Fun Summer Wedding

Fun Summer Wedding

Ashley St. Clair & Joseph Rectanus: June 20th, 2015

Fun summer blue and grey wedding with umbrellas photographed by Appleby Photography.

Ashley’s sister introduced her to Joe while attending Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas, thus starting their friendship. Later, while living in different states, they met up again. This time, as soon as Ashley and Joe saw each other, they both knew they were meant to be together and have been ever since. The wedding proposal came on a snowy Valentine’s Day in a cozy little log cabin where they spent the weekend warm by the fire. Ashley and Joe’s most memorable moments of their wedding day were their “first look” and when they walked into their reception, among their family and friends, as husband and wife.

About Nicky Wilkinson

I’m proud to say I’m an Iowa farm girl from Swisher. I married my college sweetheart, Dale Wilkinson, and we have five girls. We live in the country with our cats and dog. Camping, canoeing, horseback riding and biking are some of our favorite activities. Our girls keep us busy with plenty of school activities and hobbies. I took over The Wedding Guide in August of 2014. I am inspired everyday by our local venues and dedicated wedding professionals. They are hard working and very talented. I get the opportunity to share that inspiration with couples to help them plan for their best day ever.
