Though they’d initially planned for a spring wedding, the pandemic allowed the couple to realize the winter wedding of their dreams. The bride’s two veils, both cathedral and fingertip length, were decorated with lace and beading to commemorate the shift in wedding season. Ashley wore a custom pearl bracelet made from her grandmother’s heirloom strand. After dancing the night away at the reception, the newlyweds drove away in a blue vintage convertible.
