Christian Wedding at Ashton Gardens

March 12, 2024




Hey there, lovely readers! Today, I’m thrilled to share the heartwarming story of Brianna and Davi, a couple whose love blossomed on a mission trip and endured the trials of long-distance. As fate would have it, their journey led them to a breathtaking Christian wedding at Ashton Gardens, and I was fortunate to be their wedding photographer.

As their wedding day approached, we faced a challenge – limited time to photograph the intricate details. But, with determination and a touch of adventure, Brianna and her mom brought everything to my house for a unique and cozy photoshoot.

Now, enter the unexpected guest – a temporary cockatiel with a charming story of its own. Rescued on a cold, rainy winter day, this little feathered friend added a touch of fun to our details session. Brianna and her mom, true to their gracious nature, embraced the lively bird’s chatter, making the experience all the more memorable.

Now, on the wedding day, we find ourselves at the breathtaking Ashton Gardens. This venue is dear to me as it’s where I first photographed a wedding and remains my most visited. Every visit is a special delight. The day starts with touching moments between Brianna and her parents, followed by an emotional first look between Brianna and her dad, showcasing their close bond.

The wedding party, as vibrant as ever, brought their creativity to the bridal reveal, resulting in delightful and fun portrait ideas. A personal favorite – the shot with flowers adorning Brianna’s head, capturing the essence of her joy.

The Christ-centered ceremony was a profound and emotional affair, with tears of joy flowing freely. The couple radiated happiness, overjoyed to finally unite in marriage.

As the day transitioned to the reception, the Ashton Gardens venue took on a new charm in the daytime. A brunch wedding infused the celebration with a refreshing energy, leading to a whimsical bubble exit that was an absolute joy to capture. Bubbles, with their magical quality, added a playful touch to the photographs, creating lasting memories.

A heartfelt thank you to Brianna and Davi for entrusting me with the honor of being their photographer. Every moment was a testament to the love and laughter that defines their journey together. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness for this incredible couple! 🥂💍
