Jake and Ashley met at the wedding of their two best friends. Ashley was one of the bridesmaids and Jake was one of the groomsmen. They were “paired together” as the single and tall ones to walk down the aisle together. They hit it off and started the long distance relationship between Springfield, MO and Houston, TX. After many flights and packed weekend adventures, Ashley moved to Springfield in Jan of 2012 with Jake. I always love hearing the about the path that leads my couple to their wedding day. Who would have thought that something as simple as height could match two people?!
I joined them and their wedding party downtown at the beautiful Renaissance Hotel in Denver. I loved that we had a chance to stop off at the local bar for a beer before we headed out into town. Best idea for pre wedding photos with wedding party ever! We then made the trek down to Arrowhead Golf Club where they tied the knot and partied down with friends and family! I saw one of the most unique ways to cut a cake at their reception. Jake made a deal with Ashley that the one piece of input he was allowed was on how they cut their wedding cake. See for yourself what he chose to use! My other favorite part of the day was learning how special Ashley’s veil was to the family. It is over 100 years old and has been worn by 21 brides in the family over the generations. The veil is now on it’s way to France to be worn again this August. Pretty incredible, right?
I’m so happy for you Ashley and Jake. Thanks for welcoming me into your family. I’m sad that you guys don’t live in Colorado, I want to see more of your beautiful faces! Congrats! –Ryan
