From the tartan ribbon, heirloom jewelry, soft blooms, and bagpipes this wedding had a strong Celtic theme and feel throughout the whole day. Everywhere you looked there was another detail carefully chosen and thought through.
Watching Ashley get ready at her parents house with just her mom and sister helping her is so special and sweet. We were all laughing at the teamwork it takes to lace up a wedding gown! Ashley chose to continue the tradition of wearing her great grandmothers necklace for her wedding ceremony. I loved how she chose to honor her family in that way.
Following their catholic mass ceremony we sought as much shade as we could. It turned out to be a mostly sunny and muggy day with a random downpour that evening. If that’s not Georgia weather I don’t know what is. They chose to have a pretty awesome getaway car from their ceremony and reception!
My favorite moment was when the bagpiper opened up the reception ballroom by leading all the guests in from cocktail hour. It was such a special moment to formally open up the reception for the guests to have a seat and get the party started! David definitely tore up the dance floor and all their guests followed suit. Breaking up the sparkler exit trend with fiber optic wands is an awesome way to fun and safely send off the couple on their honeymoon!
