Ashley & Garrett
How did you meet?
We actually met in high school! We had a lot of mutual friends but we didn’t start dating until my second year of dental school. I truly went out to the bars with my best friend in hopes we would run into him, and we did, and we would spend the whole night talking! I had my dog, Atticus and he had his dog Grady, and he definitely used that to ask me out on our first date!
When did you know they were the one?
I was home on fall break and we decided to head up to his family’s cabin on Casper Mountain. We were cooking ribs and having wine out on the patio. I remember being a little nervous to let it slip that I loved him, as we hadn’t said it yet. But as I was sitting out there on the patio, in the mountains with the man I love, I knew that this was all I’ve ever wanted and this where I was supposed to be. I was just so happy in that moment.
What’s your three favorite attributes of your partner?
One of the many things I love about Garrett is his love for his family. He comes from a blended family and his step dad is not that, he is his dad. Same goes for his step-mom, she’s mom. And all of his step siblings are his brothers and sisters. Nothing step about it!
His love for dogs! We both had a dog when we started dating and we became our own little family of four. Last year we got a puppy together, Sawyer, and now we are the crazy couple with three dogs. We are totally on the same page. We take our dogs everywhere we go and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
He’s my best friend. He is truly my other half and sometimes I think he knows me better than I do! We love to just stay at home, probably watching game of thrones, hanging with our dogs and eating Chinese food, and that’s our happy place!
Who proposed and how?
He proposed at the end of our long hike with one of my best friends on Table Mountain in the Tetons in Wyoming! I definitely did not see it coming, it was around a 10 mile hike and we ended up at 11,000 feet. It was such a dream with the most incredible view of the Tetons. It was a day I will never forget.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I honestly fell in love the moment I saw the dress on Pinterest. I saw a lot of dresses online before I went dress shopping but I just could not get Danni out of my head and I knew I had to try her on! It was the same thing dress shopping, I knew I would never be able to make a decision until I tried on Danni! And I knew I she was the one!
Where did you go to Honeymoon?
We went to Banff, Canada! It was the best time with the biggest, most beautiful mountains. We didn’t have an agenda while we were there. We hiked, saw some sights, but also stayed in on the snowy days at watched Outlander on Netflix and went out to eat at some amazing restaurants!
