April Wedding at Bella Sera Gardens | Madeline & Chase

Congratulations to Madeline and Chase! We celebrated their breathtaking April wedding at Bella Sera Gardens in Loxley, AL. It was a such a perfect day to get married. It was like something out of a movie! The details and flowers were so pretty. Take a look at their images – We are LOVING these gorgeous wedding photos!

A Wedding Day at Bella Sera Gardens

Madeline and Chase had their wedding day at a gorgeous venue in  Loxley, AL. Both Madeline and Chase got ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen at the Bella Sera Gardens. The room where Sarah and the bridesmaids were getting ready had a beautiful wooden wardrobe that we hung her dress on and added an extra element of charm to the pictures.

After getting ready, Madeline did a first look with her dad and fiance. Both reactions were so sweet! Madeline and Chase also exchanged notebooks titled “Letters to My Husband” and “Letters to My Wife”, giving them a sweet moment together as they read the letters. We followed up with bride and groom portraits on the boardwalk and by a charming, dusty pink, vintage car. We absolutely loved these portraits! This location is beautiful and provides for the perfect privacy as well as scenery for first looks and bride/groom portraits.

Ceremony at Bella Sera Gardens

After the portraits we headed over to the garden for the ceremony. It was a magical ceremony. Then we headed back to the main venue hall for the reception. It was an amazing time full of dancing and an exciting bouquet toss from the balcony! There were amazing decoration – including an unique, whimsical cart that double as a table – beautiful decorations, a cake cutting, first dances, and a send off with sparklers! We LOVE this venue! It was perfect for Madeline and Chase’s special day!
