Real wedding: Ashley + Sean

Categories   Real Weddings

Admittedly we’ve yet to meet a Max Wanger wedding we didn’t like, but this one has such amazing personality to go along with the always beautiful photography. And Ashley is a real sweetheart, which makes posting her wedding all the better.

Ashley and Sean‘s wedding is such a perfect mix of pretty details and modern style. They’re super creative peeps, and had a ball building, crafting, stitching, baking, painting, photographing, and planning. And they’re a pretty couple too, aren’t they. Ashley’s look is freakin’ adorable! With her short dress and pearls and aqua heels?

She used an embroidery hoop (with her own embroidery) as a ring “pillow”. Aren’t their rings great? Melissa Joy Manning.

Those photobooth garland is a Purl Bee project. They cut over 1,000 circles to make enough garland for their whole wedding. And they made 150 of those cute crepe paper flags for their guests to wave. It’s nearly unbearable, the cuteness of it all.

Ashley collected vintage sheets from etsy and made all of the napkins herself. Such a great idea for interesting fabric!

For favors, they gave both homemade Apple Schnapps brought from Austria (Ashley’s dad is Austrian) and homemade apple pies in the jar, made by Ashley and her mom the Thursday before the wedding. Pretty amazing.

And as if you needed to hear one more thoughtful detail, Ashley sang Sea of Love on her autoharp to Sean as a surprise. Awwww.

Thank you sooooo much for sharing your super cute wedding with us, you two! It really was a perfect LA party. And you definitely outdid yourselves in the craft dept. Which we’re never sad to see.

More photos on Max’s blog today too!

What a gorgeous wedding! So much personality. Does Ashley have any idea what the cost benefit of doing all this DIY stuff is? Clearly it pays off in adorableness...but is there a wallet benefit as well?

Beautiful wedding! Love her dress and that photo of the two kids walking down the aisle!

Dennis @ Wholesale Roses on Sep 22, 2010

There are some great crafts going on here. I love how Ashley used her embroidery as a pillow for the rings. This wedding looks like it has a lot of upscale touches and at the same time they were able to input a ton of DIY.

GORGEOUS couple! And that's so rad that you played for him. I wish I could muster the courage to play a song for my fiance on the guitar for our wedding but I just know I'd be too chicken. So special! The bridesmaids looked great by the way and i LOVE your dress! Gotta love a bride that rocks the short-pouf -dress.
