Chris and Ashley Wed At Golden Gardens

Real love is like two strong trees standing side by side supporting and sheltering one another, with their branches and roots so entwined that, in the end, we find that they are one tree—not two—and it is inconceivable that they could ever part.

When you see Ashley and Chris together, it is inconceivable that they could ever part. They are a couple!

And where else would they wed than Golden Gardens: it was where they first met and where Chris proposed. The day was perfect. The site wonderfully prepared by Amy of Blue Ribbon Cooking School (where the reception took place).

Photos were taken before the ceremony at both the Ballard Locks and at the beach. Niki Desautels of NJD Photography made the most of the scenic nearby settings.

Ashley and Chris decided on very classic colors for their wedding. Nature contributed a blue sky, green grass and trees and sparkling water.

The wedding ceremony had a family feel. Ashley's brother, Jeff, walked her down the aisle.
Her grandfather, Tim, and Chris's parents, Frank and Kathy, each presented a heartfelt reading. Both sets of parents offered their blessings to the couple.

The vows touched everyone's heart and brought a tear to many an eye.
Mr. and Mrs. Marino set off in style!

Many happy sunrises and sunsets ... and many more happy moments at Golden Gardens.
