Ashley knew Len was the man for her during a disastrous trip to Bar Harbor. “Everything seemed to be going wrong, from getting lost on the way to my new car breaking down,” she says. “In spite of all the mishaps, we still had a great time.”
It was during another trip together that Len decided to propose. The couple was heading to New Hampshire for a weekend getaway at their favorite bed and breakfast when they stopped along the Kancamagus Highway for a short hike to a waterfall. While Ashley was busy taking photos, Len was busy writing “Marry Me?” in the sand.
“He told me how he asked my Dad’s permission and had my sister help pick out the ring,” Ashley says. “That is definitely when I started crying, when I realized all the thought he put into the proposal and getting my family involved. It was all a huge surprise, which I still can’t believe.”
The couple, who planned a fall wedding, thought a springtime engagement shoot in an apple orchard would be fun. “Our photographer, Brittany, searched for the perfect orchard with everything in bloom!”
