Bella Sera Gardens Wedding | Telisha & Rob

We are so excited to introduce the newest Mr. and Mrs. in the Goodie and Smith Weddings family: Telisha and Rob! They had a beautiful, open air wedding ceremony at Bella Sera Gardens in Loxley, Alabama and we were honored to be a part of their stellar vendor team! Telisha and Rob’s day was all about family and so full of love. We know that Telisha and Rob will cherish these photos forever from their Bella Sera Gardens wedding – and we’re thrilled you get to see them today, too!

Bella Sera Gardens Wedding

One of the most meaningful things to us about a wedding day is the traditions and family involved. For Telisha, that meant including her grandmother’s wedding rings in her details. It was so special to see her be able to include something from someone that was so important to her. And just the idea of bringing her family’s heirlooms into a wedding day… it makes us emotional! Isn’t it the sweetest? After Telisha was dressed, she had a reveal with her bridesmaids and family. They were both absolutely perfect!!! Remember, first looks don’t have to just be for the bride and groom!!

Telisha and Rob also had a first look! I know they were both excited to see each other. First looks often give us a little extra time with our couple… and some extra time for them to be together, too, around all the festivities. There were lots of happy tears during their portrait time. Despite everything going on, these two were finally able to tie the knot!!!

Open Air Wedding Ceremony

Before long, it was time to head over to the open air chapel for their ceremony. This might be our favorite part of Bella Sera Gardens! I mean, it’s just beautiful! With the open air design, there’s not much needed in the way of decorations, but Telisha and Rob added just enough greenery and their own signs for a little customization. And it was SO elegant! With more happy tears, Telisha and Rob said “I do” as the gorgeous day filtered in around us.

After their emotional ceremony, it was time for the party! Their guests were so much fun and so relaxed. It made for a really fun reception. As everyone danced and enjoyed the delicious food from Bella Sera Gardens, Telisha and Rob had a chance to say hello. We even managed to sneak them out for a few portraits in the courtyard at dark! Just wait until you see Telisha’s bridal portraits. They’re STUNNING! They ended the night with a sparkler exit (our favorite!) and we all wished them well.

Congratulations again, Telisha and Rob! Your wedding day was absolutely gorgeous!! We loved being a part of documenting your special day for years to come!
