Blackhaven Wedding Gardens Wedding: Ashley & Hayden

I can’t gush enough about Ashley and Hayden! These two are the sweetest couple, and their love story is one of my favorites! They met when they were only 16 years old in their high school English class. Both had a secret crush on the other, but were too shy to say anything. So naturally, they did what any shy teenager would do – they became friends! Years later, they reconnected during summer break during college. Sparks flew and they went on their first date!

They spent the first year of their relationship in a long distance romance – Ashley went to Knoxville to finish her senior year, and Hayden stayed in Lebanon, TN for his senior year. Despite the distance, Hayden drove to Knoxville every single weekend to see Ashley – he was such a dedicated boyfriend! His love and devotion paid off though! He proposed and Ashley said yes!

Their wedding at Blackhaven Wedding Gardens are simply beautiful. I loved the neutral color palette Ashley chose for their decor – light grey, white, blush pink with a pop of greenery. The neutrals offered a soft and romantic theme to their garden-inspired wedding. The gardens were so pretty. The wedding was small and intimate, but filled with so much love!

Congratulations Ashley and Hayden! Thank you for letting me take part of your special day. xoxo.
