Nearly Gave Up



Ashley and Peter

Location: Santa Clarita, California
Engaged: November 2nd, 2012

Just before Peter closed his account permanently, Ashley finally responded to the initial request and 'opened communication' with him. They zipped through the multitude of steps and had their first conversation over the phone on November 30, 2009. After talking everyday for hours on end, their very first date took place in Southern California on New Year's Eve. And, because we know you are curious, yes, their first kiss was at midnight! Peter and Ashley continued in a long-distance relationship for a year and a half before Peter moved down to Los Angeles in August of 2011. 

It was late in the evening on November 2nd, 2012 when Peter proposed to Ashley on a bluff overlooking the ocean in Pacific Palisades. It was a very romantic, sweet, and personal proposal...words that Ashley will always treasure. Of course it would not be true to Ashley and Peter's nature if there wasn't a little laughter involved. When Peter first opened the ring box, a bright LED light illuminated the ring which Ashley was not expecting. Because it was so dark where they were sitting, the suprising light blinded Ashley momentarily and she couldn't even see the ring! After accepting his proposal, Peter asked, "Do you like the ring?," to which Ashley responded, "I don't know! I can't even see it!" Ha!
