I was unfamiliar with the fact that Florida has some fabulous Ranches! Ashley & Matt wanted there 350 guest wedding to be held on the families private weekend oasis, their Ranch . The Ranch was located outside of "America's sweetest City", Clewiston. The tented affair was one of my favorite off premise events due to the fact that this Ranch was so BEAUTIFUL! The wedding was a formal affair with a twist of a ranch "theme". The guests were greeted w/ fresh lemonade from the lemonade stand and warm biscuits upon their arrival pre-ceremony.
The ceremony isle was framed by lush green arches and white rose petals. Balls of flowers hung from sheppard's hooks and large banyan trees shaded the guests from the sunny day. The tent was a clear span tent so that guests were able to see through the top and the starry sky was worth a million bucks! The gorgeous ivory stain fabric , balls of fresh flowers and crystal chandeliers that so elegantly hung from the tent top simply finished off the perfect evenings view. I have to admit, my favorite part of the culinary experience was the dessert station. All of the desserts were served as small individual treats. There were warm mugs of peach cobbler, pecan pies , smores, white chocolate bread pudding, and mini apple pies topped with cinnamon ice cream to just mention a few.The band had the party goers dancing all night long and those whom were not weak hearted joined the after party with the DJ spinning tunes into the early morning hours. This will be a party to remember!
