Ashley and Chris
how they asked: We had gone to Chris’ hometown right outside of Memphis to visit his parents. My mom had came along because she had never been and I wanted her to see where Chris grew up.
It was the night before July 4th and Chris said he wanted us to go to a nice restaurant on the square for dinner. He also told me he wanted to invite his 86 year old grandmother to come with us. (I should have known something was up, right?)
So here we are, on our way to the restaurant when he says he wants to stop and take some pictures with all of his girls (me, his mother, my mother and his grandmother). So sweet.
We stop, and have taken a few group pictures when we decide to get one of just the two of us before we leave.
After we take the picture I start to walk off but turn around just in time to see him getting down on one knee….. I couldn’t believe it!
Honestly, I don’t even remember what I said or if I said anything at all, all I could do was cry and laugh at the same time. I was so excited!
It was a perfect night. I loved that my mother was there to see it happen and also his mother and grandmother. It was so special and I couldn’t have imagined a more special proposal. We spent the night laughing and drinking champagne and trying to take in all that had happened. I love the picture of his grandmother in the picture I included, it says it all! We were all so elated! I can’t wait to marry my best friend!
