Wedding at Cross Creek Ranch
Wedding Cross Creek Ranch from Celebrations of Tampa Bay on Vimeo.
I love video because it helps you to appreciate life. It captures the real moments and helps us to realize how precious life is. This was evident on this wedding of Patrick & Brittnee at Cross Creek Ranch. We happened to catch a real moment of Patrick experiencing the raw emotion of recently losing his father, yet feeling the joy of uniting with Brittnee whom he obviously loved very much. Just love a groom who is not afraid to show emotion.
We used 2 DSLRS, a Traditional Video Camera, 2 Go Pros, and a Phantom 3 drone for this wedding. Many country venues have a door frame for the bridal party to walk through during the processional. We love to put a go pro on the back side of this door frame, it provides a unique view. We also put a Go Pro in the Oak Tree shooting down on the ceremony site.
This wedding was at the main ceremony site at Cross Creek Ranch under the big oak tree, which provides plenty of shade for all the guests. The property is about as clean and well manicured as a country wedding venue can be, and yet feel like you are out in the natural surroundings. A nice brick paved walkway from the entrance to the ceremony site as you see on the opening of this video. The dinner and dancing takes place in the Carriage House Stable which has a rustic, whimsical décor along with mini lights in the ceiling, that create a romantic atmosphere. The bonefire which you see at the end of this video is always a big hit with the guests. For more information on having a wedding at this venue see Cross Creek Ranch
The food is always delicious catered by Alessis Catering. They provide home made pies which set along side of the wedding cake.
The photographer was Erick Runyon, who was one of the best photographers I have worked with at this venue. He made good use of the short amount of time you sometimes get at Cross Creek Ranch.
