Ashley was a beautiful bride, wearing a spectacular dress that fit her perfectly and featured a romantic ruffle cascading down the skirt. She added a pop of color to the gown by adding pretty purple shoes! Colorful shoes are a fun, flirty way to add a little personality into the overall style. Her bridesmaids all wore short, black dresses in various styles and brightened up the look with yellow heels.

The groomsmen also added yellow socks to their ensemble to keep the look fun and in sync with the bridesmaids.

Together, Ashley and Doug looked so happy and in love – their day was truly amazing! The ceremony was held in a room with wooden beams and brick, warmed up with hanging paper lanterns and twinkling lights. Candle and flower petal arrangements decorated the aisle and offered the perfect romantic glow! Hand painted signs decorated the space and provided a personal touch.
