It was a beautiful weekend at Blue Valley Vineyard, and the perfect picturesque setting for my bride and groom to tie the knot! Alyssa and Ashton got married at Blue Valley Vineyard in Delaplane, VA on May 22, 2021. Alyssa called on Terry Kaye Events to bring to life her ethereal vision of a vineyard wedding, and they did a fantastic job!
Like so many other people today, Alyssa and Aston found themselves in the throes of the online dating world, and after a quick swipe on Bumble, (imagine that!) this perfect pair made their way from their phones all the way to the alter! After going on many dates and spending a lot of time together, Ashton knew that he wanted Alyssa to be his girlfriend. It took a little convincing, but his persistence paid off! Alyssa revealed to her family that they planned to marry just two weeks after they had started dating. How sweet! There were some curveballs, the first being Alyssa having to move back to California to finish college. They made the most out of their long distance relationship, and in April of 2018 after her graduation, Alyssa journeyed back to Maryland to be closer to Ashton. They loved living close to each other!
In December 2019, Alyssa received some shocking news regarding her health. She underwent brain surgery to remove an arteriovenous malformation. While she was in the ICU, Ashton asked her parents for their blessing because he wanted to propose. Both of Alyssa’s parents were thrilled and proposal plans were quickly put into place. Two weeks after surgery, Ashton and Alyssa were in Kentucky with Alyssa’s family. On their second night there, he made a heartfelt speech thanking the family, and ended it with the surprise of a lifetime: He asked Alyssa to spend the rest of her life with him! Alyssa, overwhelmed with this sweet gesture of his commitment and love, began crying, and had to remember to answer the question. It was a definite “YES!”
