Timing is everything which is especially true to Ashleigh and Jonathan as they only knew of each other in high school, shared the same circle of friends, yet connected four years after graduation which was when their love story began.
Florence, Italy, an incredibly romantic location, is where Jonathan planned an intimate and private proposal. From horseback riding through vineyards, to shopping and dinner, followed by music and candles under a gazebo, Jonathan asked Ashleigh to dance. Half way through the song he got down on one knee and asked Ashleigh to be his wife!
The Big Day
An elegant wine theme was chosen given their love for Italy and wine. To complement the theme the venue had wooden beams on the ceiling illustrating a romantic feel with cork decor and rustic barrels. The couple wanted their guests to enjoy wine tasting during cocktail hour and for dessert was a beautiful display of macarons. The Blatchford Air Hangar at Fort Edmonton Park was the perfect venue to fit all of their guests not to mention the sizeable dance floor that was filled the whole night!
Ashleigh’s favourite moment was after walking down the aisle as man and wife, she got to share a private moment and hug her husband.
Jonathan’s favourite moment was seeing Ashleigh walk through the doors. He was mesmerized by how beautiful she looked and couldn’t stop smiling.
