Ashley and Rasheeda

August 10, 2019

How They Met
Ashley and Rasheeda met through a mutual friend who suggested the two get together based on their shared love of softball. Eventually, they agreed to a blind date. Three hours of good conversation and laughs (and four whiskey sours) later, they were smitten. 

The Proposal
Ashley says, “Rasheeda knows my favorite foods are pizza and cupcakes!” So when Rasheeda was ready to pop the question, she knew she had to incorporate this into the proposalOn a typical weekly date, after dinner, they ended the night at a local cupcake shop. Rasheeda said she forgot the leftovers outside, but when she returned, she had a picture book of their relationship starting from the first time they met. As Ashley was reading the book, grinning from ear to ear, she found a note at the end with the proposal. “I dropped the book in disbelief to see her on one knee!” 

The Details
The couple picked their particular venue because they were treated like family, plus it had an indoor space with air conditioning for their August wedding! At the ceremony, both brides were full of emotions. Rasheeda’s mother had just passed six months before, and they made sure to include her in every part of the day, including a reserved seat and a special bouquet. Ashley and Rasheeda said personalized vows to each other, their favorite part of the day. Ashley tells us, “Our wedding officiant got to know us personally and told our story better than we could have. It literally brought everyone to tears.” 

The two settled on navy and blush for their colors, the perfect summer palate. The reception was full of fun and signature drinks like “The Queen,” a rum drink named after the newlywed couple. “I had dreamed of a gorgeous wedding with a bomb reception my entire life…and our entire reception was LIT! We had so much fun!”
