COLUMBUS, GA WEDDING AT THE POWERHOUSES
When Frank + Ashley set their wedding date for 10.10.20, they expected a lot of things– but they didn’t expect a pandemic, a hurricane, or a tornado. But… they got all 3.
Luckily, they both kept their eyes on the prize: marriage.
Their day was one of those days that, despite the rain, had my assistant Brooke and I looking at each other and saying, “This is the best day. This is so, so fun.”
But really, I wouldn’t have expected anything different from Frank + Ashley. They’re awesome. They have amazing families, the best friends, the most fun style, and the whole day was just a dream– perfectly planned by P. Hasting Design.
You’d never guess that we took these photos between thunderstorms, or that it was pouring outside as they said their vows under a colorful floral arch (designed by the amazing Albright’s Florist.) They were cool and calm, and SO HAPPY. They live-streamed their ceremony for their friends and family who couldn’t attend, and as they toasted with champagne (and donuts- I told you they were awesome!) Frank choked up when he realized he was finally able to call Ashley his wife.
After the ceremony, Frank + Ashley shared a dance with each other and with their parents, and headed to the reception, where an incredible spread by JK Signature Events waited. A donut tower, a bacon display, taco trays and a whole pig… it was incredible.
Frank, a luthier (that’s a guitar maker, for those who might not know) used guitar bodies as votives over the bar, and guests toasted with signature cocktails, named after their beloved cats.
Then, the band kicked up. But– this wasn’t any ordinary band. It was some of their best friends (who also happen to be INSANELY talented!) who rocked the night away– The Shelby Brothers.
Guys, it was perfect. The whole day was amazing.
Frank + Ashley, thank you for inviting me to photograph such an incredible day. I’m so happy for you both and so honored to have been there. Cheers to a lifetime of bliss!
