Friday was an absolutely stunning day for Ashley & Nathan’s winter wedding. The sun was bright and the sky was blue and Ashley and Nathan were ready to say yes to spending the rest of their lives together. We arrived at Calvary Church in the early afternoon and prepared for their First Look. They chose to see each other before the ceremony so they could pray together, calm some nerves and get some pictures while we still had daylight. And it was a beautiful moment between them <3
They shared their vows, exchanged rings and tied their lives together in the wedding chapel at Calvary. It was already dark as they were greeted with bubbles exiting the church and heading for their limo to the Eden Resort for their reception. Before they left they along with their wedding party and their parents released Chinese Lanterns into the night sky. It was gorgeous and the sky was so clear we could still see them as everyone left for the reception.
I have to say that Ashley & Nathan’s wedding was a perfect end to a very busy year. They are both so relaxed and loving and that truly came through in their special day.

Although I love this one, I’m not a fan of holly trees…..they hurt! But a little pain is ok for a great pic of their stunning rings ;)
Time to say ‘I Do’.
Isn’t the chapel pretty?
