Ashley and Craig
How We Met
Craig and I met a few times at social events on Indiana University’s campus, however, it was not until a home town social event were we finally made a connection. It was 2010, we were both home from college and out with friends cheering on the Blackhawks to their first Stanley cup victory since 1992. As the buzzer went off we shared what was our first of many kisses. It was the best kiss I ever had and the rest is history! Almost 6 years later and I could not be more in love with Craig or thrilled to soon be walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams. Meeting at only 20 years of age, we have been through many life milestones together- 21st birthdays, finding ourselves, changing majors, changing jobs, several moves, quarter of century birthdays, long distance, and everything else in-between! Its been quite the journey and I am so excited to see where the rest of our lives together takes us!
How He Asked
On November 28th, I said YES to the love of my life! We were with his family at a local Christmas Tree Farm, searching for the perfect Christmas tree. His little brother asked for my opinion on a tree that was behind me. As I turned around, I was stunned to see my boyfriend for 6 years down on one knee asking me to be his forever! I thought I heard Santa’s sleigh bells, but it turns out it was wedding bells! We found the perfect tree, my boyfriend found the perfect ring, and I found the perfect man for me!
