Frankly, I'm not even sure where to start for this one. This wedding was one for the books; amazing venue, warm & welcoming family, an all-star vendor team, and the most loving couple!
Shane and Brittany tied the knot in September at the gorgeous C-Bar Ranch in Alachua, just a 20 minute drive north of Gainesville, FL. This venue prides itself on being one of the most "country chic" spots in our area, and that claim does not disappoint. From the lawn games, fire pit, and air-conditioned barn, guests remain comfortable while having a blast. Shane & Brittany wed right in front of the pond, where guests looked on at the gorgeous oaks and open field.
Once inside, they celebrated by dancing the night away to DJ Josh Taylor and listening to touching, tear-inducing speeches from their best friends. The evening ended with a sparkler exit, where the newlyweds then learned they would be driven to Orlando in a stretch limo as a surprise from Shane's mother! (To say they were excited & surprised was an understatement). The day's events & special touches that made their wedding unique couldn't have happened without their planner, Julie Herman. Each wedding I work with Julie runs smooth, on-time, and stress-free for our couples (& us vendors!).
The parts of the day that really stand out in my mind are related to the people involved: these two have such a loving, tight support system surrounding their marriage. Their family and friends surrounded them with kind words, honest advice, and true encouragement. I loved my time with Shane & Brittany, and their families as well!
