Ashley and Graham were one of the most fun couples I’ve had the chance to work with in my career. For starters, they were based in Korea, which meant that most of our meetings were done via Skype. Let me tell you – I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much during Skype meetings as I have with these two. Even though most of their wedding was planned from afar (which would usually be an added stress for most), their sense of humor never seemed to dim throughout the wedding process. I was also fortunate enough to work with Ashley’s mother, Rhonda for our face-to-face meetings, who has been the kindest, most organized mother-of-the-bride I’ve ever worked with. It was just a pleasant experience all-around:)
Ashley & Graham’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. Ashley had decided early on to go with a classy Christmas theme (their wedding was in December), which fun touches of personalization. Some of my favorite details were the mistletoe ball under the wedding canopy, and their Nightmare Before Christmas cake (seriously, coolest cake I’ve ever seen!). I think that everyone in attendance at their wedding would have to agree that the high point of the night was the couple’s grand entrance. Ashley is a USC alumni, and was a part of the Trojan Marching band in college. That being said, it was only fitting that the band played Ashley & Graham into the reception! It gets better – Ashley actually played with the band and several of her wedding guests (including members of the bridal party). How cool is that!? The day gets better – later in the night Graham surprised Ashley by playing his guitar and singing her a song. After that, Ashley’s mom surprised both Ashley and Graham with a hot chocolate and espresso bar the bride and groom were sent off in style with a sparkler grand exit.
Needless to say, I loved their wedding and their guests surely loved their wedding as well. Congrats again, Ashley & Graham!
