Lakeside Ranches is a little over an hour north of us in Inverness, Florida. The venue is set on literally hundreds of acres featuring horses, cattle, beautiful trees and a massive lake. With multiple areas for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, Jessica and Travis fell in love the moment they set foot on the property. There is also this stunning teal gate that she knew she needed photos with as her décor had teal incorporated. It was meant to be.
Jessica and Travis booked us about two years in advance – YAY for being ahead of the game and booking early! They also got married on the busiest wedding day of 2020 (10.10) so that was an even better idea to secure us ahead of time as vendors were a huge priority to them. We have known Jessica for quite some time! We used to hang out together in our younger days at the local watering hole, get our line dance on and enjoy being young and free. So, when we met Travis for the first time we knew that he was the perfect match for her. What we also knew was that their wedding day would be E P I C. And let us tell you, not only was it epic it was executed beyond what we imagined – insert major LOL here.
To say that they have a fun group of friends is an understatement. Travis was surprised during first look and greeted by of one of his groomsmen dressed in full bride attire – photos below of how that all played out! Oh, and their “flower girl” stole the show. He walked down the aisle tossing petals like a pro, to Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus. I kid you not, it was hysterical! People were crying with laughter. Parent dances were every bit emotional – Brandon actually captured me crying behind the camera this time. And the night wound down with some keg stands. Yep you read that right. KEG STANDS. I mean hello. What kind of barn wedding are you having if that doesn’t happen – haha. Last but not least you know that Jessica and Travis left for the night in style surrounded by their nearest and dearest with a sparkler exit.
The day was picture perfect and we are so honored they chose us to be the ones there to capture it all. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Parnell!
