Ceremony and Reception Spaces
The Grand Lawn
The Grand Lawn offers breathtaking views everywhere you look. You’ll be surrounded by the beauty of the Tuscan architecture of the castle and rolling hills and sparkling lakes. You can have both your wedding ceremony and your reception on the Grand Lawn. After your wedding ceremony, the incredible team at Bella Collina will transform the space into an exquisite reception space where you and your guests can dance and party underneath the stars above. The Grand Lawn can accommodate up to 240 guests.
The Reflection Pool
If you’re having a smaller intimate wedding up to 50 guests, the Reflection Pool is a great spot! Surrounded by Italian cypress trees and the calming water of the Reflection Pool, you and your guests can dine on the venue’s royal feasting tables.
The Reflection Pool is also a great location for bridal portraits and cocktail hour for your guests to be served drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
The Ballroom Veranda serves as a ceremony space for up to 170 guests and also as an extension of the Ballroom. For your ceremony, you’ll have views of miles of rolling hills as you say your vows to one another. If you’d like to use this space for your reception, your guests can exit the Ballroom and enjoy drinks and fellowship under the ambiance of the night sky and twinkling lights.
If you’d like the comfort of being indoors, the Formal Ballroom can serve as your ceremony and reception space. With accommodations up to 170 guests, the Formal Ballroom has a more modern look. The crystal chandeliers and the large windows with black framing are the main design elements that make up this space.
If you’re planning a small intimate wedding for 30 guests of less, the Wine Cellar transports you and your guests to the grandeur of a European winery. The curved stone ceiling and walls provide a warm and intimate setting.
Siena Event Room
The Siena Event Room is a room to host your rehearsal dinner, welcome party or farewell brunch. This space can hold up to 60 of your guests and provides beautiful view of Lake Siena.
