ASHLEE + CALEB

BARKERS ISLAND

SUPERIOR, WI

 

These two have an extra special place in our book. Caleb is one of my (Lyndsey’s) stepbrothers and I’ve gotten to watch him and his triplet brothers grow up from little boys jumping around on Pogo sticks to the amazing adults they are today. It has been fun to watch Ashlee bring out the best in Caleb and we all truly believe they are the perfect match.  They’ve grown up together from that very first awkward meeting at the baseball field when they were in high school all the way to their wedding day a few weeks ago.

.

Getting to be their photographers gave us the inside scoop on their day and seeing how much they love each other and what it means to have all your family gather around you for support was such a good reminder of why weddings are a HUGE CELEBRATION!  They are so loved!

Words from the bride, Ashlee:

“Caleb and I met through our mutual friend, Katelynn back in high school. I attended Northwood High School in Minong, WI and Caleb attended Solon Springs High school. She was pretty adamant on us meeting, and I did not feel same!! She eventually convinced me to go with her to see Caleb, and his brothers baseball game, and we’ve been inseparable ever since! Caleb asked me out about a month later through Facebook… We were very young at the time, so it didn’t matter to me. I do still like to bring it up to him every now and again to redden his cheeks”

Caleb took me to Wisconsin Point one evening in early August of 2013. We laid next to each other for a long time talking about about life and our future together. All of sudden Caleb presented me my grandmothers wedding ring, and asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him! Of course I said yes without hesitation. I did end up asking him to ask me again, but this time on one knee!! He did, and of course my answer was still a yes! We knew at that time we were young, neither of us were going anywhere. So, we decided to wait a little while before we picked a wedding date. Just having that ring on my finger, that my grandmother once wore, given to me by the man I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with, was satisfying enough for me!

We had set a wedding date a few times, but always ended up pushing it off. We ended up setting the date last spring for May 13th of this year. We of course did what people tell you not to do… and planned a lot of it just a few months before our big day! It actually ended up working best for us though. We didn’t have time to be indecisive about napkin colors, or if we were going to have only two different centerpieces opposed to three! You just had to make a decision, and stick with it! Which I often have a hard time doing, so this was perfect.

.
The best part of our wedding day (besides marrying my best friend) was hands down visiting with all of our guest! It’s great seeing people from all walks of life coming together to celebrate us. It’s the greatest feeling! Caleb and I truly are blessed with great friends, and family.
