Asheley & Nathan in Bend, OR
One could say that Nate is a persistent guy. In grammar school, he asked Asheley out several times, and every time she turned him down. They became good friends, and during their junior year of high school, Nate tried asking again. That time, Asheley decided to give him a chance, and the two have been together ever since.
The Bride Asheley Martino, 22, graphic designer and tech support
The Groom Nathan Hayes, 22, carbon fiber fabricator
The Date June 21
On Christmas Eve on their five-year anniversary, Nathan took Asheley out to dinner at their favorite restaurant. When Asheley excused herself from the table, Nathan hid an engagement ring in her napkin. “He picked out the ring all by himself and it fit just perfectly!” says Asheley. The couple chose Aspen Hall for the wedding site and used a yellow-and-gray color palette to pull together all of the details.
