An Indiana Engagement Shoot
Tell us how you met and fell in love!
We met at our job in January of 2015. We started working at the same place within a week of each other. We went to the same high school but didn’t know each other then. We became friends after working together and would spend time outside of work hanging out. One of our mutual friends told me that Ashley had feelings for me. That Valentine’s Day we were invited to our friends house for Valentine’s dinner. After that night we started spending a lot more time together and officially started dating on April 21st of 2015.
Was there a proposal? Tell us about it!
Ashley proposed to me at our home on April 14th of 2017. I was totally surprised and so happy. We were just about to head out to meet our friends downtown for a birthday celebration. We are both pretty shy so a public proposal would have been hard for either of us to pull off.
Are you planning your wedding right away or giving yourself some time to just be engaged?
We are getting married on October 5th of this year at The Blanton House in Danville, IN. We are still finishing up the last of our wedding checklist and we are so excited for our day!
What’s the best thing you’ve learned from your spouse-to-be?
Ashley has taught me so much about what really loving someone means. I’m a very independent person and I have dealt with a lot of things in life on my own. Ashley is my biggest fan and my biggest supporter. She lets me know that it’s okay to ask for help when I really need it. She is the kindest, funniest person I have ever met and I love the world a lot more because she is in it.
Being with Sam has taught me so much about love. The amount of love she shows me is never-ending. She is the funniest person I know. I have never laughed so much in my life since being with her. Even when she is scaring me, (which is one of her favorite things to do, by the way) she always makes me laugh. Sam is the most kind, loving, empathetic person I have ever met. She is so full of love and always doing everything she can for everyone in her life. She definitely makes the world a better place and I couldn’t picture my life without her.
What’s your favorite part of your relationship?
We have a lot of fun together. We make each other laugh so much. We work together (still) and live together. Most people think they would go crazy if they were with their significant other so much, but Ashley really is my best friend and she makes everyday better.
