Ashley & Cesar are getting married this summer at The Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Oregon.
How they met, in Ashley’s own words:
I remember sitting in my room getting ready for our first date trying to find the perfect dress. I was so nervous that I called a friend over to settle me down. There was just something so unique about Cesar, the way he carried himself; so sure of everything yet so mysterious at the same time.
Our first date was a surprise, he took me on a romantic dinner on the Portland Spirit. From that moment on, I knew I could spend the rest of my life trying to figure him out.
Almost two years later, he said that he’d like to take me and a couple of our friends on the Portland Spirit again. So we did. After we ate and the night started to unfold, Cesar gracefully got out of his seat and said he was going to check something out. Moments later, I heard his voice over the microphone, only to turn and see that he’s on stage. I quickly joined him on stage. When he was finished with his beautiful speech, he got down on one knee and proposed. We both cried the happiest tears and I said, “yes!”. He then turned me around to the small crowd, to find that he had snuck my parents on the boat to watch my special moment. It was so magical!
Now I get to find the perfect dress once more!
For their engagement session, we went to Government Cove in Cascade Locks, OR, where there was still snow on the ground which provided a beautiful winter wonderland backdrop for them! Note Ashley’s cute snow boots poppin’!! Congratulations on your engagement, Ashley & Cesar! We will see you guys again in a few more months!! 🙂
XOXO Rebecca & Jerome
