Catie & Robert’s Wedding at Cross Creek Ranch – Captured by Whitney

Catie and Robert got married at the lovely Cross Creek Ranch in Tampa, Florida. It was the perfect day for an outdoor wedding and the couple enjoyed every minute of it. We wish nothing but love and happiness to these two!

The Proposal

Rob proposed on New Years Eve 2020 on the Tampa Bay Riverwalk. He chose this day because New Years Eve 2017 was the day he told Catie he loved her for the first time and the Riverwalk was their first date. He coordinated with Catie’s best friend (and now maid of honor) Lynia to come to town to throw her off and to take pictures. They had dinner plans for that night at Armature Works so they got drinks with Lynia and decided to walk down the Riverwalk away from the bigger crowd at Armature. They stopped at a location next to a park to take photos before sunset. There were boats along the river so Rob said “look at that boat” and Catie turned around and that’s when he got on one knee. When she turned back around her first response was “What the F?, Really? Are you sure?” because she was so caught off guard. Of course after came the yes!

Wedding Day Vision
Catie and Rob had their ceremony outside in the forest. They envisioned their wedding to be romantic and whimsical. The color palette included sage green, navy, and champagne. It had a garden party theme with mismatched plates and china, bright colored wildflowers and a lot of greenery.
