Jessica and Justin, what can I say? I will go back over a year now when they came into my studio to talk photography – still unsure about the location of the wedding and even the exact date for that matter. The story was set. Outgoing smart couple super excited about planning their wedding; searching for the perfect venue and not settling for anything less than exactly what will thrill them and their family and friends on their ‘big Day’. Knowing I was going to be part of this union know matter where or when, I was patient but knew I was in for something new; different. Cross Creek Ranch, sure I had heard some recent buzz about it, no I had never photographed a wedding there before. But that is about to change..
I was in for a rare treat. Being an on the coast Sarasota Photographer, photographing a wedding like this is not a weekly occurrence Hello Florida countryside meets charming horse stables meets photography eye candy everywhere. Honestly I didn’t know where to start. I was so excited see what we were going to come up with for this amazing couple at this new venue. And it goes a little something like this:
It certainly is isn’t?
Love this touch, the mossy tree heart with inscription. Perfect
What could be more perfect, fluttering clothes pinned photo’s from the couples past: yes I looked at every one of them. Treats for everyone, and propped up on a table supported by vintage Jack Daniel Barrels. Sweet! No pun intended:)
Love the country inspired vintage theme, from the antiques set about the place right down to the cowboy boots!
Hello! Rustic Chandelier billowing in the wind, vintage inspired canning jars filled with a mix of wild flowers- grand oak tree adorned with the big A. It couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for a late afternoon ceremony for a couple in love. Even I had to hold back my tears: Really!!
Oh and there were a few surprises as I was walking around the grounds with the wedding party: a tractor. painted orange. placed perfectly in the field. Of Course!
Jessica and Justin, thank you so very much for finding me and letting me be part of your special day. And thanks for following through with your vision so my camera and I could be there to experience it with you. Well done! All the happiness to this amazing couple!!
