Ashley + Sam | Wedding


She's a Bennie. He's a Johnnie. And the two of them together make one adorable couple! 

Funny story about Ashley and Sam's wedding day – it rained. No...not just a nice steady rain, it rained hard with a nice wind too. Most people would cringe hearing that, but with a few umbrellas and creativity, their day went off without a hitch. And a little secret I mentioned in another blog post, I actually don't mind rain because then I get to break out my clear umbrellas and those things are the cutest props for photos.

They also say rain on your wedding day is good luck. And after these two said "I do", the rain stopped, the skies cleared and we took some amazing sunset photos. They day couldn't have been more perfect, and I am so happy for these two as they continue their journey as Mr. and Mrs.

q & a with the couple:

Tell a little bit about your love story:

We have been together for 5 years to the day on our wedding day (6-9-18). We met in College and Saint Ben's and Saint John's. Sam proposed over 4th of July weekend at a family cabin on Lake Miltona in 2017. All of our family was watching (little did I know), and later a bunch of our friends came to celebrate with us. It was by far the best weekend of my life. I love Sam's determination and caring attitude towards everyone he meets. He is a go getter and keeps me on my toes.

What is your go-to date as a couple?

Dinner and a movie.

What advice would you give to couples planning a wedding?

Get everything done ahead of time and don't leave anything for the month before! Give yourself enough time to finalize everything.

What's the best relationship/marriage advice you have received?

Be a good listener, compliment each other and don't take anything for granted.
