Ashley & Jordann
How did you two meet?
Jordann and I met in elementary school in second grade after my family moved to the school district actually. I remember the first time I saw him outside of school; Jordann and his dad came to our house to have their boat worked on. I remember standing in the kitchen with my mom and my mom saying, “Ashley come look at this cute boy!” My mom recalls this day and laughs about it often as we were two awkward little kids flirting that day. She always wishes she knew what our futures held because she would have loved to capture that day.
We went to Northview Elementary school and back in the day, once a year the entire school would gather in the gym and watch a movie together. When we were in second grade we watched Monsters Inc. Jordann and I held hands through the entire movie and afterwards I vividly remember Jordann saying, “Oh man, my hands were so sweaty.”
What was your first impression of each other?
Jordann and I were actually really good friends well before we started officially dating! I always thought of him as my best friend. It’s so hard to think of my “first impression” of Jordann as we have known/met each other over 14 years ago!
Tell us all about the proposal!!
Jordann and I were on our way to Manhattan to grab a couple things before we headed up to his family cabin to do some work up there. Needless to say I hadn’t gotten ready what’s so ever! He told me we needed to go to the state park office for some reason and so we took a detour. He ended up passing the office and we drove around the park grounds. I was really confused what we were doing. We walked down on the docks and he got down on one knee. I was so shocked I was laughing, crying, and shaking all at the same time. He actually didn’t give me the ring on the dock because he was so worried I’d drop it in the lake!
So turns out while we were driving around he was trying to find the original dock where we had our first kiss! The dock has since been taken out so he had to change his plans last minute!
How would you describe your wedding style/decor? Classic/rustic.
What are you looking forward to most in your first year of marriage?
We have essentially grown up together and now we can’t wait to grow old together and conquer life’s trials and tribulations as a team. We are very excited for what our future holds.
Best thing about your wedding day?
The best thing about our wedding day was having all of our closest friends and family together to celebrate with us. We had several friends/family that traveled from out of state to spend the day with us. It truly meant the world to us!
