When we first met with Jared and Ashley, we were delighted by how much these two were truly made for each other! Their first date was at a Starbucks, and Jared proposed to Ashley in a pumpkin patch last Fall - How cute is that?! Most importantly, these two share their faith in Christ and are dedicated to living out their marriage God's way.
Their wedding day beautifully incorporated details sentimental to both them and their families - The church, the family barn, the "getaway car", the Bride's ring with heirloom family elements, the flowers and decor put together by the Bride's mom, all had special meaning.
The fun started with a Fiesta rehearsal dinner the night before their big day, hosted by Jared's wonderful parents!
The next day was a whirlwind of anticipation and excitement, as Ashley got ready at her parent's home and Jared got ready at the church.
They both had special gifts to give to each other - a watch for him, and a personalized Bible for her.
When everyone was ready to go, we got to capture the father of the bride's first look of his daughter as well as the groom's first look of his bride.
Then off to Valley Fourth Memorial Church we went for Jared and Ashley's ceremony!
One special element of the marriage ceremony was the incorporation of a beautiful tradition: God's Knot - Cord of Three Strands. "A cord of three strands is not easily broken" - Eccl 4:12. This tradition symbolizes the importance of God's influence in a strong marriage.
They made their getaway to the reception in Grandpa's Buick - a classic that has been a part of the Bride's family for decades!
