At Betsy Robinson’s Bridal Collection we have both the pleasure and the privilege of being involved in the lives of so many wonderful brides. We get to hear about their proposals and admire their rings and get to know them and their love stories. We share in their special day from the very beginning when they pick out their gown. Then we follow them through their journey right down to the day they take it with them. It’s pretty neat to be a part of that. On a day-to-day basis it’s a great reason to get up and go to work. But today, it’s just a little bit better. Today we get to announce that one of our own will be tying the knot!



You may have spied our bridal consultant Ashley Gray on our Instagram account or our Facebook page or working diligently in the salon. She has been here for nearly five years, and since that time she has played the model bride on dozens of occasions. This time she gets to do it for real. This past Sunday Ashley got engaged to fiancé Martin Simon in a private proposal at Loch Raven Reservoir. With help from family and friends Martin also planned a giant surprise birthday party for Ashley immediately following the proposal. It was a surprise party in which everyone got a surprise. The crowd yelled happy birthday and then Ashley gave her announcement with her hand raised. More screaming followed, which was pretty much our reaction here.



We are so thrilled for Ashley and have already begun to pepper her with a million wedding planning questions. No, she doesn’t have exact date just yet. She’s at the start of a long journey toward matrimony, and we’re going to let you in on it. Follow us and Ashley as she plans her wedding, picks her gown and counts down the days. We’ll check in with her periodically to hear more of her story and more of her experiences as she plans her big day.
