Ashlee and Austin

How We Met

We met when I was a senior in high school. Over the next year we became best friends. In June of 2012 Austin asked me to be his girl friend and the rest was pretty much history. We are now 24/25 and are still the best of friends. We do everything together and wouldn’t have it any other way.

How He Asked

Six months ago my family booked a cruise with 40 of my extended family members and friends. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins etc. Little did I know Austin had something special planned for this trip. After 5 years and my fair share of trying to have the talk with him about “when it would be our turn” I casually joked to my brothers girlfriend the morning of that “they’d most likely be engaged before us”. It was formal night and we began getting ready. After eating our main course when they started bringing around dessert menus a waiter came up and said that they had a special desert for me. Under the plastic plate cover was the most beautiful two toned halo engagement ring I have ever seen and “Will you marry me” written in chocolate. The moment I had been waiting for had finally come and I’ve never been so happy.
