It’s been over a year since I’ve shot a wedding at Broadway United Methodist Church but less than a year since shooting a reception at The Grand Lodge. Both places are equally beautiful and are major landmarks in Downtown Paducah. Those two reasons alone would have had me jumping at the chance to photograph Ashley & Joe’s wedding but it was a simple phone call from Ashley’s mom that “had me at hello”.
That phone call came to me a little under a year ago and Ashley’s mom’s description of Ashley and fiance Joe gave me all the feels! They met on their college campus (University of Tennessee) library during finals he afterward college they find themselves working in Virginia. Years later Joe proposal to Ashley during a visit home to Paducah for Christmas and finally, almost 2 years later, they tied the knot in the company of their wonderful friends and family.
Ashley was stunning in her full lace gown and cathedral lace-trimmed veil! And Joe looked flawless and classic in his black tie tux. Honestly, I could photograph lace gowns and black tie weddings for the rest of my days and never tire of it! Enjoy my favorites from Ashley & Joe’s amazing day!
