A Real Wedding in Overlook

The Big Day

A lot of thinking and planning go into the preparations for a wedding; the location, the suits and dresses, the accents and accessories, and all the after-the-ceremony stuff. This fuss sometimes take us away from the essence of the wedding—the life that the couple will have together.

For Ashley and Cory, buying a house together is symbolic of the solid foundation they have built as a couple. So he asked her to marry him when they received the keys to their new house. Ashley was showing Cory around the house explaining design plans for the rooms, when she turned around and saw Cory on one knee.

The couple knew each other through a dating app and went on their first date after two months of messaging. They easily got along and have been inseparable since. Their wedding day marks their 8th anniversary as a couple, a celebration of how far they have come together.

Their wedding was lovely and intimate. The views and the sceneries at the Red Rock Canyon heightened the magic of that day. But nothing can be more memorable to the couple than their first look and their exchange of vows. The first look increased their anticipation and the exchange of vows allowed the couple to put words on how they truly feel about each other. With the people closest to their hearts, Ashley and Cory made their lifetime promise.

Ashley and Cory’s wedding is a reminder not to lose the reasons for getting married in the hustle and bustle of preparing for the big day. The day indeed must be special and memorable, but couples also need to remember and put to heart why they’re getting married in the first place.
