Ashley Mendenhall & Grant Fitzgerald were married at The Maxwell on September17th, 2021. These two planned a classic wedding with traditional elements, lots of lace and greenery, and plenty of romance. And that is just what they got!

The Preparation

The bridesmaid’s dresses were varied and incredibly pretty. Some were in floral prints, while others were more of a blush tint, and they alternated when standing for the ceremony. The effect was soft and breathtaking. Ashley’s gown was beautiful, with plenty of lace, sparkle and just the right amount of cut out elements. She looked amazing!

First Touch

Instead of a first look, Ashley & Grant decided instead on a “First Touch.” They also made sure to pray together before the met at the altar. Grant shared that it was hard not to peek at Ashley while they were standing at the fire place. The images of them are so sweet.

The Ceremony

The Details

Two colors that always go together are black and white, and with floral touches on the dresses and as part of the decor, the elegant table settings and indoor/outdoor places to gather, this wedding felt luxurious and intimate.

The Reception

Send Off

The newly minted husband and wife were dispatched to their new life amongst cheers and rows of sparklers. Congratulations Ashley and Grant!
