With family health issues emerging, Ashley put her organisational skills to work and planned an epic wedding day within a three month timeframe.
The couple chose the venue Factory 51 at Cooparoo for both their ceremony and reception. The central location made it easy for guests planning a big celebration to be dropped at the door by their designated driver. The industrial building features internal brick walls, giving it a funky, yet rustic vibe. A giant chandelier drops over the ceremony area.
When chatting about the colour schemes for their wedding, and I mentioned that I would dress to suit their colour scheme, Ashley quickly requested black for my colour. I don’t usually wear black to a wedding, however, with the groom and groomsmen wearing white jackets and black pants, and the bridesmaids wearing champagne. black seemed to be the perfect colour to blend in.
Ashley was absolutley stunning in a fitted strapless dress, which hugged her curves. Her platinum hair was curled, and her smile throughout the entire ceremony was just dazzling. She walked into the ceremony on the arm of her dad, Eric.
Ryan vowed to stand with Ashley against any troubles, and Ashley told Ryan that he has taught her to enjoy life, because you never know what might happen tomorrow. She also promised to never speak to him during a Bronco’s game! I’m guessing Ryan will be holding her to that one.
Ryan and Ashley asked for a light ceremony, which acknowledged, but didn’t dwell on factors beyond their control. They wanted to enjoy the evening with their guests and make the night one that they would always remember.
