ashley + samuel in their backyard

Ashley knew she wanted to marry Sam in the backyard of her grandparents’ home where she spent a lot of her childhood. She remembered climbing the giant tree in the front yard with her siblings – now the spot where she shared a first look with Sam. Their day was full of personal touches from Ashley’s bouquet made by her older sister to Sam’s Smith Tartan kilt. Their two dogs – Alex and Lady – served as honorary member of the wedding party. Ashley wore not only her mother’s garter, but also her grandmother’s. She even switched into an updated version of her mom’s old wedding dress for the reception! It’s details like these that truly add romance and meaning to a wedding day.
