On March 28th, 2015, Laurie and Zack had an outdoor ceremony underneath the oak tree and reception followed inside the rustic barn, The Carriage House Stable. Laurie shared with us about their wedding day and I figured I would share it with you all. 🙂
“We really wanted our wedding to be laid-back, fun, and a real reflection of who we are. Having both grown up in Florida, we knew we wanted to get married there, and Cross Creek Ranch was an absolutely beautiful venue. We only had about 90 guests, just close friends and family. From one of Zack’s best friends officiating the ceremony, to the homemade cat drink stirrers at the bar, to my Jeffrey Campbell Lita wedding shoes, and Miami Heat players as table markers, it was a perfectly unique and personal celebration of us.
My favorite parts of the wedding were our vows that we wrote ourselves, and the speeches by the maid of honor and best man… For the same reasons. Maybe I’m biased, but they were all some of the best I’ve heard – funny, sentimental, and honest. And also having our cardboard stand ups of our 2 cats and our bearded dragon wearing tuxedos at the entrance. Everyone knows Zack and I are total cat ladies, and how obsessed we are with our pets, so it was awesome having them there too!”
