Jennifer and Sean have an elegant woodland themed Cross Creek Ranch wedding in Tampa with their ceremony in the enchanted forest.

When I met with these two, I noticed Jennifer’s sparkling blue eyes and Sean’s amazing smile. With the last name of O’Malley, I was sure Jennifer chose St. Patrick’s Day due to her heritage. They wanted to have a Cross Creek Ranch wedding in the enchanted forest and she said it was the only date left in March and COINCIDENTALLY happened to be St. Patrick’s Day. This not only matched her family name, but also her elegant woodland theme with lost of greenery.

How they met:

Sean and I met on New Year’s Eve 2011 at a mutual friend’s house. His college buddy married a girl with whom I went to high school; they had a NYE party in my home town (where they now reside), and we met at that party. Allegedly, it was a setup, but I didn’t know about it! We’ve been together ever since.

Things that stick out in my memory about this wedding:

My favorite reception set up at Cross Creek thus far (I’ve done quite a few weddings there), Jennifer’s unique dress that fit her like a glove, Sean’s custom suit from Bespoke (groom’s THIS is how it’s done!), and Sean’s best man Brandon’s toast. Definitely one of my top 3 most hilarious speeches I’ve heard at weddings. They wanted guests to remember that “they danced their ass off” and indeed, as you will see below, THEY DID! Sean is one mean line dancer!

I had no doubt in my mind that this would turn out to be one of my favorite weddings. Not only is Jennifer beyond organized, they also chose a bad ass vendor team with her dad as the officiant. It was so freaking special and emotional! Nancy with Cross Creek was very helpful as coordinator, Lasting Luxe did amazingly with hair and makeup, Alessi Bakery did the cake, Alta Fluera provided beautiful flowers, Hungry Harry’s killed the BBQ (literally, ha!), invitations are from Minted and save-the-dates from Mooseberry (Etsy shop). Jennifer’s dress is Allure Couture from Something Blue Bridal Boutique and Sean’s custom suit is from Bespoke & Co.
