Ashley & Brandon Part 1
Back in 2008 I offered Free Wedding Photography & had all my blog stalkers vote for the winner… Well, now you FINALLY get to see the results.. If you haven’t somewhere on the web already! The winners were Ashley & Brandon and wow… they really are incredible people & I am so honored that I was able to capture their wedding day in Nashville, TN. If anything, I got WAYYYYYYY more out of it than they did. I’m not sure I can even articulate how special they are. Just the way Ashley approached her wedding blew my socks/heels off. There was not even ONE element of her wedding day that was insignificant. Ashley is VERY VERY talented & did the entire wedding herself - jewelry, programs, dress, bouquets, etc… She is so artsy & unique. It was one of the most beautiful & MOST memorable weddings I’ve ever been a part of and she did the whole wedding for $2,000. In fact, Ashley now helps create & coordinate weddings, and I think you should contact her for your wedding: http://www.oliveyoudeerly.blogspot.com/
AND before I get into it, a HUGE thank you to Ashley for pimping me out on several different & very recognized blogs! She’s been very kind & generous in submitting her wedding images to blogs for more exposure!!
AND 1 more thing - there are lots of details in these next 3 posts because Ashley did create so many very personable touches for her wedding & I just think it’s so awesome and inspiring!
The dress - she added an apron she made to the dress to add to the bird theme of her wedding! AN APRON!!!
Check this out! Who would think of adding an apron to a wedding gown!? It’s so awesome!
Lots & lots of mis-matchy meaningful jewelry… and of course some fabulous shoes!
She put a bird’s nest in her hair… I’m really not sure who else could pull this off. I friggin’ love it!
Her bouquet that she made with special family beads & cameo attached for added sentimentality
She’s so beautiful
Brandon first saw her on the elevator actually… it was funny but I love the full blast face to face reaction!
I like how the Embassy Suites lobby even had a bird in the background just for them!! haha
Since I know nothing about TN, Ashley came up with the spots for photos. I LOVE that this is where she wanted to go!!!
