It is gallery delivery day for Ashleigh and Chase, and I am so excited to get to share their blog post!
Three weeks ago Ashleigh and Chase celebrated their wedding at the Frontier Culture Museum on the most perfect fall day. I could tell right away when I arrived that Ashleigh was already having the best day ever. She and her ladies were getting ready in the basement of the Octagonal Barn and I could hear them laughing and joking before I even walked in. A few miles across town Sydney, my excellent second shooter, was with the guys at Ashleigh and Chase’s house having just as good of a time.
Every couple has their own ways of expressing themselves; some are sweet and quiet, some are goofy and fun, and Ashleigh and Chase are DEFINITELY goofy and fun to. the. max! Just scroll down to see their newlywed portraits and you’ll be able to tell just how fun they are! Their ceremony started with the words “Mawwiage. Mawwiage is what bwings us togethew today…” and seeing Ashleigh try not to fall over laughing only made it harder for me to do my job without laughing. The ceremony finished with a Celtic hand-fasting ceremony, a ring exchange, and then Ashleigh and Chase were MARRIED!
We snuck off after the ceremony to take some dreamy newlywed portraits with them while the most beautiful, glowy light was still in the sky, and then returned to their epic, fall-themed party. The reception was complete with a thanksgiving meal (Turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing!), and a pumpkin shaped cake!
Cheers to you, Ashleigh and Chase!
Wishing you many years of Disney quotes, inside jokes, and adopting ALL the animals!
