Ashley + Hayden’s Romantic Garden Wedding by Zoe Life Photography

Friday, August 25, 2017

Classic garden weddings are so romantic! Ashley + Hayden chose to tie the knot at the beautiful Blackhaven Wedding Gardens under a gazebo. The couple was not only surrounded by botanical flowers and plants, but also with close family + friends. Ashley started with a neutral color palette and added pops of sky blues and pinks. The May day was a spectacular site to see with personalized touches and Zoe Life Photography captured their day so well! See her photos below along with her take on the couple and the day!

From the photographer, Zoe Life Photography: Ashley and Hayden met as 16-year-olds sitting across from one another in high school English. They both had crushes on one another, but were too shy to do anything about it, so they became friends instead! Years later, during a summer break during college, they reconnected and went on their first date and fell in love!

They choose neutrals for their wedding colors (light grey, white, and blush pink with some greenery). Ashley wanted a soft, romantic theme for her wedding. They chose Blackhaven Wedding Garden for their venue location, and were married on a bright, sunny Sunday afternoon in May, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful wedding with us, Zoe! You can check out more of Zoe Life Photography's work here on her website and also be sure to give her a follow on Instagram!
