Rustic Chic Summer Wedding at The Salt Creek Grille • Amanda Dolly Photography


I had a moment of self-doubt after the shootings in Vegas, wondering if it was still appropriate to continue with our editorial calendar in the wake of a national tragedy. And today, looking at this wedding, I know why it is: because we need to remember that there's still a lot of love in this world. And despite our sorrow and broken hearts, these posts help us remember that love, in all forms, deserves to be cherished and celebrated. Ashton + Jay's summer wedding was quintessentially both rustic and elegant, and the joy these two radiate on their wedding day is contagious. There to capture every last thoughtful detail and stolen kiss, Amanda Dolly's perspective on the day is just the breath of fresh air we need today.

From Amanda: Ashton & Jay had a gorgeous rustic chic summer wedding with lots of beautiful natural earthy tones in their florals and decor. They shared a lovely first look at Claypit Creek and were married right alongside of the Navesink River at an adorable little venue called the Salt Creek Grille.
