Neither of them had any expectations on that balmy night in July as they attended the 10th anniversary party for mutual friends of theirs. They met for the first time and, somehow, all either of them remember from that night was that there was something different about each other. Different enough that it was as though nobody else attended the party and that night was created just for the two of them. They connected so well at the party that they decided once the party was over to go get a couple drinks together. At the end of evening somewhere around 2:30AM, Chris asked for her number. They spent the next few weeks texting daily, while Ashley was in Ireland, and when she came back home he asked her out on a date. They quickly fell in love and became inseparable. Leading up to Chris’ birthday this year Ashley kept asking what he wanted (even though she already had an awesome gift picked out!) and his response was simply “you”. When his birthday arrived Ashley gave him her gift and then, much to her surprise, he responded by getting down on one knee and asking for her hand in marriage because, after all, all he wanted for his birthday was her.
Meet Ashley + Chris.
