We are all about capturing romance, and it is truly such an honor to document love stories! Allen proposed to Ashley in one of the most romantic places on earth – standing on top of the Eiffel Tower! The two began planning their fairytale wedding, and the St. Paul Hotel, surrounded by its lush gardens in the summer, was the perfect setting to host their Beauty and the Beast themed day.
The ladies began the morning with Glam by Sam on hair and Ziel Bridal on makeup. Ashley put on her gorgeous Allure Bridals gown from the Wedding Shoppe, and we captured a few portraits including a few shots with Ashley’s violin. We headed outdoors where Ashley met Allen for their first look in the gardens. He placed her ring on her finger, and we set off to take portraits together among the grounds and near the epic castle-like Landmark Center. The groomsmen joined us looking dapper in their Men’s Wearhouse suits, and we finished up with wedding party and family photos before heading indoors for the ceremony.
Family and friends had gathered from far and near to celebrate, and soon after Ashley and Allen shared their vows and said “I Do,” everyone chatted as they mingled throughout cocktail hour. The reception began, and the ballroom looked beautiful thanks to the team at St. Paul Hotel and Centerville Floral. Guests enjoyed an absolutely delicious dinner followed by an amazing cake by Sweet Assurance. The evening was filled with musical talent, and Ashley did an incredible job of playing her violin! She and Allen stepped out for a few golden hour photos, and the night came to an end with dancing with Vast Entertainment. Ashley and Allen, we could not be happier for you as you begin your very own Happily Ever After!
