Step into the soulful 70’s with this beautiful wedding! Ashlee and Mike married at 701 Whaley in South Carolina in May 2017. We love the rustic DIY door back drop at the ceremony and the decor throughout the reception. Thank you to Lavish Moments Photography for sharing this wedding with us!
From the Bride, Ashlee, “We met at church; his mom was my Girl Scout troop leader. He was always trolling and dropping in on our Girl Scout meetings. We were like kindergarteners. I’m pretty sure he picked on me because he was so in love. We became really close friends and remained that way through college.
He popped the question while we were on a surprise anniversary trip to Lake Tahoe. I had no clue! When we started dating Mike always loved to write poems for me. There was a poem that he wrote for me when we first started dating that he hadn’t finished, and he named it “untitled.” So after dinner, we went back to the hotel, and he asked if I could record him reading a new poem. Come to find out it was the unfinished poem he had written, except this time it had an ending… he asked if I’d be his wife! He retitled it “Lucky Number 7″ in honor of it being our 7th and final dating anniversary. Not only that, he proposed at the same time he’d asked me to be his girlfriend 7 years ago. I still have no clue how he pulled all that off.”
