We can’t find the right words to describe how much we loved Ashley and Terik’s wedding at Barn at the Springs. The barn was buzzing with a host of loved ones helping them to make the barn look just perfect for the celebration. The ceremony was set to be outdoors initially but changed to indoors at the last minute due to a rainstorm moving in. We wouldn’t have changed a thing though because everything turned out just right! Everyone pitched in to set the ceremony up inside and make it look absolutely magical as Ashley and Terik prepared for the day. Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer
Ashley was preparing in the charming Bridal suite at the barn, surrounded by her sweet Bridesmaids, Mother and future Mother in-law. She donned her contagious smile the entire time even with the threat of rain and having to make a few last minute changes to the ceremony setup. There was a lot of genuine laughter and happy memories being made in that little room. We absolutely adored how much care went into making sure even the smallest details were so carefully laid out for Ashley, from her dress to the earrings that were lent to her for the day. We loved how fun everyone enjoyed the moment as they prepared for the day, that time can often be so stressful but they seemed to have an absolute blast! Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer
Ashley’s first look with her Dad could have brought anyone to tears. It was so special to witness an often overlooked moment of a Dad seeing his daughter for the final time before she makes her walk down the aisle to change her name. I think Ashley’s Dad was left breathless when he finally saw her in her dress and veil…as a Bride! They shared some happy tears and endless smiles. Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer
Terik and his guys worked hard to make sure the ceremony set up was perfectly in place before they retreated to the Groom’s suite. There were words of well wishes, lots of laughter and tons of excitement for the rest of the day. We loved that Terik’s Grandpa, who was also his best man, helped him prepare for the day. Terik’s Mother also gave Terik the final inspection and relished in the moments before he was to see his Bride for the first time.
Terik and Ashley’s first look was so intimate and sweet. They were of course all smiles and nervous anticipation for the moment they finally got to lay eyes on one another. We really loved the way Terik paused and took in the whole sight of his Bride and adored each detail before they moved in for a hug. The two took a little walk and enjoyed a few quiet moments before the day moved forward to the ceremony.
The ceremony was so perfect! The details of the décor were perfect, the wedding party looked amazing and the guests were absorbed in each precious moment of the ceremony. In perfect timing, the rainstorm began and made a beautiful and soothing background for the entire event. We hear rain is good luck so Ashley and Terik must be extra lucky based on the timing! One of the Groomsman played the guitar and sang a special song for the couple before they shared their first kiss as Husband and Wife which was absolutely beautiful.

The reception was nothing short of amazing! They had the most fun dessert bar with homemade hand pies that were made by the family, an adorable coffee and cocoa station and of course all they best food. There were some super sweet toasts, lots of fun in the photo booth and so many memories made. We adored the first dance and how the rest of the party disappeared just for a few moments as they swayed. Of course as photographers, we really loved how willing Ashley and Terik were to brave the rain for a fun photo opportunity. These two are just so sweet and fun to be around, we can’t get over the joy of their day even as the time passes. We feel richly blessed to have been able to witness a day as wonderful as this one. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jones!
