Kristin and Ryan’s July Morning Wedding at C Bar Ranch
Kristin and Ryan met during their first semester at the UF College of Education and the two of them hit it off. They both knew that they had found their match. While I was editing these pictures one of my kids walked up to my desk and said that they recognized Ryan. He had been an intern in their class room two years before!! These two soulmates decided tie the knot over the summer at C Bar Ranch with their friends and family. They chose a morning wedding which was a perfect choice to beat the hot, muggy, summers of Florida.
When we first arrived, the sun was still coming up through the mossy oak trees and the steam was lifting off the lake at this beautiful country venue. We could hear laughter coming from the bridal suite and couldn’t wait to get in and get started with all of Kristin’s details. As I finished those up we stole Ryan and his boys to get their formals finished before guest arrived. I asked if he was nervous and he replied with how excited he was. Little did we know how much he would show his emotion and pure love for Kristin as she walked down the aisle. Every person in the crowd was tearing up watching Ryan as he waited for his bride. That moment still gives me goose bumps when I think about it. There was no denying the pure love that he has for his wife!
After the ceremony
Kristin had the biggest smile on her face all day and Ryan catered to her with the upmost love and affection. We made our way out into the field for some portraits while they walked hand and hand. Neither of them taking their eyes off each other, all while laughing and holding hands the entire time. Our next stop was the dock by the pond where they dance, dipped and laughed some more! Next, we made our way inside for some dancing and cake. Finally, to end the event, Kristin and Ryan walked down the brick sidewalk while their guest threw rose petals in the air. Ryan help Kristin climb up into his big truck and then they sped off as everyone cheered!
It was one of the sweetest ceremonies that I have ever witnessed. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your C Bar Ranch Wedding!!
