Tell us a little bit more about the deciding factors that led you to book your day with us.
When we first viewed Cross Creek on TheKnot, it was the exact vibe we were looking for, elegant feel, country setting and beautiful decor. Once we went to tour the venue in person, we were sold. We felt so comfortable and loved meeting the staff, they answered all of our questions and walked us through the planning process. The deciding factor, for us, was the all inclusive packages that Cross Creek offers. This allowed for us to actually enjoy wedding planning knowing that we had a team of experts helping every step of the way.
What was your inspiration for your wedding style?
Inspiration for our wedding style came from our love for the Fall season and colors. We wanted to mix the Fall vibes with a classic/country feel.
How did you feel about your design meeting?
The design meeting was one of our favorite parts. It’s one thing to build your dream wedding on your Pinterest board but to actually see it come to life is another. Our design meeting was so much fun. Picking out every detail was enjoyable and a stress free process. We were offered advice and tips which were much appreciated! Cross Creek offered so many options, we were able to have everything we were looking for.
What were some of your must-haves for your wedding day?
Must haves included delicious food, good drinks and music that would make you want to stay on the dance floor all night long. As far as coordination, we were keen on having wedding coordinators the day of in order to keep everything moving smoothly without taxing any friends or family.
How did you make the day feel personal to you?
We added a lot of personal touches to our wedding day and we are so happy we did because it really made our wedding feel intimate. We made table number signs that included pictures of us as kids at that age of the table number. We also included a cut out of our dog, Rover, at our welcome table and pictures of our family members who had passed but we still wanted there with us in spirit.
What was your inspiration behind your wedding attire and your wedding party attire?
Our inspiration for our wedding attire was we wanted to stay true to our everyday style. We both decided to wear sneakers for our wedding! Michaels suit was from Mens Wearhouse and my dress was from Wonderland Bridal in Margate (South Florida). Wedding party attire was also Mens Wearhouse and Azazie.
Where did you go to customize your wedding stationery?
All wedding stationery was done through Minted.
What was your favorite moment of the day?
Our favorite moment of the day was our first look. It was so emotional seeing each other for the first time and we loved every second of it. Once we saw each other, all the nerves seemed to have just gone away.
What helped inspire you as you were planning your wedding?
We were inspired by the Cross Creek atmosphere. The beautiful venue made it easy for us to create our simple, classic, elegant vibe at our wedding. The ceremony site was breathtaking and it was exactly what we were looking for.
Anything else you would like to mention about your wedding day?
We cannot say enough good things about the staff at Cross Creek. They kept the timing of our whole day on schedule and provided us with whatever we needed throughout the day. The set up staff did an amazing job and brought our design meeting to life. The bartenders did an amazing job, we got compliments all evening about the yummy drinks, the DJ had everyone on the dancefloor all night long. We had Cal Morris playing the violin, he was incredible and we received so many compliments. For our unity ceremony, we poured different colors glass into one with our parents and then had that glass blown into a heart. Cross Creek and all of our vendors gave us the wedding of our dreams and we will forever be grateful for them.
