The wedding of Jacob and Ashley was an absolute dream come true! From the moment you stepped foot into the venue, you could feel the overflowing love between the couple and their contagious joy that filled the air. Lakeside at Welch Estate is such a beautiful venue by the water.

Despite the gloomy forecast predicting rain and storms all week, including on their special day, the universe had other plans. Instead, we were graced with a quick rain shower, as if nature itself was showering them with blessings and good luck right before they said their vows.

Every little detail was carefully thought out and added a touch of personality to the day, making it truly unique. The enchanting colors, from the soothing slate blue to the pure whites and vibrant greens, created a magical atmosphere that left everyone in awe.

It was a celebration filled with laughter, tears of joy, and heartfelt moments that will be cherished forever. Ashley and Jacob’s wedding was a testament to the power of love and brought together friends and family in a joyous celebration that will be remembered for a lifetime.

And now, I can’t wait to show to share a selection of photos from their wedding day!
