Ashleymae + Jonathan’s Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer

Mar 20, 2018



Ashleymae and Jonathan’s story began a decade before they even met with an unlikely union of two other families. In the third grade, three little blondies befriended Ashleymae and brought her (and Ashleymae’s mama) into their family. Steve + Christy welcomed Ashelymae into their home and hearts and showed their love not just with their words but with their actions.

When it was time for all the girls to think about where they were going to college, Steve + Christy revealed to Ashleymae that soon after she came into their lives, they felt like God had prompted them to start a college fund for her, and they did. Because of their radical generosity, she could go wherever her heart desired. 

She decided to go to Biola. Where she and Jonathan met and fell in love. 

Because of the radical love of all three of Ashleymae’s parents, this beautiful day was a reality. This couple’s deep and joyful commitment to one another is so evident in all they do. 



Ashleymae and Jonathan, thank you for giving me the privilege of documenting your wedding day. I know I am a far better person after having shared this season with you. Congratulation friends! 

Give Ashleymae + Jonathan a wedding gift!
