Cory and Ashley met as freshman in high school. They began dating their sophomore year. “The endless phone calls and sweet little text messages was the extent of our little relationship. We soon broke up and the fun little fling came to an end. I never stopped liking Cory and little did I know, he never stopped liking me either.”
A few years passed and in 2013 they couple reconnected “and our sweet sweet love story began again.”
140 guests were in attendance for their outdoor June nuptials at Dulaney’s Overlook, including five bridesmaids and four groomsmen.
“Our ceremony was so dreamy. From the moment we booked Dulany’s Overlook, I pictured myself walking through the rose garden towards my groom. My vision became reality on our wedding day and it could not have been more perfect. I think about this moment quite often. All I could do was stare and smile at my handsome soon-to-be husband.”
The couple chose a whimsical and “light and airy feel” for their wedding decor. It included a color palette of blush, sage green, and gold.
“I really enjoyed adding personal touches to our wedding. I was extremely thrilled when Cory and I decided to add our personal favorite, Coca-Cola to our bar. We provided classic glass Coke bottles stored in metal bins for our guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. For dessert, we had an ice cream bar. While we stuck to the tradition of cake cutting, we chose not to serve it. We are the biggest ice cream fans you’ll ever meet. We chose our local creamery, Prigel Family Creamery to cater our special day and boy was it delicious and also a huge hit!”
Ashley works in marketing and Cory works for the State of Maryland. They currently reside in Glen Arm, Maryland.
