ASHFORD ESTATE WEDDING: BRIANNA + PHILLIP

Joyful Ashford Estate Wedding

The sunny July skies were the perfect backdrop to Brianna and Phillip’s gorgeous Ashford Estate wedding! This sweet couple exchanged vows in a beautiful open air chapel and enjoyed their first minutes as a married couple exploring the picturesque gardens of the estate. The day was filled with tears of joy and so many memorable moments! I loved being a part of Brianna and Phillip’s wedding day and am so excited to share some of my favorite photos!

Getting Ready Photos

Every detail of Brianna and Phillip’s wedding was so thoughtfully curated. The cream and blush flowers peeked out of cascading greenery designed by Twisted Willow Flowers. Brianna’s bridesmaids wore the loveliest floral dresses by Show Me Your Mumu and all exploded in joy when Brianna walked out onto the balcony in her wedding gown. Meanwhile, Phillip and his groomsmen toasted to the special day, all dashing in cobalt blue suits. After a morning full of anticipation, the couple made their way to the lovely gardens for their first look!

Sweetest First Look

Brianna and Phillip shared the sweetest wedding first look on the gorgeous tree lined path at the Ashford Estate. Neither of them could stop smiling as they soaked in their wedding day joy! I loved that Brianna and Phillip got this special time to themselves before their wedding ceremony!

Ashford Estate Wedding Portraits

After their first look, Brianna and Phillip walked along the shady path together while I captured more wedding day portraits. They were soon joined by a very special furry friend: their cute dog Graham! Graham looked adorable with his greenery garland and was so good at posing for photos. Brianna and Phillip joined their bridal party for some fun group shots before making their way to their Ashford Estate wedding ceremony!

Emotional Ashford Estate Wedding Ceremony

The Ashford Estate’s open air chapel was the perfect spot for this beautiful ceremony. Gorgeous floral chandeliers and garlands covered the room. Creamy white petals were scattered along the aisle leading to a rustic brick fireplace adorned with glowing candles, lanterns, and more dreamy flowers.
One of my favorite moments had to be when Brianna was getting ready to walk down the aisle. Phillip couldn’t help but wipe away many tears at the anticipation of seeing his beautiful bride. As soon as the music started playing for Brianna’s walk with her father, Phillip and his sisters started crying tears of joy. Almost all of the guests were wiping tears as Brianna joined Phillip. It was such a beautifully emotional moment followed by a heartfelt ceremony.

After the ceremony, Brianna and Phillip gathered all of their friends and family to capture a fun group photo! It was such a joy to see all of their loved ones in one photo. As their guests headed to a fun summer indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, Brianna and Phillip snuck away for some more Ashford Estate wedding photos. I love they both traded in their formal footwear for more comfortable kicks before making their way to the dance floor!

Fun-Filled Ashford Estate Wedding Reception

Brianna and Phillip’s Ashford Estate wedding reception was absolutely stunning! The soaring ceilings and flowing white linens made the room so light and airy. More incredible florals covered the tables and even adorned the wedding cake! Brianna and Phillip entered the room to excited cheers and shared the sweetest first dance. Phillip’s dance with his two sisters and Brianna’s dance with her father were both filled with emotion, happy tears, and a deep rooted joy. In the midst of the celebrations, Brianna and Phillip snuck away to enjoy the soft blues of the dusk sky. They shared a kiss before joining hands and returning to their celebration to dance the night away with their family and friends!
