Kara and Ashley have TWO engagement stories!
They each proposed to the other on separate occasions.
Ashley proposed to Kara first, at Cheeseman Park in Denver – a favorite summer time hang spot of theirs. Ashley told Kara that they were attending a fancy dinner at a friend’s house that night (to encourage cute outfit choices). On the way to “dinner”, they had to “pick up a friend at the park to give her a ride to the dinner.” Upon arrival the park, Ashley walked with Kara up to the famous, beautiful pillars at the park. While walking up, Kara assured Ashley that they were certainly going to be mugged at the dark park. Ashley had to point out the flower pedals, candles and the lovely song by one of our favorite artist playing in the background. Kara immediately was brought to tears and simultaneously realized we were in fact NOT going to be mugged but were going to get engaged.
Ashley dropped to one knee, rambled some sweet words, and asked Kara to be her wife.
Through tears and the biggest smile, Kara said yes! Ashley had friends hiding (who helped with the decorations and music) take photos to capture the moment!
