

“This Beauty & The Beast inspired shoot at The Orchid Garden is absolutely amazing and truly inspiring to any and all Beauty & The Beast fans.”

Let me start off by saying that for this styled shoot we had an amazing group of vendors and models. Everyone was very laid back.  The models were accommodating with our schedule. Jim with FyerFly Productions  showed us some love by playing absolutely amazing jams while we were busy styling for the shoot. This made the experience even more fun and laid back – thanks Jim, you rock!!!!

While designing and gathering ideas for this Beauty & The Beast inspired shoot, we came up with a fabulous way to mix in the old with the new! The design elements are traditional with a modern flare, and I have to tell you – it turned out absolutely amazing!! With my design background and Tabitha’s creative mind we came up with this beautiful concept and it will not disappoint.

“This styled shoot was shot at one of the most unique and beautiful venues in Orlando.  The Orchid Garden at Church Street Station in the heart of downtown.”

This styled shoot was shot at one of the most unique and beautiful venues in Orlando.  The Orchid Garden at Church Street Station in the heart of downtown. This Victorian Crystal Palace was perfect for our styled shoot, every element made Beauty & The Beast feel even more real in the photos that were captured. But lets be honest.  None of this would have even been possible if it wasn’t for the great vendors who chipped in their time and effort. They all did amazing work and I feel so blessed to have worked with you all!!!!
