Megan & Daniel's Ranch Wedding

Megan & Daniel got married this year at C Bar Ranch in Alachua, Florida. We were honored to get to help them plan and coordinate their day, from start to finish. You could not find a sweeter couple anywhere, or any two people more on the same team and supportive of each other.

It didn't matter what 2020 threw at us, we powered on and Megan and Daniel kept their amazing positive outlooks through it all. We ended up postponing their day due to Covid and once we were finally able to celebrate (smaller guest count and all) there were only smiles from ear to ear on everyone present. It didn't even matter that an African dust storm showed up or some wedding day sprinkles, nothing clouded over their shine.

We got to work with an amazing team of vendors on their day as well! Celebrations Catering took care of all the rentals, dinner and dessert bar. The Plant Shoppe Florist created the stunning floral arrangements and arbor decorations. Genius Entertainment kept the dance floor full and rocking the whole evening. Sugar Refined provided their beautiful cake, and everything was set off in the gorgeous location of C Bar Ranch

I also can't say enough about the talented artists that captured their day - CWP Photography and Heart Happy Films. Having true professionals for your photography and videography are SO, SO important. Just take a look at this unbelievable wedding film! 

Megan's dad's toast gets me all teary every time I watch it. I just adore how Heart Happy Films was able to expertly capture all the emotion and fun their day held. Walking through the memories of their wedding while I watched had me grinning like crazy and wiping tears all at the same time!

Stephanie & Justin's Enchanted Wedding on the Ichetuckne River

Stephanie's childhood family home was the perfect setting for her and Justin's wedding day. Right off the Ichetuckne River in Florida, their Enchanted Forest theme just oozed out of every nook and cranny in such a beautiful location.

There's this long, dreamy dock out to the river behind the house where Stephanie & Justin shared their first look together. Are you planning to do a first look for your day? We at MasterPiece are big fans! They slow your day down and let you focus on just each other for a bit before all your guests arrive and things get busy. Plus, by having that first special moment, you're able to spend the rest of your wedding day at each other's sides. We can't say enough about how meaningful and wonderful they can be!

Because of all things Covid 19, Stephanie & Justin actually got to have the small and intimate celebration they had always imagined. Social distancing was a must, so everything was held outside at safe distances for their small group of special guests. They even offered special favors that were customized masks and hand sanitizers. I LOVED making these custom chalkboards for them too!

Their ceremony was held under a tent by PRE Events, made all the more magical and enchanted by The Plant Shoppe Florist. Can you believe that ceremony log backdrop?! I'm convinced that fairies moved in for the weekend festivities and to celebrate along with them. Their dog, Pumba, was the perfect ring-doggie too!

Disney and Marvel share a special place in their hearts and in their relationship. Stephanie's talented sister created this epic guestbook and stickers for them. They even used an image of the guestbook for their invitations!

How dreamy were these sunset images by KiKi Creates Photography? I was swooning while I helped carry around Stephanie's dress!

Dinner and dancing were held under their covered patio, turned into an enchanted glen by The Plant Shoppe Florist.  I was excited to create the custom chalkboards for their tables.

Oh, their day couldn't have been more magical! I don't think I'll ever forget how pretty it all came together, or how much I adored getting to work with such an amazing couple. Congratulations Stephanie & Justin!!
