These two exchanged their vows in one of the most dreamy and historic gardens on the East Coast: Airlie Gardens of Wilmington, North Carolina.
As a bachelor contestant on the ABC’s hit romance reality series, The Bachelor, Ashley had won America’s heart from the start and even Steven’s! Steven not only blushingly admitted to watching the show but to also being enamored with Ashley. Talk about love at first sight! When Ashley returned home from The Bachelor, without a rose, Steven quickly asked mutual friends to introduce the two of them.
Needless to say, Ashley and Steven went on their first date and destiny took it from there. Steven proposed to Ashley the day after Christmas, and she said, “YES!”. The celebrations and champagne continued as he produced a grand surprise engagement party afterwards. Mac & B wishes you a marriage filled with everlasting love and fairytale magic. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.!
