Ashley Layne Weston and Michael Ryan Pugh were joined in marriage on April 1, 2017 at Troy United Methodist Church, with Rev. Dean Johnson officiating the ceremony.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. William Keith Weston and the late Sheila Macon Graham, and the groom is the son of Mr. Mike and Fran Pugh . The bride was given in marriage by her father.
The bride’s maid of honor was her best friend, Brittany Mills. Bridesmaids included Shelby Pope, Kayla Rials , Taylor Mills, Whitney Moore, Casey Bailey, Jana Stinson, Jasmine Deese and Kahren Pugh.
The groom’s father, Mike served as the best man. The groomsmen included Heath Pugh, Jordan Kendrick, Cole Dunlap, Steven Reep, John Honeycutt, Chad Boyd, Shane Hudson and Dusty Reeves.
The bride and groom met through mutual friends while attending college in 2015. The bride’s favorite part of the ceremony was seeing Ryan at the end of the aisle and walking towards him – feeling comfort and joy at knowing they were about to spend eternity together.
The couple and their guests enjoyed the reception held at The Emporium in Troy. They danced to the sounds of Lisa & the E-Lusion Band. The night was coordinated by Samantha Casey of Hope Hull and the delightful cuisine provided by Elaine Parker of Pine Level catered the lovely affair. Liger’s bakery created the delicious wedding cakes and the magical event was captured by DiAnna Paulk Photography in Montgomery.
The newlyweds left their reception in a vintage car that was owned by a family friend. Their love of … all things vintage…. fit their “old souls” perfectly.
After a honeymoon trip to Punta Cana, the couple now lives in Hope Hull.
