Josh proposed to me at the Biltmore Estate on Thanksgiving last year. It was my first trip to the beautiful mansion, and all I could think about was how magical the place was when we pulled up. We got out of the car and Josh wanted to take me on a private tour of the gardens. I still didn’t think a ring had been purchased; in fact, his mother had been jokingly giving him grief earlier that day. It had been raining that day, and all I could think about was getting my shoes muddy. He walked me around and around the gardens until he stopped and suggested we take a picture. He took a photo of me and I took one of him. I looked down, away from the sunlight, to check out the picture and when I turned around Josh was on one knee. I can’t remember a happier moment in my life. I was crying and he may or may not have had a tear in his eye as well. I know you’re probably wondering what he said, but Josh and I wanted it to be private and intimate. It was all of that and more! —As told by Ashlee Ashlee and Josh will be married September 3, 2014.
