gabe & ashley’s wedding ~ the ceremony

001 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyOkay, guys: I only have one more post after this one to share from Gabe & Ashley’s perfect wedding day. Today’s post is my very favorite from this day, other than the one of Ashley & Gabe’s portraits. I always love the ceremony part of wedding days! There’s something so reverent and powerful about watching two people pledge their lives and love to one another. It’s beautiful and it moves me every time! What a sweet covenant.003 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyAshley’s wedding gown was insanely pretty! All over lace with a swingy ankle length skirt, topped off by this sparkly belt…um, yes to all of it! She looked perfect, head to toe!002 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyAnd Gabe wasn’t looking too shabby either. :) Gotta love a good plaid bow tie!004 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyI adore this pic of Ashley’s niece peeking out at the ceremony site as the guests were being seated. :)000 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor Ceremony005 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor Ceremony006 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor Ceremony007 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyHere’s Ashley’s dad watching the processional.008 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor Ceremony009 TX Wedding Stonebridge Outdoor CeremonyThis was such a special moment to me, I just had to share it: Ashley had my mom walked down the aisle with her mother and Gabe’s. This beautiful gesture of honoring Jack’s memory touched me so. I actually had no idea this was even happening until I saw my mom being escorted down the aisle, and I definitely had to choke back some tears at this sweet move on Ashley’s part. It means the world to us to know she will always consider us family.
