Ashley & Brian’s wedding day was such an exciting one to be a part of – mostly because they were just SO excited for it! I showed up to Ashley’s parents’ house and was greeted by Ashley’s beautiful smile that I swear didn’t leave her face all day long! Even when she paused to settle her nerves, she smiled as she did it. She was just so excited and anxious and all the feelings for the day to begin! But most of all, she just wanted to see Brian. As she slipped her wedding dress on with the help of her mom, sisters, best friend and flower girl – she quietly said as she looked in the mirror “I wonder what Brian’s doing at this moment”. It was just THE cutest.
Brian was at the church, getting ready with his three brothers. He anxiously waited at the front of the alter as the bridal party walked down, the doors closed and we all waited with anticipation for what felt like forever for them to open again and reveal Ashley standing there with her arm around her dad. A wait well worth it – his body just immediately released all the nerves HE felt and he just smiled as she made her way down the aisle. Once they were hand in hand, standing at the alter together, they both became overwhelmed with emotion. It was so sweet! They tied the knot in the same church Ashley’s parents were married in! It was a small, beautiful church and the bells rang as they walked down the aisle and were pronounced husband and wife! Is there anything more romantic than church bells ringing for you??
We made our way to the Conservatory at Sussex Fairgrounds where all of Ashley and Brian’s hard work paid off! Everything looked amazing, the food was incredible, the signature drinks looked perfect! And the weather held up – it was the PERFECT breezy July day! We took their photos all around the grounds and they even had time to squeeze in a practice run of their first dance! But before we knew it, they were dancing in front of their guests! The cutest thing about their reception is there were SO many tiny guests on the dance floor – I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many kids and babies at a wedding! But they danced all night long! Once the sun set, everyone was in for a real treat – FIREWORKS!! While the guests watched together, Ashley & Brian had their own private viewing! I LOVED that they had this moment to themselves where they were able to just pause and take it all in just the two of them 🙂 After the fireworks ended, everyone went back inside to keep dancing! These two know how to have fun together!! I loved watching them on the dance floor! I have SO many favorites from this day and just can’t believe it went so perfectly for them!! Ashley & Brian, congratulations!!! I’m so happy for you both and wish you nothing but the absolute best in your future together!! 🙂
