Tina and Ashley’s love runs deep. Their engagement in 2013 was nothing short of fabulous, Tina surprising Ashley with her friends from their hometown in Indianapolis and popping the question after 5 long years of dating. Ashley knew then she had to plan the most beautiful rustic wedding!
Ashley is a planner. She planned their wedding over the span of 2 years and did all the decorations herself. There was a lot of love put into this day to capture how much Tina and Ashley truly love each other.
The day was amazing. The weather looked grim all week but on their special day, the clouds parted and the sun peaked through. Their family from Indiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan, Texas, and many many more places joined them in their now home state of North Carolina. The Rand Bryan House was the venue, an old Christmas Tree farm near downtown Raleigh. The trees provided a beautiful backdrop while the wrap around porch served as a great cocktail hour. After the vows, the couple treated their guests to a buffet style dinner, including some of the couples favorite dishes, cupcakes and an open bar. The couples favorite DJ, Jason Huggins, provided the music for the night and really turned the night into a party after dinner.
