Ashley and Greg

How We Met

Greg and I have known each other since our kindergarten days. We grew up in the same town and have known each other almost our whole lives. In high school, we had the same group of friends but had never dated. It wasn’t until sophomore year of college when we were a 3-hour drive apart, we started officially dating. Now here we are 6 years later!

How They Asked

During the summer on weekends, Greg and I go up to my parents’ house on Cape Cod. For the past couple of years, we have been going to the beach here and there to watch the sunrise in the morning. Greg had told me we were going to go watch the sunrise at the beach and then get breakfast at my favorite place, the Chatham Bars Inn. I knew if we were going there I had to get dressed up. I woke up at 4 am to do my hair, makeup and pick out an outfit. I thought nothing of it because we frequently do this, however, I usually roll right out of bed and go. We get to the beach and start walking right along the water. Next minute Greg is on one knee asking me to marry him.

He had hired a photographer to catch the moment and had my sister hiding in the seagrass to get a video of it all. We then went back to the house and to my surprise, both of our families were there awaiting our arrival and I was shocked! Greg had also invited our friends to celebrate and they all came to the Cape to for our special day.

He also arranged with my co-workers to have my day off for the week be on Monday so he could take me to Chatham Bars Inn to stay for the night! The whole weekend was perfectly planned and I couldn’t have been happier! So many surprises and such a memorable engagement weekend that I will never ever forget!
