Ashley & Steve Labarre

If there’s one way to test the mental fortitude of a new lover, it’s plummeting to the Earth from 14,000 feet up — but Ashley’s work commitments forced this adventurous Army couple to settle on a first date option that was a little more grounded. Three years later, Steve revisited the idea of a skydiving date by planning to propose right after parachutes returned them to terra firma — but Ashley found the ring. So while the couple have yet to jump from a perfectly good airplane, they took the plunge in a summer wedding at the Fair Barn. A fun, casual ceremony that incorporated their own children (Kyla, 9, Lucan, 8, and Addyson, 7) was high on their wish list; and a taco dinner, photo booth, bubbles, and a toast of sparkling grape made it memorable for the more than 40 kids in attendance.
