It’s Magazine Monday! And we couldn’t be more giddy to share a closer look at Audrey and Daniel’s delectable day from our glossy pages. Read their love story below and then scroll through the incredible images above.
September 17, 2016 // Audrey + Daniel
Daniel Bussio was Audrey Powelson’s first kiss and her only kiss — and she wouldn’t have it any other way. The two lovebirds met in high school five years ago, and they’ve been steady and smitten ever since. Their picture-perfect courtship led to a (literally) picture-perfect proposal.
“On March 17, we rented out a studio to photograph some art pieces I’d been working on,” she says. “After we were done, he suggested we take a few photos of us. I agreed without hesitation because I love photos of us! He set up the tripod and self-timer. Before he clicked the camera button, he kept asking, ‘Are you ready?’ And I kept repeating, ‘Yes?’ He finally clicked the button and came over. I was smiling at the camera and felt him pull on my hand. I looked over and he was kneeling down on one knee. I was shocked! It was the sweetest moment, just the two of us.”
Exactly six months later on Sept. 17, Ashley and Daniel were wed by his grandfather in the sweetest ceremony. Ashley’s best friends and bridesmaids sang and strummed “Make You Feel My Love.” And they danced the night away under twinkle lights.
“It was so fun to let loose after the most loving, busy, amazing day,” Ashley says. “Everything was magical.”
GET THE PICTURE In planning her wedding, Audrey had a vivid vision of simple glamour. And from her draped chiffon Leanne Marshall gown to the mauve roses to the eucalyptus-lined chairs, less was gorgeously more. “I am so blessed to have worked with such fantastic people,” Audrey says. “Everyone put in so much effort, and their talent amazes me.” Another delicious sight? That pink (!!!) food truck that served guests ice cream sandwiches. Who said glamour can’t be fun?
