Ashley and Braun were married at Edgewater Manor this past Saturday and I feel so blessed to have been a part of it! Even though the weather wasn’t nice at all, they didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits.

Ashley talks about choosing her dress:
“I loved my dress! Felt so good in it!! When I went shopping for it, I had tried on a few dresses and when the consultant brought over this one, I remember looking at it, thinking… nah, I don’t think I’ll like that, but I’ll try it on. And when I stepped out and was blown away. I tried a few other places because this Bridal store was in Ottawa and my mom wasn’t there to see it. But I still had that one in mind. I just felt like it was me.”

I asked Ashley what it was like to see Braun for the first time on their big day:
“Omgosh, this was the best moment. There was so much happening when I walked down the isle, emotions going wild, looking at the guests and then a little bit of worry/concern because of Braun’s anxiety. So I focus my main memory on the moment we had alone together for our first look. I even saw his eyes tear up. It was a very special moment.”

Tell me about your first dance and what song you chose:
“Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” by Andrea Bocelli – We wanted something a little different, but classic. It is originally by Elvis, and my Nana loved Elvis. I sadly lost my grandmother this past July, so it kind of felt like it was connected to her. Also, Braun isn’t much of a dancer, and I actually taught ballroom dancing for a while. Leading up to the wedding, all my family were asking if we were doing a choreographed dance. And we weren’t, because teaching someone to ballroom dance, takes a long time, a year was not enough time… especially on top of everything else. But just 2 days before the wedding Braun and I were just slow dancing to our song, and i said ok if you want you can spin me. (I would initiate it) and he said well how come you get to spin, I want to turn too! So, when we did that on the actually wedding day. It was really funny.
Congratulations Braun and Ashley … I couldn’t be happier for the two of you!!
Enjoy your honeymoon in Spain and Italy! Safe travels!
