We always look forward to our weddings, but this one was particularly special since Ashley & Sam have become great friends of ours.  We met Sam about 2 years ago in a networking group we’re in, and as soon as he popped the question to Ashley he was asking us about photography.  I knew Ashley was spending a lot of time planning her dream wedding, and the whole day just shined with all of her personal touches.  She was cool as a cucumber about the rain that kept popping up, and the entire day just felt fun (instead of like work).  ;)

 

We know you’re having a blast in California, but take a second to sit down and reminisce on your day!   Love you guys!

What an awesome way to kick off our spring wedding season!  We cut it close doing Julia and Eli’s engagement session a week before their wedding, but I think it just made us even more excited.  They are the sweetest couple (who met in the 6th grade!) and photographing them was a piece of cake.  They also had an awesome team of vendors who fended off the rain and still pulled off a beautiful wedding on the Wakulla River!

Thanks for inviting us into your family, hope you two are having a blast on your honeymoon!
