REAL WEDDINGS: ASHLEY AND CHAS
Weddings with a 20-30s vibe that come through my inbox invariably get my attention. Especially ones like this one by Ohio-based photographer, Yvonne Moryc focusing on every detail from florals to the fashion of Art Deco. My favorite part of this wedding is how today’s modern mixes so well with the moderne element of yesteryear. Said Yvonne about shooting this fabulous wedding, “Ashley and Chas were married at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Maumee, Ohio. A perfect day for a June wedding, Ashley and the girls were all done up at Ahava Spa Wellness Center in downtown Toledo. After the nuptials at St. Joseph’s, we had some wedding party fun at Walbridge Park with the bridge as our prop. The guys wanted to recreate the Abbey Road album cover, how could I say ‘no’?
Ashley’s mom, Darrah, gave a speech about Chas and Ashley during the reception and she quoted a paragraph from The Book of Qualities. Here’s what she said about Ashley: ‘Beauty is startling. She wears a gold shawl in the summer and sells seven kinds of honey at the flea market. She is young and old at once, my daughter and my grandmother. Beauty doesn’t anger easily, but she was annoyed with the journalist who kept asking her about her favorites as if she could have one favorite color or one favorite flower. She does not mind questions though and is fond of riddles. Beauty will dance with anyone who is brave enough to ask her.'”
