Weddings are such beautiful and emotional events. The celebration of two people becoming husband and wife, surrounded by their closest family and friends, is such a joy to photograph. Ashlee and Ethan are the sweetest couple and their love for each other is just beautiful. It was such an honor to be able to capture both their laughter and their tears on their wedding day!
The morning began as the ladies finished hair and makeup by Lindsay Lickteig before heading over to Dellwood Country Club. Ashlee’s mom and sister helped her into her gorgeous gown by Allure Romance from the Wedding Shoppe. The tears began as Ashlee greeted her father and bridesmaids in her gown. The reactions were priceless and we couldn’t wait for Ethan to see his beautiful bride. It was a moment to remember as the two wiped tears and sweetly chatted about their big day. We began portraits together throughout Dellwood’s gorgeous grounds and ceremony site. The florals by Forever in Bloom were stunning and went perfectly with the bridesmaids dresses by Kennedy Blue. We finished wedding party and family portraits and the ceremony began.
There were countless moments throughout the ceremony that were simply breathtaking. From the moment Ashlee’s father gave her away, to the laughter and tears throughout the vows, to Ashlee and Ethan’s kiss after saying “I Do,” every moment was picture perfect! The two were all smiles as they recessed and greeted their guests before heading in to the reception. Following dinner, and an incredible Buttercream cake, the speeches began and the laughter was contagious! Luke from PM Enterprises kicked off the dance and the evening ended with an epic bouquet toss. Ashlee and Ethan, we are so happy for you both and we can’t wait for you to celebrate newlywed life in Hawaii this coming winter!
