To think where this couple and I started … their first meeting at Starbucks to their downtown engagement session downtown Culpeper to Turks and Caicos for Ashley’s brothers wedding to finally their very own wedding day … I cannot say enough how much fun this has been to get to know not just them but their family! I did not feel like I was there for them for the job, but as a guest and a friend. 🙂 I love their spirits and their hearts. So sweet, sincere, loving, joyful, lovers of God … nothing to not love about this couple!!! It was a joy to see all of the supportive family and friends surround this couple during their most important day of their lives! 🙂
Andrew and Ashley, thank you and your family for an AMAZING wedding day to witness/capture your special moments!!! You two have been such a pleasure to get to know through our journey together!! Loved every moment with you! 🙂 Best wishes through your new adventures as husband and wife!!! Enjoy the preview of your wedding day!!! xoxo
Special ring from previous generations
SURPRISE!!!! Andrew did not tell her that they were going to have a videographer for their wedding day! What a great gift Andrew!
Then… she opened up her first gift …
He handmade this bar from scratch. The corks are compiled from their favorite winery and it has their first dance title written on the front! AMAZING!
Then she opened up the tear jerker gift … a Bible with her new name engraved along with a beautifully written letter that got us ALL in tears!
All of those tears did not let this bride SHINE and smile during her prepping time though. 🙂
Lol … The Culpeper Mayor would have this reaction for his beautiful daughter! 🙂
The ring bearer was left behind and fell down before getting to the altar … poor thing. Haha!
The ring may have been dropped … LOL! But that did not stop them from being pronounced HUSBAND AND WIFE!!!! 🙂
One of my favorites!
LOVED their cake!!!
Yay! LOVE seeing their engagement photos in a book!
One last surprise!!!
YES! Andrew and his groomsmen came out dancing for Ashely when it was time to take off the garter! Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake and of course Blurred Lines by Robin Thick! Lol! PERFECT!
CONGRATS!!!!!! What a perfect night!
