Farmers Market Wedding in Winter Park
February 15, 2014 | Ashleigh and Wil
Can I call them “fellow Torontonians” if I’m not also from Toronto? I’m pretty sure there’s a rule there, so I’ll just say how much I adored working with Ashleigh and Wil for their February, Winter Park wedding! Soft, sweet colors, the most adorable flower girls and a rustic-chic reception style gave their day the perfect mix of modern elegance, with a hint of awesome :)
Now, as much as I love my golfing clients (and I have a lot of them down here in Florida!), I’d have to say that Ashleigh and Wil may be some of my most passionate…. probably only rivaled by their friends (and also my clients) Justin and Ashley… but we’ll get to them in a later post! Ashleigh gets my “reality star” award for being on a reality show on the Golf Channel, and Wil gets my “awesome socks” award for… well, always having awesome socks! But clearly, there is much more to them than just that…
Wil and Ashleigh met here in Orlando, but eventually, Wil moved to Toronto to be with his love :) He proposed to her on a sunset picnic boat-ride and they had been anxiously planning their Winter Park wedding ever since! Even though I only met Ashleigh and Wil once before their wedding, I sort of feel like kindred spirits with them! Wil is always giving me shout-outs on his Instagram (even if they’re embarrassing photos of me working), and Ashleigh is already planning our next 4 photoshoots. They’re pretty much perfect <3

Ashleigh’s gown was by Monique Lhuillier and had a gorgeous removable ballgown skirt! LOVE!
One of my favorite parts of the day was that Wil and the guys were pampered with their own shoe-shine service!
These little ones… bestill my heart. They LOVED watching Ashleigh transform into a princess
Personal favorite – Alex and Ani golf bracelet and Jimmy Choo perfume.
A quick walk from the Alfond Inn to their ceremony at First Congregational through the streets of Winter Park
A quick wardrobe change to finish up formals!
Cue awesome photo of Justin and Ashley dancing (don’t worry Wil and Ashleigh, I got a few of you dancing at their wedding that I’ll share ;))
