Ashley + Thomas = Married!

Sometimes I get the amazing joy to photograph a wedding of people that I truly love and cherish.  Ashley and Thomas’ wedding was one of those and I’m so excited to share some of the many many images I took on March 24, 2012!

The beautiful bride!

Now, this bridal party will probably always be some of my favorites.  First, it contains my previous roommates (Ashley, Heather, and Sara) and I knew the rest of the bridesmaids through Ashley!

The handsome groom, Thomas!

As we were walking over to the church from the hotel the girls got ready at, Ashley decided to recreate the scene from Bridesmaids.  And of course, I needed to share it here!

One of the many things that I loved about this wedding was how much of an emphasis was placed on putting God first.  The guys prayed together, the girls prayed together, and the wedding party prayed together right before the ceremony.  You shall see more later…

Ashley and TK didn’t want to see each other until the wedding.  This didn’t stop them from praying together though before the ceremony.

The girls praying.

Could there be any cuter ringbearers?  They forgot the pillows walking down the aisle, but I don’t know if anyone noticed!

There was a time of worship before their vows.  Matt and I played this song at our wedding.  I actually walked down the aisle to this song so it has great meaning for me.

First dance.

Father Daughter Dance.

Couldn’t help but get a photo with my previous roomies!  I love these ladies!

They had lavender there for people to throw as they were leaving.  It smelled SO GOOD!

All in all, it was a great wedding with some great people involved in it.  Thank you Ashley and Thomas for trusting me to photograph your beautiful wedding.  I love you both so much!
