{Lu & Alex @ Cross Creek Ranch}

Lu wore 3 gorgeous gowns on her wedding day. For the ceremony, she wore a lace sleeved gown with a long train and chapel length veil, with red platform sneakers underneath!  Alex was in a black tux with a white jacket and bowtie, so handsome! He had pure joy on his face as he saw Lu being escorted down the aisle by her brother.  They had the perfect December day for their outdoor ceremony and reception at Cross Creek Ranch.  The patio was draped in lights with gold, pink, and wine accents.  They included subtle hints of 2 of their favorite things, a little spider man was peeking out from under the cake and their M&M had their photos as kids and a Darth Vader!  Lu changed into a lace party dress for the reception that was totally for dancing.  Later in the evening they snuck out and Lu changed into her 3rd outfit for a fabulous surprise Tango!  So many amazing moments, thank you Lu and Alex for having us be a part of it!!

{Ashley & Marco @Cross Creek Ranch}

Ashley and Marco had a pretty country cottage themed wedding at Cross Creek Ranch.  Ashley looked beautiful in her lace gown, and all her jewelry was her mom’s.  It was rainy for the ceremony, so instead of it being under the big oak tree it was under the twinkling lights and chandelier in the rustic barn.  Even though it wasn’t what was planned, it was very sweet and romantic!  The rain stopped we were able to do all the rest of their photos outside.  Ashley’s sister’s fiancé was the best man and quite a character!  The reception was draped in white and pink accents with mason jars, books, and vintage frames.  Ashley’s grandmother was so much fun, she was on the dance floor all night long!  Her grandparents have been married for 55 years.  They had a very short toast, just klinking glasses, no speeches!  They ended the night with sparklers and it was an amazing evening had by all! Congrats Ashley and Marco!!! xoxoxo

{Ciara + Nathan @Cross Creek Ranch}

Ciara and Nate met in the Army and both LOVE animals!  They already gotten married while in Afghanistan to keep them from getting separated from each other.  All the girls wore cowboy boots, and the boys wore Converse with green laces.  Ciara's garter was camo with an Army badge on it.  Their dog and Ciara's sister's dog also walked down the aisle and were part of the bridal party.  It was a very rainy day, but that didn't stop them from having their ceremony outside under umbrellas.  Their flower girls and ring bearer were adorable and the ring bearer actually slept all the way down the aisle.  Their color was green so it must have been for extra good luck!  Instead of gifts, they asked their guests to donate to an animal shelter, which I think is an awesome idea.  There were chalkboards with paw prints, special green drinks, and black damask linens.  It was all about celebrating with friends and family, and that they did:-)  Congrats Ciara and Nate!! xoxoxo

{Tina & Eric @Cross Cross Creek Ranch}

Tina and Eric's wedding day was full of so many amazing moments and lots of awesome details!  While the girls were getting ready, the guys were playing horseshoes on the lawn.  They of course needed to test out the lawn games for their guests at cocktail hour!   Cross Creek ranch had a very important checklist for Eric in the man cave:-)  Tina looked beautiful in her simple gathered gown and the girls in flowy pink dresses.  Even though their ceremony was outside, they entered through wooden double doors with wreaths on them and little burlap bows going down the aisle.  Here's another awesome favor idea, little jars of honey that said "Meant to Bee" on them.  There were burlap accents everywhere, T + E in a heart for the drinks and on the cake.  They also did a trail mix station that said "toss in some raisins for when we grow old together".  Twinkle lights, vintage furniture, chalkboards, and a headboard for their menu.  It was a perfect evening for their outdoor wedding!!  Congrats Tina and Eric!!! xoxox

{Kamila & Chris @Cross Creek Ranch}

Kamila and Chris had a simple, yet beautiful, garden themed wedding.  Kamila wore a beautiful vera wang dress and the girls wore long flowy charcoal gray dresses with a black sash and white flowers.  They said their I do's under the big oak tree.  Their guests enjoyed lawn games like horseshoes, croquet, and cornhole during the cocktail hour. Cross Creek recently did a brick path and flooring on in the rustic barn and it looks amazing!  Each of the tables had different china table settings on them to go with the garden theme.  Everyone enjoyed the fun party, cake, and sweets table!  After all the festivities were over their exited to sparkers.  Congrats Kamila and Chris!! xoxo

{Dollyanna + Darren @Cross Creek Ranch}

It was a beautiful day for a wedding!  Dollyana's step-father is a pastor, and was the officiant for the ceremony in Cross Creek Ranch's new chapel.  I love the bright white open feel, with wood floors and crystal chandaliers. She added quite a few personal touches to the decor for the day like her guest sign in thumb print tree, mason jars for everyone to drink out of, and her silver sparkly Converse. The color of the day was purple.  Purple flowers, purple bridesmaids dresses, purple tables and a cake with purple accents.  Darren's brother Joe gave a pretty awesome speech throwing cards, and being a jokester:-)  Darren also gave a fantastic toast and thanked everyone for celebrating with them.  Everyone had a blast dancing the night away under the stars and full moon.  Darren and Dolly ended their night with a sparkler exit and it was the perfect day! Congratulations Dolly and Darren! xoxoxox

Americana Concept on Every Last Detail

We are so excited that our "Americana" wedding concept photo shoot was on Every Last Detail blog for Labor Day Yesterday!!  Fun, creative, and out of the box is what we love!!  We were going for vintage all American and wanted to show some really fun and unique details all in red, white, and blue.  Jessica, from Simply Divine events built the concept with vintage Coke crates, a chalk board menu, an old window made into a mirror for the seating chart, and their guest sign ins were starts hung from burlap string.  A little creative spin on cupcakes, red velvet cupcakes with creme cheese frosting in mason jars.  Continuing on with the red white and blue was the bouquet and stationary down to the bride and groom chair tags.  Nikki looked amazing with the soft and subtle look that Marissa, from Collective Creations created for her hair and makeup.  She looked amazing in the lace gown from Anglo Couture that was accented with a belt and broach.  With David in his wranglers, boots and belt buckle, a perfect match!!

{Rachel + Derick @Cross Creek Ranch}

A little bit'o vintage, New Orleans, and European.  Rachel and Derick created their own American Gothic portrait as well.  I love the sweet moments Rachel had with her dad before walking down the aisle, seriously makes my heart happy.  This was the Saturday it was pouring and coincidentally their officiant was going to be talking about Noah and the flood so it was the perfect passage for the day.  After the rain passed it was a beautiful evening for some croquet and horse shoes.  They did a New Orleans style "Second Line" parade to enter the party.  Here's a little look into their wedding day.  Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs!!!
