Ashley + Matt: The Wedding

Ashley and Matt's wedding was one of those rare events where everything just seemed to go off without a hitch. Everyone was thrilled to be there and to be a part of sharing in their happiness, the weather was perfect, and the day flowed by seamlessly. I immediately felt like one of the girls, and Jess had a blast following the guys around Sugarloaf documenting their hilarity. 

Ashley's Maid of Honor, Laura, has known Ashley since they were infants (their grandfathers were friends!), and she took her job as MoH seriously, even making a beautiful box that she made sure was filled with letters to Ashley from her parents, her soon-to-be-in-laws, herself, and best of all, Matt. That set the tone for an emotional day full of the love Matt and Ashley clearly share, which included Matt's father and sister preparing a special song for them, and emotional, heartfelt toasts to their happiness from their closest friends. 

Jess and I loved working with them, their family, and all of their truly amazing friends (and just plain loved THEM), and we can't wait to see a bunch of them again at Lindsay and Anthony's wedding in September! Now without further ado, enjoy the gallery from this first step on their journey as husband and wife!

Ali + Jon: The Sneak Peek

When I hung up the phone after my first booking appointment with Ali, I thought, "I think I just met my new best friend." That is the kind of person she is: warm and funny and SO easy to hang with. All the way through this process, from that first phone call, through touring the venue and trekking all over the property while the sky was spitting ice at us to scope out First Look possibilities, through her entire awesomely fun wedding day, that never changed, and Jon is a perfect quiet complement to all of Ali's spirited bubbliness (is that a word? It is now!). More on that day later, but for now, enjoy this sneak peek of their July 28th wedding!
