In honor of #throwbackthursday we’re bringing you the proposal story of Ashley and Alex from November 2012.
Alex popped the question on his birthday (November 29) in 2012. Both he and Ashley were in the middle of exams and even though they were both super busy, Alex was adamant with Ashley that they needed to take the dog to Wyman Park Dell. It was a beautiful morning out and Ashley was feeling cabin-fever-ish anyway, plus Alex never outright asks for anything, so she was more than willing to accompanying him on the walk.
When they got there they started playing fetch with their dog, Besa, when Ashley noticed there was a woman taking photos across the park. Ashley didn’t really think anything of it, she just thought the lady was taking photos of a pretty dog in a pretty park on a pretty day. The couple was meandering around the park when Alex remembered that he had Besa’s dog tags, which had fallen off. He asked if Ashley would help him put the tags back on and offered to hold her. He kneeled down to hold Besa and held out her tags in his hand. At the bottom of the tags was the most perfect ring. Ashley started crying, she’d never been so surprised in her life. Through Ashley’s tears Alex asked, “Will you give me the only birthday present I’ll ever want for the rest of my life?”
Turns out Alex hired the woman with the camera to capture the whole event on film. She was supposed to disappear if Ashley said no, but of course Ashley answered with a resounding “yes!”.
Ashley and Alex got married a few weeks ago, on February 3, 2014 in Playa Potrero, a small beach town in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica. The wedding was absolutely perfect and we can’t get enough of the beautiful wedding rings they choose with the help of our sales rep, Cara.
Congrats Ashley and Alex. Your friends at Samuelson’s wish you a lifetime of happiness:)
