Wedding Story: Ashley and Forrest

I have been getting texts, wallposts, messages, etc since this wedding was over that various people COULD NOT WAIT for me to post this blog. Like they wanted me to post it THE SECOND THE WEDDING ENDED. OH THE PRESSURE!! I don't blame them one bit. Ashley and I go back... wwaaaaaayyy back. I grew up with Ashley and her sweet family. She is a year younger than me so I was Ashley #1 and she was Ashley #2. Then I had a little sister named Amanda... and several years later SHE had a little sister named Amanda. Ashley has been an avid fan of the blog since I started it so it is super exciting that I get to feature her love story on here today. Ashley and Forrest's wedding day was incredibly gorgeous in the mountains and full of people who deeply love them... and have a blast doing it.

Their ceremony was full of just the right balance of moments that made everyone cry (I heard the sniffles around the room) and made everyone giggle.

I LOVE the motion of the girls running down the aisle once the ceremony was over...

If your reception is in a barn, you better wear red cowgirl boots.

Ashley's Dad had everyone in tears with his sweet words. Mr. Tugman is one of the most gentle, loving men I have ever met-- I don't meet many men that I would BEGIN to describe this way. He was truly meant to be the father of three girls.

The cakes? GORGEOUS. They were simple but OH SO classy and chic.
Two pears on the top layer? "The Perfect Pear", Ashley said :)

Oh where to begin with this one.
Here I am with girls that I was in youth group, some of them in PRESCHOOL with at the church we all grew up at together. So much history here. So much love.

Ashley and Forrest: It was a gift to me to be able to be alongside of you on your wedding day. It was so important to me that all the parts of your day were covered in a loving way. I can not wait for you to see the rest! SO MUCH LOVE!
