Ashlyn and Brandon met at college while studying photography. During their semester, they traveled to Japan and feelings began to grow. Their first official date was that June, while developing film from the trip and going on a photo shoot in the mountains. Very quickly, Brandon fell in love with Ashlyn's ability to organize and she realized how beautiful and confident he makes her feel. They both share a passion for photography and traveling.
Brandon planned out the perfect proposal at the Dillon Ice Castles, but mother nature had other ideas. A blizzard rolled into the state that day, closing roads and causing dangerous conditions near the Eisenhower Tunnel. So instead, he pulled off the interstate to a trailhead and after walking a bit, he proposed to her in three feet of snow.
These two planned a spring wedding at a beautiful venue: Tapestry House by Wedgewood Weddings is truly a special place. With an amazing staff and beautiful grounds, it made the perfect backdrop for their big day. While the 5am alarm was painful, we had the best time celebrating with these two!
When asked for their favorite wedding memories, Brandon's response was: "Watching Ashlyn coming down the aisle, specifically the last few steps!" Ashlyn's favorite memory: "Brandon beat me to it! I loved coming down the aisle, it was amazing to have the doors open and see all of our favorite people there for us, plus seeing Brandon and having my dad beside me was so special."
Couple's biggest wedding planning advice: "Don't super laser focus on every detail. I was so worried about every detail looking perfect and on the day of the wedding, I didn't notice ANY of it! I'm sure it all looked lovely, but at that point, I was just happy that we were there and if some details were wrong, I didn't care at all."
Congrats, you two! I can't wait to deliver your full gallery very soon.
