I met Michelle and Jonathan thanks to one of our past couples and I’m so glad we connected because it has been truly such a pleasure with them! Originally, they planned to have their big day last year, but ended up rescheduling for this year. Their special day finally arrived last weekend and I’m so excited to share such a beautiful wedding today on my blog!
Ashford Estate Wedding
Michelle and Jonathan chose The Ashford Estate simply because they loved it the most. They had been guests at a wedding there before and were able to truly experience the atmosphere. With French charm and stunning grounds, it was truly a no brainer for them to say “yes” to this spot! Their day was elegant and romantic – with a blush and sage green color scheme. Beyond being gorgeous, the greenery was chosen as a nod to their love of the outdoors and hiking.
My favorite part of this wedding day was a tie between all the portrait time we had and the heartfelt vows that Michelle and Jonathan shared during their ceremony. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house during the exchange of vows! I’m so glad these two finally had their special day, and that we had so much time to document it all. Weddings go by so fast, and it’s such a gift when couples get to spend so much of their day together to not only document their love, but also spend it with all their loved ones. From special moments during prep and portraits to a beautiful ceremony and a lively dance floor, every part of the day was beyond perfect for these two.
Congratulations, Michelle and Jonathan! Your wedding day was a dream and I’m so happy for the two of you!! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it and enjoy your honeymoon!
