Our story is one of sweetness, a little faith, and discovering what was and had been in front of us for a long time. With some trust and patience, committed friendship turned into a very deep love, and Ashley proposed in front of a very small circle of family members and friends on June 12, 2016. A late August wedding in 2017 is planned and will be set in Maine. In the meantime, Ashley will spend the next four months down at Ft. Lee in Virginia, completing her Quartermaster training for the army before being stationed at Ft. Lewis in Washington state next fall. Lauren heads out to Issaquah, WA this summer to be a live-in nanny and will be back teaching 1st grade in Maine next fall. Besides their love for children and the outdoors, their dreams are to have their own farm in their home state of Maine one day. They hope to have a simple, rustic, warm, and inviting wedding, an attribute to the surrounding Maine area they grew up in and very much love.
