Ashley and Ryan were married on a gorgeous day in October. They planned their traditional and classic wedding from Ohio, where they both reside. Ashley and her bridesmaids spent the morning at the salon getting their hair and makeup done before heading over to Cairnwood to get dressed. The bridesmaids beautiful red sweetheart neckline chiffon gowns were perfect for this fall themed affair! To add to the classic look, the groomsmen wore black tuxes with bow ties. Ashley’s gown was a Pnina Tornai satin ruched gown that looked incredible on her! She chose to wear her hair down and swept off the side for a more glamorous look. The couple saw each other for the first time as Ashley walked towards Ryan in the church. After their traditional Catholic ceremony, the couple walked out of the church to the bubble send off, which made for some great photos! They then headed over to Cairnwood for photos with their bridal party. They used the sprawling grounds at the estate to get some great and fun photos! Upon guests arrival, they were greeted with a signature cocktail before heading in to enjoy a delicious food filled cocktail hour. Table assignments were placed in a frame that doubled as a favor and were placed around an arrangement filled with manzanita branches. For a fun fall touch, white pumpkins were placed on the cocktail tables as decoration. When it came time for the couple’s first dance as husband and wife, we asked for guests to fill the Great Hall and watch the newlyweds romantic first dance. The couple wanted their guests to remember how much fun the reception was so the night was filled with lots of dancing. When guests weren’t dancing, they were able to jump in the photo booth for a fun pictures! Check out the awesome highlight video from our friends at Tweed Weddings at the very end of this post!
