Josh and Ashleigh's wedding was.... just breathtakingly beautiful to say the least. Set in the hill country off a road filled with farm stands, rolling hills, and the best bbq you can find in Texas, the ceremony backed up to gorgeous Onion Creek. The sound of the water rushing was divine. Pecan Trees covered to property and created a perfect arch over the ceremony site. It couldn't have been more perfect. Ashleigh is a graphic designer and already has an artistic eye, so photographing the decor was so fun for me. The interior of Pecan Grove had just been refinished and let me tell you, even the men's restroom was photo worthy (you bet a photo of it will be included in the final wedding gallery). Josh and Ashleigh live in D.C. so almost everyone had come in from out of town. Everyone had a blast and I've never seen people dance like the people here!!! Getting down and funky and it reminded me of my college days when I didn't have a care in the world.. There was so much love - watching them do their first look and Ashleigh doing a twirl so Josh could see her dress was one of my favorite moments. Everything just seemed so personal. Josh's grandfather officiated the wedding and Ashleigh's brother came forward at the beginning of the ceremony talking about a message that really hit me hard.. Maybe it was that paired with this view of onion creek and the sun making it's way through the trees. I don't know, but it sure was beautiful and something we all deserve to hear. It was a message from Friedrich Nietzsche's The Heaviest Burden. I'll sum it up for you below, but you can see the original piece here.
