REAL WEDDING | Rustic and Chic Fall Florida Wedding | Rad Red Creative

Danny and Katie’s wedding was a rustic, chic, fall wedding at the STUNNING Cross Creek Ranch! They incorporated burgundy accents, greenery chandeliers, and a nod to the Groom’s die hard love for FSU. Love it!

How did the two of you meet? We met at work. He came up to me; he had heard my father was sick. Told me he was praying for my family and I.  Describe your engagement: Eventful, exciting, very laid back Personal or handmade details: My wedding rings are my grandmother, I made the sign Daddy here comes the love of your life,  the ring pillow was used in my parents wedding Describe your wedding flowers: Color- blush, reds, deep reds, whites, green Blooms- daisys (which are my fav flower) Lillies, roses, hydrangeas Memories and Stories about the Day: Holding hands with my husband saying our vows, reading the letters my bridesmaids and parents wrote me, looking at the scrapbook my bridesmaids created, my matron of honors amazing speech/rap Your first dance song: Head over boots- Jon Pardi The thing that we would have done differently is? Don’t  stress over the wedding favors… actually don’t worry about having wedding favors… you end up with a box of them left over…  Also if you’re having an outdoor wedding… choose your heels carefully, or find something that will help keep your heels out of the dirt! Our favorite detail of the wedding was: the 20 minutes between ceremony and reception I had alone with my husband (after pictures) Your advice for other plus size brides:  don’t get caught up not looking like other (skinnier) brides, be the best you.  Forget about what others think… If you love it, rock it! Three adjectives that describe the day: Elegant, Magical, Enchanted
