When I met Ashley a few years ago, we became fast friends. She is inspirational, determined and embodies true “girl power.” Our short conversations always transformed into lengthy discussions about our goals and our experiences. She would tell me about her boyfriend, Tyler, and how they had dated and rode the school bus together in high school and reconnected in college.
Although he hadn’t popped the question yet, Ashley knew she wanted their engagement photos in the sweetest little alley located in downtown Howell. Tyler had clearly listened and started 2015 perfectly. On the way to breakfast on New Years Day, he dropped to one knee at “her spot” and asked her to be his wife. The rest is history. I will never forget opening her text message with the news… I must have responded with a million exclamation points on the end of each sentence!
Of course, we returned to the alley for their downtown Howell, Michigan engagement. The morning was full of smiles and laughter. We loved watching their dynamic and loving relationship. We swear, they could just glance at each other and immediately light up.
They were married a few months ago in Ashley’s family home. We can’t wait to share their big day, but for now, we’re toasting to our two friends and their beautiful partnership!
