    Amazing!

    We had our wedding at Bella Sera on 5/24/2020. We fell in love with the venue from the moment we visited it! They provide both an outdoor and indoor ceremony option. We chose do have our ceremony in their chapel, which was absolutely beautiful. The reception hall is equally as stunning and holds a large amount of people. Rachel and Riki were INCREDIBLE to work with, especially with having our wedding plans so up in the air with COVID-19. They were responsive, accommodating, creative, kind, and so FUN to work with! I highly recommend this venue!!

    Bella Sera & Rachel made my daughters wedding day perfect!

    I would highly recommend Bella Sera to any Bride. From the first time my daughter and I met with Rachel we knew Bella Sera was the place for us. Rachel was very knowlegable and helpful through the whole expierence. The day of the wedding, she made sure everything ran on time and went smoothly. The Bella Sera property is beautiful, well kept. My daughter had the most perfect wedding and we can't thank Rachel, Riki, and the Bella Sera staff enough.

    Phenomenal venue

    Our wedding was so phenomenal and we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out. Rachel and Riki were amazing at working with us especially since we were out of state for 98% of the planning process! They made things so easy and helped direct things the day of! I couldn’t have done it without them!

    Amazing venue!!! It was truly my dream wedding!

    This venue was absolutely amazing and so beautiful. I can’t wait to see my wedding pictures! Not only is the venue phenomenal but the people that work there are equally amazing! Mrs. Deb was so great to work with. She is amazing! I never got stressed during the planning meetings because I knew she had it under control. She is very professional and organized. Deb and her team helped make my wedding look like something of the movies! It was a dream wedding. I would highly recommend booking this venue!!

    Bella Sera Ranch was wonderful!

    My daughter got married in May of 2019 at Bella Sera. It's hard to put into words how magical and how special the evening was. The Bella Sera team works together like a family. Everyone involved in our wedding was very supportive, professional and kind. I can't say enough about this beautiful venue! The food was wonderful and the venue was decorated so beautifully! Our flower arrangements were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen at a wedding! Deborah Walston, the owner, and the rest of her staff were a dream to work with. Deborah told me that she would take care of everything and that I could actually enjoy my daughter's wedding. She was right! It was a fairy tale night that will be remembered forever! Thank you to the Bella Sera Ranch Family!

    Fully engaged, very helpful

    I cannot say enough good things about Bella Serra Ranch. My wife and I were very short on time in the months leading to the wedding, which made planning every last detail on our own impossible. But Rachel and Deborah helped us so much to make our day perfect. Thank you to Bella Serra and their entire staff.

    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.

    I could not have picked a better venue for my big day! They were easy-going and allowed me to make my day exactly what I wanted. It was forecast to rain and they took care of all the details just in case we needed to move inside. They made the call last minute to keep it outdoors and it could not have been a better evening! Overall, a wonderful and beautiful wedding day (:

    I seriously cannot recommend Bella Sera Ranch enough! Deborah and Rachel are incredible and will most definitely make your venue selection process, wedding planning, and day of go wonderfully. Deborah thought of everything to make our day perfect! An example of this that I will never forget is that my now husband, Will, and I wanted to have a private dinner in the bridal suite after the ceremony before being introduced. We wanted to do this for a couple reasons; one, this way we get some one on one time together before the whirlwind of the reception begins and two, so that we could actually try and eat something. Deborah took it upon herself to make the bridal suite perfect for us! We were anticipating having some plates of food and sitting on the provided couch, but no. Deborah had a table and 2 chairs placed in the room, had our plates made along with a carafe of sweet tea waiting for us, the lights lowered to set a romantic and intimate feel, and placed a candle and vase of flowers in the middle of the table. I will forever treasure that time with my brand new husband sharing our wedding meal together and Deborah made it all the more special!
    Deborah and Rachel were professional throughout the entire wedding planning process, they were quick to respond to any questions, and so unbelievably helpful. I am telling you, I seriously cannot express just how wonderful these two women are and how grateful we are that we found Bella Sera Ranch!

    Everything was exactly what I wanted 😊

    We were married on June 1st. I emailed to ask if they would accommodate a family of 6 and they said yes! Everything was beyond my expectations 😊. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful place or kinder people.
    We had a meal after we exchanged our vows in the beautiful church. Our meal was delicious!
    I would definitely recommend Bella Sera Ranch!

    The absolutely most perfect wedding ever. Everything was flawless from the first day we met Deborah and Rachel. They both were very accommodating to ever need. I told my daughter that something would go wrong on her wedding day but it would be what she remembered for 20 yearrs. There wasn’t a DJ gkethi g that was not perfect. You cannot pick a better venue or a better group of professionals to work with. The experience was stress free. If I could give Bella Sera 10 stars I would. Do not think twice about this venue. Thank you Deborah, Rachel and staff for the impeccable memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

    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.
    All I can say is thank you so much for all the happy memories I have in your venue.
