“While on the way to the lower village, on the Whistler Bridge, Adam all of a sudden stopped.” Ashley said. “He was hunched over like he was tying a shoe lace and all of a sudden he jumped back up took my hand and quickly put something on my finger. As I looked down confused, it took a moment for me to realize what was happening.”
The proposal took Ashley by surprise and she exclaimed “But you didn’t even ask me anything!” to which Adam replied, “It’s implied.” Ashley, of course, said yes, and the two enjoyed a beautiful moment together full of love and laughter.
The couple spent the next year-and-a-half planning their wedding together. The goal was to celebrate their journey together, and they wanted the wedding to represent them. “The entire day was fantastic and we could not have done it without the support of our family, friends, and wedding planner, Wendy Wojcik.”
Their bridal party was a special addition to their day. “The bridal party consisted of the best siblings and friends we could have asked for. I know every couple says that, but we feel truly fortunate for the people that stood with us that day.”
The wedding was held at Semiahmoo Resort, and the décor reflected the waterfront location with a contemporary and classic style spiced with nautical touches. The color palette was black, white, and champagne with just a touch of blush pink. The flowers, an important touch to the day, included beautiful hydrangeas, peonies, and white anemone flowers. Ashley’s bouquet tied all of the flowers together, and a gorgeous flower wall at the reception topped it off.
The bridesmaids wore black floor length tulle dresses in sillouettes of their choice, with sparkly gold shoes. The groomsmen wore classic black shawl collar tuxedos. The dress, from Marcella’s La Boutique in Seattle, was a Vera Wang classic Ghillian. It had beautifully gathered tulle with a sweetheart neckline and asymmetrical waist detail. Ashley wore a simple black sash around her waist tied in a bow in the back.
At the reception, the dance floor was packed the whole night. As the guests danced the night away they enjoyed delicious food catered by Semiahmoo Resort. To start there was framboise and brie salad and the entrée was orange horseradish crusted Chilean sea bass. “We consider ourselves very blessed,” Ashley said. “Everyone had waited a long time for us to be married and the wait was definitely worth it.”
Ashley & Adam

While attending a mutual friend’s birthday party at Western Washington University, Adam spotted Ashley across the room. He made his way over to her and introduced himself. Ashely was shy, and didn’t know what to think of him, but the two hung out for the night. The next morning Ashley was pleasantly surprised when the phone rang and Adam’s number popped up. That phone call started what they both lovingly refer to as their “Date Weekend Marathon.” On Friday, the two went to the Woodland Park Zoo followed by dinner and a movie. On Saturday, they had a romantic dinner together at Newcastle Golf Club. On Sunday, they enjoyed the day at a Mariner’s game and evening at the Seattle Pier.
After eight amazing years together, Adam popped the question. He wanted everything to be perfect; he had the ring, and planned a romantic weekend trip to Whistler, B.C. The two spent a lovely day together enjoying the beautiful weather. After a delicious dinner by a cozy open fire, Adam took Ashley on an evening stroll through the village.
