When we first spied Ashley and Garritt’s wedding, our team was pretty sure it took place on the East Coast somewhere, so you can imagine how surprised we were when we realized this fab venue is in Valencia, California! Say what? So all you Cali brides looking for a pretty place, you must check out today’s wedding! We love our sweet story from the bride, Ashley!
From the bride, Ashley:
I had always dreamed of the perfect wedding and when I saw Bridgeport, I knew that was the perfect location! It was exactly my style: simple yet elegant! It seemed that after we booked the location everything else was falling into place. Next, was to find the perfect photographer. Other photographers had fell through and when I found Mariel I then realized why. I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to capture my special day. The day went so fast, and to be able to look back on all our pictures was a wonderful gift. They told a story and she caught so much we had missed. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was the photo booth, it was so fun to be able to see everyone’s pictures. I couldn’t have done everything without my mother, close family friend, Maid of Honor, and the support of my husband. Things were at times stressful but I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
