Bella Sera Ranch, TX – Whitney and Neil’s Fall Wedding

Whitney and Neil’s wedding day has been a long time in the making!  But in all honesty, we can’t imagine having it any other way!

How else do you plan for such a dream come true?

Our day started out at the beautiful Bella Sera Ranch, capturing Whitney’s gorgeous bridal details (we’re still awing over that playful BHLDN dress and topper!!!)

Whitney used parts of her favorite baby blanket to wrap around her bouquet.  It was a tearful process, but indescribably sentimental to have to connect her past with her future!

And how many brides give out gifts on THEIR wedding days?!  Whitney was so sweet when she handed a custom bridal album and heartfelt note to her Grandmother!

And of course, after getting Whitney ready, we had to check in on one of the sweetest grooms ever, Neil!  He was calm and relaxed, a total rockstar, and totally ready to roll in about 2 minutes (you guys are pretty lucky!)!
