A Firehouse Engagement: Ashley & Taylor
Lots of you have been getting engaged over the festive period and with many more gorgeous couples set to get engaged over the the next month or so (can you believe Valentines day is just around the corner?) we are keeping the engagement shoots coming. Nothing has made us happier than listening to all your stories and we would love to hear more, so if you haven’t told us your engagement tale be sure to let us know all about it in the comments below.
For today I would like to share Ashley and Taylor’s engagement shoot with you! Photographer Sarah Tyler described them as a”truly amazing couple, so in love and really such best friends”.
I love the fact that they chose to hold the shoot at Taylors workplace, it obviously makes up a very large part of their lives and so why wouldn’t they want to include that in their day? What could be better than marrying the girl of your dreams and having the job of your dreams?
The couple are totally adorable and totally in love and huge bonus points to Ashley for the polka dot skirt – this girl has style!
How They Met. I met Taylor in 2007 after meeting at the pool at the apartment complex we both lived in. He was 20 and going to school to be a firefighter, I was 19 and also attending college. After spending some time together, the we quickly fell in love.
The Proposal. It was any old Monday and my best friend asked me to hang out that morning which I didn’t know was set up by my soon to be fiance so that he could prepare the house for the proposal. When I arrived home I found rose petals and candles leading up the stairs. I walked into our room and found candles and roses everywhere and then rose petals that spelled out “Will You…” with Taylor and our beloved pug Darla standing there. Taylor had dressed Darla up in a white flower girl dress and a pearl and diamond collar. Darla ran over to me and when I picked her up I found a gorgeous diamond ring hanging from her collar. Taylor dropped to his knee, like a true gentleman, and asked me to marry him.
I love the show “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” and have made Taylor watch it with my for the past 5 years so as an added touch to the proposal he pulled a single long stem rose from behind his back and said, “Ashley, will you except this rose?”
Doesn’t that just make you go ‘awwww’! How sweet are this couple! Wishing them all the love in the world and I cannot wait to see what they have planned for the wedding!
Much Bespoke Love
