Ashley+Andrew | Poplar Grove Boat House

When Andrew signed one of his very first emails to me with “I hope this finds you, Alin, and the children smiling more than frowning and enjoying our gift of life as much as possible!”, I knew I liked him. After 10 months of emails, we met for the very first time on the wedding morning. I was greeted with one of those hugs where you don’t want to let go it was so cuddly. In my personal life, I love to surround myself with people who are creative and can laugh about anything. Andrew is a ridiculously talented photographer in Charleston (website HERE). But the best part about him is his ability to light up a room with his smile and his witty banter and jokes.

Then there’s Ashley, owner of yesUmay and Cose Belle in Charleston. This girl can bake AND dress! She’s a beautiful, creative fashionista. She likes to jump. A lot. And she likes to laugh. A LOT. And what was real endearing was watching her laugh at everything that came out of Andrew’s mouth. Some people get tired of their spouse’s same jokes over and over again, but not Ashley. She just lets Andrew be Andrew, and loves him for it. Throughout the day, I would catch Andrew just looking at Ashley, without her knowing. And I could see how much he truly loved her. And he never failed to tell her he loved her that day. Over and over again.

The best part of the entire day for Alin & I was when, during the ceremony, Ashley was all choked up on her words, and Andrew stopped everything, turned her around to face her family and friends, hugged her from behind and reminded her of everyone who was there. That they were all there because they loved her and cared.

Being around Andrew & Ashley’s friends and family that day made me realize how much these two were, in fact, loved. Their friends were loyal to them. And any one of them that had a talent, gave of themselves on the wedding day; from the DJ to the planner to the caterers. I have a feeling that Alin & I have found us some real new friends here and we can’t wait to spend more time with them again.
