Ashley and Sam

How We Met

Sam and I are college sweethearts! We met at a local dive bar that all of the college seniors hung out on Wednesday nights. We met through a mutual friend and had an instant connection. We’ve been together for over 7 years now and will be married on 12/12/20.

How They Asked

Sam and I took our dog for a walk at Presque Isle in Erie, PA along with my mom, younger sister, and my younger sister’s dog. It was a chilly day but taking the dogs to Presque Isle is pretty typical so I didn’t think anything of it. They suggested we walk along the beach for a bit and at one point I saw Sam fidgeting in his coat pocket. I looked at him and said “What are you doing?” with a smile on my face because at that point I knew. He got down on one knee and simply said “I love you” and asked him to marry me. Sam isn’t a man of many words so I wasn’t expecting him to say much but it was absolutely perfect and I felt so much love between us.
