How They Met
Ashley and Allen first met through Ashley’s late cousin at her family’s beach house in Galveston. Months after, Allen had an extra ticket to a concert so Ashley’s cousin gave him her number and the rest is history.
After hiking 3,922 steps into the clouds, Allen proposed at the top of Haiku Stairs in Hawaii. Ashley and Allen’s wedding was held at Bell Tower on 34th, in Houston, TX. The couple chose Bell Tower because of their ability to cater a traditional Asian 7 course family style meal. To top off the night, Ashley and Allen surprised their guests with a choreographed first dance they learned on YouTube.
“Enjoy the day and take it all in because it’s going to go by so quickly! I also highly recommend getting a day-of coordinator. Everything that you could have and should have been planned for your wedding day won’t matter anymore the day of. It’s important for you and your groom to enjoy the day with your friends and family so it’s nice to let someone else take the reins. A day-of coordinator also helps keeps your evening organized and running smoothly! Don’t forget to eat, especially if you’re drinking”
