Mark & Ashley – 9/20/08 – Part 1

September 23, 2008

On Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting Mark & Ashley’s wedding on the Connecticut shore. I met them in person in the spring for their engagement session but Ashley and I both have the email bug so have been corresponding for quite some time πŸ™‚

They are a really really lovely young couple and it was clear throughout the day what love and joy they bring to their families. Mark is English and many of his family were in town for the celebration so there was great style and great hats πŸ™‚ Ashley’s family is growing every year and I so enjoyed meeting them all.

We started the day at Rob Rivers in Mystic, CT

Ashley’s sister (and maid of honor) is also named Amanda πŸ™‚

Ashley was quite excited when the veil was on and the whole look came together

LOVE the glasses πŸ™‚

I was psyched that we were able to spend a little time with the boys. They were watching the Ryder Cup, putting together a mix for the cocktail hour, and toasting the impending nuptials!

Ashley with her beloved nephew Cooper who has stolen everyone’s hearts

Ashley’s dress had two parts – here the ladies are “fluffing” the undercoat so it had more body!

Dive in!

LOVE the contrast here between her black eyelashes and red lips.

Ashley’s bridesmaid and future sister-in-law looks on as she gets dressed.

This was so emotional and it totally made me tear up. Amanda started to cry which made Ashley tear up. So to calm everyone down they both started singing and harmonizing just beautifully. It cooled them down but it made everyone else cry!

More to come soon!

Hello? Another gorgeous bride and more perfect pictures! Amanda–these are great! I wish I could have heard Ashley and her sister sing; that sounds right up my alley. (Actually–you could have joined in!)
