Photos by Karen and Jerry Favorite | Plantation Oaks Farms Wedding Photographer + Videographer
What a spectacular wedding event! It was such an honor to be Ashley and Brian’s Plantation Oaks Farms wedding photographer in Callahan, Florida this past spring.
Beautiful, Country Wedding
Ashley and Bryan Valentine had a super sweet spring wedding. Being typical Florida, the weather was unpredictable and showered the happy couple with some rain, some sunshine and even a rainbow. The bride and groom had the best spirits and didn’t let the rain dampen their special day. It was truly a dream wedding, with the rustic farm feel they wanted.
It’s all in the glorious details…
…blue suede shoes, diamonds + rings, stunning flowers, beautiful bouquets, country decor, dynamite wedding gown, and lots of smiles!
Most important is love…
Above all else, you can tell Bryan and Ashley have true friendship and love that will last forever. Their first touch was sweet and moving as they read notes they had written to each other. They have an amazing support of great family and friends that came together on this special day. God was listening too and the rain clouds parted long enough for the lovely outdoor ceremony under the large oak trees with hanging Spanish moss and green horse pastures in the background.
We did a lot of dashing in and outside for pictures, but it was totally worth it! Notice the wet, glistening walkway… the rain added an extra little sparkle, shine and reflection we love in photos.
Many wonderful elements at the reception made it so unique. Like their personalized “Ashley + Bryan Valentine” light display projection with wedding date and custom doggie bags to take home (a gift to guests furry friends). The spring decor and flowers were breathtaking. Soft mint green and pinks were the perfect balance to the rustic wood barn.
Fun reception with lots of music, dancing and even a special choreographed bridal party dance that was amazing. The colorful up-lighting and glow sticks added an extra festive flair through the celebration to the romantic last dance.

“I love Karen and Jerry! They are so sweet and truly care about capturing your memories! They have been the photographer for numerous friends and my sister’s wedding and have never disappointed. I had zero hesitation selecting them to photograph our wedding day! Very flexible as out wedding day rapidly changed with rain. I love that you never really hear or see them during the reception. They weren’t barking out orders or pulling us away from our reception. They allowed us to have a good time and still get fantastic shots! Very reliable and you will feel comfortable with them 🙂 Great people!!!!!!!!!!!” – Ashley Valentine | Review from WeddingWire
