CHRISTMAS TREE FARM
Congratulations to Ashley and Hal! What a beautiful, laid-back celebration this was! These two have known each other since they were youngins in grade school. Hal's brother actually brought them back together years later. Hal says that he loved her way back when. He surprised her with a proposal on her birthday, December 26th, where she almost tripped over him down on his knee.
In case you missed their adorable fall engagement session, you can view it here:
I had so many favorite parts of their wedding day. I loved that they included "warming of the rings", where they laid out their rings at the entrance of their ceremony and asked their guests to hold them and send best wishes and positive thoughts onto the symbols of the couple's love to each other.
A moment to cherish was when Hal just jumped into his vows right away! He started talking to Ashley in the very beginning of the ceremony. It was the sweetest and cutest thing- seeing him overwhelmed with emotion and so nervous and happy- and anxious!- to marry his best friend. I couldn't hear anything, but I loved that.
Let's also give a shout out to Ashley, who is very pregnant, for being a Wedding Warrior! I think I need to get a trophy for her. On her feet all day in the hot hot sun, and so nice and lovely. The ultimate fav was their REVEAL! The blue egg underneath the birds on their cake-topper meant that they are having a BOY!! WHOOP WHOOP!! Another addition to their already beautiful family!
A huge thank you to Katie Mollon, my second shooter, who is amazing, talented, and just plain wonderful! I wish I could work with her everyday.
Ashley and Hal, thank you so much for choosing me to document your story! You guys were the best! Enjoy your preview:
