Ashley & James // Fleischmann Wedding // University Club, Tuscaloosa AL

“Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze. ” -Elinor Glyn

We are thrilled to share James and Ashley’s big day on the blog today! This couple has an incredible love story that we are honored to tell. They met in Tuscaloosa, AL while they both attended Law School at UA. So it was only appropriate that they said “I Do” at the University Club on campus. We went to the rehearsal dinner the night before, where their friends and family said it was a union that was truly destined, because James almost did not choose the University of Alabama, since his whole family/family friends went to Universities in Tennessee (and let’s face it, UA and UT are somewhat rival schools). But after James’ older brother decided to go to law school in Alabama, James followed and never looked back after meeting his bride, Ashley.

They were in a study group together, and since James does not use social media, he gave his number to Ashley so he could be included whenever their friends met up to study. And I guess you would now say that the rest is history. He knew she was going to be his wife.

Ashley is in love with her two dachshund pups, and James, being the sweet man he is, decided to propose by buying her a gift with two dachshund puppies reading “Mr. and Mrs.”… and Ashley happily said YES!! Here is the story in her own words:

“It was a total surprise!! We were studying for our bar class when he asked to take me out to dinner. After 8 hours of studying, dinner was much needed. So I got dressed up and James came and picked me up. We were walking around the Governors Plaza in Tuscaloosa when I spotted James’ roommate sitting on a bench reading a newspaper. Now, if you knew Robby, you’d know that this is not as suspicious or abnormal as it may seem. I remember thinking to myself, “of course Robby is out reading a newspaper…” That’s when Robby stood up to say hello and said, “don’t you know James is about to propose?” And he proceeds to get out a little mr. & mrs. Towel and the ring box! The rest is kind of a blur because my emotions took over! Part of the surprise is that James called my parents & they drove up to be there! They were hiding in the bushes and jumped out after the proposal!! After, we went to my favorite restaurant for dinner!”

On their wedding day, James and Ashley were both so excited and anxious at the same time. More anxious just to see one another and finally walk down the aisle. And we imagine they were a little nervous too because they had their wedding on one of the busiest days on campus… spring A-Day (but this detail will come up again later)!

During their first look, James was completely taken back at Ashley’s beauty and could not stop smiling! During their portraits Ashley was glowing with joy.

Some of our favorite parts of the day happened during their ceremony. Ashley is so close with her mom and dad that she wanted both of them to walk her down the aisle to meet her groom. Next, after they exchanged their vows, and performed a “lock and key” ceremony, the lawyers wanted to sign the official marriage license!  All of their family and friends chuckled and smiled while they signed. And lastly, the A-Day crowd was circling around the busy sidewalks to witness their ceremony kiss and everyone on the street yelled out a loud “ROLL TIDE”!!

James and Ashley shared a small, intimate reception with lots of dancing and toasts to the bride and groom before making their grand exit!

Congratulations again Mrs. and Mrs. Fleischmann and we wish you the utmost happiness in your marriage friends!!
