They danced the night away as the warmth of their breath could be seen in the starry night sky. The night was perfect as cozy friendships, toasty fires and wild spirits ignited the Ruins with love. The cool crisp clean air provided a beautiful memory that will not soon be forgot as the chill in the air enhanced the warmth of love as Ashtyn + Mat became husband & wife.
Ashtyn + Mat exchanged their vows at The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm this past weekend with delicate mossy greens enveloping the Ruins, fall leaves softly dancing to the ground and sunlit mountain views surrounding them and all their guests. The reception was set up in the Ruins with white linens and chairs, white pumpkin center pieces filled with florals, rose gold candle holders and rose gold embellished table numbers. And to top it all off gold lights strung across the Ruins to set the perfect ambient light for the evening. Just enough that you could still see the sparkling stars… it was perfect.
One of our favorite moments of the day was their first look. Mat and the men got dressed in the old white barn next to the gorgeous Estate home where the ladies helped Ashtyn into her stunning wedding gown. As she put on the final detail of her solitaire diamond bracelet she took one last deep breath and headed out to the old white barn where Mat was waiting to see his beautiful bride.
A few lingering intense moments went by and she then announced to Mat that he could turn around… an instant connection of happy tears began to flow and two souls beaconed to become one on a beautiful November day in the mountains.
The day started with a champagne pop!!
And then it was time for their first look.
We had groomsmen peaking through the window watching it all happen.
Two of Ashtyn + Mat’s amazing friends played and sang for the wedding ceremony.
So much cozy warm loving going on in this beautiful place.
Thank you to all the amazing creatives who helped to make this day so beautiful!
Ashtyn did them herself!!
