Tampa Bay newlyweds Brittany and Jarrod started dating after meeting through mutual friends at college in Gainesville and were engaged three years later. “Jarrod proposed to me under my favorite pier in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, in front of my whole family. It was the happiest moment of my life,” Brittany reminisced.
The couple wanted a shabby-chic southern wedding and chose Dade City wedding venue Barrington Hill Farm. “When we first started the planning process, Jarrod and I agreed on a few things. One was that we wanted a venue with natural beauty, where we wouldn't need to embellish it to make it beautiful. We both love farms and the outdoors, so we knew we wanted to be wed under a large oak tree. The plantation style home was the perfect backdrop for the outdoor dance floor and cocktails,” the bride explained.
Keeping with the theme of a country Tampa Bay wedding, Brittany and Jarrod chose Dade City wedding caterer Hungry Harry's Family Bar-B-Que to fill their guests' bellies. “Too many wedding have freezer burned plated meals, and we wanted a down home bar-b-que feel, which Hungry Harry's executed perfectly,” Brittany said. ” [They] went above the call of duty to put out any fires the day of the wedding and helping all of our vendors with anything they needed. The owner, Chad, stayed on-site the whole evening to ensure that Jarrod and I had everything we needed.”
To capture their big day, the pair hired Dade City wedding photographer CV Fuller Photography. I have to say that my photographer, CV Fuller Photography, really went above and beyond the call of duty. Even helping with ideas and inspiration far outside the photography realm,” Brittany said.
Jarrod and I are truly best friends. We spend a lot of time in the outdoors; hunting, fishing, and going on the boat. Our wedding was the perfect representation of our life together. – The Bride
