yay! ashley&ryan are FINALLY married!! you guys might remember that my cousin jessica got married this summer. well ashley is her bff. and to echo jessica’s speech at their reception, it just wouldn’t be “jessica&ashley” if they didn’t get engaged a few months apart, and then married a few months apart.
ashley really wanted to do something that set their wedding apart. we chatted for MONTHS, when it finally hit her. both she and ryan are teachers, so why not incorporate it into their day?! ashley spent months collecting antique books, chalkboards, and other teacher-themed goodies to work into the wedding. and the best part? we got to sneak into the school bus yard and take some photos of them having a smooch on the back of the bus! i love that ashley spent so much time making everything so unique to them as a couple. everything came together great!
to my dearest ashley&ryan – we are so incredibly happy for the two of you. you guys are so perfect for you and we cannot WAIT to see what’s in store for you.
