It was love at first sight… for Kent, that is. Though Ashleigh wasn’t remotely interested in Kent, there was one common bond they shared – cameras. Kent had been photographing and filming for years, and Ashleigh would occasionally ask Kent about different camera settings. It was a.. geeky beginning..
Long Drives to Weddings
As time passed, Kent needed an assistant for a wedding and reached out to Ashleigh. Ashleigh surpassed all of Kent’s expectations, and Kent continued to reach out to Ashleigh whenever he could. Thankfully for Kent, this led to long drives that carved out time to just talk about life and the things that were on their hearts.
After months of their deepening friendship, Kent finally worked up the courage to ask Ashleigh if she would consider being his girlfriend. He was a nervous mess, and she saw it coming a mile away. Ashleigh revealed that she liked someone else anyway but would “be praying about it” – which is often the Christian way of saying “Nope.”
A Miracle of God
However, Ashleigh actually did pray about it – and she discovered she actually really liked Kent as well. They began dating in December, were engaged by June, and said “I Do” by October. To Kent this was radical, tangible proof that God is still in the miracle-working business… because, let’s face it, Ashleigh is way out of his league.
