Ashley & Peter

What a beautiful day to reminisce on for Ashley and Peter. Our friendship with May's began from the moment we met them at their engagement session. We had so much fun spending time with them, and really getting to know Peter and Ashley's love story. Then you flash forward to their wedding day, and it was honestly an emotional full circle for us. We could not have wished for a more perfect day for Ashley and Peter.

Number One Tip for Future Phocus Couples to Consider About The Wedding Day: "Delegate tasks to your vendors and friends/family who volunteer to help! We wouldn't have had such a relaxing day if our vendors weren't so amazing."

We always take pride in having a vendor community for this exact reason! We love creating relationships with the ones we will be working side by side with on the most important day of your lives! Having a team that works together will be able to tackle any curve ball thrown not he wedding day. The team of vendors we had on the May's wedding day was AMAZING! Not a detail was missed, and we all had each other's backs to make sure everything was perfect!!

What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? "Peter's reaction when he sees me walking down the aisle"

I think it's safe to say that Peter was CHEESIN!! As soon as he laid eyes on his bride, you could see every part of him was overflowing with happiness! What a reaction from a very laid back man!

What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? (groom's response) "It's a tie between our couple photos and photos of our guests having a good time."

I think it's safe to say that Ashley and Peter's crew knew how to have a good time...ESPECIALLY her parents!!LOL!!

How did you two meet? (Tell us all those little details!) "We met on Tinder! But quickly realized we were actually neighbors!! I guess you have to go on the internet to meet your neighbors these days HA!"

Tinder doing it again for us! Thank you for the technology we have today, because we are witnessing another beautiful success story from good ole tinder!! Who would've thought?!?

Tell us about THE dress! What made you fall in love? "She's a Greek goddess! Absolutely perfect for the beach and if course I had to add some bling."

Ashley was ALLLL about that bling, and we were ALLLLL about her and that dress!! The perfect dress to showcase who Ashley is to a tee!!

What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it? "Best Part by Daniel Caesar and H.E.R. we saw them perform it live at Coachella in 2018, during the most beautiful sunset. Instantly became our song."

Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day: "I was overwhelmed with emotions! She always looks fine but she was FINE fine that day. I couldn't stop smiling!"-Peter

Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day: "He looked incredible! So handsome and the only thing I could think was "YAS that's my man"-Ashley

YASSS Ashley that is your man!!! I don't think I've ever seen a groom go from full smiles to straight smolder so fast! Peter was honestly born for this whole modeling thing!

What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (bride's response) "First look with my Dad!"

UGH! Ashley's dad set the bar SO high for everyone in the future! Straight smiles, happiness, and whole bunch of tears! Her dad was very prepared, and brought a whole towel to this moment...forget a tissue!!

What was the most emotional part of the day for you? (groom's response) "Seeing Ashley walking down the aisle."

What is ONE moment of your day that you will always remember? "The moment right after the ceremony when we got to just take in the moment of finally being married!"

Favorite part of the Phocus Experience? "Everything!!! They were absolutely phenomenal to work with. I never had an empty glass and they even hid cheesecakes for us. Everyone should have a Sara (and Daniel and Harrison!!) with them on their wedding day!!!! Even our guests were talking about how great they all were!"

Overall, the May's wedding day was honestly just a huge celebration from start to finish! They knew just how special this day was, and went out with a bang! Not a soul was sitting down the entire night, every time you turned your head someone was laughing and having the best time of their lives! This is one wedding we will relive for many years to come! We can't wait to be apart of all the future accomplishments to come!

Here are some of our favorites from the day!
