Ashley + Judson wedding {by kate}

So we have had a LOT of rain this year.  A lot.  Truly more rainy wedding days than I have ever had in a single season… and this wedding day was no exception to that but Ashley and Judson did not let it get them down at all.  From the downpours as we left the hotel, to getting trapped under the arches at Wash U to ‘wait it out’ and then again with the dedicated team of umbrella holders that got Ashley into the chapel without getting soaked…. they smiled through it all and it was a beautiful day, rain and all.  So many wonderful vendors teamed up to contribute their talents and it really came together perfectly.  We will begin with the sparkly (yet still practical!) shoes and tiered ruffle gown.

Thanks to Katie Saeger of Simply and Forever for bringing me the sparkle linen for a few photos!  It made an extra shiny ring shot!

I am not sure what sporting event is taking place here, just funny.

Judson’s reaction to the fact that the ladies ran just a wee little bit late- he does not look surprised.  Perhaps Ashley runs on her own clock like I do… HA!
