About the Venue
The gorgeous property at Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club makes for a truly lovely wedding venue. Located in Orange County, you’ll most likely experience the perks of Southern California – sunshine, beaches and warm weather! Ceremony and reception locations have lush, vast views with plenty of open space to be customized to the bride and groom’s unique style and design of choice. The Roman Amphitheater, featured in the ceremony above, was built on the golf course in 2010 especially for wedding ceremonies at Bella Collina. Teared to overlook the golf course, this outstanding ceremony spot can hold from 100 to 1,000 guests. (Yes that’s correct, 1,000 guests! So large weddings are more than welcome here.)
From your Roman ceremony to your ballroom reception, the ballroom is a great place to dress up with DIY fun and great lighting for a rockin’ reception. One room is used for cocktail hour before you move into the spacious room for your reception. However, if you’re keen on an outdoor reception, they offer that too. The outdoor reception area is a spacious lawn with gorgeous views that can hold up to 500 guests. Then take a breath before the big day and head to the seashore just 10 minutes away!
Ask the Expert
The lovely bride Melissa Hsu is also a planner/designer at ME Events & Design. She shares what she adores about Bella Collina, and ultimately why she found it to be her perfect venue.
Bella Collina is a beautiful property that lends itself well to incorporating your own personal touches and themes, because it is almost a blank palette to work with. The gorgeous amphitheater ceremony site boasts an expansive view of the San Clemente Valley landscape, with endless rolling hills and trees. The openness of the site allows for each bride to express herself in the ceremony decor. Whether it’s an arch or simple pedestals, the view speaks for itself. The clubhouse also makes for great flow with cocktail hour on one side and the ballroom reception on the other. Both sides offer windows with breathtaking views and sliding doors that open up to private balconies. The ballroom space, with neutral tones and high ceilings, can be lit and decorated to incorporate your specific colors and theme. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the staff was gracious and the food was amazing. To this day, our guests still rave about the food and beautiful location!
