Southern Shine :: Ashley+Eric

This wedding is a gem.  Ashley and Eric Nygren are an enchanting Chicago couple and their September 29 Cedarwood Outdoor Cathedral Ceremony and gray, silver and dreamy white Candlelight & Crystal Reception was filled to the brim with thoughtful touches, a fall warming fire and electric dance party with The Nash Vegas All-Star Band.  Ashley has impeccible taste (you’re welcome Eric!)  and together with her mom, Debora Haynes, crafted a stylish southern celebration with both high-brow and rustic elements (like serving Old Smokey Apple Pie Moonshine from a 1950 Chevy Truck Bar “Watering Hole” during happy hour in the Cedarwood Barn!)  Ashley mixed family heirlooms (her grandmother’s wedding rings were tied to her bouquet and her grandfather’s bible was carried by the ring bearer to the ceremony) with novelties like engraved silver cake forks, monogramed pillows, customized lawn games and vintage paper decor including heart garland and framed love quotes.

Ashley and Eric’s delightful wedding photos by Photographix will take you through the wonderland of their wedding day. Gorgeous couple, gorgeous fashion and sensational styling (nods to their love of literature and wine) are balanced with fun details.  We love Ashley’s “grooms survival kit” for Eric and the adorable “kids korner” goodies including custom coloring books featuring the love story of Ashely and Eric!  Resources at the end of this post.

 

Ashley and Eric, you are stunning and we know your life together will be superb. We admire your amazing parents and families. Thanks to Jen and Ann of Photographix for sharing photos with us.  Resources below – if you have questions for Ashley, leave a comment!
