Q & A’s with bride to be Ashley
How did you two meet? We met in high school, we both had a similar group of friends (he was 16, I was 15) but we had always known who each other was (small town).
The proposal? He proposed the weekend of my 22nd birthday. I felt him wake up around 630 ish and was wondering why he was awake. Around 7/730ish he woke me up, kneeling on my side of the bed and after asking turned around and pulled out the ring from his dresser drawer. We have been together for 8 years now and after about 5 we knew we would get married after college.
The ring? A few months before he proposed he took me to a couple of jewelers and had me pick out a few styles I liked. I am kind of old fashioned so I didn’t want anything really big or flashy. I wanted simple but unique. I found the band I loved and I guess his mom had told him she had a diamond for it. So after he proposed with the ring I loved, he told me that the diamond was from his grandma’s wedding ring (which meant a lot to me).
Wedding plans? Our wedding is going to be at a home down in Fort Morgan, Alabama on the bay side. We are getting married out on the sand and having our reception at this big old house. It’s March 31st 2012 and it is very small. There are only 25 guests, which are immediate family and my three best friends from nursing school.
Favorite part of the engagement session? The last location, a cliff/hill at Brown County State Park. The sun was gorgeous and the field was awesome! It was exactly what I had imagined.
Why did you choose Stacy Able Photography? … because her pictures were gorgeous and unique. I could tell she liked natural lighting and simple but classic photos. At the same time her photos didn’t look like a million other photographers. I loved our session and had a blast! I can’t wait to hopefully one day book Stacy again for maternity and family photos! Thanks soo much! Great experience!!
