Oh take me back to hot summer day’s with an ocean breeze, ships in the background, the smell of saltwater in the air. I’m so excited to finally share Ashleigh and Joel’s Pinnacle at the Pier wedding photos, it was such a huge day filled to the brim with excitement, joy, and supportive friends and family.
Ash and Joel met in 2011 at a networking conference, and within 3 months they were inseparable. There is this strength in the quiet moments of their relationship… the touch of a hand, a shared look, a nod. They have this connection, and I look at them and think ‘These two have each other’s back’. They honour one another, they support one another, they’re kind to one another. It’s a quiet and constant current running between them. It’s lovely.
And they’re sarcastic and hilarious, which makes me like them even more. (If we can laugh together things are going to be that much more fun).
I loved the light at the Pinnacle, especially when the girls were getting ready. I loved the warmth later in the evening as we captured portraits around the Quay. Also, I LOVED that Ash and Joel were surprised by their friends and family with a flash mob. A FREAKING FLASH MOB. Come on, that’s genius. I love moments like that at a wedding, when the bride and groom have no idea it’s coming, and all this prep has been done ahead of time. I think it shows how highly their guest think of them, how excited they are, and how much they support the union. It was hard not to cry, but in a way it wasn’t because I was laughing pretty hard at how hilarious the dance was.
Anyways, take a gander over their day, and if you’re interested in the vendor team check it out at the bottom of the post. Unique Boutique totally nailed the florals and Pinnacle at the Pier was a dream to coordinate with.
Ash and Joel, thank you for inviting us along on your adventure, it meant so much to us. We can’t wait for some ROCKWOOD BABIES.
PS… Check out how insanely amazing Ash looked in that dress. If that was me I would just wear that thing for the rest of my life. I’d never take it off. #smokeshow
