Pink Kentucky Barn Wedding | Ashley + Jon | Part 1

From my first, chilly winter-time meeting with Ashley and Jon, their wedding warmed my heart.  You see, they live in Chicago and love it there (me, too!), but really cherish Ashley's childhood, Kentucky home.  From the minute he proposed (probably sooner!) she knew Kentucky was where it would be.  On her parent's farm.  Goodness, girl after my own heart! Know what's even better than that?  She shopped for vendors who clearly shared her vision and were committed to making her dreams come alive.  I love a bride who knows what she wants and really, really values the memories that will be made.  And seeks folks who can carry out her vision.  Ashley wanted all the details captured, but what was most important to her were the relationships, the moments and the 180 people who gathered in little Bethlehem, Kentucky to dance the night away.  Today will feature a 3-piece post on their fabulous wedding that was so graciously honored with a post on Every Last Detail.  This is an easy one for me to love, as it's woven just as I would wish - rich with memories, tradition and family.  Enjoy!

Is it possible to be more glowing?  Gorgeous!Prepare yourself with a tissue - such a fabulous first look!Can we pause a take a moment to discuss these flowers Ms. Suzi created?  Many of them grown in her own garden, including those dahlias.  Swoon, so smitten with her sweet heart, love for her work and just plain talent.  Love!

Come back later today for parts two and three!  Enjoy!
