This classic outdoor evening wedding is perfect, we do have one little suggestion though... perhaps add some navy to this burgundy garden wedding at Cross Creek Ranch. Oh wait, is that the groom is in his dress blues? Do pardon us, there does appear to be just the right amount of Navy at this lovely day.

A Sweet Day For A Sweet CoupleFrom Cross Creek Ranch: Colleen and Cody traveled across country from California to tie the knot at The French Country Inn in Dover, Florida. Their two sweet pups also made the trip so they could be apart of their wedding day and their beautiful white German Shepard, Tegan, was the ring bearer!
Cody looked handsome in his Navy Dress Blues standing next to his stunning bride, Colleen, in her strapless fairy-tale gown. The couple added a twist to their sand unity ceremony by mixing sand from her home in Florida with sand from their current home in California.
