If there is one place we love to photograph at, it is the Salem Cross Inn! It is definitely the quintessential New England wedding venue with gorgeous grounds! When Ashley & BJ reached out to us and said that that’s where they were getting married, we were instantly excited. The best part of photographing at the same venue a few times is always trying different locations for photos. It challenges us a bit! Besides the beautiful venue, Ashley & BJ were absolutely beaming on their wedding day! My absolute favorite part of the day was when Ashley was caught up in getting into her dress and suddenly caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror and instantly began to cry. It was so unexpected but also so real at the same time. It was the moment she realized that she was really going to be marrying BJ in only a couple of hours! I have to say, it was an amazing ceremony with a few more happy tears and laughter shared along the way.
I’d have to say the second best part of the day was when Ashley and her father danced to a song he wrote and recorded for her. I mean, really?! That was the sweetest thing ever! What a great moment to share between a father and his daughter. I may or may not have held back a tear or two at that moment. Besides that, the entire day was just so easy and fun. That was definitely because of who Ashley & BJ are as a couple. They are so easy to be around and get along with, we instantly liked them both so much. I can tell how much they love each other just because of how comfortable they are together.
Ashley & BJ, thank you so much for letting us capture your day and being great people in general! We hope you LOVE your photos from your wedding day!!
