Wedding Wednesday: The Gresko Wedding

The Gresko Wedding | July 30, 2016 | Photography by: Ashley Eiban Photography

Aynsley met David Gresko while working at Charlottesville High School; he, a band director, and she as an assistant teacher in special education. They shared hellos and waves for two years before finally connecting on a band field trip at Universal Studios in Orlando. Dave asked Aynsley if she'd join him for a rollercoaster ride, where they got to know each other well while waiting in lines at the park. Three years later, David proposed to her at their first vacation spot, Cape Hatteras, at the lighthouse.

Aynsley was so excited to walk down the aisle, remembering waiting in the wings and thinking about how ready she was to see David beneath the pergola. Her other favorite moment was the maid of honor and best man speech, where they reenacted David and Aynsley's relationship, with her twin sister putting on a blonde wing and Dave's brother even playing the saxophone. Aynsley says it was the most humorous, sweet, thought out toast they could have ever imagined! With a fairytale theme and colors of blush, petal pink, white and gold, the wedding took place at the Trivium and looked absolutely magical. Guests enjoyed polkas at the reception (due to the groom's Czechoslovakian heritage) and received personalized favors of donations in their name to the American Humane Society and Helping Hands Monkey Helpers (where she interned in college caring for capuchin monkeys) that came with homemade gold animal magnets. Aynsley says they had a blast matching everyone with their animals.
