“I have loved you for 4,727 days” was written on the front of Ashley’s letter to Mike. I’ll save you the math: that’s almost thirteen years! To say that their wedding was something they had pictured for a long time is an understatement. Ashley and Mike met when they were just kids, and Mike’s family had moved in across the street.

This was a fun one to be involved with; Ashley is a wedding planner at Hacienda Sarria, and is someone I’ve worked along side with on many other weddings. Her hands are literally all over my last video, Lauren+Mitchell, which took place only two weeks prior. I’d see her every once in a while and we’d discuss her big day, their concepts and plans, the way the venue was going to be decorated, and more and more about their backstory. At some point, there was a clear pattern emerging… fairy tales, books, love stories. It’s a theme that definitely played out on the day… it was a magical wedding. Congrats, guys!

“Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale”

    I am your cousin Ashley(Beth Gregerson) daughter, I met you at your Uncle Dave and Aunt Patty’s wedding many moons ago. Your stunning and I wish you and Mike all the happiness and blessings for a long and fairy-tale life together. Cheers from BC.
    Please share our love with your parents it been awhile since we have seen them and you.

  2. Oh my, this story and and video was absolutely beautiful. I had the privilege of working with Ashley for a brief moment in time relative to a promotion of National Sweater Day. I could tell what an amazing person she is. So full of life and caring. This video depicts those same qualities. I would like to congratulate Ashley and Mike. It truly does appear to be a fairy tale! Excellent photography and videography as well, I would like to add. You REALLY captured the essence of the day and their lives together.
