It was seven years ago that Ashley and Andrew met at UBC, both studying to be teachers. Over the course of their time there, something sparked between them…so when Ashley moved away to find work once school was done, Andrew went after her. She lasted all of one month and Andrew won her over and back to Vancouver.
It was one year ago that Ashley and Andrew were at a Dave Matthews concert in Washington with friends. It was the first night of the weekend event, and Ashley’s favourite song was played, Crush. “Crazy how it feels tonight…crazy how you make it all alright…crush me with the things you do.” Andrew knew this was his cue, and he made his move. Suddenly he was before Ashley, confusing her…why are you blocking my view? But in the next moment, what unfolded before her removed her attention from the stage and everything else around them. On bended knee, Andrew proposed as Dave sang in the background…”Lovely lady, I will treat you sweet, adore you.”
Ashley and I have been emailing for a year now, so it was so wonderful to finally meet up…her personable, outgoing & warm self shines through in her emails almost as much as in person, so I already knew I liked her ;)
After wandering the UBC campus, we headed to a nearby beach to catch the sunset with their pup,
only blocks from their home in Kits…
Andrew and Ashley, thank you for a perfect evening. Just based on our time together last night,
I know wonderful things are in store for your wedding next summer! I can’t wait.
