Ashley wore a stunning drop waist ballgown by Allure Bridals on her special day and could not have looked more beautiful!

She married the love of her life Brian in a lovely August ceremony at Aberdeen Manor.

Her photographer, Katherine Murray Photography, did such a beautiful job capturing the couple's special day! Her florist, DIxon's Florist also did a fab job with her absolutely gorgeous bouquet!

We have an obsession with eucalyptus at SBB and are living for the touches of it throughout the arrangement! Such a pretty accent to the classic white roses.

After the ceremony, guests walked from the chapel to the reception hall where a truly magical scene awaited them. The details, from the globe guestbook to the crystal centerpieces to the SUSPENDED CAKE {umm yeah, maybe our fav detail} were simply perfect!

Ashley and Brian's proposal story is one for the books! It all started on a dream vacation across the pond...

"In May of 2016, Brian and I went on a 2 week vacation to Donegal, Ireland where he's from. It's the most magical place I've ever been to. My one request was that he take me to a castle while we were there. One of the days we went to Glenveagh National Park, which houses Glenveagh Castle. We were walking through the rose gardens and Brian asked me to go to the gazebo with him to check out the view, which was spectacular. We're up on a hill with the best view of the castle and I turn around and there Brian is on one knee. The rest is history."

STOP it! So romantic!! Was Ashley expecting him to pop the question?

"It was a complete surprise, I had no idea it was coming! He had asked my parents for permission to marry me and they kept it a secret all along."

Fast forward to wedding planning. What was Ashley's favorite and least favorite part of the process?

"My favorite part of the planning process was that we as a couple planned all of the details together. Our favorite thing to do was definitely the cake tasting. It was amazing! Our least favorite part was tracking down last minute RSVPers!"

Finally it was time for the big day!  Ashley has a very specific moment from the day that she will always remember!

"My favorite moment of our wedding day was taking a minute with Brian outside right after the ceremony. Just being able to have that private moment by ourselves to take it all in for a few minutes was awesome!"

Any advice for future brides?

"My biggest takeaway from all of this was to not stress over the small details. If something doesn't come out as planned, none of your guests will even notice. Enjoy every moment, you'll blink and your entire day is over."
