Summer Wedding at Black Iris Estate

Nick and Ashley were married in a dreamy, romantic summer wedding at Black Iris Estate last night. One thing was evident to everyone throughout the entire day, and that is just how much Nick and Ashley love each other. It was so sweet to hear different pieces of their love story from them, from their friends and family, and then during toasts later in the evening. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when Nick’s best man spoke about the love Ashley and Nick share or when Ashley’s father shared about just how much each of these two have accomplished in their lives and how special it is that they ended up together.

My favorite part of the day was Nick and Ashley’s first look. I love that Nick and Ashley chose to share a first look, something I recomend to all of my couples. I can’t wait for you to see how sweet his reaction was. The tears in his eyes spoke volumes about the way he feels toward his bride. He even teared up again later as she was coming down the aisle during the actual wedding ceremony. A true testament that doing a first way doesn’t take anything away from that special “down the aisle” moment. It only adds to it.

Nick and Ashley, you two are such an amazing couple, and it was SUCH an honor to get to be your wedding photographer. Your wedding day was so incredible, and your marriage will be even better. Enjoy these sneak peaks. I can’t wait to send you your full wedding gallery soon!
