Alicia and Chris' Lakeside Ranch wedding was what my dreams are made of. I could move there and die happy. Ha! The working horse ranch has sprawling lake views and an endless amount of greenery. It's open air reception venue and picturesque ceremony sites took my breath away. The day was pure Florida romance! Seriously, one of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is seeing so many stunning venues - and how my couples transform them into something uniquely their own.
I happen to adore Alicia and Chris as much as I do Lakeside Ranch, so it was a perfect day for me! Alicia had a wonderful group of maids and they had a great time prepping for the big day. The light was heavenly in the bridal suite (which is actually in a massive house on-site that overlooks one of the many lakes).
Alicia was so excited to get down the aisle to Chris, and the look on her face when she did was priceless! They had such sweet vows and were just giddy when it was time to take newlywed portraits.
The decor was rustic elegance with accents of soft pink. The farm tables were the perfect touch for their family style dining. I loved the massive hay bails with their monogram. It was such a cute touch! The all white cake had crystal and rosette embellishments- adding just a touch of glam to the design.
It was a great joy and honor to photograph these meant-to-be soulmates. My heart is filled with gratitude and I wish them all the happiness in the world!
