Ashley and Ryan: Crystal Gardens Howell

I am finally getting back to making up the blog posts I missed the last half of the wedding season and I am so excited to kick off this week’s Throwback Thursday with Ashley and Ryan!

I first met them through a contest through the Livonia Rogers and Hollands’ Bridal show and I am *so* excited they won my free engagement session!! We were really made for each other! 2015-01-08_0007 2015-01-08_0006

2015-01-08_0001The entire day was beautiful and full of fun, laughter and friends!  Ashley’s parents were very missed at their wedding but honored in beautiful ways! 2015-01-08_0002The open air chapel was just beautiful and it was a great August day for their wedding!! (In fact… on this -25 degree wind chill day I am aching for an August day!) 2015-01-08_0003Crystal Gardens has room for multiple weddings to occur at the same time but the staff does a magnificent job making each couple feel as if they are the only ones the entire day! 2015-01-08_0004 2015-01-08_0005  We didn’t venture off site for pictures but due to fantastic weather and a great Bridal Party (and not to mention some awesome chemistry with the Ashley and Ryan!) we had an amazing time!  2015-01-08_0008 2015-01-08_0009These two are just the best!!! And you can see their love and their personalities just radiating! 2015-01-08_0010The best part of their day was how ready they were to just CELEBRATE! The entire bridal party, all of the guests and definitely Ryan and Ashley spent the entire day looking for fun ways to celebrate their love and it really showed!  2015-01-08_0011 2015-01-08_0012 2015-01-08_0013Thank you guys for letting me photograph your day!  Your story, love and laughter will forever be a favorite day of mine!!! I love fun couples that become friends!! ❤
