Ashlynn & Taylor – to know them is to love them. I have never met a sweeter couple! They love fiercely, laugh contagiously and make you feel like you’ve known them your whole life. Their day was one of my favorite weddings to date, and I believe it’s because of the kind of couple that they are. These two are such gems, and the friends and family that surrounded them to celebrate were equally gracious and fun!
I met Ashlynn at Cedarville, and we ended up working together before I left to pursue photography, so this day was extra special for me! We had talked and dreamed of her wedding day, before Taylor was even in the picture, anticipating the man that God was preparing for her, and what the day would be like. So when she asked me to be the one to document their story, I was so excited! I had to hold back tears the whole day because it is beautifully obvious that Taylor is her soulmate. These two could not be a better match for each other, and the pure joy and excitement they had for being married was something special to see.
These two also had an incredible vendor team around them to make their day perfect! I loved working with Leda Anderson of Events Held Dear – she made the day run smoothly, and was so great at arranging details before the big day even began! Evergreen Flower Co is literally the florist of my dreams – I have wanted to photograph her designs for so long, and was smitten by Ashlynn’s gorgeous bouquet and centerpieces! Something Old Dayton did an incredible job of styling the wedding and using their rentals to transform the Simon Kenton Inn into a fairytale reception space! Mari and Kyle are some of the most talented people in the industry, and I was honored to work alongside them.
Ashlynn and Taylor, it was a true privilege to have a front row seat to the pure, tender love that you share. I pray that your marriage will continue to be a picture to a watching world of the love of Christ that brings soul-satisfying joy to those that trust in Him. My heart is overflowing for you both! Enjoy my favorites from your day 🙂
