Meilyn+Chip's Bella Collina Wedding

I don't tend to write too much much here and just let the images speak for themselves. I feel compelled to say a couple things about Meilyn and Chip's wedding. First of all, it was at one of my fav venues ever, Bella Collina, and secondly, they had the absolute worst rain ever on their wedding day. The fantastic news is that the weather held out long enough for us to get some great shots before the ceremony, get through the ceremony and then get under the cover of the tent before what seemed like a hurricane hit us. Much respect to the crew at Bella for getting the food from the kitchen inside to the tent outside. Overall, it was a wonderful wedding and a great party!


Lauryn+Michael's E-Shoot - Cosí Bella











So beautiful indeed. Fantastic couple and the most utterly spectacular location I have ever shot at, especially in... Florida. Yes, this fantastic place is in Florida. Lauryn and Michael had Bella Collina in Clermont, Florida on their list of ceremony/reception sites but their guest count ruled it out. Though they aren't having their wedding there, the place with it's pure Italian beauty captivated them so much they wanted to do their E-Shoot there. I could not have been happier.

Needless to say, with all that hype, the shots better live up, and I really think they do. Lauryn and Michael were ready, willing and very able to explore this gem of a Florida location and with any luck at all, together we realized their Tuscan dreams.

For the record, if you are having your wedding at Bella Collina, I will give you a spectacular deal to be your photographer, that's how much I love this place. I have also been told by Stacy, the Membership and Events Coordinator at Bella Collina that they have prime dates available and as I've said with my services, you should NOT be afraid to ask how this fantastic location can fit into your wedding dreams. You may be surprised. Contact Stacy at, or at 407-469-4911 for more info. As with all my referrals, I don't get anything for sending you their way other than the possible chance to work there in the future, which I would consider a blessing.
