Ashley & Christian’s love story, as told by Ashley:
“Christian and I met 16 years ago through mutual friends. He was in seventh grade and I was in eighth. We “dated” or whatever you want to call it when you are in middle school that year and then I went off to high school. We didn’t have any contact for a year and then the beginning of my sophomore year we reunited, and started dating again. We dated for 4 years, broke up for 4 years (we remained friends) then started dating again in 2006. After 5 years of dating, 3 of those living together he finally popped the question. He took me to Island Prime on December 22, 2011 and got down on one knee after our wonderful waterfront dinner. I was completely blown away! It was absolutely perfect and our waitress got pictures of it all. Then 15 months later in March 2013 we were married at the beautiful Sycuan Resort.”
Ashley & Christian are a beautiful couple and we feel honored to have been able to be a part of their Wedding Ceremony and Reception that was a long time coming! I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful couple all the way back in February of 2012 when they came in for their first tour of our property. I remember instantly noticing the love they have for each other, how laid back and fun they are, and really hoping they would book at Sycuan Resort so I would have the opportunity to make their dream day a reality because they deserved nothing less! Lucky for us they did and it was a very fun year of getting to know them and planning their special day. Ashley & Christian wanted to go with a simple, yet elegant wine theme and I think they pulled it off beautifully. Their décor was not over the top but you could tell there was a lot of thought and attention to detail to make it exactly how the envisioned.
Ashley & Christian booked some fabulous vendors as well which helped in creating such a successful and memorable evening.
