Ashley & Marc live in California, so we didn’t get the opportunity to meet in person until their wedding day, but I could tell from phone calls and emails that they had a great vibe and I was really excited to be their photographer! When I arrived to photograph the ladies getting ready Ashley greeted me as warmly as if I was an old friend, and I felt so welcomed and thankful to be working surrounded by such sweet people!
They tied the knot on what turned out to be a beautiful Sunday afternoon (despite some early rain showers) overlooking Canandaigua Lake on Bristol Harbour Resort’s back lawn. I’ve written on my blog before about how much I love this view, and it’s hard to imagine a more beautiful setting to promise forever to the love of your life! The ceremony was short and VERY sweet, and Ashley & Marc’s smiles after they were pronounced husband and wife couldn’t have been bigger!
Between the ballroom and the outdoor bar & patio, Ashley and Marc spent the rest of the celebrations mingling with their guests and dancing the night away (and thankfully letting me steal them away for a few times for photos with this spectacular view and sunset)! Ashley & Marc clearly love their friends and family deeply, and it’s obvious that the love goes both ways. There was SO much joy in the air and the speeches given by their siblings and best friends were some of the best that I’ve ever heard; emotional, hilarious at times, and completely heartfelt. If anyone wasn’t sure how special they are, the speeches said it all. I feel very lucky to get to photograph couples as kind, gracious, and in love with these two and I hope you enjoy this little collection of some of my favorite images from their wedding day!
