I am so excited to share Ashley and Han’s gorgeous wedding!!
Ashley and Han met online, but at the time, Ashley lived in New Jersey and Han lived in Maryland. For almost a year and a half, they alternated making the two hour trip to see each other each weekend! After they got engaged, Ashley relocated to Maryland, where they live now. And now Ashley and Han are married!!
Ashley and Han began the day getting ready in separate parts of the manor house at Bohemia Overlook. Ashley and Han exchanged cards with one another, and as each one read the messages inside, they tested up. It was so sweet and such a beautiful way to start the day. After, Ashley and her bridal party had a fun champagne toast and an adorable confetti pop, and then it was wedding dress time! And during that time, the most dapper little pup showed up – dressed in his little wedding day tuxedo! Ashley and Han’s adorable dog, Bruce, came for some wedding day photos with Ashley and Han. After Ashley and Han shared their sweet first look, it was time for photos with Bruce! He had so much fun running around with Ashley and Han and snuggling for photos. He is totally adorable! Also, fun fact: Bruce’s name is now officially Bruce Lee! So cute!
After Ashley and Han’s photos, their wonderful wedding party joined us for more pictures. Ashley and Han had such an amazing wedding party. Everyone was SO sweet and kind! And the pictures of the whole group are SO gorgeous! I loved the bridesmaids’ sky blue gowns so much – and everyone had such beautiful flowers – created by Han’s aunt!
Soon after photos, it was wedding time! Ashley and Han’s wedding was on the cliffs overlooking the Elk River, and the backdrop couldn’t have been more stunning. Ashley and Han were married under a gorgeous blue sky with views of the water all around. It was so pretty!
After their wedding ceremony, Ashley and Han had a Korean Paebaek ceremony under a pretty shaded tree by the Bohemia Overlook Manor House. During this ceremony, and after tea and blessings, Han’s parents and then Ashley’s parents tossed chestnuts and dates into a cloth held by Ashley and Han. They caught a lot of dates and chestnuts! It was such a fun ceremony and a really nice joining of cultures.
After their Paebaek ceremony, it was wedding reception time! Ashley and Han entered their reception and then surprised everyone with a choreographed dance – it was so fun! After their first dance and speeches, it was cake cutting time! On top of their beautiful wedding cake was an Ashley and Han cake topper figurine, and one either side of the cake were two adorable dogs!! It was so cute!
After cake cutting, we went to the cliffs for some sunset pictures overlooking the water, and then the Bohemia Overlook staff drove us to the vineyards and a gorgeous field with a golden sunset. It was SPECTACULAR!! Ashley and Han got SO much variety in their wedding pictures; it was incredible! And every single area at Bohemia Overlook is so, so pretty! I truly believe it is the most beautiful wedding venue in Maryland. Just wait until you see all of their gorgeous photos!! They are seriously SO pretty. I have SO many favorites that I can’t even fit them all in one blog post! We had so much variety and these two are such pros at photos now. I am so excited to share these because they are STUNNING!!
Ashley had Han had SO many fun touches at their wedding! During the ceremony, Ashley and Han had fans for guests to stay cool and adorable ribbon wands for their family and friends to wave as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife! At the wedding reception, guests had cake packed up in sweet bags for the trip home, fun glow sticks were passed out on the dance floor, and a late night snack bar opened up with different varieties of popcorn. Ashley and Han are so thoughtful and it is so clear that they put a lot of thought and attention into planning their wedding day. It was gorgeous and we truly were so fortunate to have such AMAZING weather. When I checked the forecast early in the week, it showed rain showers – but Saturday was perfect! It was gorgeous and sunny, the sky was blue, and it wasn’t even too hot (and the breeze from the Elk River felt wonderful!). It was just a perfect day – in every way!
Ashley and Han, you two are two of the sweetest people. Kelsey and I are so, so happy for you two and we are so honored that we got to share your special day with you alongside your family and friends. It was a GORGEOUS wedding and such an amazing day. You planned every single detail so well and it was so wonderful to see your beautiful vision come to life! Congratulations on your marriage and all of the wonderful life moments ahead. We are so happy for you two!! Enjoy some highlights from your beautiful wedding day and have an incredible time on your honeymoon in St. Lucia!!
