Gosh, where to begin?! Ashley and Joel’s wedding day was a dream!
On September 10, 2022, Ashley and Joel shared the most beautiful wedding day with their family, friends, and loved ones. They hosted their wedding ceremony and reception celebration at Long Bridge Golf Course – a gorgeous outdoor backdrop for this wonderful couple’s wedding day. The weather was perfect making the day even more beautiful than Ashley and Joel ever imagined.
The day started with Ashley and her bridesmaids getting ready at Long Bridge Golf Course while Joel and his groomsmen got ready not too far away at the Wyndham. Everyone was in fun, excited spirits throughout the morning! Before we knew it, it was time for the first look. Ashley and Joel shared the sweetest first look on their wedding day. Photographing their pure joy, love, and excitement for each other and the day ahead was unforgettable.
Soon after, the wedding party joined us as we took more photos throughout Long Bridge Golf Course. During the afternoon of photos, it was a joy to photograph Ashley and Joel alongside their favorite people on their most special day together. Then, it was ceremony time! Joel’s brother officiated such an incredibly heartfelt and memorable ceremony. Before, during, and after the ceremony, you couldn’t wipe the smiles from Ashley and Joel’s faces – I love it!
Next up was the celebration! I loved photographing toasts, special dances, and a packed dance floor as everyone celebrated alongside Ashley and Joel. So much fun! We ended the night with a sparkler exit with the couple, and it was the perfect ending to a perfect wedding day.
Ashley and Joel are two of the kindest, most compassionate people, and it was an honor to document their wedding day and to celebrate that they found forever with each other. Congratulations again, Ashley and Joel!
