Bella Collina wedding reception

imagejpeg_0 imagejpeg_1 2 imagejpeg_1 3

Armaan and Shawn had a multi day event but we just handled the one day with them.  We started at the Sikh temple for a ceremony, then the guests had a nice break to relax/get ready for the evening event which was held at Bella Collina Golf Club in San Clemente.  They had cocktails while overlooking the golf greens and the hills surrounding, its such a beautiful view, and then in the dining room we had a mix of long and round tables for guests.

I helped them pull their vendor team together for all events, even though we were only physically present on the one day.  I handled the ceremony at the Temple and Teri handled the event at Bella Collina.  Jim Kennedy/photographer, Robles Video/so fun to see you a few times in a couple of months, my awesome Oscar who does such a beautiful job for hair and makeup for my beautiful Indian brides, and not that you can see it, but Matthew of OCAVS did a great lighting job at Bella Collina.  Pics above courtesy of me and Teri!! lol

Then I got to see all the aunties and relatives and bride/groom at another wedding a few weeks later, love it!!

Till tomorrow

Bella Collina-San Clemente

Now most of my weddings are at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna and St Regis Monarch Beach but I came across this venue a few years ago and have waited for the right couples to come along to have their weddings there and finally this year, had two weddings here.  Look at that ceremony backdrop, who knew in the OC you could find this amount of open space no more than 10 minutes off the 5 freeway.  The ceremony setup is great, the chairs are on levels that are amphitheatered down to the ceremony platform area.

Stacy and Tom and I spent a whole day driving around the OC looking for their perfect venue which they thought had an ocean backdrop, I made this our last stop knowing they would love it, and they did.  The building/area is yours only after the golfers leave, and it reminds me of a beautiful lodge on the east coast or Scottish moors areas!!  The cocktail area is inside/outside and has views over the greens/valleys and the ballroom is one wall of windows with the same view and also an outside patio and has really friendly feel.  Our colors and rentals fit in beautifully.  Karen and the team there are a joy and easy to work with for sure.

An awesome vendor team was hand picked: Frank Salas/photo-thanks for the pics above, Karen’s Flowers, Peter/Vive Ent-dj-ceremony thru the end, Shane Productions/video, Rentals/Monico.

Till next time
