Wedding Spotlight: Ashley & Bobby

Ashley and Bobby’s country chic fall wedding took place on September 18, 2010. An absolute pleasure to work with, this down-to-earth couple incorporated many personal elements into their wedding day, reflecting their personalities and their strong family bond.

The ceremony and reception took place at Ashley’s family’s residence, located on a sprawling countryside property. The ceremony was setup in the back of the property, with the tented reception taking place towards the front. Hand carved signs, created by the bride’s father, were placed throughout the grounds, directing guests and furry friends.

After the ceremony was over, guests were invited to mingle at the cocktail reception just outside the tent, while Serge from Photografika took Ashley and Bobby’s wedding photos. The guests’ place cards were hung with clothespins between two trees, located beside the treasure chest of well wishes from the guests.
McLean-Sherwood Party Rental provided all rented items for the reception: the tent, tables, linens, chairs, and dance floor. While the bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpiece flowers were provided by Devine Design, Ashley’s father carved each of the vases himself from trees found on his property. Ashley’s mother put together a photo collage, which sat on the gift table, and was a lovely surprise for the bride and groom when they walked into the tent. The children in attendance were also surprised to find gift bags filled with toys and activities for them at each table. It is very clear to us that family means a lot to this newly wedded couple.

In order for each table to get in line for the buffet dinner, provided by Silver Thyme Catering, the MCs had the guests play a trivia game to determine who would go first, second, third, etc. We give kudos to the MCs for being able to decipher between all the tables shouting out their answers. After every last morsel of food was gone, the sweets table was put out. The wedding cake, which was made by a close friend of Ashley’s Grandmother, looked beautiful and tasted delicious.

Ashley and Bobby hosted a wedding with a lot of personal touches for all their friends and family to remember forever and always. We hope they had fun on their European honeymoon!
