Moody Winter Wonderland-Inspired Wedding | Cross Creek Ranch

We wanted something partially outdoors that had an ethereal, woodsy feel. I almost wanted to feel like we weren't in Florida. We also wanted something all-inclusive because as much as I loved the planning process, I didn't want the loads of stress that come with it.

We chose Cross Creek Ranch because of how beautiful the venue was, and they could also handle the number of people we needed without price gouging. We had a few places lined up that we wanted to tour, but after visiting Cross Creek Ranch, we got maybe two blocks away, and I really couldn't leave without booking. They truly went above and beyond anything we could have expected.

Elegant White and Greenery Outdoor Wedding | Cross Creek Ranch

We planned our wedding in a very quick timeframe due to family medical circumstances.

We really were looking for an all-inclusive venue, and Cross Creek Ranch met the necessities. They went absolutely beyond and were incredible. Also, they were extremely flexible and made our very short wedding planning process easy and enjoyable. We would recommend them 10 times over.

Timeless Black and White Modern Wedding | Cross Creek Ranch

We chose Cross Creek Ranch entirely based on the enchanted forest ceremony location; it truly is magical! The ceremony space does a great job of making you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere while still actually being close to town.

Birds flying overhead, chirping, and wind gusts, it really feels like a Disney movie. This location is truly what we love most about Cross Creek, in addition to the entire property really feeling like it is in the middle of the woods.

To us, the most important element of our big day was the ceremony location. The enchanted forest was what we loved most about the venue, in addition to the entire property feeling like it is in the middle of the woods and very tranquil. Although you typically don't spend a lot of time at the venue, it is the first wow factor for your guests and each other. I will never forget the time spent holding Cole's hand up there.

Cross Creek Ranch‘s team does a great job of maintaining the grounds. We chose an all-inclusive venue because I like the idea of choosing vendors and decor off of a vetted list rather than starting from scratch.
