Ashley and Justin’s “meeting” story is one for the record books! Even though they went to the same college in the same city, often sitting in the same class, they didn’t actually meet until a study abroad program took them all the way to China and Japan. Although they spent a lot of time together on the trip, it wasn’t until March 11, 2011 when they really bonded. On that day, their group was in China when they experienced the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. When they returned to the states, they started dating “officially” and sealed the deal with a sunset proposal two years later.
With Kristen Weaver Photography behind the lens, Ashley and Justin’s wedding was celebrated by their family and friends at an Estate on the Halifax in Daytona. Together, they said their vows with daughter Addy (who also did a super special reading during the ceremony for them!) and danced the night away to Phase5 Band who came over from the west coast of Florida
Ashley’s style was the perfect fit for the girls at An Affair to Remember, who designed and planned their stunning event! Ashley wore an open-back Monique Lhuillier gown with an attached tulle train and her bridesmaids wore coral Nicole Miller bridesmaids gowns. The bouquets were stunning with bright pops of coral, pink, salmon and orange! And Addy’s Flower Girl gown was a heart-back dress with mixed buttons and an attached large tulle cupcake skirt.
Thanks for stopping by!
