HOW WE MET
Our love story began unexpectedly back in 2014 at a bar in Downtown Tempe when we were introduced by a mutual friend (Thanks, Sharon) while enjoying a typical college night out. Ashton was finishing up her last semester at ASU with a job already lined up in Fort Worth, Texas, and Andy was running his business full-time while taking college classes online.
After some cheeky back and forth banter, numbers were exchanged and a first date took place the very next day over frozen yogurt and a romantic walk around Tempe Town Lake at sunset. Just a couple months later, Andy decided to pack his bags and move out to Fort Worth, Texas with Ashton, and the two moved into an apartment together, where their whirlwind romance began.
After about a year, we decided Texas wasn’t for us and moved back to Arizona. The next 5 years consisted of several moves, job changes, buying our first home together, the addition of two adorable pups (Myla & Maverick) and many adventures! After making Ashton wait long enough, Andy finally decided to pop the question!
HOW HE ASKED
After several weeks of planning, Andy tricked Ashton into believing that his work had given him a “last minute” weekend staycation at The Sanctuary Resort on Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale. Never one to pass up some relaxing pool time, Ashton totally bought in!
Continuing his weekend of trickery, Andy then told Ashton that he had made dinner reservations at a restaurant on the property that night. While walking across the resort to dinner, Andy and Ashton stopped to watch the sunset behind Camelback Mountain and Andy dropped to one knee and proposed! A hidden photographer that Andy set up captured every moment!
The tricks didn’t stop there though. Andy then took Ashton to El Chorro for dinner, where she was completely surprised yet again when she noticed a table with both of their families there to celebrate the special evening. The night ended by going back to the resort to a room filled with rose petals, candles, chocolate covered strawberries & champagne!
No wedding can be complete without an amazing team of vendors!!!
