Allison and Jake knew that they wanted their wedding to be a meaningful one. Beyond tradition, they wanted the day to embrace the home they both knew so well and the family and friends who meant the most to them in the world. And so they vowed their love for another in the church Allison had attended her whole life, the same church where her parents and grandparents exchanged their vows as well. It was a gorgeous January day in Lakeland, Florida, when the bride walked down the aisle to the love of her life. She wore an elegant ball gown of ivory taffeta by Watters with a pleated sweetheart bodice and thirty precious buttons down the back. A chapel-length veil completed the look, while her bridesmaids wowed as well in floor-length chiffon dresses by Dessy. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests retreated to the Rocking H Ranch where they enjoyed a delectable home-cooked meal alongside a beautiful wedding cake by It’s a Piece of Cake by Maggi. Graingertainment provided flawless energy to the celebration, coaxing all ages to the dance floor for a night of love and revelry. Enjoy these photos by Rebecca Read Photography!
