I’m so excited to be starting this series again! Meet the BLUSHing bride blog series is back, and we’re kicking it off with one of the sweetest gals I get to work with this year: Aubrey!
Joe and Aubrey have the most adorable love story, and I am so excited to be sharing it with you today. I love that she and Joe share a love for Disney & am truly giddy over all of her fun details filled with personality! It makes me so happy when couples pour their heart and soul into their weddings, and make it reflective of who they are. Their outdoor ceremony site has a gorgeous coastal view, so pair that with their love story & you’ve got the perfect summer wedding!!
Enjoy getting to know these two & seeing a few favorite engagement pictures.
Your Sweetheart’s Name: Joe Ross
How’d you meet?: Our story began in the classroom of “The Learning Lounge” at our school, Grand Canyon University. We were assigned to 40 hours of tutoring grade school students of the community for our scholarship. The only problem was when there were not any kids to be tutored, it became a true form of torture. This was for the main reason that The Learning Lounge did not allow phones, computers, or any other means of avoiding talking to the other students in the lounge. This left us with two options, stare at the blank walls for 5 hours or make conversation, and so we chose the latter.
Joe left that night with one more number in his phone and a very big crush.
In the following three months, he tried countless times to get me to go on a date with him but I was busy and uninterested in anything other than a friendship.
Things he tried:
Texting me. Calling me. Leaving me messages. Asking me out to dinner. Asking me out for ice cream. Offering me rides to her car. Chasing me down outside the cafeteria (literally he ran). Offering to walk with me to class. Offering to walk with me anywhere. Hopping in elevators with me just before the doors were about to close.
Despite my best efforts, the boy would not give up.
Then came the night of Midnight Madness. I was walking home from the game when I made direct eye contact with him. I quickly looked away hoping he didn’t notice. He did. He waved and I walked over to say hello. We exchanged a few words before I once again rushed a goodbye and turned to head home. He knew this would probably be his last shot. Not being one to throw away a buzzer beater, he blurted out “hey, maybe you could show me that spot you were telling me about!”
I smiled, “sure, come on”
