When I first met Ashley & David, this Lehigh Valley wedding photographer fell in love with them right away! Between Ashley’s bubbly personality and David’s chill, laid-back attitude, they are just downright wonderful to spend time with! But what is most incredible about this pair is the obvious love they have for their friends, family, and most especially for each other.
Ashley & David met in high school while both were attending Parkettes Gymnastics. Before long, they were dating, and shared a new year’s kiss on January 1, 2016. They did the long-distance thing while in college, David away at Stanford and Ashley at Arizona State. They, and everyone around them, knew they were meant for each from the very beginning. Aw! And just a few years later, David was down on one knee asking Ashley to be his forever on a trip to Annapolis. I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to document their wedding day, and now I can’t wait to share all the highlights with you!
From the time Ashley spent getting ready with her best friends to the moment she busted through the doors as they were announced Mr & Mrs, Ashley was absolutely glowing. And when she walked down the aisle in her beautiful Allure Bridals ball gown with the most adorable bow, no one could take their eyes off of her. Especially David. The way he held her close during their first dance to Thank God by Kane Brown made you believe in that Disney kind of happily ever after!
One of the truest joys, though, is preserving that one moment the bride and groom are most excited for. Ashley and David couldn’t wait for their first touch! They chose to do a first touch and read their vows to each other privately, before the wedding. And what a moment!! Moments like these are the ones I can’t wait to photograph and never forget.
As Ashley and David celebrated the best day of their lives with the people they loved most, I couldn’t help but share in their joy as I clicked away with my camera! Congratulations, Mr & Mrs Jessen, on your new life together, and I can’t wait to hang out with you again soon!
