Gorgeous, talented, sweet, and in love – that’s how I (and probably most people) would describe Ashlee and Matt. Their wedding at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast was simple and classic. Soft blush tones and whites made up the color palette, which mainly came from the beautifully done florals – the perfect compliment to Ashlee’s all lace wedding gown. The B&B was truly a fitting venue for this laid back couple to enjoy everything about their day in one spot. Although the couple chose not to have any attendants, the love and support of their friends and family was evident and the reception was a blast. The speeches, given by Ashlee’s friends and Matt’s sister were so memorable that I can still recall them (and that’s saying a lot, considering how many I’ve heard!). I couldn’t stop laughing when Matt’s sister shared the following (I will relay it as best I can): She said Matt has always been so picky about relationships, and she asked him what exactly he was looking for in a woman. He said he wanted someone beautiful, smart, and funny, with blonde hair and blue eyes, and who is (or maybe it was looks like) a cheerleader. I don’t know how much of that was in jest, but his sister replied “Ok, good luck with that haha”. She then turned to the guests and said “Guess who’s laughing now!”. Because not only is Ashlee all of those things, she was also a cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Bucs. Sometimes dreams do come true, don’t they? My favorite thing about this wedding was all of the genuine smiles and laughter I was able to document. You can’t look at those two smiling and not smile yourself. There’s not much better than a couple on their wedding day who are so obviously deeply in love, are truly best friends, and who have contagious smiles.
