Maria and Chad were looking for a venue that would ensure they could host their families and friends for an entire weekend-long celebration. Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, in Maria's hometown, fit the bill perfectly. Family and friends could rent townhomes and homes in this gated community and be close to all the weekend festivities.
Family and friends started to arrive on Friday while the gatherings began. Late nights, laughing, and just catching up were on the agenda for this start of the weekend celebration. On Saturday, most of the family enjoyed time at the pool and golfing, while we prepared for the rehearsal dinner and welcome cocktail reception. The wedding was held on Sunday at the Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club. The ceremony on the front lawn, made for a grand entrance of Maria and her father, Andy to Chad and all the family and friends. Cocktail hour was held in the entire lobby area of the clubhouse with signature cocktails and amazing hors d'oeuvre. The grand ballroom held the reception portion of our evening and was decorated so elegantly. Maria wanted to mix the tables with both longs and rounds to ensure that we could fit her guest list of 170+ in one room. These tables held both long greenery garlands, baby's breath garlands, elevated white and toffee rose arrangements, and an abundance of candles. The cake was not a high priority for Chad or Maria, so they opted for a grand dessert station and Chef Alabaugh created just that. When dinner was over, everyone moved out onto the terrace for the most epic dance party that I have witnessed to date. Curate Entertainment and DJ Malike kept everyone on the dance floor the entire time.
