Barrington Hill Farm Wedding – Brandi and Evan
From The Ganeys: When Brandi and Evan’s wedding day rolled around, so did the perfect fall weather. They got ready at Saddlebroook Resort in Wesley Chapel, where they started off the day by exchanging gifts and cards. Evan opened his new watch and Brandi opened a small box which contained with a beautiful ruby ring – her birthstone. As it turns out, the ring was her original engagement ring, but Evan had taken out the diamond and had it reset for a new engagement ring. He then purchased a ruby and had it reset in her initial engagement ring setting. He made it just right for his bride!
Brandi put her gown on with the help of her mother and maid of honor. Once they’d laced up the corset back, they helped Brandi into her fabulous, sparkly Betsey Johnson shoes. Their first look was the sweetest! They met at Barrington Hill under beautiful oak trees filled with Spanish moss. Everyone could tell how excited they were for their day to finally be here!
The two love birds said their vows under a large oak tree and a wooden arbor dripping in burgundy and pink florals. Wine barrels with floral pieces marked the beginning of the aisle, and fresh lemonade kept guests refreshed as they watched the ceremony unfold. After the ceremony, guests were welcomed to the main plantation at Barrington Hill. Brandi and Evan shared their first dance just as the sun set – the golden light poured around them. The rest of the evening flew by in a blur. All of the guests enjoyed delicious barbecue and a cookie jar favor station. The cake was absolutely wonderful! After some emotional toasts, guests hit the dance floor – hard! Brandi was serenaded by Evan’s fraternity brothers, and Brandi’s sorority sisters had a short candlelight ceremony. Their sendoff was absolutely epic. It started out with a sparkler exit down the Barrington Hill staircase, and then fireworks were shot off above the plantation. We can’t think of a better way to end a perfectly magical night!
How did Brandi and Evan meet?
It was finals week in 2007. Everyone was sitting in the courtyard between exams, cramming those last minute formulas into their heads. From across the lawn Brandi saw a sunbeam pouring down onto a guy. In that moment, she knew she had to meet him. She was sitting next to her best friend, leaned over and whispered, “Do you know that guy?” Luckily, her friend did know Evan. A few group get together’s later, Evan asked Brandi out and they have been together ever since. It really doesn’t get cuter than that!
