Shannon & Brian
April 14, 2018
Bella Collina’s Tuscany-inspired setting was the perfect backdrop for Shannon and Brian’s romantic celebration. The couple wed in a beautiful outdoor ceremony on a sunny spring day. Brian and his groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos. Shannon’s bridesmaids looked stunning in rose gold-inspired floor-length dresses, which perfectly complemented her intricate pink high heels and the blush underlay of her fitted lace gown. Being a floral designer, Shannon wanted the flowers for their big day to be perfect. She carried a bouquet of roses, hellebores (her favorite) and other delicate blooms and greenery.
The couple shared a few moments together after the ceremony before joining their guests at a breathtaking indoor reception. Round tables were set with luxurious pink floral linens and rose gold dinnerware, while white candles and lush floral centerpieces sat atop farm tables. Place settings included blush china, pink linen napkins and custom laser cut wooden place cards. Shannon and Brian enjoyed a delicious dinner at a romantic sweetheart table before cutting into a beautifully delicate four-tier cake from Sprinkles Custom Cakes. Guests were also treated to a chocolate fountain, macarons and cannoli for dessert, along with a french fry bar as a fun late night snack! The evening ended with a luminous sparkler send off.

“My wedding gown was actually the first one I tried on at One & Only Bridal Boutique in Orlando. I loved the blush undertone and the lace detail on the train/back of the dress. I wanted to look around just to be sure that was the one. I tried on 20+ dresses and still only thought about that first one! So I went back with family and knew it was the one!” -Shannon
“One of my favorite moments was right after we walked down the aisle as husband and wife we had a few moments alone, just us, which was so sweet. I recommend trying to take at least five minutes to go somewhere private with your new husband. Take that moment to enjoy each other alone without all the excitement.” -Shannon
“My profession is a floral designer so my flowers were important to me! I wanted the flowers to feel romantic. I wanted to be sure my favorite flowers were included in the design, which are Hellebore! Raining Roses did such an amazing job at bringing my vision to life!” -Shannon
“My husband and I have always loved Italy and it feels like you are in a part of Tuscany while being there! We absolutely love Bella Collina and their amazing staff!” -Shannon
