Ashley + Mike | 7.22.17

We’re familiar with all of the languages of love: roses, sweet gestures, hand-holding, office supplies…wait, what?  Yes, Ashley and Mike’s love story started at Office Max and we love that they chose to include it for their portraits on their wedding day.

That isn’t the only part of their relationship that’s to love, though.  Their first date was the timeless dinner-and-a-movie combo – can’t go wrong with that!  They also planned their wedding fun to coincide with their five year anniversary.  Mike pulled out all of the stops, coordinating the family to be present for their engagement and here we are now blogging about the pinnacle of their love.

Ashley’s gown featured lace and beading that was more than swoon-worthy playing ever-so-nicely with her sweetheart neckline.  She radiated excitement and beauty while she prepped for her big day.

Meanwhile, Mike in all of his fancy-sock glory donned his sharp light grey suit and posed with his groomsmen for that obligatory jackets-over-the-shoulder shot.  They all looked more than ready to kick off a wedding to remember!

Ashley’s bridesmaids’ dresses played into the pops of coral and pink and truly were overjoyed to be standing next to Ashley on this most important day.

Every part of the day did a perfect job accenting Ashley and Mike’s special day - from the coral pops of color to the drop can lights at the church to the gold and other metallic touches that felt glamorous and added sweet sparkle.  You could really feel how excited both families were for the unification of the both sides.

Around the time for portrait taking, the clouds looked a bit ominous.  We missed the downpour but were able to get some beautiful photos of a very dark and moody sky.

Ashley and Mike, you guys have the support and love of your family going into your life as married people.  We’re so thankful you let us play a part and wish you all the happiness in the world!  Congratulations!
