What’s left to say that we didn’t already say about Ashley + Drew in their engagement session post (click this!)
These guys had one of the most epic Heartwood Hall weddings we’ve ever been a part of! Ashley and Drew scored the most perfect April weather anyone could possibly ask for, and the day went on without a hitch. These babes decided long before the wedding day that they were going to do a first look. John and I were absolutely ecstatic about this because we were able to take advantage of all the lovely Heartwood Hall has to offer. Ashley and Drew exchanged gifts and letters to one another just before they saw each other for the first time. Sweet Ashley had tears pouring down her cheeks as she read Drew’s sweet letter. As soon as Drew turned around to see Ashley he was an absolute puddle. It nearly had John and I choked up and it was one of the highlights of the entire day. During the ceremony, Drew was JUST as emotional seeing Ashley walk down the aisle with her dad as he was during the first look. It was absolutely precious and made for absolutely priceless images.
Ashley and Drew had a giant bridal party. It’s no secret that they are so very loved by all who know them. Ashley wore a stunning gown from Maggie Louise that was beyond flattering on her. Kasey Acuff did Ashley’s makeup and she was absolutely radiant all day. Kelsey Weaver of Salon Dixie did Ashley’s hair which was left down and curled, and so romantic. Shelby Hartman of Twenty-two Magnolias was the videographer and Ashley and Drew’s video turned out amazing (per usual.)
The reception was an absolute blast. Both “Hilary Clinton” and “Donald Trump” made an appearance (see below) as well as a T-Rex. We’ve never been so entertained in our lives.
Sweet Ashley and Drew, you guys are like family to us, and we are so thankful you allowed us to capture this precious day! Enjoy re-living these moments!
