Rek and Ashley (Lux) Mohr
Prior to the morning of their wedding, I had only met Ashley once -- a quick introduction in the lobby of Suite 100 during a concert at The Pageant. Tell, on the other hand, had previously worked with both Ashely and Rek on a few different occasions, mainly involving music and video work. Despite not being able to have face-to-face meetings leading up to their big day, knowing music was at the heart of this couple's relationship, I had no doubt that I'd enjoy spending the day following them around with a camera.
As it turned out, it wasn't just our common love of music and art that made this wedding special for Created Space Studios. It was the sincere hearts of the people we were surrounded by that made Rek and Ashley's wedding most enjoyable.
Spend just five minutes with this bride and groom and you'll immediately understand what I mean when I say that they love like not many others. Their love is a combination of friendship, constant support, patience and feelings so intertwined that their foundation has taken root -- a common theme to their wedding from the "tree" cake to the references in speeches. They love those closest to them deeply, too. They truly choose to live and love fearlessly.
And now when I think of Rek and Ashley, I will think of how Ashley casually shrugged off getting a stain on her wedding dress because, as she put it, " Who cares?! I still get to marry Rek!" I will think of some of the most eloquently worded speeches shared during their ceremony and reception. And I will also think of how even in a room filled with people, they could look at each other as if they were the only ones in the room. (Oh, and I'll also think of how their first dance was to a Radiohead song... and that is just awesome.)
Thank you for letting us be part of your once-in-a-lifetime day, Mr. and Mrs. Mohr!
