This rustic ranch wedding venue provided a stunning backdrop for this real wedding in Apopka, FL. Certainly Club Lake Plantation and its lush landscape and venue options are wonderful just as it is. However, Brittney and Michael wanted to add their personality into their wedding. For instance, fun glasses, silly photos and socks to name a few.
Brittney and Michael spent the morning with their I DO Crews. Without a doubt the bride and her bridesmaids celebrated the day in true style. Starting with monogramed matching outfits. Paired with love shades and of course champagne. Once it was time to get wedding ready, they slipped into their beautiful green gowns.
Similarly, Michael and the gents sported custom suits. In fact, each groomsmen personalized the lining of their suit. Adding to the style of this fun wedding was the groomsmen’s socks.
Club Lake Plantation is the epitome of rustic ranch wedding venues. The property has two lakes and is surrounded by live oaks and beautiful landscape. Further the outdoor ceremony space provides an unforgettable setting for your perfect wedding day.
Before the ceremony Brittney and Michael did a first look with the lush landscape as the backdrop. Following that, Brittney entered the ceremony through a set of barn doors.
Brittney and Michael added their personal touches to the ceremony in a variety of ways. Starting with the gorgeous white, pink and green florals on the arch. And we absolutely must show off the most amazing flower guy ever! Who may, or may not, have also passed out beer as he proceeded down the aisle. Coupled with the surprise of the best wedding pet attendants ever, who made quite an entrance of their own. Admittedly one of our favorite wedding ceremonies to date.
We always say, “Do your wedding your way.” Unquestionably, Brittney and Michael have a great group of friends that helped them celebrate in a uniquely personal way. This dream wedding day was relaxed, fun and guest-focused. All the while being true to the new Mr. and Mrs. personalities.
For example, the reception was filled with dancing, good times and a celebration of the newly married couple. Ending in a sparkler exit.

Nature sets the backdrop for your wedding. Florida is uniquely diversified in the types backdrops available. With 1,350 miles of coastline, 3,000 lakes, big cities, amusement parks, rolling hills, swamp and flat lands, the possibilities are endless. However, we can’t forget that two-fifths of Florida’s land is considered farmland, and much of that being pasture. For example, take Lovelock Ranch. This family owned, working cattle farm is on Carlton Lake, just 30 minutes from Tampa. It boasts a 5,000+ square foot barn with a modern Western aesthetic perfect for cocktail hour and reception. In addition, it has dreamy fields, cypress trees and a tee pee constructed of repurposed pine. This styled shoot is dripping with romantic charm, fall florals and an unexpected guest.
Blooming Flowers and Art created beautiful floral bridal hats. They are not only unique, but give that added flair of fall beauty. Similarly, they created a floral hoop instead of a traditional wedding bouquet style. As a result, these florals create a statement that represents you as the one-of-a-kind bride. Speak with your florist about creative ways to incorporate your personal style and uniqueness into your special day.
Surprise your wedding guests with a visit from an unexpected attendee. Fairytale Petcare are the handlers for this special guest – a llama. That’s right, a llama made an appearance and the cuteness is on overload. Animal guests are trending at weddings, from llama’s, to sloths to beverage burrows. Many of these animals are rescues and they love the attention. Furthermore, they are adorable in your wedding photos.
Charcuterie boards and coffee – you can’t go wrong. Make your wedding extra special by serving your guests some of your favorite things. First, consider pleasing their pallets with a variety of cheeses, fruits and crackers at cocktail hour. These days you can even order individual charcuterie boxes for each guest. Second, choose food that represents you as a couple. Merge your favorite foods into a smorgasbord of courses so you each get something you enjoy. Lastly, don’t forget the dessert and coffee. This 3 tier cake by Tampa Bay Cake Company is sure to wow your guests. Most importantly, everything is made better with specialty coffee in to go cups.
The stunning chandeliers inside the barn and the beautiful barn doors set a gorgeous backdrop for photos. Almost as beautiful as the sunset over the fields with your new spouse and a llama. Whatever type of Florida wedding venue you choose, make it uniquely you. Work with each of your wedding professionals to tell your love story the way you want it told.

Shelby & Treavor knew as soon as they stepped foot on Bakers Ranch that they had found their dream venue. They chose to use this customizable space for the perfect rustic ranch romance themed event.
Teala and Lisa, the onsite wedding coordinators at Bakers Ranch were able to take this couple’s theme and truly bring it to life. Of course, weddings are always romantic. But this ranch brings it to a whole new level.
As we all know, outside ceremonies can be hit-or-miss during certain times of the year in Central Florida. Although it turned out to be a gloomy day weather wise, the rain held off through the entire ceremony.
“Saying “I do” in front of all of our closest friends and family was truly my favorite part of our wedding day,” said Shelby.
The beautiful wedding images taken by Kristen Marie Photography portrayed this day not as gloomy, but as full of light. It’s a great example of what a professional photographer can do in a state with unpredictable weather.
Shelby was honored to wear a family heirloom on their special day that belonged to Treavor’s mother. It had been almost ten years since since she passed. And being able to wear this item reminded them both that she was watching over them and blessing their union.
