How We Met
We met 7 years ago in Santa Barbara, Ca. It was my first day of the sophomore year and he was a transfer student coming from Marin. He was my best friends college Craig’s list roommate and I was coming with my friend to meet him for the first time because he was nervous. I walked into his room and said “ Hi I am Ashley – we are going to be best friends” and then after 6 months of being “friends”, we slowly fell in love and have been together ever since.
How They Asked
We had planned a trip to Bali with all of our closest friends from college as a reunion. Imagine my 4 sorority sisters and his college roommates and little brothers all meeting up for a two-week vacation at the most magical villa I have ever seen. Wednesday night he had planned a “dinner” for just the two of us away from the group. We got all dressed up and when I arrived there were candles and flowers all over the lawn leading to a table in the middle of a moat.
From there we walked along the beach in front of our table and as he was shaking he got down on one knee followed by a little speech and lots of tears. After I said yes, I saw all my friends hiding in the bushes with cameras and when we arrived back to our villa they had set up a mini engagement party. Couldn’t have asked for a better moment and after 7 years we are finally making our love official!!
