The story of Ashley and Gerad’s wedding is a special one for me personally as they are friends of mine. I had gotten to know them through work and watch some of their love story unfold. Ashley and Gerad requested my assistance with coordinating some of the details leading up to and on the wedding day. They chose Feather Tick n’ Thyme as the venue where they would tie the knot. I worked with a creative friend to decorate the ceremony and reception spaces. We used some foraged greenery for the tablescapes and crossed our fingers that the predicted rain wouldn’t wash away our work on the ceremony arbor.


Gerad and Ashley’s day was filled with sweet, personal details. Ashley walked down the aisle to a song that she sang and recorded for that moment as a surprise to Gerad. They chose to include a foot washing ceremony as a symbol of their commitment to serve each other. On the more nerdy side, there were some superhero details that made it into the day as well.

I felt honored to be part of their day and celebrate their joy with them! Happy anniversary, Ashley & Gerad!
