Introducing Ashley and Toby, these two will be having a Christmas Wedding and will be saying
“I Do” on December 20, 2020!
How did we meet?
“Nothing compares with the finding of true love; because once you do your heart is complete.” It seems like we searched forever for each other but as soon as we met, we knew. Toby and I met on a social networking site in October of 2016. We were both teachers, 4th and 7th grade, teaching the same subject, Texas History. We began talking and found that was not the only thing we had in common. We both love music and collecting vinyl records. After talking for a few weeks, we decided to meet in person. Toby wanted me to see one of his favorite record stores, so we decided to meet there. This record store, Josey Records, is where we feel in love. It was an instant love, and we never looked back. Now we have a daughter, named Josephine, that was born in July. We call her Josie, to commemorate the place where we first fell in love.
How did Toby propose?
On Labor Day weekend, Toby and I decided to take our daughter to our favorite park, Celestial Park in Addison. We have had dates there and we took our maternity pictures there, and it’s just a beautiful park. So we loaded Josie up, who was only about a month and half old, and headed to Addison. We walked up to the sun dial part of the park, that overlooks the whole area. I had turned around to look and when I turned back, Toby was getting down on one knee to ask me to be his wife. In true Toby fashion, he dropped the ring in the grass from being so nervous! It was a perfect moment that fully captures our love and life together.
Why did we choose the French Farmhouse?
I immediately knew when I pulled into the driveway that this would be the place we would become husband and wife. I had been chatting with the sweet Kelsey about the venue, and felt very confident in what I would find at the French Farmhouse. Upon meeting Michelle, I felt completely at ease and sure. She is such a sweet person with such a wonderful vision for each couple and how to connect the property. We instantly connected when discussing the prayer trail and what it meant to her. Even though the venue is currently in progress, the style and the grace is absolutely shown throughout the entire property. I just immediately felt a connection to Michelle and her vision.
What am I most excited about on our wedding day?
I am excited to showcase our love of each other, our daughter, and our family and friends. It will be a very loving and inclusive affair. Our good friend, Jesse, will be our officiant while we will also be incorporating our closest family and friends. I just can’t wait for us all to become one. I love that everyone will be together, for us. I am so glad to have found the French Farmhouse, which will be the perfect setting for our special wedding.
