Ashley & Ryan | Northern Michigan Rustic Chic Wedding

Ashley and Ryan’s wedding day was an absolute dream! Every little detail was just perfect and so thought out. Ashley looked stunning in her dress, and her bouquet was made with some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen.

It is so evident how much Ashley and Ryan are loved by the amazing group of friends and family that surrounded them on their special day. Not only are they loved, but they also have a special way of showing their love for their friends and family. There were so many moments of this wedding that I’d like to call my favorite, but I will never forget the letter that Ryan wrote to Ashley’s bridesmaids. He wrote them a letter promising to love Ashley unconditionally and take care of her in every way he possibly can. How sweet and thoughtful is that?! And, of course, the letter came along with some mimosas for the girls to enjoy while getting ready 😉

Ashley and Ryan were married in front of their loved ones at Crooked River in Gladwin, Michigan. The venue was absolutely breathtaking and certainly showcased the true beauty of Northern Michigan. At the end of the ceremony, Ashley and Ryan’s fathers had a little surprise in store for their wives. Not only did Ashley and Ryan exchange their vows, but their parents renewed their vows right after them. How amazing is that!?

Mr. and Mrs. Lombardo, it was such an honor to photograph your special day. I wish you both so much happiness!
