Cosplay coupled with closest friends and family equalled the most unique wedding of the year! Ashley and Tony’s wedding may have been small. It may have been out of the box. But it brought a tear to every single eye in the place. Their Princess Bride inspired ceremony was one of the most heartfelt I’ve witnessed.
Ironically, I photographed one of the bridesmaids weddings as well, a few years back when I was still a newb. I hadn’t even met Ashley and Tony until I arrived on their wedding day, but knowing who their friends were, I knew they were amazing people. I couldn’t have been more right. The two of them are the sweetest individuals alone, but together, they are even better.
Tony cares for Ashley in an unparalleled way. He already knows the effort required of him and he’s fully prepared to put 110% in.
Their wedding day was perfection. I was there to capture the ceremony and a couple portraits, so I didn’t get to stay the whole day, but what I did witness was bliss. We all met at The Carolina Renaissance Festival where a fire burned in the background, eliciting a smoke tower in the gorgeous morning light. Trumpeteers announced the bride in true Renaissance fashion. It was like a wedding AND a show. I am amazed that I was able to do my job as I partly just wanted to watch!
