Today I’m sharing my favorite wedding. It’s my own. Two years ago I said, “I do”, to the sweetest, most handsome man in the world and became Ashlyn Carter.
Every detail was better in person than I could have imagined. Perfectly whimsical, sweet and a fabulous celebration with 250 of our friends and family members. Stephanie Fay is a dear friend of mine, and she was able to capture our day so beautifully.
After visiting the McCormick Home Ranch in Camarillo, CA, I knew right away it had to be the venue. The colonial style home sits on several acres of ranch land and has beautiful gardens, a big green barn, and the front of the house reminds me of the home in Father of the Bride - my absolute favorite movie growing up.
My favorite moment of the wedding was walking down the aisle to see my love for the first time. I head back tears the entire way down the aisle. The ceremony was very personal to us and we wrote our own vows, which I recommend to every couple!
We danced our first dance to Coldplay, had the most delicious food and mashed potato martini bar, shed many many tears of joy, and sat in awe in the wonderful glow of the evening.
To my sweet husband – thank you for loving me unconditionally, being my hero, best friend and faithful supporter.
I love you,
