Perfection. That’s how I would describe everything about Ashley and Marcus’ wedding. It was simple. It was gorgeous. It was honest. It was raw. It was real. It was beautiful. Just like Ashley and Marcus. Just like the love they share. Yes, perfection. With a capital P!
Their gorgeous Sutherland wedding was eight years in the making, and every single moment of their wedding day was a true and perfect depiction of their love. Amidst tears of joy and hope and love, they committed themselves and promised to love each other forever. Wholly. Honestly. Unconditionally. Perfectly.
Ashley and Marcus – It’s not often that I find myself without words, but here I am. Or maybe I just have too many words to fit in this one post. So let me just sum it all up by saying “I love you!” And “thank you.” Thank you for being you. Thank you for being real. Thank you for sharing your love and allowing me to document it. Thank you for making me feel like part of your family. And mostly, thank you for the friendship that we now share. I’m a firm believer that God puts certain people in our lives at just the right times. Sometimes it’s for a reason. Sometimes it’s for a season. And sometimes it’s for a lifetime. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for you. I love you both so much! OXOX ~ R

How else would you expect a former NC State quarterback to toss a garter???
Wow. Just. Wow.
A fun gift for all of the boys…
I just love that Pastor Matt gathered Ashley and Marcus and their respective parents for a prayer and then a moment of quiet togetherness.
Such a sweet expression. Marcus was so overcome with emotion before Ashley even walked out the door.
Many thanks to my dear friend, Tanya, for photographing this wedding with me! You totally rock! Love you!
