There are SO many things I love about shooting weddings, but one of my favorites is the getting ready process. I had the honor of capturing the roller coaster of emotions before Ashley & Justin said their vows. The nerves, excitement, tears of joy and laughter...there was so much love in one room. Generations of family huddled in the bridal suite as they perfected their curls and make up. Ashley and Justin exchanged gifts before the wedding ceremony, and Justin's gift to Ashley gave us all a real glimpse of their relationship with each other..."Taco Tuesdays 4 eva". You can tell he put a lot of thought and love into this gift for her, and I saw Ashley fall even more in love with the man she was about to walk down the aisle to and say, "I do!" I mean, who wouldn't want to vow to do Taco Tuesdays FOREVER?!
Normally, I would wait and do a blog of all wedding photos, but I just couldn't wait. So here's a glimpse at the Ashcraft "Before the Vows".
