St. Petersburg Wedding at the Vinoy

March 7, 2015  |  Ashley and Marc

Ashley and Marc have one of the cutest “when we met” stories I’ve ever heard! Marc, who was a freshman at a brand new school, signed up for Latin class – not knowing that it was for 7th and 8th graders. Cue Ashley, who was sitting at the back of the class, wondering why a high schooler was taking a middle school class. After a reasonable amount of teasing him (with the help of her friends) she made special notice of his blushing ears. You could say it was puppy love – but you’d be wrong.

Fast forward many, many years – missed connections, bad timing and soul searching, and they found each other again when Ashley needed an escort to the Debutante ball. Marc was a senior at Yale at the time, and may or may not have ditched his current girlfriend to hang out with Ashley while ballroom dancing and wearing a snazzy tux.

Marc proposed on their anniversary – December 30th. After a surprise engagement party, Ashley and Marc began their wedding planning journey! They chose an Interfaith wedding, combining elements of the Jewish and Christian cultures. Their St. Petersburg wedding reception had a travel theme with the tables being named for places they’ve traveled. Their head table was named “Hawaii”, which was the first place they would travel as newlyweds!

Updated on Jan 2, 2018 – we are thrilled to share the birth of Ashley and Marc’s baby, Josie! Check out their maternity and newborn session here: https://kristenweaverblog.com/children/lifestyle-newborn-home-session/
