gabe & ashley’s wedding ~ the details

72-texas-stonebridge-wedding-venue-detailsI’m back with the second post from Gabe & Ashley’s perfect wedding day at Stonebridge Wedding Venue in Blum, TX. You can read more about this special wedding {and why it meant so much for me to photograph} in the first post here. Today, I am sharing all the pretty details.

Ashley’s talented sister in law, Michelle, made the beautiful bouquet, above.

Ashley & Gabe orchestrated their day to play out a bit differently than most weddings. They started things off with a barbeque dinner and games for guests to enjoy. They each had more casual ensembles for this part of the evening. Here’s Ashley’s dress she wore for the dinner.69-texas-stonebridge-wedding-venue-details74-texas-stonebridge-wedding-venue-detailsAnd the wedding dress, for the sunset ceremony and dance party after! :)68-texas-stonebridge-wedding-venue-details73-texas-stonebridge-wedding-venue-detailsI love a good bow tie!
