Ashlee & Todd | Mornington Peninsula weddings
About Ashlee & Todd
Todd Grierson (26 years old, a trade assistant) and Ashlee Davis (25 years old, a machine operator) first met online back in 2012 and started chatting / texting each other non stop for a month until they finally met up and hang out almost every weekend.
Finally two months later of dating each other, Todd finally kissed Ashlee, although he did have a little mishap the night before being intoxicated and chipped his two front teeth.
A month later Todd was invited to Ashlee’s 21st birthday party, where Ashlee had had a little too much to drink and wasn’t in her best state in the bathroom, where some friends thought it was a great idea to invite Todd into the toilet to see her.
“I was so sick that night, and he still stuck around, that must be true love haha!” Ashlee says.
Ashlee and Todd travelled together to a few counties, as well as a lot of camping trips which they thoroughly enjoyed.
“Todd and I just became so comfortable with each other, we couldn’t see ourselves not having each other in our lives. We loved experiencing new things together and going on adventures.
We started a family, moved out together and got married. now adding more babies to the family.” Ashlee says
Anything changed after the wedding?
Ashlee: “Nothing has really changed being married, not even my last name because I have been so slack in doing that. We lived together before hand, had a child together so there was only so much more we could figure out about each other after being married. Just be open and honest with each other, and if you’re not comfortable in doing that, you might face some tough times. That’s one thing Todd and I have always been, is honest and open without judgment or holding grudges. It also helps to get along with their family because they’re a big impact in each other’s lives, and once there are children involved, they help so much. Just makes it easier, or bite your tongue ha.”
Wedding planning tips
Ashlee: ” Don’t stress out on caring what other people are going to think, at the end of the day it’s what you and your partner want and are happy with so put your wants and needs before others. Also the morning you wake up on your wedding day it all just goes out the window, and you just don’t care anymore, there is only so much you can do.
Have your partner do some of the jobs, even if it’s the easiest jobs, it does take some of the stress off of your shoulders. Do some research but don’t bust your brain on it, it’ll all work out! No regrets.”
