Ashley and William
How He Asked: We had been dating for four years and I spent the last two months in Charleston, SC for work and on the day I returned we had plans to meet a few friends for drinks in Fells Point in Baltimore. Will had made a nail appointment for me that morning, but I didn’t think anything of it since he’s done that before and he knew I had missed my nail tech while down in Charleston. In the afternoon we walked down to the restaurant we had planned to meet friends at and as we were walking by the water he stopped and told me there were a few more friends inside than originally planned and of course I needed to know every detail immediately. He started telling me how much he missed me over the last couple months and he never wants to be apart like that again, and then he got down on one knee and I became a puddle.
He pointed out that he had hired a photographer to capture the moment who then took a few more photos of us before we went inside the restaurant, where to my surprise were 30 of our closest family and friends!
However, the engagement was a huge surprise to all of them because Will had told them they were all here for a Welcome Home Surprise party for me. He coordinated the most magical proposal and I couldn’t imagine it any other way!
