Ashley and Aaron got married at St. Hedwig. Their celebration continued at the Grain Exchange!
They couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day in September. Right before the leaves started changing, this might have been our last warm 2015 weekend. After their ceremony at St. Hedwig’s, we headed to Estabrook Beer Garden for some portraits and, obviously, beer time. While here, Ashley and Aaron also exchanged personal vows. They said it was one of their favorite moments of the day (along with seeing each other for the first time and their first dance). “These were times that we felt we were the only 2 in the room.” Ashley and Aaron were then joined by all their friends and family at the beautifully decorated Grain Exchange.
Ashley and Aaron met through friends, who both stood up in the wedding. From being around their bridal party, you could easily tell how much love everyone had for each other. They were fun, energetic and so easy going. They have fantastic advice to future brides and grooms: “Arrive at the tail end of cocktail hour. Everyone is super excited to see you and wants to talk. It can be very overwhelming if you are there upon everyone’s arrival. Making your way around tables after dinner is a less stressful options for all.”
Side note from us, big thank you to Tyler and Ryan of Acowsay for being so fantastic to work with!
