Mount Vernon, Ohio / Columbus, Ohio Wedding Photographer || The Brookshire – Delaware, Ohio: Mr + Mrs Leslie

Ryan and Ashlee are the sweetest couple. Ryan could become friends with anyone he meets and Ashlee will always greet you with a kind smile. Upon arriving to their venue at The Brookshire, I was excited to see Ashlee’s gown and get her all ready for her first look!

Ashlee said this about choosing her beautiful Maggie Sottero gown that I absolutely adored:
‘My dress and belt are from Twirl in Kenton, Ohio. The dress was designed by Maggie Sottero and actually was not my absolute favorite at first because I had always envisioned myself in something different. My mom picked it out so I tried it on for her. One of the women from the bridal shop pinned a different belt over the original and it was exactly what I wanted!’

I LOVED Ashlee and Ryan’s decor. I loved how classic yet a little rustic it was. It really tied the whole day together. Events Held Dear helped Ashlee’s vision come to life. Ashlee said, ‘Two AMAZING women that I grew up with, Leda and Sam, own a business called Events Held Dear here in Columbus. They rent out wedding decorations, create custom pieces, and style events for you. I went through their inventory and talked to them about what I liked and they did an absolutely wonderful job at bringing my vision to life and making the decorations perfect for our wedding.’

Now that the party is over Ashlee says ‘We will be celebrating our 6 year “date-iversary” next weekend and hope to buy our first home within the next year. In January, we are going to be Aunt Ashlee and Uncle Ryan for the first time so we are very much looking forward to that as well! We are so excited to be on this new journey together as husband and wife and seeing what else life has in store for us!’ What was once glances and flirting at a party, has lead to their happily ever after.

Because the most unexpected moments may be the ones that change your life forever ❤
