A Blush & Gold Handcrafted Wedding || Katlyn & Bryce - Ashland, Virginia

 

My Instagram kept showing me the story behind the story.
He was making a bar for the reception.
She was hand-lettering everything she could.

They never claimed to be professionals, just two people in love who wanted to personalize each aspect of their wedding day. Katlyn & Bryce had friends and family woven into every detail of their wedding. From honoring those who were no longer there to celebrate their new beginning, to having their Grandma MARRY THEM was their intentional way of saying, thank you. 

You read that right.

The weather was everything an end-of-summer wedding should be. Cool breezes & blush and gold accents adding just the pop that was aesthetically needed. Prepare yourself, there's way too many favorites below...

When Katlyn pulled up everyone's mouth dropped & tears flowed as her three uncles took turns walking her down the aisle. *Cue all the tissues

Oh my stars...

With the last rays of sun shimmering through the trees above, friends & family gathered from all corners of the country. The reception began with dinner and a tribute introduction to how Katlyn & Bryce first met (full adorable love story here!) - Head Shoulders Knees & Toes. After dusk, the party moved indoors & the laughs abounded.

Katlyn & Bryce, thank you for trusting me with your love story and your special day! It's been so fun to call you friends & hear all the behind-the-scenes stories up to now. Congratulations on your marriage!

Huge thank you to David who assisted me throughout the day and all the wonderful vendors, friends, & family who made this day possible & beautiful! Xoxo to you all!
