Ashley and Danny had an amazing wedding. It was gorgeous. It was sentimental. It was full of love. And it was FUN! Let me tell you… unless I knock back a few drinks, you won’t ever see me dancing in front of anyone but my kids. But it took all my energy to NOT set my camera down and get out on the dance floor and join the crowd during their reception. Ashley and Danny’s wedding was downright fun. It was truly a celebration, which is exactly what a wedding should be. Their friends and family were celebrating two amazing people who fell in love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together.
I loved the wedding and enjoyed every minute of it.
To Ashley & Danny: the two of you are so sweet, fun, full of life, and most importantly, crazy in love. I wish you a lifetime of happiness together and a house full of gorgeous children. Thank you so much for having me capture your first day as husband and wife.

Without further ado, the photos…
The Bride & Groom
Stunning. I have no words to describe this photo other than stunning.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
The rings. Honestly, could they be more perfect? I don’t think its possible.
I feel joy and happiness when I look at this photo.
Isn’t she breathtaking?
Look what the ring bearer got to carry down the isle. So gorgeous.
Ashley’s dress was so gorgeous.
Mommy’s little girl.
She wrote Danny a card to read before the wedding. Super sweet.
Daddy’s little princess.
Ashley and her father came around the corner and it was the first time Danny laid eyes on his bride to be. The emotion on their faces could have stopped time.
Announcing, for the first time as husband and wife…
So many lovely details at the wedding. The guests were seated inside the main building as well as outside on the big wrap around porch. The food was so good. We’re talking hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, salads, fruit. My husband asked why we didn’t do that at our own wedding.
The toasts. First came Ashley’s dad. He gave the loveliest, sweetest, funniest speech. It had me in tears by the end of it. He talked about how Ashley is their only child and how it only seemed like yesterday that his baby girl rode her big girl bike for the first time without training wheels, or she had a full beanie baby collection. Made me sad because I kept thinking about how fast my babies are growing. Afterward, I was standing next to Ashley and she said “I love my dad so much”.
The first dance. What I love most about watching the two of them together is how Ashley always buries her head into Danny’s chest.
Father Daughter dance.
Mother Son dance.
Bouquet toss. Yes, there was some fierce competition.
And a few photos from one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. The dance floor was packed all night long. There were some seriously good dancing going on too. Fun fun fun!
Cheers to the newlyweds!!!
