Rustic Autumn Inspired Cross Creek Ranch Wedding - Kalee & Jacob

Kalee and Jacob’s Cross Creek Ranch wedding was a fall wonderland. The flowers and rustic autumn vibes made their wedding warm and loving, not that Kalee and Jacob need any help in that department. Their love for each other was in the air for everyone to feel.

Kalee and Jacob's story begins when they met in high school. They stayed friends after high school and their friendship grew into more around the age of 22. Now they will walk down the aisle to be more than just friends forever. On their big day they wanted everyone to feel the love, spread the love, and of course, enjoy every moment. 

This Cross Creek Ranch wedding was a destination wedding! Kalee and Jacob traveled from North Carolina to Cross Creek Ranch in Dover, Florida. It wasn't just Kalee and Jacob traveling, their family and friends traveled from all over the US. From New York to Texas to South Carolina! It was inevitably an emotional day for everyone. After all the getting ready fun in the French Country Inn at Cross Creek Ranch, Kalee had her first look with her dad. He tried to hold back the tears, but could not after he saw Kalee. Her dress flowed elegantly with beautiful lace three quarter sleeves. 

During the ceremony Jacob couldn't hold back his tears either when he saw his bride walk down the aisle. His reaction was one of the best I've ever witnessed. He had to remove his glasses to wipe away the tears. It was amazing.

The love and emotions carried through to their reception. Crystal geodes, peroalized stone place cards, and pictures of Kalee and Jacob were displayed. Their colors were a combination of wine, mauve, and ivory with wooden accents and lots of greenery. Everyone was on the dance floor almost the whole time. SUCH A BLAST! Smaller weddings sometimes don't have a busy dance floor, but theirs sure did!
