they were married on september 20th in the lovely state of georgia.
much like their engagement session the skies were worrisome again on their wedding day. randomly during their portraits we'd have to seek shelter. it cleared up off & on, occasionally looking beautiful & then right before the ceremony with a nice size blip on the radar we braved the weather & ashley & aaron were married outside as they had hoped! it was perfect... the minister heard the thunder quickly approaching- skipped a few parts of the ceremony & said "kiss the bride!" and we quickly ran inside!
& then the reception. it was very sweet with first dances, toasts, bouquet & garter toss, a bridesmaid & a groomsmen (brother & sister as well) sang one of the most beautiful duets i've ever heard. it was a lovely evening. inside! outside the skies let it pour & pour :)
da bride :)
i love these shots. i know i've said it before, but it's as if you're born again as a bride!
meanwhile the boys are getting ready as well...
love this one.
they actually chose to see each other before hand. WHICH I LOVE!!!! did i just scream that, i'm sorry i meant to use a mega phone. it allows us so much more time, that's relaxed to capture your love.
first glance. how cute are they?
portrait time. ashley really wanted a good variety- so this was the longest i've ever been given for portraits & i think we got some reallllly cool ones.
these boys really didn't know how to enjoy themselves. i mean come on. how cute are they? no one even whined, except maybe aaron should have after he got kicked!
the ladies looking temptressie. is that a word? ya get my drift.
liking it a whole lot.
oh i lied. this is my favorite.
& for the ceremony! the sun was literally out for maybe two minutes of which ashley & her father were walking down the aisle. how cool is that?
i love the first dance. such a sweet public moment.
grooms cake :)
oh lord. stop it ashley. every lady i looked at had tears in their eyes. not me though, i'm tough as nails. sheesh. as if i had a chance.
we all recovered quite nicely though.
the best man speech was hilarious. these are necessary survivor tools!
what a beautiful day. thank you all so much for choosing me to document it!!!!
