Congrats to Ashley and Andrew!!

This past week came with a big announcement. On Wednesday night, Andrew proposed to Ashley! It was a well planned and executed chain of events.

Andrew was coming in town to see Ashley and celebrate their anniversary. To distract her from reasons as to why they were getting dressed up and going to City Park, we cooked up a scheme to “relive” their first date. On their first date, Andrew came to my parents house, I took fun pictures of them, they went to eat dinner and then came back to the house. So that was out plan, we were going to go take photos to remake some of their first date photos and then they would go out to eat.

Ashley was scheduled to meet us at City park at 6 pm, which gave us about an hour to take photos. I drove there with Andrew and we waited for her arrival.

He was so nervous…

Ha, just kidding. He was cool as a cucumber. DSC_0006

Once Ashley arrived, we headed to the bandstand where they reviewed the photos we would be “remaking”.

Here is an example of what we were remaking:DSC_0013

We took quite a bit of cute pictures!


So when it was time, Andrew said the code words, “Let’s take one back to back”. It was time.

Ashley got right into position.


Then it was time for me to deliver the ring (which was in my bag the whole time). I walked to Ashley and fixed her hair and told her to look forward. I went around to Andrew and told him to “fix his tie” and handed him the ring. Then we took this one..she had no idea what was about to happen!


Andrew placed the ring in his pocket, said some sweet words, and got down on one knee. As he was getting down on one knee and right before he pulled out the ring, I got this awesome shot:


Then he asked for her hand…


And she said YES!


And then she was shocked…for hours…

After Andrew proposed, they went to Commander’s Palace for dinner where they met up with Andrew’s parents, Mom and Dad and Doug and I. It was lovely!

Congrats to Ashley and Andrew! We are all so excited for you two!

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
