I got to meet Ashley and Mike for their engagement session last Fall. I went home SOOOO excited for their wedding day! They're incredibly easy to be around. They're very giggly, gracious, appreciative, and clearly in love!
Friday wedding, forecast: RAIN - of course! It's been such a rainy summer, why not bring it into the Fall too! I spent the morning with Ashley and her ladies at their house getting ready. Rain, rain. They get on the trolley to head to the venue and guess what??? The sun had popped out! Just in time for their first look! Incredible!
Ashley got her dress on at the venue, Butternut Farm Golf Club then met Mike outside for their first look - with (most) of their wedding party viewing from the porch. I loved it! Ashley, with her devilish grin, grabbed him by the butt to let him know she was there. Mike clearly loved it! Ha! They immediately embraced in a hug with their fans cheering in the background. We then hopped on a golf cart to take some portraits of the two before their ceremony.
Their ceremony! Ashley made her way down the aisle to Mike, escorted by her Dad who was trying very hard to hold back his tears. When their officiant asked for the rings, everyone looked at each other like a deer in headlights. "Ummmm, rings??" Mom to the rescue! I should mention here that Ashley's Mom is the wedding coordinator at Butternut. She was trying SO hard to step away from that role and just be the bride's Mom, but at this moment she jumped back into coordinator mode and ran! She got the rings, they fit, they said their I do's, and sealed it with a kiss! PARTY TIME!
A beautifully decorated reception room, fitting Ashley and Mike's style to a T was ready for them to enjoy some dinner, cocktails, and dancing. They rocked that dance floor. And I mean, EVERYONE! It was Friday and they were ready to party!
Congratulations to you, Mike and Ashley, and your entire crew! It was such an honor to be able to capture your wedding day!
