Our beautiful cousin Sam is a married woman!! She had been dreaming of this day for so long and we were so excited to be able to document it for her. It was such a sweet and intimate day with only a few family members present which made it so personal and special. As we mentioned in their engagement blog post (See it here!), Ash is from Australia so his brother and uncle flew over for the special day and the rest of his family was able to watch the day live over the internet. The ceremony was so precious and had us all in tears as Sam and Ash poured out their hearts to each other as they read their handwritten vows. Each of them described their personal experience of finally meeting each other in person after being in separate countries for the beginning portion of their relationship, and how they had perfectly fulfilled all of each others hopes and dreams in a spouse and best friend. Plus the quaint little garden where they said “I do” was a dream in and of itself, so as their friends and as their photographers, we couldn’t have been happier :)
In addition to the day being so sweet, it was also absolutely beautiful! The leaves were just beginning to change to their gorgeous autumn colors, and so we were able to get some stunning photographs! Plus the wedding was held at the classically romantic Adsmore in Princeton, so the entire day had a wonderful vintage feel to it and perfectly accentuated the victorian travel theme of the wedding day! I mean how adorable is their wedding cake? The map details were perfect- not the mention it was also delicious :)
After a delicious meal and cake, it began to rain a little (which Sam was very positive about and just repeated that it was good luck!!) we all headed inside to finish up the evening with some dancing and lots of laughing! It was a great ending to a beautiful day, and we were so thrilled to be a part of it.
Sam and Ash, we love you guys so much and are so happy for you all to begin this new chapter in your lives! You two are clearly meant for one another, and it is so obvious that you make each other happier than you’ve ever been. We pray for so many blessings in your life together, and that God takes your marriage to more wonderful places than you ever could have dreamed :)
