It was midday as we arrived at the brand new venue, Inn on Highlands, in Elgin valley. Not a cloud in sight and a blistering sun threatening to melt our shoes right off our feet. Ashleigh’s mom, whom we had also met approximately a year ago, passed me her flip flops, which I did not refuse. She could see my wedding boots was going to be the end of me… The few hours until the ceremony was certainly cooler. Inn on Highlands is beautifully tucked away between large apple orchards and while regularly housing guests from other venues in the area, has now opened their own doors for fresh farm styled weddings, with Ashleigh at the helm. We’ll be keeping an eye on this little treasure!
Bob and Ashleigh blew us away with their unquenchable love and like for each other. For those who know them, watching the two of them say their vows and laugh and dance, must’ve been such a treat. It certainly was for us! Their larger-than-life group of friends and their incredibly inviting family made this day one of the biggest celebrations we’ve seen – start to finish. We can go on about them, we really can. We simply adore this couple.
Bob, may you always look at your beautiful bride the way you looked at her on your wedding day. Ash, may your laugh never fade and your loving smiles at Bob never end. Thank you for the greatest privilege of capturing this amazing day!
