Ashley and Spencer

How We Met

Spencer and I met at the homecoming football game our freshman year of high school through a mutual friend and the rest is history. Spencer asked me to be his girlfriend on 11/5/08. I said yes, unable to imagine what would be in our future. The last NINE YEARS of dating, growing with, and loving each other have been a journey. We have made it through so many ups and downs of life and the years have been full of love.

Ashley's Proposal in Auburn Memorial Field

how they asked

On September 29th, 2017 Spencer took me out to dinner because he “had the night off”. Instead of going home after he took me back to the football field where we first met nine years ago. Shortly after we arrived the announcer called us down to the sidelines and out onto the track. He explained Spencer and I met there nine years ago and he wanted to ask me a question.

Spencer got down on one knee and asked me to marry him in front of everyone! I said YES!!! Our family and friends came down from the stands to congratulate us and a photographer was able to capture the moment. I was blown away by the effort he put into asking me (and I still am). I know we are soulmates. I am so thankful and feel so blessed, I can’t wait to be Mrs. Johnson!
