Ashley & Jarrett's Vintage-y Literary Affair at the Cotton Room
Wedding: 15 October 2016 | Posted: 20 February 2017
Have we mentioned yet just how much we love Ashley & Jarrett? No? Allow me: We love Ashley & Jarrett. Not only are we all truly kindred spirits, but rarely have we seen a bride with more innate elegance, a groom with such easy class, a couple so adorably in love and perfectly suited for each other. How could we not love them?
They planned an amazing October brunch wedding (waffle bar!) at the Cotton Room in Durham, invested the space with gorgeous vintage books and luscious florals (created by our talented friend Diane at Bowerbird Flowers & Apothecary, whose work I always adore), and brought together their families and friends for a beautiful celebration steeped in romance. They shared one of our favorite First Looks, Jarrett's face lighting up at the first sight of his gorgeous bride--and how could it not? how amazing is her dress?!--and Ashley soaking it all up. Their couple's portraits are some of our favorites of all time.
We are so ecstatic to have had the opportunity to photograph these beauties, and are heart-happy and honored to call them friends. We hope you enjoy their images as much as we do--congratulate them in the comments!
