Ashley and Jeremy, who were married in the Newport Beach LDS temple, first found each other thanks to a mutual friend, a fast food restaurant, and their undergrad program. “We met at Chipotle in Orem, UT. We had a mutual friend who introduced us. I guess, Jeremy saw me and wanted my number, and the friend he was sitting at the table with knew me,” Ashley says. “I was going to school at UVU. He’s from Arizona and was attending BYU at the time.”
“He called me after a little while and then we texted for a long time before we went on our first date a few months after we met,” she says. “We went to the Cheesecake Factory in Salt Lake, then walked around City Creek. We started hanging out a month after our first date with friends and then we began officially dating last June. He came home to Newport Beach with me for Christmas where he surprised me with a proposal at the beach the day before Christmas Eve, December 23.”
“My sister is a photographer and she asked us to do a shoot for her portfolio. Of course, we chose the beach. It was 7:30 in the morning and I remember that the light was perfect outside,” Ashley says. “She told me to walk toward the ocean, so I did and when I turned around Jeremy was down on one knee. My parents popped out after he proposed. I had no idea they were all in on it together!”
“As far as wedding planning went, everything fell into place perfectly. I had a lot of people who came together to help me. It was easy. I knew my photographer and videographer from Utah and nothing went wrong. I didn’t over plan and it just fell into place. It felt like a dream. It felt magical and everything went perfectly. It was amazing,” she says.
“Jeremy was emotional and a little teary eyed. My favorite part of our wedding was being with my family and being able to just be with Jeremy,” Ashley says. “While we were getting married and looking into each other’s eyes, it was like we were in our own little world.”
Ashley and Jeremy Mohn were married June 10, 2017 in the Newport Beach LDS temple. Their reception was celebrated with friends and family in Ashley’s backyard in Corona, California.
