Four months ago today, October 28th, 2011, these two love birds met for the very first time. On Friday, February 10th, 2012 Brad surprised Ashley with the question she’s been waiting on since she met him, and some added bling to her her left ring finger. Two days ago, Sunday, February 26th, Ashley and Brad were united in marriage at the sweetest, most perfect ceremony at Christopher’s World Grille. When you know, you know, and these two never doubted.
When I told Ashley back in October that we had a friend coming into town that I thought she should meet, she was secretly a little leery. Of course she was outwardly willing, all the while thinking she was tired of her friends doing this! Brad, on the other hand, was all about it and never thought twice. Knowing basically nothing about each other, they were introduced that Friday October night and after spending three days together, and with the rest of us, the chemistry was undeniable! That weekend was jam-packed with watching the Rangers game, tailgating and attending Aggie football, and tons of social time with great friends and family… even surrounded by so many, the two of them never took their eyes off each other.
After that weekend there were nightly phone conversations that lasted hours, trips to Midland for Ash, BCS for Brad and Sonora for both, and future plans being made. I have never seen these two happier and could not be more thrilled for them to be starting their life together! Sunday they were married, Monday they loaded Ashley’s boxes in the car and left for Midland. Brad and Dawson took Ashley those six hours to “bring her home” and make their house complete.
I, along with so many others, am sad to see Ash go, but thrilled to know what’s up ahead for her. It warms my heart to see the smiles reinstated on both of their faces. I can’t wait to see you both again, share laughs and make memories. You are so blessed with all you have and all that the future holds. Thank you for letting us share in your special day. We love you!
