Love Is For Everyone

A Statement on Diversity

We at Cross Creek Ranch believe that everyone should have the right to marry and have their love celebrated. Our couples, employees, and colleagues can expect to be affirmed, included, and celebrated, no matter their gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, size, socioeconomic status, education, physical and mental ability, and professional or life experience. We are an anti-racist, LGBTQ+ inclusive company committed to diversity and inclusion, and are committed to growing through active dialogue, diverse and inclusive hiring practices and partnerships, education and feedback.

Bonnie McSharry

CROSS CREEK RANCH OWNER & FOUNDER

Bonnie fell in love with weddings at the age of five, “marrying” her first love, neighbor Donny Pruess in a splendid Tom Thumb ceremony.

Married “for real” in 1994 to the love of her life Sean McSharry (four months after meeting!), Bonnie turned her passion for wedding design into her profession.

In 2000, Bonnie and Sean bought Cross Creek Ranch as the ideal place to share their zeal for entertaining.

“With one friend’s 50th birthday party and our best man’s wedding hosted here, one thing led to another, creating this wonderful wedding venue.”

In 2006, Bonnie left her award-winning interior design business to run Cross Creek Ranch full time. Just look at anything Bonnie touches and you’ll see her unique vision and attention to detail in creating something beautiful.

Sean McSharry

Sean McSharry

CROSS CREEK RANCH OWNER & FOUNDER

Born and raised in Dorchester, MA, Sean McSharry is a longtime “anything-Boston” fan. Serving in the Navy for nine years, Sean is the proud father of two children, Tisha and Michael. He’s an avid reader and sports fan, even willing to support local teams as long as they’re not competing against the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins or Celtics. Sean also gives of his time and talent as a Guardian Ad Litem and a Guardian trainer for Hillsborough County.

Even though Cross Creek Ranch is primarily Bonnie’s dream, Sean is by her side as a constant support to operations. It must be true love because as Sean says, “I’m still here, aren’t I?”

Joan Arata

Bonnie's Mother

Joan keeps an eye on things from the front porch of her adorable yellow cottage at the front of Cross Creek Ranch. She’s often found in the courtyard, giving her signature warm welcome to wedding guests.

Joan is also mother to son David, grandmother to four and great-grandmother to two…so far, as she likes to say. She’s an avid reader and fan of the Bucs and Rays. Proud of her daughter and son-in-law, Joan loves living at the Ranch.
