I can’t even believe I’m sitting down to write the blog post for Cassidy and Mike’s wedding day! Two years ago I received an inquiry from Cassidy asking if I had her date available. We met at the famous Little Fat Gretchen’s so that we could meet in person, and I KNEW these two were going to fit into the Ashlea Snell Bride Tribe just perfectly! At the end of our conversation, I asked, “Are you a hugger?” To Cassidy and she said not really! Micheal, the groom, whose from North Carolina said I am! haha Later on at their engagement session when I saw Cassidy again I gave her the biggest hug (If you know me, I’m just a hugger!) But I said, “Oh! I’m so sorry! I forgot you don’t like hugs!” She said, “Well I like your hugs, and I’m getting used to them!!” I just love this girl! She is SO sweet, so beautiful and Michael is SO lucky to have found her! These two are just perfect in every way for one another! June 8, 2019, was set and it was nearly eight years from the very first time that Cassidy said “YES!” to being his girlfriend! On August 19, 2017, she said the real-time “yes” when Mike proposed in front of both parents and a few of their really close friends after they finished their first ever triathlon!
Their wedding day, June 8th, finally arrived and we showed up at the Village Gardens with a gorgeous day on the radar! absolutely no rain, and almost a 75 degree weather day!
We started to prep her details, and Cassidy was able to arrive and just relax and breathe almost thirty minutes before everyone else got to the venue. I know she LOVED this! She was so relaxed, and ready to get married! She got to see all the beautiful details that helped make up her day, being photographed!
As the day began rolling, Cassidy and all her girls could not stop smiling. She had the most beautiful bridesmaids surrounding her! They truly were just her closest friends, and they just wanted to help make everything perfect ( which they totally did!!)
They read their vows, and said I do and kissed when they officially became husband and wife. Every detail of this day was just so intimate and beautiful!
Cassidy and Mike, we love you!! I am SO thankful I’ve gotten to know you guys over the past two years, and you’ll forever be a sweet friend!! Your kind spirits and loving personalities are so refreshing! <3 I hope these truly bring back to you the perfect love you felt on your wedding day over and over again!!!
