ashley&andrew {wedding} heather's glen, conroe, texas

I can honestly tell you that Ashley has been planning her wedding since she was a little girl. I know this, because I have known her her entire life & very often heard her talk about her future wedding. She was all smiles the entire day. While Ashley is not a blood relative to me, she may as well be, so it was such an honor to document her & Andrew's special day.

The day started at the hotel where Scarlett O'Hara faces were practiced in the mirror...

Ashley's sister Amanda revealed the root of Ashley's obsession with the color purple: a certain beloved dinosaur named Barney. Amanda successfully got an entire room of adults to sing the Barney song, a feat she was very proud of.

Ashley & Andrew met on the intramural football field, thus throwing the garter on a football made complete sense. It's also a stupendous way to get the guys excited about catching the garter.
