They’re engaged!!! When Austen came to Seth and I to discuss his proposal plans to Ashley a few weeks ago we were SO excited! Austen has been our best friend for almost 5 years now and we knew the day he introduced us to Ashley that she was special. These two are such good friends and are so good for each other. We were so happy to play a part in their engagement and I’m thrilled to share these photos!
Austen loves heights – mountains, towers, basically anything in the sky! And he asked Ashley to be his girlfriend on top of the Lake Walk tower by the Stella hotel in Bryan. So, he decided to propose to her in that very same spot! Austen was very set on this proposal being a surprise and went to great lengths to make Ashley think they were just going out on a nice date for Valentine’s day. Before he picked Ashley up, he set up a sweet spot for them at the top of the tower. He laid out a blanket that Ashley had bought for him while she was in North Africa and he pinned a hundred pictures of them to the tower railing. There were flowers and twinkling lights and everything looked stunning!
He brought her to the tower at sunset and proposed – and she said yes! It was such a sweet moment for the two of them and I’m so glad that they have these photos to look back on it. Everything is so exciting that it can be easy to forget exactly what happened in the moment! After the proposal they went out to dinner and we snuck over to Ashley’s house to set up a surprise party! So many of their friends came over to celebrate them and surprise Ashley and it was a blast. We are so excited for the two of them and can’t wait for them to celebrate forever together!!
