Fall wedding at Cypress M Ranch
October 9th is an important date for Ashlee and Nick. It is their dating anniversary, so it held a lot of sentimental value to them. They decided to get married on October 9th so it will be their forever anniversary.
When Hurricane Ian came towards Florida there was a lot of uncertainty in the aftermath. Did their venue survive? Will their loved ones be in a position to attend the wedding?
Miraculously, their venue at Cypress M Ranch was untouched!
Ashlee got ready in the bridal suite on the ranch. She wore a beautiful vintage inspired dress. It was so perfect for her!
The ceremony was held behind the barn. Their friends and family enjoyed the ceremony. Their vows included sweet, playful jokes....but most importantly their vow to commit themselves to each other for the rest of their lives.
The reception took place in barn. They enjoyed a first dance together followed by the traditional father + daughter and mother + son dances....then a surprise dance between Ashlee and her brother.
The wedding cake looked like a log with their initials carved in..so creative! The couple enjoyed the rest of their night with their friends and family.
