When I first started talking to Ashleigh about her recent engagement to Mikey I could tell right away she was probably one of the sweetest people I have ever talked to. I quickly found out I was wrong. I met with Ashleigh and Mikey (and Mrs. Lisa!) in the cozy corner of a coffee shop to talk about their dreams of their upcoming wedding day and everything in between. It wasn’t until that day when we met in person I realized to call Ashleigh “sweet” was a disservice to her character – she was far more. I could immediately sense her kind and caring nature, how she loves those closest to her deeply, but mostly I could sense how she exuded Christ and how much love she had for Mikey.
While we chatted about color-schemes, timeline ideas, first looks and flowers Mikey watched quietly, interjecting with a smile when his opinion was needed. As conversation shifted from weddings to school, jobs, and life I could see that Mikey was just as kind as Ashleigh, just as caring and selfless and I could easily see the love he has for her.
I have always held the opinion that there is no such thing as “soul mates”. I do not believe that there is only one person with which you can find true love with and while I still hold firm to my belief that marriage is what you make of it, it is hard to imagine Mikey or Ashleigh with anyone else. There are very few people I have come across who fit together as perfectly as these two and I am beyond excited for their future together and being able to document all the moments of their big day!
