It all started in High School for Ashly & Blaine. They met in their small town of Yerington, NV, and were inseparable from the start. They have been through lots of amazing highs and equally emotional lows, but they have made it through it all together, and better in the end as a couple!
Ashly and Blaine's wedding day was just so special. The typical rainy late summer afternoons seemed to know that it was an important day and took a day off, adding just enough clouds in the sky to make some pretty pictures! The celebration took place at Blaine's family Ranch in Yerington, NV and it was so special to be able to celebrate in such a beautiful place that is so important and personal.
Surrounded by her closest friends and family, they spent the morning getting ready with each other at the Ranch and looking forward to all the special things that were in store for the rest of the day.
The day was filled with special moments just like how Ashly's bridesmaids had her closest friends and family write letters to her for her to read. Tears streamed down her face as she read the words of encouragement and love and support! And Ashly's Grandma took the time to say a prayer with her before the ceremony.
The girls all had their cowboy boots with their rust colored bridesmaid dresses that complimented the Rustic Country Wedding theme perfectly. And of course, Ashly was absolutely radiant in her beautiful lace wedding gown.
Blaine had his work cut out for him with all the big projects he took on himself in preparation for the wedding too! Build a dance floor with hand strung lights and a support structure (CHECK!), build a gazillion tents so everyone has shade to enjoy (CHECK!), design and create the HUGE (and sturdy!) Barnwood Altar and doors for Ashly to walk through at the ceremony (CHECK!) -- and a million other things he and his friends and family did to transform the typical empty field into such a awe-inspiring wedding celebration! (I was SO impressed!)
The ceremony was simply perfect (including the crying ring bearer!). Some tears, some laughs, and lots of love being radiated from everyone who attended. Ashly and Blaine both wrote their own vows to each other and they were such amazing, humorous, realistic and loving words. You could tangibly feel the love and history that they have together, and the excitement and commitment that they have for their future as husband and wife. It was so special!
Ashly and Blaine,
You did it! You are finally Mrs & Mrs! I'm so incredibly excited for you two to live and love each other even more in this new chapter in your lives! I cannot wait to see where life takes you next, and I feel so honored to have been asked to be a part of your special day! Congratulations!!
