Hometown Elegance. Vintage charm. Ranch beauty. All of these were working titles I had all lined up for this blog about Ashlee and Jason’s wedding. Of course in the end I went ahead and used a sort of made up word (elegantly? is that really a word?) as is my typical stylishish.
As you check out the photos, you’ll instantly see why I had such a hard time nailing down the perfect title… there’s just so many ways to describe the crazy beauty that this wedding had!
(Jason, as he anxiously waits to see his bride for the first time that day during their reveal moment!)
For starters, Ashlee and Jason got married at Tubac Golf Resort and Spa. Unless you remember the last wedding we shot in Tubac, I’m betting you didn’t even know there was such a place as Tubac, AZ. I lived the first 28 years of my life in AZ and didn’t know that existed until a few years ago!
But now that we’ve found out what a great wedding location Tubac is, we’re never looking back. I mean, on what other golf course can you find cattle just roaming around? And where else can you get married in historical buildings (including an incredibly cool chapel) that are rumored to have ghosts in them!? Only in Tubac, AZ of course!
Ashlee and Jason went with the vintage theme… as well as completely contradicted it! Ashlee chose some of my all time favorite bridesmaid dresses for her girls to wear that were so creamy beautiful that they were quite risky considering the dirty, I mean “rustic” feel around them! Such a worthwhile risk though because just look at the contrast these dresses provide with the background around them! Gorgeous!

Of course Ashlee’s dress was incredible as well! I found out later that my favorite part of the dress (the brooch and ribbon) were additions that Ashlee and her mom made to the dress… good call I’d say! They just make the dress, don’t you think!?
As I mentioned in the final title, the feel of this wedding was elegant, elegant, elegant. But of course because the elegance was set up with the rustic background, it had the perfect level of elegance without being too stuffy. Classy and chill elegance is what it ended up being. Enough to be stunning yet fun, gorgeous yet personable.
And of course there was plenty of fun there!
The lantern send off that night was one of my favorite fun AND elegant moments!

If you can’t tell already…. I loved the overall feel that Ashlee and Jason were able to pull off by combining all that Tubac had to offer with their own personal style.
It was all such a perfect combination. Which reminds me a lot of 2 people I know…. hmmm…. who was that again?! Oh yes, Ashlee and Jason themselves!
Like their wedding, these 2 are the perfect complimenting team! We’re so happy you two found each other. We hope the rest of your marriage is as beautiful as your wedding was! Congratulations you two!!!
