Ashton reconnected with an old girlfriend from grade school and began spending time in her social circle. She and Tony clicked from the moment they met and, after a few casual meetings, chose Tony’s birthday to go on the first of many dates.
Two and a half years later, Tony visited Ashton in Austin for a romantic weekend together. The pair laughed and talked over dinner at their favorite restaurant, P.F. Chang’s, then enjoyed a horse and carriage ride through downtown before Tony ended the perfect night by getting down on one knee and asking Ashton to be his wife.
Ashton received her bachelor of science in deaf education at the University of Texas. Tony is currently attending the University of North Texas, where he is studying business management and public relations. Both Ashton and Tony work for the same local real estate law firm. They will say their vows at the Robert Carr Chapel in Fort Worth, and then host a reception at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
