Today’s engagement story is about how Jeff and Ashley became engaged! Declan DJ’ed their wedding on May 31, 2014. Here’s his recap of that wedding!
Ashley explains how Jeff proposed:
It was September 1st 2012, on a trip to visit Jeff’s family in Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania.
Jeff asked me if I wanted to pack a lunch and take the kids on a hike up Mount Pisgah. We have three children, Marissa, Makenna, and Jace. It was a beautiful day for a hike and it worked out that there weren’t too many people on the trails.
Once we got up to the top of the mountain, there was a couple sitting out on the lookout ledge. Jeff suggested that we walk over to a clearing that was near the lookout and eat our lunch and wait for the couple to move on.
While we were finishing up lunch, I noticed that Jeff was growing increasingly irritated with the couple because they had not yet moved.
The kids were getting anxious so he said we should go walk around some more and maybe circle back.
We came back about 10 minutes later and the lookout was open. We took the kids out and were looking out on the valley when Jeff said “Ashley Rae Roughsedge, will you marry me”.
So on top of a mountain with our kids as witnesses I said YES!
