What. A. GORGEOUS. Day!!!!
Ashtyn and Luke’s wedding day was incredible! I’ve taken photos for both of them and their families in the past, including Ashtyn’s senior photos, so, photographing their wedding day was so surreal! Luke and Ashtyn prayed together right before their ceremony and also wrote their own vows. (which had me tearing up!!) It was refreshing to hear how they want to have a Christ centered marriage and see how their family will continue to pray for their marriage as the years go on.
I love how Ashtyn and Luke’s families are so close knit that I couldn’t tell their friends apart from their family! And boy could they dance!! There were so many dance off’s during the reception! Another thing that was beautiful about their wedding was the outside Reception at Davis Islands Garden Club. It’s right on the water and It’s not something we see too often.
In the pictures, you’ll be able to see some of my favorite moments of the day, the daddy daughter first look…(that had all the bridesmaids in tears no doubt!), Luke and Ashtyn praying before their ceremony, their PORTRAITS!!!, both parent dances (One of the cutest daddy daughter dances I’ve seen!), a special night time portrait in the gazebo, the delicious Churro Bar (I wish these were at every wedding!!!) and of course, their sparkler exit to their happily ever after!!
Thank you Luke and Ashtyn for choosing Jon and I to capture one of the most precious days of your life! We love you both!!
A big thank you to all of the amazing wedding vendors we were honored to work with!
