Getting married at Bella Collina allowed Jasmine and Devin to maintain the countryside garden theme they envisioned for their wedding, despite it being winter. Bella Collina also has a timeless feel that captured the enchanting spirit of Florida. Jasmine has a deep love for Pride and Prejudice, the 1920s, and all things romance, and she kept those things in mind as she designed the invitations and decorations for the reception. Photographers Nate + Lori captured every moment from Jasmine and Devin’s romantic wedding, starting with their adorable first look.
Jasmine and Devin
Bella Collina, Orlando, Florida
One of the first things we choose was the wedding invitation papers and we then choose colors within that paper we liked. Also, I have always loved pink and could not imagine not having it in the wedding. The rest of the colors were picked because we wanted a very natural look to our flowers. We wanted it to feel like an enchanting garden.
We met in Orlando at UCF and we wanted to get married there when we looked around we were looking for a venue that would be attentive to our wedding and did not have multiple events going on that day. Also, we wanted a venue that made you feel like you were outside of Florida and captured the enchanting spirit.
I did not want a dress that was too modern. The best part of my dress was the shape, it made me feel like a grown up princess. I had always imagined I would wear a ball gown but after trying on my dress I loved how it made me feel and look. The bridesmaid dresses looked like they were from old Hollywood in the 20s. The groomsmen suits were a great mix of both timeless with a touch of modern which is very much the grooms style.
Our photographers are amazing!!!! I cannot explain how wonderful they are to work with. They made the atmosphere light and easy. They never made us feel uncomfortable or even like anyone was around. We keep saying there is no one else we would want to do our photos for our future events.
Our wedding planner had a great idea of pulling us away and giving us a private room to enjoy the cocktail hour foods and just take five minutes together without anyone and just really embrace how we felt for each other at that moment.
