Ashley & Justin’s Gorgeous Eagles Theatre Wedding in Wabash

Ashley and Justin first met by chance, when she walked into his dentist office in Peru. These two just fit together incredibly well from the first time they talked, so by the time they had their first date, it felt like they had known each other forever. After two years, they tied the knot with a gorgeous Eagles Theatre wedding in Wabash.

From the first time Ashley and Justin talked, they got along from the start with similar lives and experiences. They both have children with similar backgrounds and similar families, so they just connected so well. Ashley said by the time they went on their first date, they felt like they had known each other forever. Justin proposed while they were on a trip to Florida, and of course Ashley said yes!

They were married at Eagles Theatre in downtown Wabash, Indiana, which was newly renovated and reopened this year. They hosted their wedding ceremony and reception in the Parkview Ballroom, located on the fourth floor of the Eagles Theatre building. Ashley and Justin hosted an intimate wedding, with their closest family and friends in attendance. I loved how the space was perfectly set up for both the ceremony and reception. Their ceremony was in front of the stage in the corner, with the reception set up on the opposite side of the room near the gorgeous windows.

The florals for their wedding were some of the most stunning I have seen! What’s Blooming in Peru did an incredible job with all the flowers for the day, and I loved that they were able to just run with Ashley’s vision of beautiful fall colors, and they absolutely blew her away with what they came up with.

Ashley’s son, daughter, and mom spent the afternoon getting ready with her, and I loved getting to spend time with her family. Her daughter was the flower girl, and her son walked her down the aisle to Justin during the wedding ceremony. Ashley and Justin wrote their own vows to exchange during the ceremony, and it was hard for me to hold back the tears as they shared their hearts with one another.

After the ceremony, we explored downtown Wabash together for some epic golden hour bride and groom portraits, including the Eagles Theatre sign outside that had their names on it. Such a fun touch of detail!

I loved that Ashley and Justin made the reception so relaxed and fun. Their family and friends just hung out, ate, and talked the night away, eating delicious food, chocolates, and cake. The children played all night long, and they wrapped up the evening with a showing of Kung Fu Panda in the Eagles Theatre, including popcorn and candy for the children.

Ashley and Justin, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your incredible wedding day. You two are a perfect match, and it’s evident you love each other and your children incredibly well. I wish you nothing but joy and love as you continue to grow in your marriage, and I wish you all the best!
