When Ashley and Nick Met

Ashley and Nick had the classic boy meets girl Love Story. They met at a grocery store on a random weekday. They both reached on the same shelf and Nick couldn’t help but notice how beautiful she was. However, it wasn’t until they ended up at the same busy checkout line when they sparked up a conversation.

“Surprisingly, we ended up having a nice conversation and I couldn’t let her walk away without asking for her number.” They went on date two weeks later and they had a fun date with meaningful conversation.

If you let Nick tell it, from the moment he met Ashley he knew that she would be his wife. There was something unique about her and after their first date he quickly figured out what it was. Ashley was such a genuine and caring person. Everything just flowed so naturally and he loved the fact that he could be himself with her. After dating for two years, he decided about a month ago that he would propose to her before the year was over.


Nick contacted us a few weeks ago for our help in documenting his surprise proposal. He planned for the proposal to take place on Race Street Pier on December 4, 2020, at 3 pm. Nick had an ensemble of champagne set up at the end of the pier. His proposal plan went just as planned.

Our teams stayed out of sight the entire time per Nick’s wishes. We were still able to capture the visuals of the entire proposal. As Nick got down onto one knee, Ashley eagerly said yes before he could even finish his proposal. Once she said yes to his proposal the couple’s parents and closed loved ones made  their surprise appearance. Her parents happily embraced the newly engaged couple. It was truly a beautiful moment.

Wedding Vision

Although the company has yet started the wedding planning process they agreed that their ideal wedding would include their close friends and family. “We don’t want a big ceremony. Something intimate and well-designed is all we need,” Ashley remarked with a big smile on her face after the proposal. The couple does plan on tying the knot in the upcoming year.
