There is something special about rustic romantic weddings like Ashley and Arnold’s that captivate your heart and last forever in your memory. Both Ashley Rae Photography and Love Story Films were on-hand for Ashley and Arnold’s stunning Mt. Lemmon wedding. The couple met in a high school photography class exactly ten years prior to their wedding date. Originally, Arnold’s friend had a crush on Ashley and kept hitting on her. However, Ashley found that she got along better with Arnold, and they proceeded to date for eight and a half years! While on a trip to Pennsylvania, Ashley really wanted to dip her feet in the Delaware River. She and Arnold waded out to some rocks in the middle of the river to take pictures, when Arnold got down on one knee and proposed! Ashley said yes, and they were one step closer to spending forever together.
All the beautiful details of Ashley and Arnold’s Mt. Lemmon wedding were planned by the couple themselves. They employed Ashley Rae Photography to capture the stunning moments and Love Story Films to capture the breath-taking views – all with a intimate, romantic mood. A color palette of white, peachy blush, and gold were found in dazzling elements from the cake and cutlery to the bouquet and bridesmaid’s gowns from Bella Bridesmaids. Music played a big role in the couple’s lives. At the reception, Ashley and Arnold were able to include songs that held a special meaning to them and their loved one’s. The couple left in style under a starry sparkler exit with Ashley donning a “Just Married” motorbike-styled jacket and drove away in a light blue 1966 Chevrolet pickup truck.
