Matt & Ashlee | Prairie Song
I met Ashlee almost 8 years ago, during the summer of 2008, when we were both working as crew girls at Deer Valley Ranch in Colorado. I don’t remember the first time we met, I just remember becoming super fast friends. There isn’t enough room in this post to tell you about the countless adventures we had that summer, but one of the most prominent memories I have is of the many times we would take long hikes and talk about Jesus, dating, life, and how the three intertwined. Photographing Ashlee & Matt’s wedding last April was so incredibly special for me, it was so awesome to think of our lives then and see how God has continued to write our stories now.
Matt and Ashlee were married at Prairie Song, a recreated 1800s Old West Town in Dewey, Oklahoma. To say it was charming would be an understatement! I’ve traveled to 47 states so far, and I have to say I think I fell a little bit in love with Oklahoma while I was there! The scenery is beautiful, the people are so friendly, and if my family wasn’t all in MD…. I may have stayed :). Matt and Ashlee’s wedding day was truly wonderful. From the sweet getting ready moments to the dancing at the reception, everyone truly celebrated Matt and Ashlee and the love that they share. To me it was a perfect and wonderful day, filled with some of the most lovely people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting!
