Ashley + Alex

Wedding on the Bluffs

October 8th, 2016

I am so excited to finally be sharing the blog from Ashley and Alex's wedding. I have been sharing little glimpses into their day for the last two weeks and now I get to share the highlights with the world! This wedding was so incredibly beautiful. The attention to detail and working with such an incredible team of vendors made it such a breeze to shoot and let's just be honest, anyone who knows Ashley and Alex knows that their love for one another is so authentic and full of joy that it would be impossible for this day to have been anything but perfect. As the trolly shuttled the guests to their seats on The Bluff and the sun began to set, Ashley took her final walk as Ms. Miller and met her husband under an incredibly gorgeous arbor and the two became one! They spent the rest of the evening dancing with their beloved friends and family before heading off on their honeymoon along the Almalfi Coast! (I so wish I had gotten to shoot with them there!)

Congrats to you, Mr. and Mrs. Shaw!
