After their incredible fairytale Engagement session at the Japanese Tea Gardens last month, Ashley + David’s wedding at Tapatio Springs Resort was everything and more! The venue was incredible, the staff was more than helpful, the vendors who came together for this perfect day only added to its perfection and the bride and groom to be… well, their photos say it all! They are so in love, supported by a host of kind, loving friends and family and ready for a lifetime journey of fun, adventure, sweet kisses and a beautiful unity. This, my friends, is a match made in heaven.
Nothing but excitement graced the day. Ashley had her cousin, Dan, there as the talented videographer from Sacramento, CA, and every time he’d mention David’s name, Ashley would light up. I loved watching her get ready in the mirror, laugh with her girlfriends hug her sweet mamma, Roxy, all while coordinating her own wedding! How do you carry that much peace and composure while managing so much on your big day? I don’t know but Ashley KILLED IT! She was so kind and loving and had only love in her eyes.
“The first look” made me laugh so hard!!! Belly laugh! I know, I know – It’s supposed to be a sweet, precious moment with no laughing, but I couldn’t help it! David – as if to be goofy – whipped around so fast to see his bride as soon as Ashley tapped him on the shoulder… and then shock consumed his face followed by an awe and then adoration. SO MANY EXPRESSIONS passing through that man – it just made me laugh. David – You’re awesome, man. =)
Meeting at a church function, it only made sense that Ashley’s parents addressed their gratitude for David’s love for God. It was sweet to hear as a mom of 4 because that’s what you do everything you do as a parent for… for their future, their future husband/wife – you pray they meet a man/woman of God who will be the leader of spirituality in the household. David is such a stand up guy, so the tears in Ashley’s parent’s eyes somehow fell down my face. What a beautiful union to have such support, such a backing and such a beautiful family to marry into. I’m beyond excited for these two!!!
Ashley + David – THANK YOU for your kind words and always being so sweet-natured! Thank you for RUNNING up to the green in your wedding get-up! Thank you for being so much fun to photograph and for having such amazing friends and family for me to get to capture on the dance floor and during toasts!!! Gosh – this day was absolutely perfect and I wish you two all the best! YOU DESERVE IT!!
