After the last year and a half, it’s safe to say that intimate wedding days are here to stay. This romantic editorial shoot hosted by Styled Shoots Across America and designed by Heather Benge is a beautiful reminder that intimate doesn’t have to mean boring. Heather and the team of incredible vendors created a one-of-a-kind wedding day for couples who want a small wedding day full of elevated details. Even the rain couldn’t stop us from having a wonderful time together at this intimate Bella Collina wedding! I am so excited to share this beautiful day was featured on Wedding Chicks this summer! See the feature HERE!
Romantic Bridal Look for Intimate Wedding Day
Our bride carried a small bouquet of blush and white flowers, which added a beautiful pop of color against her white gown. The dress from Eleanor’s Bridal was reminiscent of Juliet’s gown, bringing more Italian inspiration to the shoot. With textured sleeves and a simple silhouette, it was classic and elegant. Our groom wore a navy blue suit that stood out against the muted peaches, whites, and golds around the ceremony site and portraits. Together, they looked like a wonderfully stylish couple!
Rose and Peony Display for Outdoor Ceremony
Peach roses and peonies from Bluegrass Chic Weddings created a floral arbor for the ceremony site, right behind a small pond at Bella Collina. It was stunning! While we didn’t get to spend as much time as we hoped with it because of the rain, it created a beautiful backdrop for portraits of our bride and groom. With the brick patio and cafe lights, it was easy to forget we weren’t actually in Italy! If you’re looking for an easy way to upgrade your ceremony site, consider a big floral display! Trust me, it’s something you (and your guests!) won’t forget.
Cozy Wedding Reception with Blush and Gold Details
As the rain picked up, we headed into the reception space, where the vendor team had worked their magic. A cozy and romantic reception waited for us – perfect for a quiet evening. Filled with rose gold, blush, and gold place settings, the table was perfectly set for a small and intimate celebration. Our team utilized the collection of floral centerpieces and personalized place cards sitting on blush napkins to complete each place setting. I love how everything just came together so beautifully for this romantic Bella Collina wedding!!
Styled Shoots Across America and Heather Benge truly created an elevated intimate celebration that leans into the romance of the Italian countryside effortlessly. Every time I see these images, I’m transported to Verona and just feel so inspired by those two fair lovers. This styled shoot also reminds me that small can be beautiful and it’s absolutely worth it to bring the day you’re dreaming of to life! Bella Collina wedding days are always so elegant and dreamy – you can’t go wrong with this Florida venue!!
