Tommy Astrup and Abby Sekus had been dating for about a year when he proposed to her on the Stone Arch Bridge one snowy night a couple of days before Christmas in 2021.
Love In Bloom
Sparks flew for Ashlee Carlson and Justin Hullander when they met at a wedding in 2017. After three blissful years together, the two were hiking in Ely, and at a picturesque overlook of snow-covered pines, Justin asked Ashlee to be his wife. A dinner celebration that night was made more special when an anonymous couple heard the two talking excitedly about their engagement and paid for their dinner. Their wedding month was especially significant, as the bride’s grandparents married in March, and was also the month the couple had met. Ashlee and Justin said “I do” after their two dogs walked down the aisle as “flower man” and “ring bearer” (both dogs are boys). Bloom Design’s one-of-a-kind floral installation above the head table welcomed spring, and twinkle lights warmed the space. Prosecco from The Tiny Tap flowed all night while guests captured the moment at the photo booth and munched on late-night snacks of cheese curds. The newlyweds couldn’t believe the love they felt that day — for each other, and from friends and family.
