I have known Sean and Ashley for years, after meeting through a mutual friend. So of course I was honored when they asked me to photograph their intimate country wedding, held at a friend’s farm in Fort St. John. It seemed only fitting that their ceremony included horse drawn covered wagons, cowboy boots and wheat grass. The rustic feel of their wedding was complimented by the handmade elements that Sean and Ashley created themselves, including the benches and tables for their guests. They even said “I Do” under a gorgeous alter they built themselves. Ashley and Sean’s three sons, Aiden, Jaxon and Tucker were absolutely adorable in their red suspenders and cowboy boots. Ashley was a gorgeous bride, and we were able to get some shots of her with her groom around the farm. Their love for one another is obvious, and makes everyone around them smile.
And once the party started, the barn doors were drawn providing the perfect frame against a backdrop of twinkle lights. It was truly magical, a beautiful gathering of family and close friends to celebrate Sean and Ashley.
I have never been as surprised at a wedding as I was when I realized that the beautiful song Ashley was walking down the aisle to was being sung by Ashley herself. Being escorted down the aisle by her sons, Ashley sang Feels Like Home. It was so moving that it literally took my breathe away and I almost forgot to keep taking pictures! And it moved her groom to tears. Because of this, I knew that I had to do something special to share the images from Sean and Ashley’s wedding. So please enjoy some of my favorite images from Sean and Ashley’s day to the song, Feels Like Home. Don’t forget to share some love with the newlyweds and leave a comment!
