Ashley and Jon

Ashley & Jon
June 7,2008

What a wonderful couple! Ashley and I along with her photographer, Jessica Strickland started working together on a detailed plan for pictures outside on her parent's property. Rebecca and Tim (Ashley's parents) worked very hard landscaping and even building a bridge for Ashley. So on Saturday as you all know it rained and rained and rained some more. It rained so bad that even some guests were unable to attend the wedding due to the roads and interstates being flooded. And of course, our plan for outdoor pictures was canceled. But we didn't let that ruin the day.
Ashley looked gorgeous in her dress and in her 5 inch heels with glued on feathers!
Ashley and Jon were married in the "Glass House" at the Ritz Charles. Romel Montgomery from Paradise Decor did a fabulous job with the flowers. The centerpieces were amazing and the bouquets were exactly what Ashley wanted. The ceremony was performed in the round with only parents and grandparents surrounding the couple. The guests were seated at their tables. We placed small wooden fans and the ceremony program at each place setting so guests were able to follow along. When the couple was pronounced husband and wife everyone had a laugh when Scott from Ultimate Entertainment played "I like to move it,move it." from the movie Madagascar.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres outside in the garden area. Dinner was then served. After dinner the dancing began and didn't stop until the reception ended. One highlight was during garter and bouquet toss. Jon played a joke on Ashley and instead of taking off her garter he pulled a pair of grandma panties out from in his sleeve. Also Nate, Jon's bestman caught the garter and his girlfriend caught the bouquet. How fitting! I walked over and gave Nate my business card!
This was a wonderful wedding and reception. I was so glad to have the opportunity to be a part of it. And now Ashley and Jon are off the Belgium!

Thank you for making Ashley & Jon's wedding and reception wonderful. If there were any problems (besides the rain), I didn't know about them. I could enjoy the big event and know that you handled everything with grace, professionalism & efficiency, all with a smile on your face. Thank you again, kiss that baby girl for me........
