Saying It's a Great Place is Not Enough
I got married in March 2018. It's been a few months, but thinking about my venue still brings a warm feeling to my heart. The place is beautiful. My husband and I fell in love with it the first we came out and I think we pretty much made up our mind already without telling each other by the time we parked our car on our visit. But a place can be pretty, but can still suck if the people that manages the place are not right. Well, this is what makes this place AWESOME and why it's special. Rachel T. made it all so easy. Being from out of town, most of my communication is through emails. One incident that I remember so well...the day before the wedding, the keg I ordered from the local place was not ordered. I sent an email to Rachel to notify her. I don't necessarily want/needed her to fix it, but I got a call and she told me Deborah (the owner) is calling another place to see if they will be able to help me. They also offered me some other options to help me out. That's going above and beyond.Sent on 10/26/2018
All I can say is thank you so much for all the happy memories I have in your venue.

Venue of Dreams
To say Bella Sera Ranch was perfect for my husband and my wedding would be an understatement. Deborah and her staff went above and beyond any of my expectations. Every time I thanked them, it never felt good enough. I would advise anyone in the East Texas area to choose this venue for their wedding and any other event. There is no other like them. I promise you will not walk away disappointed.Sent on 01/30/2019
