Wedding ceremony at the Because Event Space.

Ashley and Michael’s wedding at Because Event Space was the model for every wedding. Throw in fun, love, laughter, family and friends gives you a pretty good idea of what their special day was like. 

Wedding at Because Event Space

I’ll start by going on record, I’ve never laughed as much while photographing a wedding as I did with Ashley and Michael’s. I mean this in a good way. These two are certainly soul mates as they complement each other in every way possible. They enjoyed their day to the fullest which is exactly how it should be on your wedding day.

After meeting these two during our initial consultation I knew I had to photograph their wedding. My gut instincts were telling me these guys would have non-stop roller coaster ride for the day. They didn’t disappoint. Along with being a part of their wedding I would also get to visit a new venue, Because Event Space. Such an awesome place to have a wedding only exceeded by their generosity of giving to charities.

The day started with Ashley and Michael each getting ready with their wedding “posse”. The getting ready shots are always fun. Those moments before the big day starts are some of the special times brides and grooms will look back upon. Ashley was keeping it going with her gals as they had their final stages of hair and makeup applied. Michael and the fellas were busy getting dressed while enjoying a few drinks. Michael was sporting some “fishy” socks.

Our couple kept it traditional and skipped the first look so Michael could take it all in at the ceremony. Of course he made a pretty grand entrance himself for the ceremony. When Michael walked down the aisle to music from “The A-Team” and “Indiana Jones” my inner fan-boy almost cried out. Best walk up music ever!!! He set the bar high, but Ashley was up to the challenge as everyone rose as she came down the aisle. Rocking a XXXX dress from XXX, she looked stunning.

Once those vows were exchanged and sealed with a kiss, it was time for the wedding reception. Ashley and Michael made their grand entrance as newly weds and kicked off the first dance. That was naturally followed by the father-daughter and mother-son dances. Toasts were made and DJ XXXX kept the tunes going for everyone to dance the afternoon away. What an amazing wedding to be a part of and such a wonderful couple.
