Erik and Ashley: Wedding

On Saturday I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding for a friend at church. It's probably more accurate to say that I'm friends with Ashley's mom, but Ashley and I have done our share of visiting together, especially as her wedding day was drawing near.

Ashley and Erik have dated for years. Erik is away at A-school right now - a few hours away - and is preparing to receive his orders come this fall. They wanted to be sure to fit in a wedding before his orders come, especially if he winds up being sent overseas, so a quick wedding was planned.

The weather was beautiful, the decor was simple yet elegant, and the day was filled with emotions.

I was SO excited when Ashley and Erik wanted to spend some extra time in the evening for pictures of just the two of them!

Ashley and Erik, thank you for allowing me (and Daniel) to be a part of your wedding day. We had a great time and pray that your lives will be filled with joy and happiness!

How sweet (and beautiful)! In some photos, she looks a little bit like Crystal (that's a good thing). :)
