US Marine Corps Lieutenant David met Ashley, and he soon was in love. After only seven months of dating, Ashley and David then spent the NEXT seven months apart, as David was deployed to Afghanistan.
Back at home – Ashley and her mom, assisted by event planner Tim Komen, planned the perfect wedding. The couple married at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Downtown Pittsburgh, and celebrated with a reception at the elegant and grand Omni William Penn Hotel.
Not even the remarkably tall & elegant cake by Bella Christie Sweet Boutique could steal attention away from the beautiful bride! Alençon lace from Ashley’s mother’s veil lined her own, matching perfectly to the lace on her Vera Wang wedding gown. Contrasted against David’s dress blues uniform, this was nothing short of a gorgeous couple.
With every detail hand-selected– including the music of Pittsburgh’s own The John Parker Band— David and Ashley, along with their guests, certainly experienced a night to remember.
Ashley and David soon jetted off to Fiji, but returned to the news that David would be deployed to Japan to help with the Tsunami relief effort. But, while there, David was able to receive a call from his new wife, sharing the wonderful news that they’d soon be parents!
Now enjoying life with a new baby boy, we wish Ashley and David all the best in continuing their love story!
