Ashley & Ryan: Classic Southern Romance

I spent one of the most of beautiful days of this fall photographing Ashley and Ryan’s wedding at Carnton Plantation. It was full of traditional southern charm, and it was breathtaking! Set in front of the historic Osage orange tree at sunset, friends and family listened and laughed to stories from Ashley and Ryan’s relationship and watched the two perform a sand ceremony. With the help of Kelly from Perfectly Placed, the couple had a lot of special touches that made their wedding personal and kept with the southern theme. I loved the mason jars that served as drinking glasses, the flowers in Ashley’s hair and travel-themed centerpieces. But by far my favorite thing was the mac-&-cheese bar - complete with ham, onions, mushrooms and pretty much anything else you could think of! With Carnton lit in the background, everyone danced up until the moment before the couple’s exit. What a fun group! Special thanks goes out to Kerri Crutchfield for assisting me and just being awesome to work with!
