Ashley + Jim: Married!

Anyone who follows me on facebook may have noticed that it was taking me a while to pick my favorites on this wedding. Ashley and Jim had a beautiful fall wedding on November 6th, 2010. I remember when I met with Ashley initially, I was pretty booked for 2010...but there was something about the way she described her big day, and her photography preferences, that made me think..."I want to shoot this wedding"!

Their ceremony took place at the Graham Chapel on Washington University's campus...it's a pretty neat place...



Chantel caught these moments before Ashley and her father came down the aisle...






Ashley was simply stunning. The gown, the makeup, the hair, just...everything!


And Jim was no slouch!


Her peacock feather theme was interspersed throughout the day's details, without being too much...and Ashley made those clutches!

I never get to shoot over at Wash U...their campus is so perfect!





Her dress was so floaty and ethereal...

At one point during the day, Chantel mentioned..."she just really loves him...you can tell by the way she looks at him". She is so right!

The girls had some fun...
....and we fit in our "urban" portraits :)


RAWR.




The reception was at Windows on Washington...I always think this is a pretty cool city spot for a reception...

So, I'm reading through this post going "I know that bride from somewhere." Oddly enough, I was the planner for the wedding up on 8, and I was hanging out in the lobby where Ashley and Jim were greeting guests. (And, after reading Lisa's comment, too. Her and I were on 8). Gorgeous photos btw!

Brit and Lisa...I wish I would have seen you guys! I have tunnel-vision on wedding days and often don't notice what's going on around me :)
