The heirloom ring, the patch embroidered on her dress, the handmade wagon. So much love and thought went into making this day a celebration of just that, love. Ashley and Donnie have spent many days apart while he serves our country. Finally the day had come, to promise each other love for eternity. Just as the invitation reads, This day I will marry my best friend. The one I laugh with, live for, and love. Ashley and Donnie, we are so blessed to have been a part of documenting your story. As you move onto this next chapter in life, remember to laugh, live and love. Thank you for serving our country, God bless you both!
The day started with a pair of gorgeous Nina bridal shoes and sparkly diamonds.
A beautiful bride, check. An Oscar De La Renta perfume as "something blue," check.
Love these Vera Wang bridesmaid dresses as they hung from the trees. Each bridesmaid had a special wire hanger with their name on it.
A beautiful Maggie Sottero dress hanging next to lucky number 13, the day they were married.
Love the reactions of the father of the Bride and bridesmaids as they see the beautiful bride!
Flower girls in tutus and an adorable ring bearer pulling the wagon, my favorite ever!
The rustic lanterns that lined the aisles were a perfect touch.
What a sweet first kiss and announcement as husband and wife!
This bridal party was awesome! They just wanted to have fun and enjoy the day.
After the ceremony, we explored Wedgewood The Retreat Champions Club and found some gorgeous light.
Ashley, you are gorgeous in your Maggie Sottero dress.
What a beautiful backdrop of Temecula's rolling hills, perfect for romantic bridal portraits.
What a beautiful way to celebrate a first dance under strung cafe lights at Wedgewood The Retreat, as the sun drops behind the rolling hills.
The father daughter dance was a cowboy cha-cha!
And I'll end on one of my favorites...
