Q&A with the bride: Ashley-Chris Engagement
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
We met at Red Robin… yummm! I was a host and he worked in the kitchen. Chris tried so hard to get my attention but I was so focused on my job that I never realized he was there, until one day when a coworker decided to set us up. Chris finally got the courage to speak to me and eventually we went on our first date. We’ve been inseparable ever since.
What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
When Chris and I finally get the time to ourselves we truly enjoy cooking and eating. I do not know how to cook but Chris does so it’s always an interesting time in the kitchen. Another thing that we love to do is find popular dessert places on Instagram and travel to them. We will travel for good food and desserts!
How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
I knew Chris was the one when he bought me a plane ticket to meet his family up in Northern California. In the beginning of our relationship he took a trip out there and he promised me he would fly me up there with him the next time he visited his family. I really did not believe him but to my surprise he actually bought me a ticket and we spent time with his family. It was my first time flying on an airplane and he was just so sweet holding my hand and making sure I was ok. We had such a great trip and I knew during that time that he was the man who I was going to marry.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
I had a feeling that Chris was going to propose to me when we were in Vegas for our company’s annual convention. He was texting my mom back and forth and people from our office were very giddy around me a few weeks before our trip. I was surprised however that he didn’t propose to me on my actual birthday.
Chris proposed August 15 in front of 30,000 people in our company. We were dressed up nicely for a Gala Night and we were waiting to see The Blue Man Group perform. Our CEO had got our Team together and wanted to make a “special announcement”. He called upon Chris and I and said that Chris had his own special announcement to make and all of a sudden Chris got down on one knee and proposed to me. Everyone was in on it and I was so shocked, I kept asking Chris “Really, is this for real, are you sure?”
Chris knew that I love rose gold so much that he got me a rose gold 14k wedding band with diamonds all around. Since we spend majority of our time together he had to find an excuse to get away from me to go buy the ring. He told me he was meeting up with a friend to go play basketball at the gym but in reality he went to the jewelry store to pick out a ring for me. It still blows my mind that Chris was able to hide the ring from me because he gets very excited and can’t keep a secret.
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
We are both excited to start planning our wedding day!!So far we don’t have any ideas in mind yet, our ideas change often. The only thing we know we’d like is to have our wedding in October of 2019.
