This last September friends and family members gathered on Martha's Vineyard to celebrate the love of Ashley and Jeff on a delightfully bright and sunny day. During a toast to the newlyweds, we were lucky to hear a fun story of how these two love-birds met.
It all began with an online search for an apartment in the shuffle of Brighton housing, and it will always live on in their laughter with the joke that they got lucky and found not just an apartment but a spouse as well on craigslist. Jeff proposed to Ashley on a hike to Mt. Wachusett with their dog Bodie. When they got to the top to set up a picnic and sat to enjoy the view, Jeff popped the question. They both love music, cooking, traveling, sporting events and of course, Bodie!
The couple decided to marry on the Vineyard where Jeff grew up, and which is a place where they had many great experiences over the years. In that time it has become a special place for them both.
The wedding took place at Pond View Farm situated on the shore of the Tisbury Great Pond. This place is the backdrop for many warm memories for Jeff's family, and they couldn't be happier for Ashley and Jeff to get married there. It is a place where elegant and rustic styles can be blended perfectly.
The ceremony was filled with laughter and tears of love, and all the guests had so much fun sharing the night. I also want to give credit to the Mike Benjamin Band for keeping the energy upbeat and positive throughout. With family toasts and all the love from their favorite people around them, Ashley and Jeff were shinning all day long.
As a photographer will never forget this picturesque day, and especially the flower girls, who were the best I have seen so far. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness, and I am thankful I was able to be there for you. All the best!
