Ashley and Adam’s Engagement Session in Youngstown, Ohio

Ashley & Adam first met at her cousin’s daughter’s 4th birthday party.
They both asked her cousin to introduce them to each other. It took 3 months for them to meet after that. They met at a bar in Kent, OH and then they went on one date. They have been together ever since.

They went to Olive Garden for their first date. After the date, Ashley talked him into going camping in the middle of nowhere with her friends. She found out later he was out of his comfort zone but he did it for her.

So how did he propose?

Right after their family christmas dinner, Adam asked her to marry him at her grandparents house. Both of their families were there to celebrate with them!

I always ask my couples what they love about each other.
Here is Adam’s response:

I love her smile and her beauty. How she is always wanting to help someone out with their problem no matter what it is. She is always there for me whether it is good or bad. I love how dedicated she is to her job and the children that she meets with. She is my rock, on days when I feel like giving up I think of her and she keeps me going. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her. I love how she is my best friend.


What does Ashley love about Adam?

I love how selfless he is. He would drop everything to do anything for me. He is the most loyal amazing person I could ever meet. He is opposite of me but he calms me down and he helps me with staying sane and organized. If it wasn’t for him I would not be where I am today. He is my biggest supporter and he always believes in me. He is not just an hardworking old school gentleman but he is the light to my darkest days, he is my home, and I will always feel safe with him by my side. He is my best friend.

Ashley & Adam are getting married this September 21st at the Barn at Wolf Creek in Akron, Ohio. We cannot wait to celebrate with them, their families and their friends.
