When I first started planning my wedding and fell into the black hole that is wedding blogs, I would drool over all of those gorgeous California winery weddings.  Little did I know that we have stunning wineries right here in Texas.  Messina Hof Winery is nestled in the hill country of Texas and boasts some of the most gorgeous landscaping in the state.  Texas brides need look no further than our own backyard to have a Fredericksburg winery wedding that rivals those in California.  And Smith House Photography makes it look so easy with their unbelievable photographs.  There's even more goodness in the gallery.

From  Smith House Photography....Jessica and Chris got engaged and immediately contemplated eloping, but we are so glad they didn't! Their Messina Hof Winery wedding was absolutely gorgeous. The joy and tears shared by their small group of friends and family was absolutely worth the planning that ensued.
