Tell us your love story!
We met back in 2007 and we started off as friends. We were both dating other people at the time, but we would always laugh and have the best time whenever we were together. We spent the whole summer together and would be there for each other whenever our "exes" did something wrong. Connor would always tell Ashley that she deserved better and Ashley would always tell Connor the same.
One day, Connor happened to be on Twitter and noticed that Ashley was single and he took a chance on asking Ashley out. It had been about 4 years since they hung out but he missed their friendship and Ashley agreed and decided to go to dinner. They have been together ever since that day. Connor would call and make sure Ashley was ready to hang out as soon as she got off of work. We both realized that what we had been searching for, was right there the whole time.
What about the proposal?
I met Connor at a Sprint store in 2007. It was the first time I saw Connor and the first time I fell for him. Connor took me to a light show. It was so beautiful. We rode on a horse and carriage, had an amazing dinner & as the night was ending, I noticed that we were going to a familiar place. We pulled into the parking lot and we went into the Sprint store. I had no idea that Connor was taking me to the exact spot that we met to propose to me. It was so thoughtful and it gave me butterflies all over again. I'll always remember that day and that place & that specific spot.
When did you know that you were meant to be with each other?
We knew it was meant to be the day that Connor asked Ashley out to dinner. Our conversation was so meaningful and it was like we never stopped being friends. We had so much more in common and we knew that we didn't want to lose that connection again.
