2016: A Year in Review

2016 was quite a year in the Bella offices! With over 20 weddings and events over the course of the year, we were thrilled to spend our year celebrating so much love and such fabulous couples.

Venue Highlight: Brush Creek Ranch

While we love Colorado — it is, of course, the place we call home! — there’s so much more to the mountains than just our state.

At the top of our list of places we’re dying to work, just a few hours north of the Bella office, is the absolutely gorgeous Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming. Continue reading

A Shimmering Blush and Gold Wedding at the Four Seasons Vail

There’s nothing more exciting than a couple that comes to us with a Big Idea.

Because they wanted to walk down the aisle OVER the Four Seasons’ pool! Continue reading
