When one of our beloved LBBers ties the knot, we ooh and aah like the best of them over their gorgeous day - because our LBB members DO have the most gorgeous days. When Ashley Bartoletti sent over Tim Co. Photographers' photos of her day, we couldn't stop smiling while we gushed over image after image, then decided to place them prettily into a big, gorgeous gallery and share them with you. Because you'll love Ashley + her handsome hubby just as much as we do.
We love this sweet film from Jake Schroeder...
From Ashley Bartoletti Photography ... This is my wedding photographed by the amazing Timothy Beckford of Timco Photographers with Amanda Young. We had an intimate wedding of 85 people at an historic mansion in Philadelphia. I wanted the wedding to reflect our personalities with a very classic feel, so we had a lot of personal and vintage details. To save money, I did all of the paper goods myself - menus, programs, invitations, favor boxes, etc. I also intended to DIY all the flowers (my deceased mother was a florist), but had some help from some of her former employees. I made my husbands boutonniere, my dad and I did all the table arrangements, and we had some help for the other bouquets and corsages.
Our wedding was unique because we opted to have a self-uniting ceremony (legal in Pennsylvania), so we were able to write the entire ceremony ourselves. We had a groomsmen lead us, and incorporated personal vows, readings, and a wine ceremony. We wrote the whole ceremony out in a fabric bound notebook so we could always keep it as a special token from our wedding.
To remember my mom I incorporated several special momentos - I had a ring bearer pillow made from the lace from her wedding dress, I used her favorite candy as favors (chocolate covered cherries), and had my brother walk a special memory bouquet down the aisle and place it on a chair in the front row.
