Real Wedding: Mark & Ashley

Oh, Monday. I’m having a rough day already. But, I suspect it will perk up, especially after I’m done looking at these adorable DIY wedding pictures.

Ashley and Mark wed at Mark’s family home in Raleigh, North Carolina. What I love most about this wedding is how personal, understated and comfortable it is. They wanted just a simple wedding surrounded by the people they love most. Ashley carried a classic bouquet in green, yellow and white and carried those colors throughout the rest of the reception. Her favorite food, peanut butter and jelly, was also featured in the adorable hor’s devours. Plus, their “how I met” story is absolutely heart melting. Thank you Sarah of Whitmeyer photography for sharing this adorable wedding! [All images submitted via Two Bright Lights].


Ashley and mark were introduced by Ashley’s cousin, Tracy, who lived across the street from Mark. Tracy kept telling Mark, “Ashley is your future wife” and continued to tell Ashley, “Mark is your future husband”. Both Ashley and Mark brushed Tracy’s remarks off without knowing that Tracy was speaking the truth! When the two finally met, Mark walked up to Ashley and said, ” I guess I should introduce myself to my future wife!!” And low and behold….the two were wedded at Mark’s Parent’s home in Raleigh on September 10th!

The details of the event were simple, but very classic. The colors were green, white with a splash of pink and yellow. The look was very natural. One of Ashley’s favorite foods is peanut butter and jelly, so the caterers made little heart-shaped pb&j appetizers. With such a lush, gorgeous backdrop, you don’t really need outdoor decor!

The toasts were done inside the home, while cocktails and dinner were served by the pool.

Congrats again to Mark & Ashley! I wish you a lifetime full of happiness 🙂
