Ashley & Todd | Wilson Creek Winery

When I first met with Ashley, she told me all about her big blended family and how fun and crazy they all were together.  She told me of how her and Todd met because they lived next door to each other (how cute is that!?).  She told me about their two lives becoming one big full house of lots of love.
Its totally true.
They combined their homes and, with one baby together, now have a grand total of SEVEN kids.  Yes.  SEVEN.  Whoa!!  However, while I was apart of it that day, it was really cool to watch.  They all seemed to genuinely love one another… his kids, her kids, it didn’t seem to make much a difference to anybody.  They all loved each other.  Awesome.
Their wedding was at the beautiful Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula.  And while it was a busy hustle and bustle of activity (lots of people), things settled down once the ceremony began and the two committed their lives together alongside their families.  I had the chance to work with my dear friend and fabulous photographer Kellie Schneider.  Ya’ll, she’s amazing.  Check out her work at Little Blue Bow Photography here!!

Ashley’s dad has had a range of health struggles over the past several months.  Days before, Ashley was unsure if he was even going to be able to make it to the ceremony.  But dad was a champ… there was no way he was going to miss his daughters wedding!  Once he arrived, the party was ready to begin!

I kinda love the photo above and the photo below.  The whole fam poured sand together into one vase symbolizing their joining together of lives.  It was a little hectic as they all tried to get their sand in … once the kids were finished Todd’s reaction was priceless.  Whew.  That was crazy!
