Ashley & J.D.-June 6, 2015
October 25, 2017
I’m not sure how to put into words of how I felt on my wedding day but as I write this down I remember a sea of emotions I felt. As I woke up that morning and sat on the porch at the Inn at Quarry Ridge, after about a straight month of rain, I remember thanking God and thinking Oh’ what a perfect day with blue clear sky. As the day continued so did the emotions, a father’s love as my dad saw me for the first time in my dress and the river of love I felt from our family and friends as they helped to make that day perfect for us. Seeing JD for the first time and thinking of the unanswered prayers and paths that led me to him and thanking God for second chances. Praying he didn’t see me and start to run. I’ve got a funny feeling he thought the same about me. And as I put one foot in front of the other, I knew that our love, it just comes natural and I am blessed to have found a love without end, amen!
When we danced to our song “Give it all we got tonight” by George Straight, I remember thinking I saw God today, a great day made perfect by his work. The greatest moment is when I forgot about the perfect flowers, the perfect dress, cake, or decorations, because I had finally found my perfect partner in life. Nothing else seemed to matter because love is everything.
Now, I may have gotten a little carried away with the decorations and details but it was the best day of my life. Some of our guests may have said our venue was in the middle of nowhere but if you haven’t experienced the Inn at Quarry Ridge you don’t know what your missing, not only will it take your breath away but the owners are absolutely amazing. They truly care about you and work with you to accommodate your wishes and help to make sure your day runs smoothly. We couldn’t imagine having our wedding anywhere else.
