Sometimes as planners we do not always have the luxury of attending a wedding and watching it with a relaxed mode instead of going to planning mode. But on February 7th, that day came for me.
In Dover, Florida a magical day was about to start. Even Florida’s sporadic weather could not stop the wedding from happening. The rustic wedding and ceremony took place at the beautiful Cross Creek Ranch. The ceremony took place under a large sprawling oak tree in a grass field behind a pond which was adjacent to the barn where the reception was to take place.
The bridesmaid’s looked superb in coral dresses and tan cowboy boots and the groomsmen wore grey suits with coral ties. The bride, wore an ivory sweetheart strapless gown and tan cowboy boots that were embellished with crystals. After the ceremony the guests filed into the barn for drinks and appetizers as they waited for the newlyweds.
The barn was decorated with rustic elements, splashes of coral and old family photos. There was even an old photo booth set up to entertain the guests. Once the newlyweds arrived at the barn the reception was ready to begin. After all the toasts, first dances and food there was time for the guests to mingle with the bride and groom.
The bride was a member of a sorority that we are all in, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and it is a tradition to “Oh Pat” the bride and groom at receptions. You may be wondering what is “Oh Pat”( it is a ritual to sing “Oh Pat,” a Kappa chant when a sister gets married.) This was a special moment for Nicole and the girls from Kappa Kappa Gamma that we will always remember. As the reception drew to an end the guests all went outside to the bonfire to make s’mores and to congratulate Nicole and Josh one last time.
