Travis and Stacey are a special couple! From the moment we met them, we knew they were such a perfect match and they complimented each other so well. We were so overjoyed when we booked them for both photo and video! Plus, Cross Creek Ranch??!! It's not news that we love this venue! They pay such good attention to detail and make it so easy for us to do our job. We caught some really sweet moments on there day, especially during the first look! Check out some of our favorite images and their video below.

What do you love most about him/her?

Stacey - I love Travis' personality, he's so funny and makes me laugh every single day! He's very sweet and supportive and always tries to make me happy. He's a great snuggler too! =)

Travis - I love Stacey's kind heart and passion for life!! She means the world to me and I don't know what I would do without her.

Why did you choose the date and/or time of year of your wedding?

We visited CCR ranch the year before on 2/19 and the weather was beautiful, so we hoped to have a day just like it and we were so lucky to have the best day ever!

What was the most memorable part of the wedding day for each of you?

Stacey - Hands down, the first look with Travis was my favorite part of the day. It felt like we were in our own little bubble and everyone and everything else just melted away when we saw each other for the first time. It was so special to have that time to hug and kiss and just be together right before the ceremony. It really was magical. 

Travis – Had to be the First look. It was awesome!!!! To have that first experience with each other in a private setting without everyone else was so special and meaningful. It took away all the nerves, helped us relax and get ready for the greatest day of our lives.

Do you have any advice for couples currently planning a wedding? 

1) Do a First Look!

2) Get a videographer - it's SO worth it! I got to see so many things I missed on our actual wedding day and I get to relive my favorite moments over and over again!

3) Things will stress you out and not go according to plan but don't freak out or give up and elope, believe me I thought about it. All the stress is so worth it, our wedding day was the BEST day of our life. You'll never again get a day that's full of so much love for you and your significant other!

"If possible, pick an all inclusive wedding location. It was so amazing to just show up and not have to worry about setting up or cleaning up. It made the whole day go so much smoother and less stressful! Make sure you drink a lot of water and eat the day of! I was so nervous that I could barely eat but I forced myself to eat and I'm so glad I did. You don't want to pass out during the ceremony!" - Stacey
