Ashley and Mallory planned to have a rustic lodge wedding at Krueger Memorial Hall in Michigan City, Indiana. Little did we know, we’d get some surprisingly warm weather (70 degrees!) in the middle of February!
Their story begins when they met while working at the same supermarket. They started dating and moved in together shortly after. Because of the marriage laws at the time, they weren’t able to get married, so they had to wait 7 years until they could make it official! Ashley proposed during a round of golf – she surprised Mallory by putting the ring on a golf tee! They originally had a small ceremony at a courthouse in February of 2016, but wanted a celebration to include their family and close friends. So that brings us to February 2017!
Ashley and I go way back to high school, so when she reached out to me to photograph their wedding day I was so excited! Their day was full of laughter and happy tears. I was cracking up behind the camera during their first look when Mallory was calling out “Marco Polo” to Ashley before they saw each other!
I absolutely loved that they had an all-female wedding party! Team red and team gray totally rocked it.
Their sweets table was insane. Gummy bears, cupcakes, and a doughnut wall? Yes please!
Duo father-daughter dance. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house!
