The Bell Tower on 34th is a beautiful venue and was a fitting scene for AP and Ashford's special wedding day. When I met AP and Ashford for their engagement session I instantly felt a great vibe from these two. AP was cool and calm, you could tell he has lived a bit. Ashford was shy and quiet but AP keep her laughing. They have a really great chemistry and it was evident day of the wedding.
AP was GQ ready on his wedding day, and his groom men followed suit. They had a room at a nearby hotel where AP shared a special moment with his brother and father. I'm a big tough guy but the moment when AP's father hugged him and told him he is doing a "good thing" I almost let out some tears and I know AP almost did as well. In that moment you could see the pride AP's father had. Honestly that was one of the most powerful moments I've ever witnessed. Once the guys finished getting ready I followed them to Bell Tower where AP opened his gift. Ashford had gotten him a very nice MOVADO watch and AP made sure to show his joy.
Ashford and her bridesmaids were chill, except her sister. Ashford's sister was a riot and she enjoyed her sisters day. Ashford was stunning, her dress was beautiful ,and hair and makeup were flawless. Ashford and I took a moment to capture some portraits in the beautiful courtyard, which came out perfect. As Ashford walked down the isle she looked angelic, her family and friends made sure to let her know.
The Savvy Consultants ensured that the wedding was seamless and the decor was immaculate. The floral arrangements were done by Plants and Petals and they did a stunning job. Dj Big Reeks had the building rocking with his late 90's mix. The evening was perfect and I know the couple truly enjoyed themselves, but dont take my word for it, check out the images.
