EEEP! I am so excited to share more of Ashley and Daniel’s wedding day at the Mill Winery in Abilene, TX. Ashley and Daniel seriously did an INCREDIBLE job at making their wedding one of a kind. Their personalities and values were incorporated into literally everything. Ashley had so many details that represented members of her family that have impacted her. She rocked a beautiful Hayley Paige wedding dress, who by the way, is my FAVORITE dress designer. Daniel planned the ceremony to be meaningful and 100% them! He found a way to thank those that have shaped both him and Ashley by asking the preacher to call out specific individuals of the audience to recognize. Ashley and Daniel both prepared words ahead of time to publicly thank these individuals in front of everyone. I’ve never seen this done before, but I absolutely loved it. It was such a special way to recognize and show appreciation to those that loved them so well, helping them to finally get to this day. Daniel also prepared a poem that was both hilarious and sweet and also rhymed; which, let’s be real, was extremely impressive.
I honestly can’t tell you how much love was around this day. Hopefully, you can feel it in the photos. Any stranger could tell how loved this couple was by all the tears shared by so many people (including this girl behind the camera), but you can also see how much and how well they love these individuals back. They really did not want to make this day just special for them, but for the guests that they are so grateful to have in their lives. When Ashley walked down the isle, everyone was crying. And when they were announced husband and wife, it was the sweetest celebration that filled the rest of the evening (FOR REAL though these people know how to GET DOOOOOWN as you can see in the reception photos). Oh, and I cannot forget they had a “dog of honor”, who was the cutest goldendoodle around. Please, if you plan to have dogs at your wedding, hire me and I will love that child of yours so much!
It was one of the funnest, sweetest, joyous occasions I’ve ever been apart of, and I’m so happy for these two. I love getting to watch beautiful marriages begin. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Lee!
