Aaron and Ashley met on the bus while commuting from their jobs in Frederick. After exchanging numbers and chatting on the phone, they decided a first date was in order. The couple got engaged in May 2016, while celebrating the anniversary of Ashley’s parents.
The couple had three bridesmaids, three groomsmen, and one flower girl in their wedding party. 120 guests were in attendance at their Walkersville Community Church ceremony. “The ceremony was great and everything was perfect. Many High School friends and family members joined our celebration, some from out of town,” Aaron mentioned.
Ashley said her favorite part of the day was seeing Aaron dressed in his tuxedo and seeing her “parents and grandparents so happy for us.” Aaron shared that his favorite part of the day was watching Ashley walk down the aisle.
The couple chose a beach theme for their wedding. Coral, teal and blue adorned the decor at the reception. “We set up chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, some tropical plants and beach fencing to create a scene for people to sit and take pictures. The lanterns were all painted by Ashley’s mom and aunt to match the sand color.” The couple used seashells to write guest’s names for the seating chart. Aaron’s friend made lighthouses as gifts for their mothers.
Ashley works at Giant. Aaron is a Sales Associate at Walmart and also the equipment manager for the Walkersville High School Football Team. They currently live in Walkersville.
