On the first day in August, Ashley & Bryce became Mr. & Mrs. in the most romantic wedding at Ritz Charles! The journey to their big day was met with challenges. Their original wedding venue cancelled on them only a few short weeks before their big day. Luckily, Ritz Charles had the most beautiful ballroom still available for August 1, and it ended up being the perfect backdrop for their wonderful day.
When I arrived at Ritz Charles, I was absolutely stunned at how gorgeous this ball room was. I was completely in awe, and couldn’t wait to head to the hotel to tell Ashley about how amazing everything looked. When I saw Ashley for the first time that day, her hair & makeup was already done, and she looked so beautiful. I knew she was ready to marry the love of her life. Their day was finally here, and it was going to be amazing.
Seeing Bryce on his wedding day, it was obvious that he couldn’t wait to see his bride. The look on his face when he was finally able to see her during their first look was one I’ll never forget. His cool, calm demeanor couldn’t hold back the huge smile on his face as he looked at his future.
There were many perfect moments throughout this day. Some of my favorites included the heartfelt first look with Ashley’s father, Ashley & Bryce reading letters around a door, and Ashley surprising her parents with dances that she recorded her beautiful voice singing to.
Yet again, this wedding reminded me just how truly lucky I am to be a wedding photographer. This wedding was filled with love, family, and God’s presence was so evident the entire day. I hope Ashley & Bryce look at these images and are brought right back to this day.
