Sometimes it feels like you can sum up a wedding with a single element - a vintage hairband, an elegant arrangement or, in Ashley and Eddie's case, really cool shoes. Between Eddie's Vans, the bridesmaids' Toms and Ashley's hot pink flats, you get the sense this is a couple who is ready to enjoy their wedding day and life together.

And their photos by Acres of Hope Photography capture that sense of closeness and fun - their first look series is absolutely priceless and you can't fake the laughter and smiles that pepper their shots with their friends, their vows and during their first dance. I've gotta say, they kinda sparkle, don't they?
