MICHELLE & KEN: Elegance Abounds at Oglebay Resort

A true visual feast – Michelle and Kenneth Ashe are two of my most beautiful clients ever!  These Atlanta residents opted to host their wedding weekend in Michelle’s hometown of Wheeling, WV on August 28.  Their wedding celebration at Oglebay Resort’s Palmer House  symbolized their impeccable taste and desire for upscale elegance merged with outdoor summer ambiance.  Ken and Michelle’s documentary is fused with exceptional detailing, as well as personalities and candor.  Michelle’s shoe shots are the favorites of my shooting career!  I am also particularly over the moon for Michelle and Ken’s portraits post ceremony – these would also count for some of my personal favorite shots, both as a former fashion shooter and current wedding documentarian.  Michelle has the kind of face that poets and authors  try to immortalize in mere words and Ken is movie star handsome – the two of them together?  WOW!!!!  (And Ken’s absolute love and caring for his mom gets him a couple of extra gold stars – fantastic guy!!)

And the reception?  I am a huge fan of tented receptions and this one was the most elegant that I have yet to document.  Michelle incorporated authentic Italian postcards into the centerpieces of each table.  Guests found themselves dining in Venice, Rome, and Tuscany, all while  relaxing on the lawn of the Palmer House!  A lively and festive evening followed, with toasts, sumptuous foods, and warm camaraderie enjoyed amongst friends and family members who gathered to celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs. Ashe.

I loved the opportunity  to work with Ken and Michelle – I hope to count them as lifelong friends, not just clients!

Much Love!  Melissa
