On a breathtaking Saturday night in August, Ana and Neil exchanged wedding vows in front of family and friends at Bella Collina. This is one of the most romantic wedding venues in Central Florida with a Mediterranean vibe. Sparks flew from this couple from the altar to the dance floor and the exit at the end of the night! We loved celebrating with you!

Bella Collina Romantic Lawn Ceremony

The wedding began with Sweet Child of Mine as the wedding party walked down the aisle to their places. Next, the bride took her first step down the aisle to a beautiful rendition of Can’t Help Falling in Love With You, by Haley Reinhart. Ana met Neil at the altar and the two exchanged their vows in front of 180 guests. After their first kiss as husband and wife, the newlyweds walked hand in hand to their future while  “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns n Roses.

Introducing the Newlyweds with DJ Ray Vales of Soundwave Entertainment

Cocktail hour was over and it was time to head to the ballroom for the reception. The entire ballroom was elegantly draped.  Soundwave provided 32 LED Lights in a warm candlelight glow.  We also provided a pinspot on the wedding cake to illuminate its beauty.  

It was time for formal introductions of the wedding party. “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley played as the bride and groom’s parents danced into the reception. Next, it was time for the wedding party to get the party started as they walked out to “Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee! Last but not least, the bride and groom made their grand entrance full of bad bunny energy to “Mia” by Bad Bunny.

Now it was time to slow things down and showcase the love between Ana and Neil. They slow-danced to “Love Someone” by Lukas Graham for their first dance as a newly married couple. It was a beautiful moment to watch and their love radiated throughout the room.

Dinner and Dancing

The toasts began and it was time to eat! DJ Ray Vales provided a mix of Latin and American love songs through dinner. Right after the cake cutting the bride and her father shared a heartfelt dance to “Yo Primera La Ama.” Next, the groom and his mother shared a heartwarming dance to “Simple Man“! There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

After a few heartfelt moments, it was time for a little fun. “Danger Zone” played while the groom removed the garter and “Another One Bites the Dust” played while he threw it to the men. Next, it was time to see which lucky lady was going to catch the bouquet. “Man I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain rang out over the speakers.

Finally, the lights dimmed and it was time to dance the night away. La Hora Loca with DJ Ray was a hit with a mix of American and Latin Songs. The dance floor was packed and everyone was sporting their best moves!

Special Moment for the Newlyweds

At last, the night came to an end and the guests danced a final song to “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey before leaving the reception area. While it may have been time for everyone else to leave, the newlyweds shared a private dance to “Galway Girl” by Ed Sheeran. Soaking in the day together and enjoying each other’s company as husband and wife was a beautiful touch. As they made their way outside, their guests were waiting and sparks flew as they walked hand-in-hand to their new future together!

Held at the stunning Estate on the Halifax, Jessica and Gary’s wedding on March 26, 2021, was classic and elegant. The Estate on the Halifax is an idyllic Central Florida wedding venue located in Port Orange. Historic buildings sprawl over the 10-acre estate on the banks of the Halifax river, including a tavern, chapel, cottage house, and two estate homes.

Friends and family gathered for a beautiful outdoor garden ceremony. Jessica and Gary exchanged vows beneath the gazebo and walked down the aisle to “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen after being pronounced husband and wife.

Soundwave DJ Les Kopasz, Owner, began the reception by announcing the bridal party to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. The newlyweds shared a sweet first dance to “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison under the warm twinkling lights in the reception space. Gold chivari chairs, classic white table linens, and beautiful baby’s breath floral arrangements adorned the reception tables. Soundwave provided wall uplights in a warm candle light glow on the drapes, which added a layer of warmth and elegance to the room.

Guests hit the dance floor and enjoyed a mix of 70s-80s rock, disco, throwback 80s-90s, early 2000s, and current hits. Toasts, dinner, cake cutting, and parent dances rounded out the evening. The greatest surprise of the evening was the bride and groom serenading guests to karaoke renditions of “Shallow” and “Valerie.”

At last, everyone gathered around for one final dance as “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen played. As guests gathered outside for a sparkler sendoff, Mr. & Mrs. Bowen shared a private last dance to “Speechless” by Dan and Shay, closing out this elegant evening wedding at Estate on the Halifax.
