Romantic Destination Wedding | Bella Sera Gardens | Sarra + Matt
Bella Sera Gardens is the perfect Romantic Destination Wedding Venue. It has the stunning beauty of the South, but also the charm Italy intertwined. Sarra and Matt fell in love with this Romantic Destination Wedding Venue because of it’s many dazzling details that make it such a beautiful place. From it’s indoor and outdoor ceremony options, to it’s Italian inspired bridal suite, to the absolutely beautiful courtyard- Bella Sera is a one of a kind wedding venue on the gulf coast.
Bella Sera Gardens is one of a kind, and so are Sarra and Matt. One of the most beautiful things about Sarra and Matt is they way they prefer each other. Sarra is continually thinking of Matt, and Matt is continually thinking about Sarra. The selflessness that their relationship has is inspiring! When I first met Sarra and Matt at their engagement session, I KNEW the relationship they had was special. The pure, innocent sparkle that Sarra has when she looks at Matt, and the kind, tender, joyful way Matt loves Sarra is so so sweet. These two are a match made in heaven!
Sarra was a dream to work with. She has such an incredible eye for detail, and carries herself with such grace! I was fortunate enough to work with her on numerous occasions, whether on a lunch date at Panera, during her Bridal Session at the Pillars (which became one of my new favorite sessions!!) or over the phone, Sarra included me in most every wedding day detail– which was a photographer’s dream!!
Sarra and Matt got married in July at one of the most romantic destination wedding venues in the Gulf, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Purple wedding details filled their wedding reception, as did lots of dancing and Mobile inspired mementos! Guests enjoyed King Cake as the Groom’s cake, a wonderful dinner catered by Namen’s and Mardi Gras beads as wedding favors! This wedding was beautiful. I am SO excited for Sarra and Matt !!
