Soliloquy Engagement Story – Ashley

Written by , Posted in General, Real Soliloquy Couples

Our brides have such interesting beginnings, and we thought it would be fun to start sharing how their love first began. First up is Soliloquy Bride Ashley who gets married in May 2015, and here is her story!

How They Met:
“I was living in Hawaii when Steven came to visit on vacation from Virginia in August of 2012. He was visiting his friend, who was a mutual friend of ours. We met the first night he arrived, and spent the rest of the week hiking, playing games on the beach and watching football. At the end of his vacation, we decided to keep in touch and planned to meet when I came home for Christmas. Two weeks later, my marketing firm disbanded and decided to move back to the East Coast, conveniently near Steven :)  And the rest is history!”


The Engagement Story:
“Steven proposed on June 14th, 2014 at National Harbor. We went there to celebrate my birthday, so we went out for a wonderful dinner and stayed at Gaylord National. When we got back to the room after dinner he told me to close my eyes. When I opened them I saw champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I said thank you, but I’m really tired and want to go to bed. He told me to close my eyes again, and the next thing I knew he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! After I said yes, we drank the champagne and enjoyed all of the chocolate covered strawberries while he told me the story of going to ask my parents for their permission to marry me :)  I was very surprised. He bought the ring in March, so I knew it was coming, but for some reason I didn’t expect it at all that weekend. It was simply perfect!”

We are so honored to be selected and featured! Take a look Below…

– “I Like Designers who are accessible.  I want to be able to pick up the phone and call them on behalf of my brides. I can talk to any one of them at any given time. And it’s not that they’re so small, it’s that they’re accessible people”

– The Excitement surrounding the “Return of the Ball Gown!”

– At 14:20 Miriam advises how many should be part of the wedding dress entourage and why.
