Ashley and Brandon

How We Met

Brandon and I met in class my second to last quarter at UC Davis.  We were study buddies for our class, but nothing more at the time.  A little over a year later, we rekindled our friendship which turned into something more…and our first date was in San Francisco too!

how they asked

He planned out everything…he even made a timeline! He was so proud.  As a planner myself, he definitely appreciates my skills now!  He fibbed and told me we were going out on a date night…a museum show and a dinner, as a belated birthday present for himself.  Little did I know, the night was about to be about me instead!  He stopped in front of the gate at Shakespeare Garden, telling me that there was going to be a sculpture inside.  As I looked, he got down on one knee!


I couldn’t stop my nervous, giddy, excited laughter, but finally, I managed to say “yes!” We then sat together at a picnic dinner with flowers, champagne and candles, as he recounted everything he did to make my perfect proposal possible! #toasttothetuckers is our hashtag on Instagram.
