Ashley & Jeremy in Statham, GA
As they were driving home after dinner and the ballet, Jeremy turned to his girlfriend Ashley and told her he had bad news: Bethesda Elementary Park -- where he’d first told Ashley he loved her -- would be torn down, and they should take one last look.
The Bride Ashley Clarke, 21, student
The Groom Jeremy Byars, 24, administrative assistant
The Date November 18
As the two walked toward a lone oak tree with two lanterns hanging in the branches, Ashley noticed a little something bobbing its head up and down. “I thought he had bought me a bobblehead doll,” Ashley says. But as she got closer, she realized it was a pug puppy, and inside the puppy’s ID tube was a note with the words “Will you marry me?”
