2023 Wedding Season Wrapped

Cue the confetti and strike up the band because folks, we've officially wrapped up the spectacular finale of our 2023 wedding season! With a whopping 84 love-filled celebrations in the books, it's safe to say that we've danced our way through a sea of unforgettable moments, laughter, and happily-ever afters. From exchanging vows to cutting the cake with pure joy, each wedding was a unique chapter in a collective love story. As the curtains close on this incredible season, we're bursting with gratitude for the lovebirds who trusted us with their special day.

To wrap up each year, our staff votes to choose our Top 10 Weddings of the Season. It was a very close call between many of them, but after much debate we present to you our Top 10 Weddings of 2023!

But first... clearly this year we were a little biased when it came to voting - however the Ash Events top two weddings of the 2023 season were of course Chelsea & Clarke and Callie & Austin's wedding days. We were so excited to give them their dream wedding days!

Chelsea and Clarke - Caledonia September 14th, 2023

Underneath majestic oak trees draped with hanging moss, couches were arranged to provide a cozy and intimate seating area for guests, allowing them to bask in the joyous atmosphere.

Chelsea looked absolutely radiant in her wedding dress which she purchased from our Charity fashion event with The Dressing Room. She scored this gorgeous gown that perfectly captured the essence of the day for only $75! Clarke wore a stylish postman blue suit from Generation Tux.

Willow Event Designs curated breathtaking multicolored florals that adorned not only the ceremony space but also graced the reception area and Chelsea's bouquet.
