We’re Engaged! Melissa & Ashley

Phillesbian.com announces the engagement of Ashley (of Camp Hill, PA) to Melissa (of Arvada, CO).

Melissa (of Arvada, CO) graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA and is the Assistant Production Manager at Walnut Street Theatre. Ashley (of Camp Hill, PA) graduated from Penn State and is a freelance theatre professional.

Melissa and Ashley met as apprentices at Walnut Street Theatre in August 2008. After several months of “will they, won’t they,” Ashley asked Melissa out on a date on Memorial Day, to which their friends exclaimed, “FINALLY!!!”

While vacationing at Rehoboth Beach, DE, Melissa and Ashley went to dinner at an upscale Oyster House for their 3 Year Anniversary on June 15, 2012. On their way back to the hotel, Ashley suggested a walk on the beach, even though it was a chilly and windy evening. They climbed a lifeguard stand and Ashley played Melissa a video slideshow on her phone of photos of the two of them set to Jason Mraz’ “I’m Yours” (their song).

As the slideshow came to an end, Ashley got down on one knee on the lifeguard stand making her eye to eye with Melissa, and popped the question.  She said YES!  Once they got back to the warmth of the hotel, Melissa went up to Ashley with a ring and proposed right back. She said YES TOO!

The wedding will be in the evening on the Chesapeake Bay in Rosehaven, MD on August 2, 2013. They fell in love with the venue and booked before there was marriage equality in Maryland. They were overjoyed election night when it passed!

Congrats Melissa & Ashley!
