Ashley & Roy {Wedding Day}

The final wedding of the season is always a little bitter sweet.  The wedding of Roy and Ashley could not have been any better to close the year!

I love truly adore these guys and their families.  I was not only welcomed, but invited and treated like a guest! =]

It was a cool, crisp yet beautiful day!

Sarah ( was given lead over details and planning and she did a suburb job! A great planner makes everyones day so smooth!

I have never hidden my love affair with bouquets and Ashley’s did not disappoint!

Roy was excited and a little nervous about what was next…….

There were also two more ‘first looks’ that I did not anticipate …… first with Dad:

Next for her Brother:

When Bride and Groom’s are deciding if they would like to do the ‘first look’ or not … I often hear the only worry if they do is that the moment when they walk down the aisle will not be as special.

I believe these photos would take any worry away!

Great captures by Katie:

My perspective from the front of the Church:

The New Mr.and Mrs!

I loved that we had even more time after the ceremony to capture more portraits with the Bride and Groom:

Always a fun time with these two:

The reception was held at The Center for Rural Development in Somerset, KY

Great Entertainment by :

Their candy apple station was definitely a hit and stayed busy all night!!  Each guest could make their own and had their own special box to take home as a favor from Roy and Ashley’s Wedding!

The new bride just happened to be this little guys teacher at school … and while his mom lead the catering team, he danced the night away:

What an amazing end to an amazing day ………..

 Congratulations to Roy and Ashley!

I am sooooooooooo happy for the two of you! I am so blessed to also call you my friends and I look forward to staying in touch!
