Jacob Pinkerton & Ashleigh Dean

Siloam Springs, Arkansas

Jacob and Ashleigh met in the fall of 2007 at John Brown University. They became good friends, and kept in touch after Jacob left JBU to work full time back home in North Carolina. They continued to talk, and even visited each other a few times over the next 2 years. In December of 2009, Jacob sent Ashleigh a letter saying he would return to JBU in January. Ashleigh was stoked!

On February 12, 2010, Jacob asked Ashleigh to be his girlfriend.

Fast forward to the fall of 2012: Ashleigh knew their engagement was forthcoming, but really wanted to be surprised by it. And surprised she was! On September 28, 2012, Jacob took her on a casual walk around the JBU campus, ending at the "100 Stairs" - the same place they met 5 years earlier. He dropped to one knee and popped the question, "Ashleigh, will you marry me?" After getting over the excitement and shock, Ashleigh said, "YES!!"
