Ashley and Jason had a gorgeous fall wedding at Blakeley State Park and I'm so excited to be sharing some of the special moments from their big day! I may be a bit biased, but I think their wedding seriously belongs in a bridal magazine. I'm sure that any brides-to-be who are in the process of planning an outdoor wedding for this fall can draw inspiration from some of the beautiful touches the couple chose to incorporate, so keep scrolling for all of the stunning fall wedding vibes!
Even though Blakeley State Park is a beautiful wedding venue year-round, I think the park's beauty truly shines in the fall. One of the state park's most well-known landmarks is the giant oak tree where Ashley and Jason shared their first look. Ashley looked stunning in her wedding dress from Melissa Sweet Bridal, and Blakeley's natural greenery was the perfect backdrop to capture this sweet moment between them.
The couple had an intimate ceremony at the Blakeley State Park Gazebo, which is a beautiful location surrounded by trees. The ceremony took place at golden hour which complimented the gorgeous peach and terracotta florals provided by Wildflowers beautifully, and the couple's wedding coordinator, Events by Raine, LLC, did a fantastic job making sure the day ran smoothly.
After the ceremony, Ashley and Jason held their reception at the Wehle Center, another beautiful spot within the state park that's within walking distance of the gazebo. Rentals were provided by Port City Rentals and the caterer, Veronica Wilson, and baker, Sugar House - Custom Cakes, prepared some amazing food and sweet treats for the wedding guests. One of my favorite moments from the night was during the cake-cutting when Ashley fed not only Jason, but also me, the coordinator, the DJ from Triple D Sounds, and the violinist bites of cake! We all had so much fun laughing and celebrating the couple, and I can confirm the cake was very delicious.
The reception continued on with one of the funniest Shoe Games I've ever seen at a wedding, and the couple closed out the night with streamers and glow sticks.
The whole wedding was an absolute dream, and I'm so honored Ashley and Jason trusted me to be a part of their special day. I'm wishing this sweet couple a long and happy marriage, and I hope you enjoy some of my favorite photos from their wedding!
Thank you again Ashley and Jason for choosing me to photograph your wedding day!
