Q&A with the bride: Ashley-Demetrio Engagement
Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
Demetrio and I first met online back when there was MySpace. We both had mutual friends who knew each other. He added me online and then we talked online for a few months. After a few months, we decided to go on a date and the rest was history! We have been dating since 2010.
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?
Demetrio and I have a unique relationship. We both had interest in different music artists and bands. Our first conversations revolves around this topic. We both consider ourself foodies! We love to try new restaurants on dates!
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 Demetrio was the one when we were on a date and he made me dinner. He cooked all of my favorite things! He was so sweet and sincere in that moment. I just remember thinking, I hope to one day marry this guy.
Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
Demetrio proposed to me on January 1, 2018. He was able to manage getting many of my familiar members together at my house that night. The proposal was a complete surprise! He told me we were going to the movies for a mini-date. We went to the movies and had a few drinks at the bar. After the movie, he said my parents had thrown together a small New Years party for my family. I thought nothing of it, because my family did these things quite often.
Once we arrived at the parents home, my younger sister told me to change into a dress. I still had no idea, because she said we were going to take a family photo which was also common in my family. I changed and as I walked out to the backyard, I heard the song called “Home” by Edward Sharpe. Demetrio and I called that song “our song” for many years. As I walked out, there was a path of rose petals lined with candles. My whole family was outside quietly waiting. I saw my “boyfriend” standing in a heart made out of red rose petals. He then got on his knee and asked me to marry him in front of our closest family and friends.
Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
We are having our wedding on December 14, 2018. We are excited to be able to share this big day with our closest family and friends. We are getting married in Oak Glen, California at Serendipity Garden Weddings. The wedding will be outdoors and rustic themed. The colors will be navy blue, burgundy, and gold. The planning is the best part of the entire thing. Demetrio has been extremely involved in decision-making! I cannot wait to share moments from the big day with everyone.
