Ben and Ashley are such a chill couple who are so much fun to be around! It was a blast to photograph their Soda Rock Winery wedding last month and I’m so excited to be sharing some photos from their day!
Ben and Ashley are both from California but temporarily live in London. It was interesting to try and schedule a phone call around UK time… But we managed to do it and I found out all about these two and how much they love each other!
They met while working for the same company. With their mutual work friends, they were at a sports bar watching the Niners and Seahawks game. Ashley told me that she put Ben in the friend-zone right away! So funny how that works.
Now the two are happier than ever! They like to do a lot of wine related things like wine tasting, so Soda Rock Winery was the perfect venue for them. Ben hadn’t even seen it yet when Ashley booked it! She said she’s a gut person and really liked the vibe of it. I think her gut was right because it was a great venue for their big day! I also happen to absolutely love Soda Rock. Such a beautiful and rad venue!
There were a few things that I knew I needed to capture this day. Ashley told me they were most excited about taking photos at sunset, which is my favorite time of day too! She had also seen a photo in the book on display at Soda Rock that she loved the look of. They were taken from inside the barn with light streaming through. I think we nailed it!
A few more important details of the day were that instead of writing their own vows, they wrote letters to each other to read while they got ready for the big day. Ben’s friend and the wife of the best man was also the one to officiate their wedding!
Overall, it was an amazing day and I’m so stoked we were able to capture everything important to Ben and Ashley!
