A Stars Wedding at Wolftrap Farm | Ashley & Joseph

A May the 4th be with you Star Wars Wedding | Gordonsville Wedding Photographer

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Ashley & Joseph were attending their very first Katsucon with some mutual friends. Joseph saw Ashley, and just knew that he had to talk to her! He mustered up the courage to ask, “So, do you come here often?” After a fun day of getting to know each other, Joseph invited Ashley to an upcoming Jeff Dunham show in Richmond. They immediately bonded over their shared love for anime and Star Wars, and started dating!

On Dec. 8th , 2019, Ashley and Joseph were hanging out in front of a big Christmas tree in Stonefield’s shopping center in Charlottesville. Joseph told Ashley that he wanted a photo in front of the tree, and set up his camera to take a photo. Next thing Ashley knew, Joseph was down one knee holding a ring inside of a Pokeball. Ashey said, “Yes!” and they began the adventure of planning their wedding throughout Covid!

Finally, on May the 4th 2022, Joseph & Ashley were announced Mr. and Mrs. Holsapple in front of their family and friends at the beautiful Wolfetrap farm! They went all out for their, “May the 4th be with you,” themed wedding, and it was every superfan’s dream! From all of the intricate handmade signage, to their reception lightsaber demonstration & exit, every piece of their day was personalized to show their shared love of an amazing fandom spanning decades. Their officiant (and family friend!) donned his Obi-Wan Kenobi cosplay for their ceremony, and guests enjoyed signature cocktails from the dark side of the bar.

Their reception was an absolute blast, with friends and family getting to celebrate the day with music and laughter! After cutting their stunning cake, Ashley and Joseph shared a final dance. They left their reception with an epic Lightsaber and bubbles exit, with all of their friends and family cheering them on to their new journey together as husband and wife. Congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Holsapple, and may the force be with you!
