Ashley and Gill…how I’ve been looking forward to this wedding! I was completely taken with these two on the day I met them for their engagement session…they are so in love with each other! Because of their busy schedules, these two treasure moments together…either outdoors with their fur baby Sullivan or cheering on their home team (did I mention they’re sports fans?). “We are HUGE Tar Heels!” says Ashley. They try not to miss a single fall football game or home basketball game. They love their family, friends and traveling, and of course their baby Sullivan. They just love life, so it’s an absolute pleasure to spend time with them! You can see their engagement session and read all about the groom’s sweet proposal here (hint: it involves pup Sullivan! Yes!!)
Their ceremony at the University Baptist Church was a joyous swirl of loving family and delighted friends, many from the bride and groom’s sorority/fraternity days at UNC Chapel Hill. Ashley was perhaps the most organized bride I have ever worked with! She knows just what she wants and is so confident in her decisions. She and Gill also trusted me completely. At one point they said “We’ll do whatever you want us to do!” What a gift! These two really just wanted to get married and enjoy the day. Gill’s calm, sweet, energy was such a pleasure as well.
And their families were so happy! Several times during the reception at the Carolina Club I saw Ashley and Gill’s moms hugging each other on the dance floor! At one point the mother of the bride commented that Gill is the son she never had. And…check out the portraits with Sullivan, the famous Goldendoodle! His sitter brought him to the wedding for a bit so he could make a special appearance on his mom and dad’s big day! He was even dressed to the nines in a black bowtie! So sweet! Below is a sneak peek of their wonderful wedding!!!
