Elegant Garden Wedding | Carriage House Stable | 100 Guests
We are obsessed with Danielle and Robby’s Elegant Garden Wedding. Every detail was thoroughly thought out, and was a direct reflection of the couple and what they love! We meshed together our professional insight, with Danielle’s decor inspiration to create a timeless, elegant garden vibe. Elements of sage green and daisies filled the Carriage House Stable, but wasn’t complete without a late night snack featuring Taco Bell! As always, D + R gave us an inside look into their inspiration, vision, and overall personal style for their unforgettable event captured by K&K Photography.

What drew you to Cross Creek Ranch? What were the deciding factors that led to booking your day with us?
I always dreamed of having an outdoor garden wedding! We toured 10 other venues and none of them compared to what Cross Creek Ranch was able to provide. My Husband and I live in Texas so having an All inclusive venue made planning the wedding such an easy experience. The grounds were so beautiful we instantly fell in love! Being able to choose from three different ceremony sites was so nice, having both a bridal and groom space to get ready on property was very convenient, neither one of us wanted to get ready at the hotel and accidentally see each other, and having the design team there to walk you through every step was so amazing.
What was your inspiration for your wedding style?
Elegant Garden Wedding
What was your inspiration for the colors you picked out?
We wanted colors that would last forever and never go out of style. White, green, cream, and gold just added the elegant factor we were looking for.
How did you feel about your design meeting?
The design meeting was so incredible, I created a powerpoint with my inspiration and Lisa and the team delivered exactly what I was envisioning. They did a PERFECT job, it was a dream!
What were some of your must-haves for your wedding day?
Daisies were an absolute must, they are my favorite flower and they had to be incorporated.
How did you make the day feel personal to you both?
We had certain aspects that we wanted at our wedding that are special to us, we love oysters and we had an oyster bar during cocktail hour that all of our guests very much enjoyed (there were none left). We both have grandparents that have passed and we placed a single Daisy on a chair in the front row to honor their presence.
What was your inspiration behind your wedding attire? What about your wedding party attire?
My dress needed to fit the venue and the Elegant Garden theme for the wedding. I always dreamed of what my wedding dress would look like. I tried on all of the styles and when my dress came into the room at the White Magnolia in Tampa I knew it was the one, just like when I met my husband, when you know you know. The wedding dress designer was Lillian West.
My husband always envisioned himself in a blue suit, so I needed to find a bridesmaid color that would compliment the blue. I did a lot of research to find a company that would give my bridesmaids multiple dress styles and price options. I found Azazie and it was perfect, it had a lot of options of colors and styles, and I fell in love with the color eucalyptus. It complimented all of my bridesmaids skin tone and went so beautifully with the groomsmens suits.
Finding my husbands and groomsmens suit colors was one of the quickest decisions we made, we found them at Men’s Wearhouse and it was so simple for the groomsmen to rent their tuxes since they are located almost everywhere.
Where did you go to customize your wedding stationery?
We did all of our stationary through Minted.
What was your favorite moment of the day?
Bride- Walking down the aisle and seeing his reaction. Groom- marrying his best friend
What helped inspire you as you were planning your wedding?
I used all the social media sites to help find some inspiration, Etsy, Pinterest and TikTok. I just put a little spin on what I saw and made it my own.
Is there anything else you would like to mention about your wedding day?
Our reception was so much fun, I could not get off the dancefloor. I loved how everything looked so beautiful, the design team really made my vision come to life. Our hair and makeup artist from Adore Bridal did such an amazing job, they made me feel like a fairytale princess, and we got so many compliments of hair and makeup on all the ladies! Also, when I saw my wedding bouquet for the first time I cried, it was absolutely perfect, just what I had imagined. Alta did an amazing job and no wonder she is the florist for Cross Creek Ranch.
