Earlier this year, we had the pleasure to work with Ashley and Rosser for their beautiful and fun wedding at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, MD. Woodend is one of our favorite venues; the beautiful Georgian style mansion and grounds make it suitable for an elegant outside-inside affair. This was a very special wedding for our team! Ashley is the daughter of Woodend’s event director Rebecca. Over the years we have worked with Rebecca and the Woodend team a lot; it was an honor to work with her for her daughter’s special day. Rodney at Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey did a wonderful job capturing the whole day, the photos are stunning. Occasions Caterers did a phenomenal job with the food, as per usual!
Ashley started the day getting ready with her parents and bridesmaids in the bridal suite at Woodend.
Meanwhile, Rosser and his guys arrived just in time for the ceremony
We love how they set-up the ceremony right in front of the Portico! The grounds of Woodend made for a lovely backdrop.
Following the ceremony, the couple took advantage of the gorgeous light for portraits with Rodney Bailey.
The tent and house were decorate with seasonal and bright blooms. We love the mantle with childhood photos! Cocktail hour took place on the lawn and inside the house.
To start the night, Ashley and Rosser were introduced for the first time as husband and wife and then went into their first dance.
Dinner included a welcome by Ashley’s dad, heartfelt toasts and amazing food by Occasions Caterers.
Following dinner, Ashley and Rosser danced with their parents prior to opening the floor for their guests.
The night ended with a cake cutting, bouquet toss and more dancing!
Congrats Ashley and Rosser! We wish you a happy marriage!
