Just recently, Ashley and Adam celebrated their first anniversary! So here I am celebrating with them, toasting to such an awesome couple! Sometimes people come into your life in strange ways … Ashley and Adam came to me after a difficult situation and from that first meeting I felt such a bond with them. Just proves that sometimes what seems like something awful can turn out to be a nudge toward something really great. I’m so glad I got to be there for their wedding!

I have a TON of favorites from this wedding, so get ready over the next few days to see lots of emotion, pretty flowers, adorable details, and even a wedding dog!

Let’s start where they got ready, at the Le Meridien Atlanta. One thing I’m most struck by when I look at this wedding is the soft pink, antique-feel florals.

In the bride’s suite, the girls had fun. The flower girls whispering secrets, bridesmaids in their gorgeous matching robes, BLEND Beauty group giving Ashley a gorgeous old-Hollywood look. Lots of laughter.

Meanwhile, Adam was hanging with his buds and tying the perfect tie. Turns out he’s kind of a tie afficionado, and knows all kind of cool, stylish ways to tie them. I kinda think he should start a You Tube tie school for other grooms.

They each took such great care to write beautiful vows for the ceremony.

And their gifts for each other were equally thoughtful. It was such a joy to see the effort they put into making the gifts meaningful and personal!

We were able to do a few images at the Le Meridien before we headed over to the ceremony. I love that their dog was the ring bearer!
