Three years after first meeting at a small get together in college, Ash and Kyle went out on their first date to see the movie "50/50". Not a great movie in hindsight, but it was all that was playing at the local movie theatre. They were more interested in who they were watching it with anyways. This initial date led to a second date that consisted of hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This was where they fell in love.
That same year they took their final college spring break trip out to Denver, Colorado to snowboard and explore the Rocky Mountains. One trip to Denver was all it took and they moved out West to live together the following year.
Ash excelled as a kindergarten teacher in the public school system and Kyle worked in fundraising for a local nonprofit. They gained valuable work experience, met some lifelong friends, and loved living in their condo in downtown Denver, but after two years they became restless and set sail to backpack.
I am sure you know a thing or two about this trip ;)
After their journey they settled back into the same Blue Ridge Mountains where the first fell in love. Asheville is their home now and they have lived there for the last year and a half.
On a cloudy, rainy day in April, Kyle brought Ash back to the exact hike of their second date and proposed to her with the dedication section of his book.
They are getting married on their favorite Croatian island with only close family and their wedding party.
