Anyway, today I want to give you the scoop about our venue! YES...we already have our venue picked out...eeek!
Things that have already been checked off the wedding to-do list:
- My dress & shoes have been purchased (omg that's another post in itself)
- The date has been set: April 18, 2014
- The venue has been selected...and HELLO this venue is all inclusive. Talk about headache reduction!
- Photographers have been booked
- The guest list has been finalized (I was worried about this one...it wasn't too bad)
I know it doesn't look like that much, but we've been engaged for less than two weeks! The type-A in me is LOVING all of this!
On to our venue...
All photos can be found on the Cross Creek Ranch website here.
How gorgeous is this place?! And the cherry on top...it's about FIVE minutes from where I'm living right now!
It's called Cross Creek Ranch and it's located in Dover, Florida. We are going for a country/rustic theme and CCR is the perfect fit for our vision. It's a bit pricy, but like I said before, it's all inclusive (caterer, DJ, cake, flowers, planner, designer, and coordinator are all included) so totally worth the price if you ask me.
We're shooting to invite around 160-175 people. The ceremony will be under the big oak tree that you see in the bottom center photo. I plan on having doors set up though so Adam can't see me until I'm walking down the aisle toward him (tearing up just thinking about it!). Kinda like this:
The reception (aka PARTY) will be taking place in the stable (you can see that in the other photos in the collage above). Next to the stable there is an area for corn hole, horseshoes, AND a bonfire. BE STILL MY HEART. Told y'all this place is perfect.
Oh and one last thing for today...this is the color scheme that we are using for inspiration:
I am bubbling with joy! And I'm so glad that I have a place to share all of our excitement. Thanks for all the sweet congrats...y'all are seriously the best! I can't wait to marry my best friend...178 days to go!
