Well, you probably already know… that Cross Creek Ranch is one of my favorite venues but you didn’t know that this was one of my favorite weddings. Mark and Christina finally decided to “tie the knot” literally.. After being together for many years. They have a beautiful family and choose a beautiful venue to make it “official”. The ceremony was laid back and fun! The officiant encouraged the guests to participate in clapping, stomping, and cheering. The guests even had a few one-liners to contribute too. The bride arrived in a horse-drawn carriage. She was radiant! It was a magical entrance. (The harp really made it perfect if I do say so myself.. lol). The couple did the tying of knot, though I don’t think the knot actually turned out the way it was supposed to. These are the things they’ll remember and laugh about for years to come. They also did a very beautiful “vase ceremony”. I had never seen this before. The best man and maid of honor both carried a rose into the ceremony. During the ceremony, the bride and groom exchanged these roses in special vases. The vases then go home and are there to show each other their love for one another when words aren’t enough (even when they are trying to say “I’m sorry”) I thought this was so special! My favorite part was when the flower girl wanted to play my “guitar”. She was just the CUTEST thing ever. I’m so lucky to be a part of such a special day for this family. Thank you Christina and Mark for including me! I wish the bride and groom and their family a lifetime of love and happiness! ~xoxo Kristen
