Ashton and Will have this perfectly silly, tender relationship and her childhood home in Los Gatos was so fitting as the venue for their wedding celebration. In the heart of the California coastal redwood forest, her parents hosted 100 guests to toast their daughter marrying her soulmate. Ashton’s brother gave a small speech during the ceremony, stating they will “become more richly themselves together, than the chances are, either of them could ever have managed to become alone.” I found this quote so truly fitting, after hearing the toasts and knowing how Ashton and Will are with each other. Her father gave a glowing speech about his little girl, who has always been so warm hearted and compassionate. Will has always had a quick wit and has a wonderful sense of humor about himself, which creates such a joy between the two of them.
Her parents put so much energy into prepping their family home for this momentous day. Ashton told me they gathered up every twig that appeared out of placeThe entire day was full of personal touches and sentiment. The sun set on a family style dinner, served amidst laughter and the clinking of glasses. A slight breeze began to wash away the heat of the day and the party ramped up. Their families and friends enjoyed dancing on a deck with stunning views of the redwoods and the cafe lights lit the joyous faces into the night.
It was such an honor to be there to celebrate Ashton and Will and their new marriage. I wish them the very best in their new life together. Growing together to become the best individuals and couple possible. Congratulations!
