Ashley & Mike – 05.23.09

When I spoke to Ashley on the phone about a week ago to discuss her wedding day schedule, I could really tell that she and Mike had put a lot of time and effort into planning their wedding. And when Chris and I arrived at the Westfields Marriott yesterday to shoot their big day, we witnessed their vision fall into place! The details were fantastic, and we had a great time capturing everything for them.

We started out by grabbing a few shots of everyone getting ready:

And of course, I have to spend some time on the bride’s fabulous details:

How ridiculously good-looking are these two?!

Ashley’s dress was just exquisite.

The flower arrangements for both the ceremony and the reception, and for Ashley’s and Mike’s bridal party were so luxurious! Check out the huppah:

And these bouquets:

I love the expression on Ashley’s face!

Stunning, you two!

Okay, again with the flowers. I really had fun photographing these! And the lighting totally transformed the ballroom at the Marriott.

Ashley and Mike provided a few lounge areas around the dance floor for their guests.

Chris grabbed this beautiful moody shot of the first dance:

And then the dance floor was packed all night long:

Ashley and Mike – Chris and I are so happy for you two and we had a great time yesterday! We hope you have a wonderful time on your honeymoon!

    Susan–these are great. As usual, you are The Detail Queen. I love ’em all. That couch for the bouquet was heaven sent, eh?! Their reception was amazing–crazy lighting and furniture–had a very cool, club-like feel. You nailed the lighting for those dance floor shots! Love the image of them exiting the ceremony , the emotion is perfect!
