Ashley Singleton and Nathan Aerosmith took a photo together within minutes of meeting each other in 2017. The image does not mark the moment they fell in love, or even the first time they felt attracted to each other. He all came later.
It was spoken to a mutual friend who suggested to Mr. Aerosmith that he keep an eye out for Ms. Singleton at Georgetown University, where they were both beginning to master in business administration programs. He did not have to look far. Future couples assigned seats next to each other on the first day of class.
“I bent over and said – retrospectively it looks super scary – ‘Chad says hello,” Mr. Arrowsmith said. Unfortunately, the message to Ms. Singleton was not expected. “I was definitely confused,” he said.
Instead of silencing the situation’s vulnerability, Mr. Aerosmith explained that he also graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology and that he knew some of the same people of his time. He decided to commemorate the encounter with a selfie and used it to tell his unwitting matchmaker that they would meet.
Nearly three years later, in February 2020, Mr. Aerosmith surprised her again in the same class.
Ms. Singleton, who had graduated and was working in the university’s Office of Advancement, arrived at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business that day, thinking that she would be a senior in the MBA program about a new social institution initiative The colleague was going to talk with the dean.
Distracted by the importance of the meeting, he did not notice that he was being taken to the room where he and Mr. Arosmith first met or that Dean had not entered with him.
Even when she saw her lover, who was still in the process of completing her degree, the pieces did not immediately find a place. Ms. Singleton said, “I asked her if she had gone there for the test when I went in.”
Mr. Aerosmith used this argument so that his proposal met all of Ms. Singleton’s criteria. She told him that she wanted to be surprised, even though they had discussed getting married and that she knew that she had already bought the engagement ring, and that it was important for her to get engaged in Georgetown, because They developed their bond there itself. She also wanted to be prepared for the occasion.
“I knew Ashley, because it was a meeting with the dean, that day would be great,” said Mr. Aerosmith, 35, and an operations research analyst for the United States Department of Defense. He later shared a bottle of champagne with Mr. Aerosmith’s firm colleagues.
“I was really angry that morning, because there were no suspicious plans on my calendar,” said Ms. Singleton, 30, who was waiting for an offer but wasn’t sure when it would happen.
The pair were married on 27 February at Lincoln Memorial, 27 miles from Georgetown. His friend Richard Brunner, who had registered in the city court as a temporary court for the occasion, committed the crime.
He invited only two other friends to join him, but the park was busier than his scouting missions and began to gather while preparing spectators, family and colleagues to attend the ceremony, including They could not attend due to the epidemic.
“I think we had forgotten the crowd by the end, so when we kissed, the 200 people, who have all gone quiet apparently by the time we were getting married, started cheering which surprised the two of us.” Said Mr. Aerosmith.
