Ashley and Andrew

How We Met

Andrew and I met in high school. I was a sophomore going to senior prom with a friend. We were taking photos when I noticed a *very* cute guy who I did not recognize. I did not even know if he went to our school (inside, I was totally hoping he did). I did some asking around and figured out that he did indeed go to our school and he was a senior. Fast forward to the end of the night at the post-prom party hosted by the high school. Myself, being very shy, somehow gained enough confidence to introduce myself to Andrew. The rest is history and we have been together for nine years!

How They Asked

Every summer, we take a vacation to a new destination. Aruba was somewhere we have been dying to go for so many years, so off we went! On the second night, we had late dinner reservations. Andrew suggested taking a walk on the beach to watch the sunset since we had enough time. We spotted another couple who needed help taking photos on the beach. Andrew told me to go help them out, so I did (in exchange for some photos, of course!) We smiled for the camera as the sun set behind us over the Caribbean sea.

All of a sudden, Andrew dropped to one knee with a gorgeous ring in his hand. “Will you be my forever?” he asked. The way he asked meant everything to me, as I’m not your everyday traditional girl. After saying “Are you serious?” WAY too many times, I finally said YES to being his forever!

Note: Shout out to the couple on the beach who were complete strangers to us. You captured amazing photos of our very special moment and I cannot thank you enough. If you’re out there somewhere, reach out to me!
