Ashley and Jared were meant for each other from the beginning. In fact, they even shared the same yearbook page in preschool. Growing up near each other, less than a few miles away, they were destined to be together.

The wind gusted through the palm trees and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky as Ashley and Jared’s wedding day began. Hosted at the plush La Quinta Resort, Ashley and her bridesmaids prepared for their day in a bright suite with a wall of panoramic doors that opened to a private villa pool; the perfect setting for the girls to just have fun. Meanwhile, at Casa de Trawick, the guys relaxed and enjoyed a casual game of pool with a football game on in the background.

The festivities began in full swing at the Empire Polo Club, specifically chosen by Ashley because she participated in horse shows there as a kid. The Polo field lawn was the perfect setting for a gorgeous ceremony, as Ashley and Jared’s family and friends witnessed their vows and that magical first kiss as husband and wife.

Everyone enjoyed dinner while listening to some amazing toast, including one from one groomsman who couldn’t be at the wedding in person, as he is a fighter pilot serving a tour overseas. Sending his speech to be read in his absence, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. Ashley, Jared and friends danced the night away under the starry night sky, accented by lanterns and market lights. It was a magical night, not soon to be forgotten.
