Ashleigh + Ian // Married!! | The Beachmoor at Mass Maritime Wedding

“I wanna love you, forever I do.
And I wanna spend all of my days with you.
I’ll carry your burdens, be the wind at your back.
I wanna spend my forever like that.” 

– Ben Rector, Forever Like That

Ashleigh and Ian are married! They are the most gracious couple who complement each other in the best ways and mesh together in the best ways. They know each other and love each other and encourage each other well. It makes my heart happy knowing that my across-the-street childhood best friend found her person and that he loves her so much! *cue tears*

A+I were officially married last fall in a small ceremony, and have since been knee deep in A) moving to a new state B) starting new careers and C) planning their amazing summer soirée! Their goal was to celebrate with all their closest friends and family and it was the perfect summer day on the Cape to do so.

I started off the day photographing Ashleigh and her gals while they got ready at the Inn at Onset Bay in Onset, MA. Her maid of honor Christine is a talented hair stylist and did all the girls’ hair!

I love this quiet moment with her pup Lucy by her side!

I don’t know their friendship very well, but I have a feeling this sums it up. 😉
