She had been looking forward to this moment her entire life, wearing white and walking up to the man that she would spend the rest of her life with. As I walked alongside her she began to cry. I touched her arm reassuringly and she stopped and said, "I'm not sure why I am crying; I don't cry." She then began to smile and laugh, and when she was ready she approached him. I fluffed her train and told her, "Whenever you are ready." She sighed and said, "Dan?" And when he turned around, he started to tear up and smile. Ashley was radiant, and he hugged her and buried his head in her shoulder. There was not a dry eye around after their first look, including mine!
Dan and Ashley exchanged their vows at the top of a hill overlooking the lake at Stephens Lake Park on October 21st, 2017. This date was extremely special, because it was also the day that Ashley's grandparents were celebrating 54 years of marriage. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family and celebrated with laughter and dancing into the evening.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Struemph! It was a pleasure photographing your beautiful and perfect wedding day!
