Ashley and Ryan were married at the beautiful White Fence Farm in Trade, TN. The two met while attending Appalachian State University and fell crazy head over heels in love for one another. Ashley and Ryan welcomed their adorable son into their family right before graduation and soon after moved back to the Raleigh area. Boone always carried a special place in their hearts and the knew they wanted their family and friends to enjoy the area they called home together. Tucked right in the mountains right outside of Boone, White Fence Farm was the perfect venue to help tell their love story.
As guests arrived on Friday the mountains were overcast with clouds and rain continued through Saturday afternoon. Within minutes before the ceremony the rain cleared, the tents were opened and everyone was able to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Appalachian Mountains. During the ceremony Ashley and Ryan not only recited their vows to one another but wanted to share their exchange of love with their son by having him baptized. There wasn’t a dry eye in the audience! The rest of the evening was filled with touching toasts to the new bride and groom, lively dancing, amazing barbecue by the bride’s family and a sparkler send off that lit up the mountain night sky. Congratulations Ashley and Ryan!
