Wedding Date: July 13, 2013

“As a little girl, I spent a lot of time in my grandmother’s bridal shop, Dar-Lynn’s Bridal. I remember looking at all of the dresses and dreaming of the day I would get to walk down the aisle in one of those beautiful gowns. So naturally, the first place I went after my engagement was my granny’s bridal shop! After many hugs and some quick celebrating, we got right down to business—finding the dress! With nearly my whole family there to pull dresses and give opinions, it did not take long to spot the perfect dress. Once I put it on, I knew it was everything I wanted, and it was perfect!” –Ashley
