We're Married!

It's been a week since we were sealed for time and all eternity. It has been a wonderful week where we have gotten to know each other better. We spent the week moving into our spacious two bedroom apartment without moving into one of the bedrooms. Ashley asked Kylee (a friend from Inkom) to move in so she wouldn't have to live in the apartment all alone. So, it has been harder to find places for things to go without taking advantage of the second bedroom. Ashley has absolutely LOVED living with Kylee though. It has definitely been one big HUGE party! :) 

But back to the wonderful day of marriage, we loved walking into the sealing room and seeing so many people that we knew and loved. It was so comforting to know every single face in the room and realize how much we loved each one. Getting the huge blessing to participate in a sealing in the House of our Lord helped our testimonies of the gospel grow and strengthen. We know that if we keep covenants made to each other and to the Lord, we can be a family for eternity. What a beautiful concept. "The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan."

After taking billions of pictures and loosing all feeling in our faces from smiling again and again, we headed down to stuff our faces at Chuck A'Rama (or as Ashley calls it, Chuck-Your-Grandma). The food was delicious after having such an early start that morning. It was nice to finally eat something. Then we all embarked on our journey to the spot on the map titled Inkom. If you are reading this wondering "where in the world is Inkom?" you aren't the only one. Inkom a small town about 10-15 minutes south of Pocatello. We spent the evening there at our reception and completed the day by driving back to Rexburg. It was such a long day, but definitely the best day ever! 

We feel blessed to finally be married. It seems that all the stress we had has left us and we are on cloud 9. As we hope that this fairy tale of no stress will never end, we move towards the day of one more reception and then our escape to the Oregon coast (woohoo!) Our reception here in Washington is well planned and will turn out beautiful! 


For those of you who were not able to make it to our special day, here is a little peek into some of the pictures! We want to thank everyone for your love and support! We love all you guys! 

Keep the Faith, 

The Wright Family

The Final Countdown.


Well, this is it! This is my last week as a single woman. It still doesn't feel real. Come Friday, I will no longer be Ashley Elizabeth Bullock, I will be Ashley Elizabeth Wright. I have been dreaming about finding my prince charming and having my fairytale wedding from the time I was 3?4? Something like that. How surreal, that in 4 days my dream day will be here. Excited is definitely an understatement.

TODAY - 4 days!
TUESDAY - 3 days!
WEDNESDAY - 2 days!
THURSDAY - 1 day!
FRIDAY - It's HERE!

It is SO close! I feel like it can't come fast enough. I look forward to having someone be there for me forever. Having someone who will do anything to make me happy. I look forward to not saying good bye every night, instead just saying goodnight and fall asleep next to each other. Drew is more than I dreamed of as a 3 year old girl. He is incredible. I love him so much! I am ecstatic to start this new adventure with him. I can't thank everyone who has been involved with the planning of the wedding and our SUPER support system enough! You guys are the best!

As you can tell, Life is good. :)
