Tracy & Nick / Bella Collina Wedding

Last week we gave you a glimpse into Tracy and Nick’s wedding through their First Look; we knew that Dustin Prickett of Sunglow Photography shared way too many breathtaking images for just one blog post.

Just northeast of the Tampa Bay Area is Lake County, named for its many beautiful lakes, surrounded by rolling hills and breathtaking views. Located just off Lake Sienna with views of Lake Apopka you will find the luxurious Tuscan styled venue, Bella Collina.

As you enter this sprawling venue you are welcomed by lush landscaping, Tuscan architecture, and fountains with some of the best views in the region.

Tracy wore a stunning organza ball gown with a lace bodice and sweetheart neckline. The sheer illusion front, back, and sleeves with lace applique added a touch of modesty. She carried a bridal bouquet of full white, cream and pale, pale pink cottage roses, white sweetheart roses, white freesia and seeded eucalyptus.

The bridal party wore elegant cream-colored gowns with a spaghetti strap detail, and a shimmering sheer overlay with an almost art deco linear detail and carried bouquets similar to Tracy’s bouquet.

Nick and his groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos with black satin shawl collar, vest and bow tie and Nick added a little fun with his silver Superman cufflinks.

Tracy and Nick selected The Atrium, a partially enclosed breezeway with vaulted ceilings and sandstone columns, a fountain, and views of the Reflecting Pool for their wedding. This intimate wedding location was set with white chiavari chairs and the aisle was adorned with bouquets of white hydrangea, cream and white roses, white lisianthus and eucalyptus.

The most luxurious wedding detail was the Atrium’s chandelier, which hung directly overhead as Tracy and Nick exchanged their vows. It was adorned with elegant hanging green amaranthus, thick branches of eucalyptus and soft creamy roses.

Guests enjoyed cocktails by the Reflecting Pool with sweeping views of the lake; along with hand passed hors d’oeuvres and a bruschetta station with assorted fresh toppings.

Family and friends made their way down to the Grand Lawn for dinner and dancing under a canopy of market lights with a sunset view while Tracy and Nick enjoyed time together.

Long white dining tables were draped with floor length white linen and surrounded by classic white chiavari chairs with white cushions. Tables were lined with gold candlesticks, chunky candles and mercury glass containers with soft white flowers with gold charger plates adding a big pop of color.

The head table was accented with a long trailing rope of soft greenery, along with white roses, and candles. The couple’s chairs were decorated with ropes of greenery and beautiful gold script ‘bride and groom’ signs.

Before ending the night Tracy and Nick cut their unique “Naked Cake”, a white cake barely frosted and decorated with simple soft pink and white roses.

Their night ended with some quiet time together for photos by the Reflecting Pool and their departure was among a shower of sparklers.
