As Justin mentioned in our previous blog post, nerds are our people. And Ashley and Sean aren't just nerds - they're hardcore nerds. In notes they exchanged/read to each other before their ceremony, they talked about being in band class together. There were Star Wars references throughout the day, superhero nods (Batman socks for the groom and groomsmen, a Batman garter for the bride), more Disney allusions than I probably even realized (the big ones being the Minnie Mouse slippers Ashley wore while getting ready and the fact that she walked down the aisle to a song from Beauty and the Beast) and, of course, Harry Potter themed flannels for the bridesmaids that said "I Solemnly Swear I Am Up to No Good" on the back. They were even in the bridesmaids' Hogwarts House colors. All of this is just to say: Ashley and Sean take their geekdom seriously. And we seriously love them for it.
Honestly, it was difficult to put together this blog post because I wanted to include ALL THE PICTURES. Not just the incredible grins and hugs and ridiculous expression or the sweet, purple-tinged DIY details, but Ashley flipping off the tractor that decided to drive right through the background of their portraits or the guests of all ages rocking out to the Macarena during the reception. (Don’t worry, I actually did include all of that stuff.) The windy winter weather made for perfect lighting and dramatic veil-blowing and even the sudden cloudburst didn’t seem to bother Ashley, Sean or any of their guests one bit. Everyone was beaming, everyone was laughing, everyone was thrilled to see these two lovebirds get married. Even their dog, Harley, who made a perfect flower girl.
Congratulations, Ashley and Sean! Your wedding was truly something out of a fairytale. Minus the eternal sleep or being eaten alive stuff, thankfully.
