Elegant Blue Wedding

Ashlyn and Ryan lived down the street from each other and had gone to the same school for years until they finally met!


It wasn’t until they both attended Auburn University that they actually met. A few years later Ryan planned the sweetest surprise proposal. It began with Ashlyn’s roommates picking her up and not telling where they were going. They ended up driving her to “The Big Red Barn” in Auburn where Ryan was outside waiting for her with his dog Ruger. He had a picnic, flowers, a bible with her soon to be name on it, and a sign that read: “Will you marry us?” hanging around Ruger’s neck. After many tears of joy, Ashlyn was able to say yes!


The style that Ashlyn had dreamed of for her wedding was dainty and elegant. Their southern church wedding had the right amount of elegant touches from their flowers to the bridesmaid’s icy blue dresses. The floral arrangements were mainly made up of white roses with a few touches of blues and greens to add a light and airy tone to them. The blue bridesmaid’s dresses complemented Ashlyn’s dress perfectly and matched the flowers and the rest of the décor.


Family is very important to these two and they wanted to incorporate their family into their wedding day whenever possible. Ryan’s wedding band had belonged to his late grandfather. When Ashlyn went to place it on his finger it fit perfectly! The couple used this as a sweet reminder of Ryan’s grandfather that he can always carry with him. The white handkerchief that Ashlyn held onto during her wedding day was given to her from her grandmother and was used as her something old and something blue.


Ryan and Ashlyn decided to splurge on their photographer because they wanted to be able to look back on their wedding pictures and remember their special day for years to come. They also splurged on their band. It was important to them that all of their guests have a good time and live entertainment is the best way to get everyone out on the dance floor!
