The moment Sabra saw the Villa Antonia, she knew it was the place she and Bentley would say “I do.” This couple had dreamed about having a destination wedding, but when their plans were derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic, they decided to celebrate closer to home. Sabra says that their wedding looked just like the Italian villa celebrations she had always wanted - and I have to agree.

Striking Design Details

Sabra wanted to let the dramatic venue really shine in all its beauty, so she went for decorating details that were simple but striking. Her bouquet and flowers had splashes of crimson, and her bridesmaids all wore all black dresses. In all the weddings I’ve photographed, black bridesmaids' dresses are pretty rare - and I loved the drama they brought to the aesthetic of this Villa Antonia wedding!

Windy Weather Couldn’t Stop this Villa Antonia Wedding

The original plan was to have the ceremony and the reception outside. The courtyard is one of the things that makes this wedding so special - dining under strings of lights as the sun sets over the trees. On this particular day, though, we had very powerful winds. The wind didn’t derail the beautiful outdoor ceremony, where Sabra and Bentley said their vows with sweeping views of the Texas hills behind them, but the reception didn't quite go to plan. Guests and staff alike pitched in to move tables and chairs inside and out of the wind! It was hectic, but it couldn’t steal the joy from the occasion. The dance floor was full all night!
