Ashley and Tramaine

How We Met

I could say Tramaine and I met by happenstance, but I don’t believe in coincidences! We met on April 16, 2011 in Fort Lauderdale, FL through mutual friends we didn’t know we had….. The rest is history. We talked that night for six hours outside and have been inseparable since. We’ve been through a lot together. From career advances, family gatherings and vacations to the loss of our infant son Jeremiah. But out of every tragedy is a triumph and I wouldn’t want to experience any of those things with anyone else but Tramaine.

How He Asked

While at our first Ugly Christmas Sweater party on December 17, 2016, I was attending to our guests when Tramaine said to me that he wanted to discuss something. I was a bit nervous and thought someone had broken something or was upset.

I immediately said, “Well, should we go upstairs to talk?” He said no then took my hand and played his new favorite song. He sang all the words to the song and in front of 35 of our family and friends, asked me to be his wife.

I was and still am overjoyed. He even had my mom and sister on Facetime in North Carolina so they could be a part of the proposal! He is amazing!
