Cook Forest Wedding : Ash + Justin

January 24, 2015

He stood behind a fallen log in a clearing in the forest. She scooped up the flowing layers of her gown and walked towards him. He turned and grabbed her for a kiss. They held hands, laughing, as they walked to the ceremony together.

Ash and Justin exchanged vows in the middle of the forest, surrounded by towering trees and slow moving rivers. There were lots of laughs and plenty of happy tears. Their ceremony was incredibly intimate and special, with only a small number of their closest family, friends, and precious pup in attendance.

After friends and family had left, we went exploring in the woods. They walked through creeks, hiked up trails, and played near canoes.
