I had been looking forward to Ashley and Andrew‘s wedding for over a year…and, now, that the day has come and gone, I have to say it was just as perfect as I imagined it would be! Okay, maybe even more! And it wasn’t just Ashley’s lovely Nicole Miller gown and perfection in sparkly styling or the beautiful florals by Forget me Knodt or the dapper groom rocking some Ray Bans…it was the joy and happiness and heart that could be felt in every moment of the day. The giddiness of Ashley and her girls as they flitted about the room getting ready in the morning. Ashley and Andrew sneaking looks of smiles, laughs, and winks during their ceremony. The Greek wedding ceremony, steeped in so much tradition and history. The smiles they couldn’t wipe of their faces. The joy on their parents faces. The way they make each other laugh. The way Yai-Yai took over the dance floor. The way they dance together. The way their families came together for a toast. The way they love together. The perfection is in all those things! In family. In friends. In tradition. In love. And a little sparkle never hurts!
Oh, Ashley, between your impeccable taste in sparkly things, love for Veuve champagne, and being unbelievably sweet, I can’t get enough of you! And Andrew, between your kind heart, incredibly adorable relationship with your neice, the way you look at Ashley, and those infamous dance skills, you are the best! I truly cannot say enough about how wonderful these two are! Click through for more of their beautiful wedding day!
Thank you to the incredible Jessica for second shooting and not only winning the hearts of flower girls everywhere, but for making sure all the pretty reception details were covered when I can’t be in two places at once!
Ashley and Andrew, never stop making each other laugh. I’m pretty sure it is your key to forever. And it is such a beautiful thing!
