Coastal Bridal Session Honoring Family

One of the best things about bridal sessions is the way a bride can pull in tradition and wedding day aesthetic for a memorable moment during the wedding planning period. For Austin, she wanted to honor past loved ones through her session with Ashley Glasco Photography, so she donned her wedding attire at her grandparents' river house in Tappahannock where she frequently vacationed while growing up.

With a dropped waist, ruffled skirt, and a sweetheart neckline, Austin's classic gown complemented the coastal vibes of her location perfectly. To pull in the sentimental memories, Ashley made sure to capture Austin at the hammock one-seater swing where her late cousin used to love to enjoy summer days as well as the boat ramp where her beloved grandfather used to dock his boat with the channel marker in the background. It was a beautiful and emotional day for everyone, but to be able to pass down these gorgeous photos to future generations just made it all the more special.
