Their Story :
As I parked my car and started walking up to this wedding.. I was overflowing with excitement!! Anna’s Veranda was the most adorable victorian house right next to the rather secluded beach, and when I walked through the door… it just got better. And with every corner I turned or new room I walked into, I could see exactly why Ashleigh chose it for her wedding day!!
I couldn’t have said it better myself. ^^
They had such an intimate first look on the front porch… where they stood holding hands, face to face, but with their eyes closed, Ashley was supposed to count to 3 and they would both open their eyes at the same time… but when she said 3.. only Justin opened his, haha!! It was pretty damn funny!
We all walked down to the beach together and got ready for the tear jerking ceremony led by Ashleigh’s dad!! Once it was official, we spent a little time on the sand getting a few timeless family shots, and since they didn’t have a bridal party, we got extra time for couples portraits!! 👏🙌 And I am so glad we did, because the lighting, the weather, the water, the beautiful bride, and handsome groom… every detail was so perfect.. I could have stayed there all day…. or at least until the sun went down.. which is what we did!! haha
After that, we headed back to the house for the reception where all of her helpful friends and family had bistro lights strung above, some super cute tables set up below, all adjacent to the TACO BARRRRR!!!! and crowned with mom’s homemade wedding cake…. it was the cutest, coziest backyard reception I have ever seen.
So after it was all said and done, I felt so lucky to be a part of their perfect day, I just had to ask how they chose me and what they thought of having me there…
