She was a 14 year old girl and she was at the racetrack with her bff. Running around and doing what young teenage girls do, when Ashley laid eyes on Dale she knew right then and there that she had to talk to him. Upon finding out more information about him, she learned his name was Dale and he was a year younger – 13. When Ashley and her friend Allison got back home the first thing they did was add him on MSN instant messenger (how all kids in Jr High communicated online) and upon accepting the request the two talked for hours. They made plans to meet up again at the races, and from that moment on Ashley and Dale have been inseparable.
9 years later while hurriedly packing and getting ready to leave for a trip to Kansas City (in the middle of a snow storm), Ashley rushed about nervously packing her things. They were running behind and with the storm coming in she was in a bit of a panic. Realizing she’d forgotten a particular necklace, she asked Dale to grab it while she tended to a couple last minute things. She was distracted searching through her purse when he came in and asked “Is this the one you wanted?” and when she turned to look Dale was down on one knee with a gorgeous ring asking her to be his wife. Needless to say, she replied with a yes and they ended up being even more behind for their trip, but from that point on Ashley didn’t mind.
These two love birds will say “I do” next September in front of family and friends, and we cannot wait to be a part of it!! Enjoy a sneak peek at Ashley & Dale’s gorgeous engagement session!!
