Ashley & Nick | A Villanova Campus Wedding | Philadelphia, PA

Wow wow wow! This day left me speechless so many times! I had been looking forward to Ashley & Nick’s big day since the moment we first exchanged emails! You may remember their Wissahickon engagement session where we popped not one…but SIX bottles of champagne. Well their wedding day was full of just as much excitement! I just adore Ashley and when she kept exclaiming “I am so excited!!” throughout the entire day, I just couldn’t help but exclaim “Me too!!” every time :)

Their ceremony took place at the GORGEOUS St. Thomas of Villanova Church and to say that it was breathtaking would be an understatement! Along with Villanova’s entire campus! We ended the night at RiverCrest Golf Club where the party certainly did not stop! These two and their guests LOVED to dance!

As always, a few of my favorite parts from their big day :)

  • I already said it, but Ashley exclaiming “I am so excited!!” all day long was a huge highlight of the day! I love getting to share in the excitement!

  • Ashley & Nick had a blast of a bridal party! You could tell they are so loved!

  • Ashley & Nick are seriously the most thoughtful and intentional people! They had gifts and notes for each other and so many of their loved ones. Each gift was so thoughtful and personal! They even gifted me with an adorable welcome sign and a sweet handwritten card. Cue allll the tears! I am so grateful!

  • During their engagement session, we took a few fun individual photos with champagne bottles with the intention of making life-size cardboard cut outs of them. Well they showed up at the reception and I could not stop cracking up! They were a HUGE hit with everyone!

  • Golden Hour - Need I say more? ;) But in all seriousness, their portraits from around campus and RiverCrest are some of my favorites ever!

Ashley & Nick, thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of your big day! I am just SO excited for the both of you and hope you are loving your time in Hawaii! :)

Much love,


Thanks to all of the wonderful vendors!
