Casey and Ashley’s story has two different beginnings with how it started. Ashley says they met at a Brantley Gilbert concert in February 2017. A few months after the concert Ashley messaged Casey on his birthday. They decided to hang out and they have been together ever since! Casey says they met back in middle school on the beach with mutual friends. They may have different versions on how they met but all that really matters is that found each other!
After dating for a while Casey & Ashley knew they were made for each other. They talked about getting married one day and even looked at rings together! Casey wanted to keep the proposal between the two of them. He didn’t want to have anyone around or propose on a holiday. They went on a few trips together and Ashley thought it would happen on one of those. Nope! February 13th came, Ashley’s sister invited them on a trip to the mountains. It was going to be Ashley’s niece first mountain trip and she didn’t want to miss it. Their bags were packed and to the mountains they went. After they arrived and made trips to the grocery store, they ate dinner. Casey was super eager to go outside. They gathered on the back porch to fly the drone around and take in the mountain views. Ashley’s sister came out with her camera (Ashley thought nothing of it) to take some pictures of everyone. Casey started hugging her he expressed how much he loved her and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. He got down on one knee and popped the question! Ashley was completely speechless. She did not expect that since he told her he wanted it to be a private moment. She of course said yes! It was the most special weekend that she will never forget.
I had so much fun capturing their engagement photos at one of my favorite places! The Grove is a beautiful pecan grove in the Florence area. I cannot wait to see what moments I catch at their October wedding!
