Ashley & Brit at St. Anne’s and Brakefield in Rock Hill

Several years ago I had the most awesome tome photographing Lauren & Tom’s wedding at Trinity United Methodist here in Charleston. What an incredible honor to have Lauren’s brother, Brit, ask us to photograph his wedding as well!!!

Ashley & Brit have been dating for 9 years…since about the time he went to college. Brit studied music administration and Ashley studied business. They knew they wanted to work in the music industry. So they moved to Nashville. But they’ve also toured the world with companies like Disney on Ice. Truly, theirs is a fairytale courtship if you ask me! 🙂

When Brit finally asked Ashley to be his bride, it was during a romantic getaway to Gatlinburg. But their 2-year old boxer, Stella, kept interrupting the proposal!

Eventually she said yes! And Ashley & Brit were married at St. Anne’s Catholic Church, which her Dad helped build, making the day extra special. Father Fabio’s homily was beautiful and humorous at the same time, with excellent words of wisdom for the new bride and groom.

Their elegant reception was held at the gorgeous Brakefield at Riverwalk, a new venue designed in the style of an old English Manor, overlooking the river. Everyone had an amazing time throughout the evening. Highlights included Ashley’s grandfather playing polka wedding music on his accordion!  Also, many thanks to my good friend and amazing photographer, Steve Roos, for photographing their gorgeous day with me…

Special Wishing Lanterns were set free into the starry sky as Ashley & Brit made their grand escape into the night. CONGRATULATIONS you guys! May God Bless you as you begin your new journey together!!!
