When I first met with Ashley and Will, I was super excited because Ashley works for one of my favorite florists in the area, The Enchanted Florist. I was even more excited after we all got to talking and Will mentioned that he had a Ducati motorcycle that he wanted to incorporate in some photos with them. Beautiful flowers: check. Motorcycle: check. Awesome couple: check. So I'm sure you can imagine how elated I was that they decided to choose me as their photographer! Ashley and Will were married at the super stunning venue, Oxon Hill Manor. Before our arrival, we did some prep and detail photos at the Hotel Monaco of which I was pretty stoked about. Ashley had brought one of her dogs, Sophie, to the hotel, so it was really hard to have to shoot details when there was a crazy cute dog around! Luckily, Mike was able to get some stellar shots of Sophie relaxing while everyone got ready. Upon arrival at Oxon Hill, Ashley was thrilled to see all of her Enchanted Florist pals working on the details with the flowers. I have to say, I don't think I've ever seen so many flowers at a wedding, and they were all stunning. Even up until right before the ceremony, Ashley herself was working on trimming her bouquet so it looked flawless. Now that's dedication!
The ceremony was inside due to some impending rain, but it was just as gorgeous as if it were outside! Ashley and Will absolutely beamed with excitement throughout the whole thing. I just love how Will looked at Ashley...it took my breath away! After the ceremony we took some awesome portraits of the family, wedding party and couple, and then headed inside for their beautiful reception. Kelley Cannon Events kept the entire event running smoothly, and we all had a fabulous time. When it was time to cut the cake, I sort of winced because Ashley and Will's Maggie Austin cake was one of the most flawless cakes I'd ever seen! But Ashley and Will kept it very classy and delicately fed each other their super gorgeous (and I assume very yummy) cake! The rest of the evening was spent dancing and partying, and eating tons of candy provided by Main Event Caterers incredible candy bar. Later on, Mike and I took some nighttime photos of Ashley and Will inside on the staircase and then out on the porch where...you may have guessed it...the glorious Ducati was waiting for us! I was so pleased with how our Ducati photo turned out, and I know Will was too. :)
I can't thank Ashley and Will enough for hiring Mike and I to photograph their special day. I had an absolute blast with all of the amazing vendors they worked with, and also just loved spending time with their family and friends. It was truly a special day, and I hope you enjoy the photos!
