Classic Plantation Wedding in Ocala Florida

Abigail and Travis couldn’t hide their excitement if they tried. This wedding was all together beautiful. Abigail was a beautiful bride wearing the biggest smile and often found herself with tears of joy as she awaited meeting her love at the end of the aisle. Every detail mattered and throughout the day things just fell into the perfect place. These two deserve a lifetime of happiness and I am so honored that I was able to capture their sweetest moments. Below are the wonderful  vendors who helped make it happen!
