How they met ~
Kirk and Ashley met on a dating app back in May of 2013. They talked for just a day or two before Ashley suggested to grab drinks on a Friday night after work. Kirk was living in Garland, and Ashley in Denton, so the couple met halfway at BJ’s Brewhouse in Lewisville, Texas. At the time, Kirk was working out constantly and was ready for his third dinner at 10pm, while Ashley was not really hungry. Kirk suggested an appetizer so Ashley picked spinach and artichoke dip which was her favorite. Kirk on the other hand was not a fan of the dip, but ended up eating the whole thing when Ashley had just one bite. Both were nervous, but talked until they were kicked out of the restaurant at closing. The couple then sat on the curb outside the restaurant talking for hours until the sun started to rise. The rest is history…
The proposal ~
It was December 16, 2016. Kirk took Ashley to Urban Crust, one of the first places they went to after moving to Plano. The couple got their favorite meals, along with a nice bottle of wine. After dinner the couple headed to the jeep. Kirk planned to just put the food in the jeep to then propose by the downtown Plano Christmas tree. This was not expressed to Ashley, so of course she just hopped in the jeep. Frustrated, Kirk abruptly said, “get out.” Ashley was very confused and asked why. Kirk said since we took a picture our first year here, with the tree, we needed to this year. Ashley agreed, so the couple headed to the large Christmas tree. Once they got to the tree, Kirk got down on one knee, having Ashley surprised he knelt down on the wet concrete. Using her full name, Kirk asked Ashley to marry him. Ashley immediately said yes.
Breathtaking wedding, it was simply beautiful from start to finish!
