This is why we decided to head to Charlottesville Virginia.  To celebrate the wedding of Ashley and Ross.

When I worked at Houston Baptist University I had an incredible staff of young women.  Ashley was tremendous at planning events that were personal and so thoughtful.  This was just the same a beautifully personal and thoughtful wedding.

The ceremony and reception both took place at a sweet inn.  Ashley and her party walked from the deck of the room she stayed in into the sweet and simple courtyard.  The welcome table had a handwritten sign and wedding pictures of Ross and Ashley’s parents.  The guestbook was handmade by Ashely.

The Wedding Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was beautiful.  Andrew and I read a selection from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.  We were so honored to be part of such a sacred time.

The reception was at the same location.  The little touches were tremendous.  Everything was handwritten in Ashley’s beautiful handwriting.  From the big thoughtful signes to the little “gluten free” pennants on the cupcakes.  It was stunning.

Our deepest love and best wishes to the happy couple.  Marriage is the most wonderful gift!
