Married on November 1, 2014 at the Aldredge House in Dallas, Ashley and Ryan have become more than just clients – they’ve become friends. The couple was referred to me by Kelly Hooper (an award-winning wedding DJ and dear friend), and from the moment we met I could tell our relationship would be about more than just business.
As Ash told me the details about her swanky wedding, we came to find out that her maid of honor, Jacque K., was the same Jacque K. I grew up with in the Chicago area! I hadn’t seen Jacque (or “Reddy” as her softball nickname used to be) in years, and couldn’t believe the coincidence. Jacque and Ashley met at the University of Illinois (my dad’s alma mater) and became best friends.
Over the course of the year, an engagement session quickly led to running outings, happy hours in Deep Ellum and dinner dates with Kelly at Urban Rio (try the stuffed avocados!). Ashley is the most down-to-earth, gorgeous woman with a true heart of gold. And she met her perfect match in Ryan, whose easygoing demeanor compliments his bride perfectly. I can’t imagine a more genuine, caring couple than the Schumachers. Congrats, lovebirds!
