This was the first time we had photographed anything at the beautiful Waterstone Venue, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Ashlyn and Colby are the sweetest couple, and it so evident in how they interact! You can hear it in the stories that their best friends and family shared about them throughout the day. They have an undeniable love for one another, which even made this rainy, misty wedding day be incredibly vibrant and joyful!

We showed up on the wedding day with mostly cloudy skies and a huge chance of rain about an hour before their ceremony was supposed to take place. We all prayed that the rain would dissipate and the sun would pop out! That didn’t happen. Right as their ceremony was about to take place, the rain came pouring down. Even though the vendor team was full of nerves about how to navigate this, Ashlyn was sure she wanted her ceremony outdoors rain or shine at this amazing venue. Thankfully after waiting 30 extra minutes, the rain stopped, and they had a beautiful outdoor ceremony!

Even though the sun never fully popped out, it never rained again that evening! Talk about a miracle!! We were able to get every single image done before they entered into their reception! Now they were able to dance the night away, and enjoy time with their friends and family!

What an honor to be the ones to capture their day!! Steven and I loved getting to celebrate alongside of them and document their love!! Enjoy just a few of my favorites!
