A Handmade Vintage Circus Wedding: Ashley + Ricky – Part 1

Today I have such a sweet + fun-filled wedding. Ashley + Ricky were inspired by street fairs and carnivals and the circus! Ashley actually said that her obsession with popcorn probably started the whole thing! (and Ashley, I am obsessed with popcorn too, so nothing wrong with that!)

From that, they realized they love everything about street fairs and carnivals! The food, the colors, the sounds, the crowds and the spirit of fun. Ashley + Ricky really wanted their wedding to just be fun and represent them. They love dancing, donuts, live music, craft beer, street tacos, being outdoors, did I mention popcorn, and let’s not forget tents! They decided to put all of that into one day and with that you have nothing less than a circus! :) Thanks so much to the lovely + talented Katie Neal Photo for sharing the photos and congrats to Ashley + Ricky for throwing a wedding that just screams you two!
