Get ready for a big-un! Ashley and Alex had such a beautiful wedding at Tamarack Resort in Donnelly, Idaho and I am one lucky girl to have gotten to be a part of it. Along with some help from Bliss Events, this girl put love into every detail and made sure that her wedding was nothing short of a “flowery goodness” DREAM!

This couple. They are 2 of the most genuine, sweet people I’ve met and even though they’re moving all the way to other side of the country- I know I’ve made life long friends. I am so happy for these guys to start their lives together while Ashley teaches and Alex serves our country.

Let’s talk about personal touches for a second. These cuties wrote their own vows with a line that I’ll never forget- “You make me smile, you make me happy, you make me pancakes” said Alex (I’m paraphrasing!) and as Ashley laughed and wiped the tear from her cheek, it was pretty obvious that they make a perfect team. Later at the reception, it was time for the first dance. They hired local legend musician Dan Costello and his band mates to perform. They were surprised with a custom song written just for them using their wedding vows — including the famous pancake line and the chorus based on a quote by Ashley, “I’m gonna marry you some day.” UNREAL! What a cool, special touch! Oh- and we can’t forget to mention her two adorable grandmas who were the flower girls!

They danced the night away and were super good sports when I proposed to have them jump in my car and drive to my secret photo location complete with about a million bugs. I promised them it would be worth it, and I’d say it was! Enjoy.
