Elkhart Wedding | Backyard Wedding on the St. Joe | Ashley & Marcus

admin

I've patiently waited to post this blog. I've sat here with my hand on the publish button for a week. I absolutely adore Ashley and Marcus and their wedding. I loved the personal touches and how they let their personalities show in the details. Ashley & Marc were married on the St. Joe River in Bristol, near Elkhart, Indiana. It was a private wedding in Ashley's mother's backyard. The ceremony was romantic and the reception was full of laughter. I don't think the day could have gone any better than it did.Elkhart Backyard Wedding_001 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_002 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_003 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_004 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_005 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_006 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_007 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_008 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_009 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_010 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_011 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_012 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_013 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_014 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_015 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_016 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_017 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_018 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_019 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_020 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_021 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_022 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_023 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_024 Elkhart Backyard Wedding_025The rain was romantic. Honestly, when it started to sprinkle Ashley said, "I love rain." It couldn't have fit this day more perfectly.
