How They Met

The couples’ love story began through mutual friends. Evan, smitten from the start, obtained Ashley’s number from a friend and wasted no time calling her. On their first dinner date, Evan confidently declared he would marry her. From that night on, Evan sent Ashley one rose every day until she agreed to be his girlfriend. He affectionately called her his wife even before the formal proposal.

The Proposal

Despite Evan’s claims of not being the type to propose on one knee, he orchestrated a grand and romantic proposal at Crown Sydney with the help of Diane Khoury Weddings and Events. In a surprising twist, Evan dropped to one knee, and amidst laughter and tears, Ashley said yes. It was only fitting that the couple chose to marry at Crown Sydney, continuing their tradition of love and romance.

The Couples’ Favorite Moment

Reflecting on their wedding, Ashley and Evan shared a favorite moment: “A true partnership is never 50/50, it’s about being there to carry 80% when your partner can only give 20% that day, and vice versa. This is the essence of a genuine connection. Our favorite moment of the wedding was our extravagant entry for sure!! The 30 drummers, the Violinist Sally Cooper, the Sax, and the rest just made it. I wish we had a bigger room to fit more drummers.”
