I love any opportunity I get to capture the beautiful moments of an Up The Creek Farms Wedding! Ashley and Sam are no exception!
The couple surrounded themselves with a fun group of bridesmaids, bridemens and groomsmen. Ashley gifted her bridesmaids with cute monogramed PFG button up shirts. We had a good time taking pictures on the porch of the property farmhouse. Her mom was lovingly by her side through out the day. Ashley lost her father when she was very young, but honored his memory by carrying a charm with his picture on her bouquet.
Ashley was radiant in in her lace corset gown. As an alumni of The University of Florida, she wore her school pride with gold sandals accented with alligators. Her mom and bridesmaids helped her dress with pearl earrings, necklace and bracelet.
Ashley and Sam choose to have their ceremony on the pavers underneath Up The Creek Farms beautiful trees. Fist pumping her bridesmen as she walked down the aisle was super hilarious. Later they moved to the boathouse patio for cocktail hour. During cocktail hour the guests were invited to play lawn games of corn hole and Giant Jenga provided by Crystal & Crates.
After taking newly married couples portraits the party moved inside the boathouse for the reception. Ashley and Sam danced their first dance to You are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne. The reception was decorated with navy and coral, because it was a happy medium between their school colors. Being that she is a Gator and he went to Auburn!
Creative Cakes by Dawn beautifully designed the three-tier cake accented with coral, white, and succulent blooms. Ashley was so excited to include a UF Gator on the side of the cake. Sam enjoyed a five-tier sweets stand. The top tier was a small cake decorated with Auburn University colors and logo.
I loved spending the day with Ashley and Sam as well as their amazing families and bridal party! Their country farm wedding was a perfect way to conclude my spring wedding season.
