I DO, WE DO - EPISODE 31: Our Love Story

It’s Valentine’s Day week and we thought it was about time for us to share our love story with you. Isn’t it crazy that it took us 31 episodes to share this story? In this episode, we share how Billy Moyer and Ashley Alaniz met, fell in love, got engaged and became Bashley! You get to hear who was smitten with the other first, how we split the cost of our first date, got engaged after dating for 6 months and had one epic wedding. Music “Sunny” by Bensound.com.

What We Talked About in this Episode:

  • Where we were in our lives before we met in April 2010

    • Billy was almost two years out of college and working to build his business.

      • After trying a bit too hard in past relationships he had decided to focus on work.

    • Ashley was almost a year out of college and had just started her first job.

      • She was still in college mode doing some partying and was living with her parents.

    • A new work friend of Ashley and Billy’s best friend introduced us.

  • Our first date - We went to a restaurant in downtown Fort Worth, Texas where Billy paid and a Comedy Club where Ashley paid.

    • Billy finally went in for a kiss at the door dropping Ashley at home after chickening out many times before

    • Ashley told her friends that night that she was going to marry Billy

  • It took Billy a little longer to know the relationship was for real, but when he did he started looking at rings.

    • This was in July only 6 weeks after our first date

  • We got engaged on November 6, 2010.

    • It happened on a picnic at TCU where Ashley went to college.

    • Billy had a surprise for her which she finally opened.

      • It was a big box and inside was a football that asked her to marry him.

      • Billy got down on one knee and after about 5 seconds that felt like an hour Ashley, said yes.

  • We became Bashley on November 5, 2011.

    • We got married in Saint Mary Cathedral in downtown Austin.

    • Our reception was a ton of fun and it included a Piano Bar!
