Ashley and Clint

How We Met

Clint and I met when he was 15 and I was 17. We went to different schools but I had several friends from his school. Prom season was fast approaching and none of us had dates, so we agreed to take each other. I went to their prom on April 30th, 2011, where I met Clint and danced the night away. Little did I know, he would become the love of my life. We went on our first date the next week and it’s been on ever since!

Clint and I met in high school, and almost immediately I realized that he was the man I was going to marry. The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC has always been one of our favorite places to go and I’ve dreamed of getting married there since I was a little girl (although I realized it was far-fetched). So when my best friend told me she had two extra tickets and wanted us to go, I was obviously really excited and just figured it was a normal trip. When we arrived we walked up to this huge field overlooking the estate and the beautiful mountains. My friend asked us if we wanted a picture, and as we posed I could feel Clint’s heart beating out of his chest and he was shaking like crazy. He started telling me how much he loved me and I quickly realized what was happening. He got down on one knee and naturally I started crying like a baby, and nodded yes. Although we will never be able to get married there, the proposal was a dream come true, as is the man I get to spend forever with.
