Ashley and Cory

How We Met: I met Cory 5 years ago back when we were still in high school. For our first date, Cory took me out to dinner and than we walked on the beach and sat under the stars and talked for hours. It was love at first sight for me! We never really dated because high school was ending and we were going in different directions but we always stayed friends. Two years later I had a huge st. Patrick’s day party at my house. I invited him over and shamefully I was so drunk!

He wound up crashing at my house because he wasn’t safe to drive home and that’s when the worst had happened. Throughout the night I peed on Cory’s shoes !!!!! I was so embarrassed because I had no idea until the next day when he told me when he was leaving that his shoes were in a puddle. I thought for sure that was the end.. But I was wrong. He came back the next day! And he hasn’t left since that day. It’s been an amazing 3 years of dating! and we always knew that marriage was going to come next, but little did I know how soon it was coming!

how they asked: It it was a chilly August night and we were hanging out with a bunch of friends when Cory said he wasn’t feeling well and wanted to leave. As we were driving home I seen he made a wrong turn and was heading towards the beach. I still didn’t think anything of it because we always walk the beach at night. As we were walking along the beach it was getting darker and we were just talking about how we had our first date here and that’s when Cory grabbed me in close and started talking about everything and how it’s time.

At first I didn’t realize what was happening until I seen him pull out this little treasure chest. I was shocked! I couldn’t believe it was truly happening, and when he finally opened the little treasure chest and the moon light hit the ring and it sparkled tears rolled down my eyes.

To be honest I don’t remember every word he said to me in that moment but when he finally got down on one knee, I gave out the most ugliest cry I could ever do! It was truly the happiest moment in my entire life. We have one more year left to go until we get married and we are so excited !
