Ashley and Colby
Pretty in Pink
September 17, 2011
Ashley Anne Purnell and Colby Allan Mooney met and began dating in 2009. After a few months, Colby’s brigade was called to deploy and leave the country. Ashley and Colby’s relationship grew quickly despite the miles and ocean between them, thanks to free AT&T minutes. When Colby returned home in late February, their relationship continued to grow.
On December 17, 2010, Colby told Ashley he had won tickets to the Cinderella play in town. They attended the play and afterwards Colby asked a stranger to take a picture of the two of them. As the photo was being snapped, Colby got down on one knee and asked Ashley to marry him. “The rest is ‘Happily Ever After,’” says Ashley.
Their wedding theme was “The Perfect Fit” which sprung from the Cinderella story that they watched on the night of their engagement. Ashley used pink throughout the wedding to create a feminine, romantic aura. They had a beautiful wedding day and embraced the slightly rainy weather for some fabulous photo-ops!
