This wedding was marsala, gold and floral perfection topped off with the sweetest couple and funnest wedding party! I had been looking forward to Ashley and Evan's wedding for a long time! Ever since their engagement session at Wild Iris Coffee Shop, I knew these two were going to have an amazing wedding. They have an effortless love that makes photographing them a blast!
When October 22nd finally arrived I was super excited because Ashley had been texting me photos of her meticulously picked out details for weeks. The woman has amazing taste and impeccable style! She brought it together in a way that was truly breathtaking! I adore most that Ashley and Evan stuck by their love of the environment and took that into consideration throughout their planning. From the plates that were compostable, to the wedding favor cups and glasses which were able to be recycled, to the decor details that could be re-purposed in their home.
These two may have had a love for the environment but their love for those in their lives surpassed all of that. I witnessed a beautiful selfless act by Ashley. One of her bridesmaids (who I had the honor of photographing a year ago) didn't get to have her first dance as originally planned at her outdoor wedding due to a torrential downpour. Ashley stopped her reception, hopped on the microphone and with everyone gathered around the dance floor, gave her friends Sam and Jake the first dance they never had! Are you teary eyed just reading that? I know we all were!
Mr and Mrs Shaw, may you have a lifetime of adventures and endless love! You deserve it!
