Ashley & Brandon were married at one of the worlds most romantic gardens Magnolia Plantation this past May. We have known Ashely’s family for many, many years so of course this wedding was extra special. Ashley and Brandon chose to do a first look in one of the many hidden gardens on the property. To keep things fair, they both walked backwards and turned around at the same time (instead of the traditional she touches him on the shoulder) which we loved! Before their ceremony we were able to explore many locations off the beaten path for photos of just the two of them. We have never had a bride give us a full hour for photos of just the two of them and boy has that made choosing images extra hard! 🙂 Following their ceremony, guest enjoyed a view of the gardens during a beautiful sunset and partying the night away! It seriously could not have been more of a perfect day! Congrats Ashely & Brandon we are so excited for you both!
How cute is Ashley’s niece Mollie playing dress up in her dress?!
Ashley and Brandon took dance lessons and had a choreographed first dance. How awesome?!
She even incorporated a fun dance with her brother Justin to honor their father Dennis Melton.
