Morilee Featured Bride: Ashley

A true social swoon, Ashley and Jordan had first met through mutual friends, but it was Jordan’s direct message over Instagram that really brought the couple together! Shortly into dating, the two were together in downtown Indianapolis standing on the bridge over the Canal. It was there that Jordan told Ashley he was going to marry her, and propose right on that very bridge. After a while, when the couple was ready to make the commitment, the bridge was under construction! Jordan was determined to wait it out and once the bridge reopened he took the plunge and asked Ashley to marry him. Of course, she said yes! 

Ashley brought her mom, grandmother, and mother-in-law to go dress shopping with her. After trying on some gowns, she put on our Rosa dress. The moment Ashely stepped out of the dressing room, her grandmother announced “That’s the one!” Thinking that finding her dream dress couldn’t be so easy, Ashley was in denial and left without the gown. She went home, but couldn’t stop thinking about the Rosa, and knew it had to be the dress for her! 

Ashley floated down the aisle in our Rosa gown, a contemporary take on the traditional A-line. The delicate bodice is covered in cascading crystal beaded, embroidered appliqués, while a plunging v-neckline with a sheer net inset and sides add a touch of sultry. The double satin bands help accent the waist and covered buttons along the back keep things traditional into the romantic flowing skirt.

The couple had their ceremony at Jordan’s family church. It was beautiful to be surrounded by so many memories there while getting married. Their ceremony was held at the romantic Finely Creek Vineyard, a place full of gorgeous greenery and rustic charm with modern touches. Jordan and Ashely kept their affair simple, letting the beauty of the barn’s reclaimed shine.

While there were so many magical moments and beautiful memories the couple shared on their wedding day, Ashley said that the best part was just being able to spend the day with their closest family and friends. She told us how she and Jordan are surrounded by the best people and that the love and support really came through for them on their wedding day!
