Brianne + Dennis’s Joy-filled Summer Wedding Day at Historic Ashland


One of Brianne’s brothers put his arm around her and grinned at the camera for a photo. Just as I was about to click the shutter someone asked a question to my left. I took my camera off my face, answered the question and brought it back up. As I was framing up the shot again, he looked down and said quietly to his sister on her wedding day, “Bri, you look really beautiful.” Melt my heart! How sweet. In the split second between those words and taking the photo for them I was transported many years in the future to my own daughter’s wedding day wishing that one of her brothers would whisper those sweet words to her like Brianne’s brother did just then. Between her two brothers, adoring father and now doting husband, Brianne does not want for loving men in her life. She and her beautiful mother are well taken care of and well loved.

The White and the Kopf families complimented each other superbly at this elegant wedding event. Rich in tradition and classic to the core, Brianne and Dennis had a beautiful day. From the dazzling mansion to the enormous reception space and expansive grounds, Historic Ashland was a perfect fit. Brianne and Dennis were married under the trees while the light danced through the leaves and the breeze brushed softly through Brianne’s veil.

The entire day was a celebration. Their wedding party was full of life, spirit and memories from their past to walk them into their future together. All the guys had a personal YETI tumblers to keep their drinks ice cold all day while the girls had beautiful matching earing sets to tie their glamerous hair and makeup looks together. Brianna’s Justin Alexander gown from Amanda Ritchey Bridal was perfection on her.

Bring On the Bash brought the music and entertainment while Tasteful Occasions pampered the guests with service that was a notch above and food that was…oh my so good. The florals by Sandra Porterfield brought life to every part of the day and it was all tied in together perfectly by a joint effort from Elysian Event Co. and Historic Ashland themselves. A lovely day through and through.

Brianne and Dennis, I am so happy that you found each other. Your laughter is contagious to everyone around you. You bring so much joy to all who know you and I am so happy to be one of them. You handled being in the spotlight with such grace and poise even though I know it is not your favorite thing. Your day was everything you had hoped it would be….a day of celebration with your family and friends. I hope you love this sample of photos from your lovely day to help you share the story of your wedding day and because I know how hard it is to wait, there is a surprise in your inbox RIGHT NOW, so go check!
