Ashley & Karl are married, and their wedding was lovely, sweet, emotional, and full of joy. You might remember Ashley & Karl from their engagement session at Lakeside Park, or from Ashley’s bridal portraits at Lone Star Mansion The ceremony and reception were both at the beautiful Lone Star Mansion, and coordinated by their excellent staff (Sara & Nicole are amazing, and made the day go so smoothly!). The ceremony was in their lovely white chapel, covered in peonies and hydrangeas from Sage Fine Flowers. Ashley walked down the aisle with her father to the sounds of a string quartet (and wait until you see Karl’s reaction to seeing his beautiful bride!), and exchanged their vows with huge smiles!
The party at the reception was full of dancing, good food, and celebration of Ashley & Karl! In10city Band kept the dance floor full, Creme de la Creme made the most beautiful & delicious cakes (if you’re an Aggie, wait until you see the groom’s cake – you’re going to love it!), and Lone Star Mansion’s in-house chef & catering team made a delicious meal.
There were so many sweet moments on Ashley & Karl’s wedding day, from Ashley & her mom giggling together as Ashley put on her wedding dress to Karl’s dance with his aunt to the father of the bride’s toast, when he read a letter he had written to his daughter when she was a little girl.
Ashley & Karl, you two are incredibly special. What an honor it was to get to know you both these last few months, see your relationship, get to know your families, and celebrate you as you were joined in marriage. Ashley, your joy is contagious and you are so beautiful, inside and out. Karl, your strength and kindness are so evident. I hope these previews from your wedding are a reminder of how wonderful your relationship is!! I can’t wait to share more soon!
