Eric and Ashlee's wedding was long awaited and with great expectation. It took a long time and big effort to organize it the way Ashlee envisioned her dreamed day. As you can see in the photos we believe Ashlee had everything she wanted and she let us know how amazing was for them, until the point they felt like celebrities.
The color selection chosen for the day was very vibrant, shades of pink, shades of turquoise with accents of silver, and bling. There were thousand of details all over Jellyfish, silver and shiny fabrics, crystal lamps and chandeliers, millions of flowers and petals and brilliant details everywhere.
Ashlee is a bride with very clear ideas, she knows perfectly everything she wants, not only for her wedding but in her life too she knows how to get it. She is very straight forward in every way, one can see she is a strong woman with a big heart.
Ashlee was very relaxed while getting ready with ALL of her female family and friends, they surely had a great time.
Eric is a sweet guy, charismatic and a constant smile on his face. One could see him enjoy surrounded by his family and friends all the time.
Ashlee and Eric had a first touch moment in an old Mustang, she arranged the sports car to pick up Eric from the hotel and got greatly surprised as he is a big fan of these cars. Do you think the color matching with the wedding colors as mere coincidence?
Here's the first time we saw Ashlee very emotional, they really enjoyed the first touch, it was a fun moment!
Both families are very spiritual and thankful, they would show that a few times throughout the day.
Right before walking down the aisle Ashlee surprised Eric again with a tribute to Jill Scott. She made this moment sweet and fun.
The priceless moment when the bride walks with her father towards the alter looking at the groom. Specially if the bride looks like Ashlee with such a tender look, she was radiant!
Here is the most important moment of the day.
Obviously Eric was as radiant as Ashlee watching his future wife walking down the isle.
It was an emotive ceremony, not only exchanged, vows and rings, they also had a sand ceremony mixing colored sand in a shell.
As we mention before, there was many details and "Jumping the Broom" took place right after the ceremony as the old tradition says.
After a long family session we could capture amazing shots of the couple with awesome lighting.
The perfect sun was waiting for us!
Not only the location of the wedding was a secret until the last minute, also the reception was Mardi Grass themed, enlivened with a fantastic fire show and a crazy "Crazy Hour".
Ashlee showed her dancing skills with Eric and specially with her father, which started slow and sweet and finished swinging.
Eric and his mother dance was truly emotional.
We did had the perfect sun during the day, we also had the perfect moon!
Thank you very much Ashlee and Eric for allowing us be part of such an amazing day!
