Ashley & Jen Prove that #LoveAlwaysWins on their Best Day Ever

June 26, 2019

Pops of color and a playful open-air backdrop set the tone for Jennifer and Ashley’s  Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center nuptials. Celebrating their ability to legally get married (woohoo!), this adorable couple tied the knot in style on the first day of Pride Month! They spent their fun-filled wedding bash endlessly laughing with their friends and family. Surrounded by so much happiness (and donuts!), these two truly had their best day ever. Browse this gallery, captured by L.Marie Photography and see why we’re saying #goals. Let’s just say…we’re obsessed!

From Ashley Atkinson: The couple met at a local coffee shop (rise up coffee) in a romantic comedy movie style. Their entire vision for this wedding was to keep everything local by using small businesses! They did all the planning for the event and all decorations were DIY. Even the homemade strawberry, green apple, and blackberry black cherry wine that the girls brewed at home with their father! The beer was home brewed by military friends (Ashley is a combat medic in the US Army). The style was local, quirky, and fun! As a same-sex couple, they decided to celebrate the fact that they have the ability to get married by having their wedding on the first day of PRIDE MONTH!
