Engaged!!!






After more than a handful of "Are you being serious?" texts, I decided it's time to give the official public "blog" statement. I am engaged! I know I haven't mentioned Brian before on my blog, but he's just too good to share!!



Anyway, his name is Brian. Brian Scurr. He is from Mesa, AZ, and we met through my friend Morgan (to whom I am forever indebted). She set us up, and it worked!! I was shocked. No really, shocked. And now I’m engaged, and shocked that this boy really likes me!


I know you, my blog friends, and you’re looking for more pictures right now, aren’t you? Sorry, more to come. I know the only reason you will keep reading is to know the good details:


-He proposed by setting up our first date again. His cute sister and Morgan helped him set everything up. I actually was really surprised and got really nervous!


-Brian picked out the ring all by himself. He didn’t love that I made him choose something haha but it is BEAUTIFUL!!! It means so much more to me knowing that it’s truly from HIM.

-We’re getting married August 13 in Las Vegas!!


-I’m graduating May 1 (woo woo), but he still has a year of school left. We’ll be back to Utah for another year of school in the fall.

Annnnd I'm just really, really happy :) Seriously, I've never been so happy!! I'm amazed that I found this boy. I could go on and on...


Ok, and maybe I'm just not girly enough (but I am), but I've never, ever thought about my wedding before. Is that weird? I've never thought about what I wanted it to be like, where it would be, what my bridesmaids would wear, what colors I would use... the only thing I've ever thought about is the cake and my shoes. I have priorities in wedding planning, obviously.


So if anyone has advice for a wedding…I welcome ANY suggestions!

ASHTON!! Congratulations!! I was going to try setting you up with my brother in law. he'll be bummed. :oP HAH! I'm so EXCITED FOR YOU!!! He looks like a catch! Just like YOU are. And I hadn't really ever thought about my wedding before it happened. I think that actually HELPS. you are able to make your decisions quicker and more efficiently, and then you aren't so stressed out because it's "not JUST as you want it". So! Have fun and go with the flow!! I'm really excited for more pictures and more posts to come!

Yeah!!! Exciting news! Tons of new happenings lately, eh?

You should check out Walker Bridal on Center Street in Provo (between University and 100 W) They have beautiful dresses and they can be inexpensive (especially their sales.)

Are you walking? You better be! Then I can see you next Friday.

Again, congratulations :)

Ashton & Brian;
What a great looking pair. You are tall and handsome Brian and you Ashton have gorgeous tall shoes!!!
(And course you are gorgeous..you take after your mom and grandma!!?). Your mom was so gorgeous in her dress.
You will look so great in your Mexican wedding dress we bought for you.
Brian we couldn't get the sombero in the suitcase....BUT...we could the Serapi. It will match fairly well if Aston decides not to remove the few pink & orange flowers from the dress.
I can't wait until May 1st to see you We call for a dinner or lunch date in the next day or so. At your convenience of cours.
Love Grandma

congrats!! it's so fun being married! Paris and i were engaged for 7 months, it sucked, so u guys are already on the right track going w/ 4, that's perfect time! i NEVER thought about wedding ideas either, c'mon, it's me ur dealing w/! it took me forever to choose colors, dresses, etc, but ideas to make it go by faster than mine: get bride's magazines and flip through for color-theme ideas (that's where i got mine), ideas about ur dress (u see what styles u are attracted to), and same for your bridesmaids dresses. they seriously help a lot, good luck and have fuN! hope to see u sooN!

YAY! i was so happy to run into you the other day. you will be a gorgeous bride. your ring is the bomb. and your man seems nice too, although i met him for 2 seconds. LOVE!

The Facers said...

Congratulations! I saw on Joeley's blog thats why I said I heard a good rumor about you! I am so excited for you and to meet your guy!

I would not worry too much about wedding planning, don't you know these two ladies named Michelle Hawker and Wendy Hansen,ha!? I mean those two women were a HUGE help with mine since my mom was sick. You are in good hands!

Also, if you are in the market for hair and make up I am on the bridal circuit in Vegas these days. I do bridal shows and I have a make up girl that is AMAZING. You can check out her stuff at flawlessmakeupart.blogspot.com

Another thought--don't know if you have a photographer yet, but look at this website:
dustinizattphoto.blogspot.com
I didn't use him because I didn't know about him then, but I am obsessed with his work and i stalk his photo blog ALL the time.

Melissa & Chris Wood said...

so I am happy that you blogged about the engagement but you need to put a picture of the ring asap!!!

Dustin AND Chelsie said...

Oh Ashton! I'm so excited for you! Dust said if he would have known how serious you 2 were he would have taken more time at the fairwell to get to know him:) He is way cute and so are you! Did grandma tell you what she wants to do for your shower? If not I don't want to spoil it, so ask her. But I can't wait! It's not New York, but close! Anyways congrats girl!Also I'm having a pants party on Friday May 1st at 6:00. (true religion, 7's, and rockin republic) all under $80. hope you can come! I would love to see ya!

Congrats you hot bride-to-be! I have to say, this is my favorite post. You outlined this post perfectly and answered all the questions that were running through my mind. I like it. You guys are super cute and I love the kissing picture! Wait wait, I do have one more question.. what do you want your wedding shoes to look like? Do you already have them? (Be honest. I wont tell.)
