Throughout Ashley and Ben's wedding reception there was not a moment when someone wasn't cheering for these two. The excitement and the energy in the room was infectious with shouting, napkin waving, clapping, huge hugs, and big laughs. Their friends and family were ready to celebrate! And after dinner, the dance floor filled quickly!
Ashley and Ben are so clearly in love. It's the kind of relationship that I can completely relate to. There is a lightheartedness, with banter and playful jokes. Then the looks that they'll give each other with a little smile, communicating the 'I love you' after a punchline. There's a connection. Any time I asked them to get close for a photo, they held each other tight or went right for a kiss. They are also a lot of fun to be around, it's why there was so much audible excitement throughout their reception! These two have already been together for years, they know each other well, and there is no end in sight to the love and passion that they share. A marriage with a great mix of familiarity and adventure.
