We absolutely loved every minute of the planning with Ashley & Jason. They had a short engagement, and a clear vision for their gorgeous Bella Collina wedding.
With their large families and closest friends in attendance, the big day was finally here! The weather was beautiful & warm, as we were slowly starting to wait for a Florida fall day. The event lawn was simply set, with willow branch ceremony decor. Our favorite part of this ceremony was that Ashley’s father, a pastor, was the one to marry them. It must have been such an honor to be able to give your daughter away, and then take on the role of bringing them together as one. The heartfelt ceremony was filled with a lot of faith-based elements, such as a communion and a foot-washing tradition.
Once the couple said their “I Dos”, guests made their way up to the reflection pond for appetizers and refreshments, while the newlyweds took photos with their families and bridal party members. We loved seeing the two families (and lots of nieces & nephews!) join together to celebrate a beautiful couple. After cocktail hour was done, it was time for guests to enter the beautiful ballroom. As they walked in, they were welcomed by Ashley & Jason’s color palette of champagne, navy and pink. The tables were dressed in rich champagne satin linens and napkins. Centerpieces consisted of soft pink hydrangea floral arrangements.
This Bella Collina wedding truly encompassed everything that a wedding is about. We witnessed true love, faith and compassion from Ashley & Jason. Their friends & families loved celebrating their day of love by dancing the night away. This wedding wouldn’t have been complete without a perfect ending – a sparkler exit!
Ashley & Jason, THANK YOU for letting us be a part of your special day! We absolutely loved helping you pull all your planning together. You & your families are wonderful, and we wish you all the best! XO
