Ashley, who grew up in the DC area, and Travis, from the suburbs of Chicago, met working for Facebook in Austin, Texas. Each year on the anniversary of their first date, they dined at Lenoir, the “romantic, vintage-chic” restaurant where their relationship began. On their third return, Travis proposed in a private room with Sampha’s “(No One Knows Me) Like the Piano” accompanying the mood. At their “romantic, vintage-chic” springtime wedding, Ashley made her entrance to the same song.

They wed and hosted their reception in the string-lit garden at Anderson House on Embassy Row on April 30, 2022. Among the groom’s favorite moments was when their two-year-old nephew, the ring bearer, sprinted up the aisle after a few reluctant moments. The reception menu, they say, featured dishes that represented the couple “in every way possible,” including a late-night spread of Chicago-style hot dogs. Their personalized playlist kept guests moving to the beats of house and disco tracks. Following the celebration, the couple honeymooned in Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
