Ashley & Aaron
Wedding Date: December 12th 2015
So I’ve got a fairy tale for you! Two Renaisance Festival actors–King and Queen to be exact–fall hopelessly in love, light lanterns under the open sky of Lake Minnetonka, and live happily ever after! Well, the ending is not yet written but I sense this story will be one for a lifetime. Aaron quite literally pulled off his best performance of his career surprising the lovely Ashley with a proposal, getting down on one knee during one of their rehearsed skits. The whole cast was in on it as the lines of the approved script wandered off track until a ring made its way onto her trembling finger. In that moment, she decided to let down her hair and trust him, and said yes! Since then, these two have lived their pseudo Disney dream lives, even choosing Orlando for their honeymoon to hang out with the cast of Tangled and the movie most dear to their own story.
This day had it all from crowns, to frying pans, to Harry Potter wands, to small bags looking like it held special pixie dust. The day started in the quaintness of the small historic Trinity Episcopal Church and off they went to see the world, and not just from a window. The sky’s royal blue glow at twilight made for some surreal moments as Ashley and Aaron took in their first minutes as husband and wife. Leaving the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres reception, I couldn’t help humming with a smile and thinking that Now is where their life begins.
