Ashley and Brian's Wedding
This was a special wedding for me to shoot. Brian is my cousin (you can see us, little and adorable here) and he has been bringing Ashley to family events for YEARS. I was thrilled because the gender distribution has always been incredibly lopsided as far as my cousins go, and it was nice to have another girl at the table to talk to! Not only that, but she happens to be an incredibly sweet girl. I remember chatting with her at one holiday about what she wanted to get her degree in and her listening to me with genuine interest and I could so easily see the compassion that Brian had clearly seen in her. And Brian, well, he's always been the life of the party. Everyone will tell you that he sings more than he talks and he talks a lot, too ;) But he's also just a great, funny, honest guy. They make a fantastic couple and while I'd already thought that at family events, I REALLY realized that when I shot their engagement session last summer and got to see them alone together and really listen to them talk.
Their wedding was just as open and heartfelt as their engagement session. Their friends were literally fighting to get to the microphone to toast this couple whom they all loved so much. Everyone could feel the strong bonds between Ashley, Brian, and their wedding party. It was an awesome thing to witness.
Ashley and Brian are currently on their thirty day cross-country honeymoon adventure (how ridiculously cool is that?!), but congratulations to you both! I'm so happy you found each other, and also that there is another married couple to hang out with at the grown up-ish kids' table on holidays ;)
Ashley and Brian asked for suggestions of places they should see on their 30 day (they left a day early, it IS 30 days) honeymoon adventure. And they plotted their course on a map for everyone to see.
