A Winter Wonderland Wedding with Southern flair the at Barn at Cottonwood Ranch in Callahan, Florida


It was such an honor to be a part of Tori & Kevin's wedding day! Tori and I were actually sorority sisters at the University of North Florida so I was especially excited to get to be a part of a sister's wedding! Tori and Kevin were college sweethearts and their love for each other is easy to see! They were supposed to get married in April but had to postpone due to covid. They handled the change of plans with such grace and added beautiful details to change their spring wedding into an elegant winter wonderland! The Barn at Cottonwood Ranch has become one of my favorite venues for its classic southern elegance and ability to truly transform into the client's vision! Light blue and silver accents fit this December wedding perfectly and popped among the wood! Lighted garlands on the stairwell, candles galore, and beautiful florals designed by Lori Parker Floral Studios made the barn look like a fairytale! The couple's pet golden retriever Jax walked down the aisle with the Best Man and almost stole the show! The bride dazzled in an off the shoulder gown from Love, a Bridal Boutique. Guests enjoyed a traditional southern buffet for dinner followed by a four-tier cake from Jimbo's Catering. Chillula made sure the dance floor was never empty with their amazing energy and brought guests to the floor with Ring of Fire! Jay Dee Photography and Siberian Pictures Video were there to make sure all the memories and details were captured for the couple to remember! One of my favorite moments was when the bride iced the groom with a Smirnoff Ice during the garter toss. A wedding is not a wedding until someone gets iced in my opinion :)


It was so much fun to be a part of the start of Kevin & Tori's wedding day and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for them!
