{Carol & Jason @ Cross Creek ranch}

Carol looked beautiful and her lace gown with a simple up do was absolute perfection. She had some fabulous Kate Spade blue heels for the ceremony and blue flats for the reception.  Jason's gift to her a pearl bracelet, she said that she originally had picked out a cute "cheap" one and Jason said "no way" and surprised her with this beautiful one!  Carol's sister, Kristine, was her maid of honor and her mom, Jason's mom, and two of her friends were there to help Carol get bridal ready. Jason wore gator cufflinks and gator colored socks, and his dad was his best man. Jason brews his own beer and before the ceremony he had to tap all the kegs so it could be served for the reception. They said their vows under a beautiful arch of flowers as Carol's dad officiated the ceremony. The reception was on the back patio of the bed-and-breakfast and there were beautiful tall floral arrangements with mercury glass, pearls and white draping. Inside the B&B, they had adorable favors that were individual honey pots with a dipper for each guest to take home that said "Thanks for Bee'ing with us" I love the cake topper, it was a wooden bride and groom, and the groom was bald and had a beard colored on it to look like Jason:-)  Carol and Jason had the sweetest first dance to the country song "I don't dance".  Jason claimed this song is "me, because I don't dance!" But of course he did for Carol.  For the mother son and father daughter dance Carol and Jason shared the dance floor at the same time their parents. They also did some cute twists to the garter and bouquet. For the garter, the guys had to play musical chairs and the last man sitting was the one who got the garter! The guest that won sneakily stole the chair from the guy who would've been the winner.  For the bouquet toss, the couple that had been married the longest won the bouquet.  Carol and Jason made their exit with a sparkler send off and drove away in a beautiful old Rolls Royce.  Congrats Carol and Jason!!! xoxoxo
