Ashley & Chris – Winona, MN wedding

For most, waking up to rain on a Saturday morning would normally mean rescheduling some outdoor activities that you may have had planned. When it’s your wedding day, it could cause some unwanted anxiety – even though it’s been said that rain on your wedding day is good luck, no one really wants it to rain on your wedding day.

For Ashley & Chris, luck was on their side as the rain eventually ended after arriving at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church. The sun also came out and it’s rays warmed the air outside making for a steamy afternoon. I’m sure most anyone would accept a humid heat over a downpour anyday.

After their ceremony, Ashley & Chris loaded into the limo to have a little pre-celebration of their own with the bridal party. After some dancing on the bar at ZaZa’s Pub & Pizzeria, a shot or two and plenty of smiles from everyone, we made it to Visions Event Center for the wedding reception. Tastefully decorated with colors coordinating with the bridesmaid’s bouquets & groomsmen’s vests, the reception definitely had that “wow factor”. Everyone in attendance had a great time and as the first dances began, many surrounded the dance floor to watch father/daughter & mother/son dances before Ashley & Chris had their first dance “under the stars”. Afterwards, the dance floor opened up to many eager guests awaiting their chance to show their moves.

It’s always a wonderful sight to see so many family members & friends gather to help two people in love celebrate that love for each other. May there be many more celebrations in your future and congratulations again, Ashley & Chris!
