after the online dating scene began to look bleak, both Ashley and Julien reluctantly left their accounts open even though they were both ready to quit looking. eventually, Julien messaged Ashley, who thought to herself, ‘why not?,’ and began corresponding with him. They chatted for about two weeks before they met for their first date at The Keg Steakhouse. From that first meeting, they both knew that they had found something special, and got engaged a day after their six month anniversary. with a nod to their love of tropical vacations, the pair planned a destination wedding in the following six months, and were married in the Dominican Republic in March – the perfect juxtaposition for their snowy engagement photo session in the edmonton river valley.
