Ashley and Peyton were married on a beautiful late August day at The Bird House at Mountain View Event Center in Inman, SC. I was so honored to be a small part of their day and help capture their memories in photos for them. I had enjoyed getting to know them both through their engagement session last Spring, as well as Ashley’s Bridal Session a few weeks before the wedding. When I arrived on the wedding day, the girls were busy with their final touches and helping Ashley get into her wedding dress.
The guys and Peyton were downstairs in a different room starting to get ready as well for the big day.
Ashley and Peyton had decided on a traditional timeline, and neither of them wanted to see each other before she walked down the aisle. So, we waited to do all photos with the bride until after the ceremony. But we were able to fit in some fun groomsmen photos before the ceremony!
Ashley and Peyton’s adorable son, Ashton, was also a big part of their wedding day, and I caught some pictures of him throughout the day when I could!
Ashton was the ring bearer and his cousin was the flower girl . . . how cute are they??!!
Right before it was time for the ceremony to start, Ashley’s bridesmaids had a sweet time of prayer for her and her upcoming marriage. What a beautiful moment to witness!
And then it was time for the ceremony to begin!
Right before walking Ashley down the aisle, she and her father shared a private moment where he got to see her for the first time in her wedding dress too.
The ceremony continued with Peyton seeing Ashley for the first time too, as she walked down the aisle, and it was apparent that his breath was definitely taken away by the sight of her! The ceremony was beautiful, with both Ashley and Peyton reading their own vows they had written to one another.
After the ceremony was over, we finished with wedding party and family photos while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.
Then it was time to enter the reception and for the couple to share in their first dance as husband and wife!
Right before sunset, I was able to take Ashley and Peyton away for some bride and groom portraits. We hadn’t done any earlier in the day, so this was our chance to get them some beautiful couple photos from their wedding day. It was a special time for them just to enjoy being with each other on their wedding day too!
Then it was back into the reception to cut their cake and enjoy more dancing and spending time with their family and friends who had come to help them celebrate their special day!
It was a gorgeous wedding day for Peyton and Ashley, and I hope that they enjoy many, many happy years looking back on their memories from this day and reliving it through photos! Congratulations to a great couple!!
