A wedding is much more than a gorgeous gown, vibrant flowers, and a breathtaking venue. While Ashley and Shawn’s sweet celebration in Forks, Washington had all of those elements, it’s the sentiment and significance of their occasion that truly stands out. Their wedding served as a confirmation of their commitment to one another and the first step towards a lifetime of love. It’s easy to see the excitement and passion emanating from the high school sweethearts in these stunning images captured by Samantha McFarlen.
The first page of Ashley and Shawn’s love story was written when Ashley was a junior and Shawn was a senior. Ashley’s red hair caught the eye of the upperclassman, and he found her to be strikingly humorous. Ashley was flattered and thought him to be quite charming as well. For their first date, Shawn invited Ashley over to his mom’s house to enjoy the comedy classic, She’s the Man. It wasn’t long after till Shawn was thinking She’s the One. “Even though we were just in high school, I knew right away,” says Shawn. When you know, you know, and Ashley knew it too.
