Sometimes, love is there all along.
Ashlee is an only child, and her BFF Lindsey became like a sister many, many years ago. Ashlee spent tons of time at Lindsey’s house when they were growing up, and she even went on family vacations with Lindsey’s family…which included her brother Patrick. As you probably guessed, Ashlee and Pat fell in love, and the two were married this fall in an emotional ceremony which joined not only the two of them, but also their families. Congratulations, Ashlee & Pat!
The things we go through for beauty! 😉
All the girls. Loooove the sweet flower girl’s monagrammed dress!
Pat, the handsome groom…
Ashlee’s flowers were from All in the Details, and they were so beautiful and full of unusual fall blooms. The gold leaf pin belonged to her Grandmother, and the ladybug is for good luck!
More details from the church…
The little ring bearer carried this adorable bird’s nest instead of a pillow.
After we shot Ashlee’s bridal portrait several months ago, her mom contacted me to arrange a creative and touching surprise for Ashlee. With the help of a friend who is better in photoshop than me :-), we took a photo from Ashlee’s parents’ wedding and placed Ashlee next to her mom in the exact same pose! It was such a special gift, and I know Ashlee will treasure it.
Lots of emotions before walking down the aisle…
…and during the vows.
Congratulations from mom…
Ashlee and Pat’s reception was at Hopkins Farm in Simpsonville, SC. It was a beautiful location for the fall celebration! I really love this First Dance photo….love the emotion, the movement, the light….
Details from the decor at the Farm. (Kudos to whoever carved “Just Married” into a pumpkin!!)
Toasts from Pat’s brother and sister.
This crowd broke.it.down on the dancefloor! They had a blast and were so much fun to watch!
Leaving in a downpour of birdseed. Their facial expressions are too funny!
And finally, my favorite part of any wedding day: the “couple portraits.” The weather was yukky and the light quickly fading, but we found some cool spots around the farm for Ashlee & Pat’s photos, like this awesome textured silo…
Congratulations Ashlee and Pat! You guys and your families are really special, and I’m honored to have been part of your wedding day.
