Beach Wedding Proposal; Plans For Rhode Island's Marriage
After nearly three years of remaining close friends, Jared and Ashley Laconetti decided to give a romantic perspective to their friendship. They started dating each other in March 2018, but Ashley confirmed their relationship by posting a YouTube video on 22 May 2018.
The timing was perfect for the couple as Ashley had recently broken up with her ex-boyfriend Kevin Wendt in March 2018. Ashley and Kevin were in a long-distance relationship as she resides in Los Angeles whereas Kevin is located in Canada. The couple parted their ways after dating for a few months.
Post their break up, Jared who was always a loyal friend to Ashley, grew close to her and thus their romance prospered. The couple was always assumed to be more than friends with Ashley even expressing her feelings of attraction to Jared on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise in 2015, although the proposal was declined by him.
However, Jared, age 29, was not about to miss the opportunity twice as he soon proposed to Ashley for marriage after dating only for three months. Jared, who is currently in Mexico for the shooting of the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise, popped the question to Ashley on Sunday, 15 June 2018.
The couple was strolling around a beach when suddenly Jared got down on one knee and raising the engagement ring, and he proposed his girlfriend to be his fiance.

A source revealed that the proposal didn't come out as a shock to Ashley as she was anticipating this move on the part of Jared. The source told PEOPLE,
"Ashley had her suspicions that an engagement would happen in Mexico but she didn’t want to get herself too psyched out and then have nothing happen. They’re both thrilled though!"
The lovers, who first met on Bachelor in Paradise, are genuinely in love and thankful towards the show for pairing up the lovebirds. In a July 2018 interview with Good Morning America, Jared who possesses a Caucasian ethnicity said,
"I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that everything's worked out, because I'm engaged and couldn't be happier to the love of my life, to the most amazing human being on this world. And so I just feel like a very, very lucky man."
"I'm so lucky. Seriously, every single day I'm like, 'I don't know how I'm this lucky. I am so blessed."
The recently engaged pair is planning to get married in August 2019 in Rhode Island, the home state of Jared.
Further, the couple hopes to raise a family with two to three children, and they have even decided the name of one of their future kids. Ashley told,
"We know the name of one of them ... but I'm not putting it out there. It's a boy name but if we're going onto our third kid and it's a third straight girl, we're definitely using it."
While the couple is busy preparing for their wedding next year, they are still enjoying their time before making a life-long commitment. And, congratulations are in order for the lovely couple as they embark on a journey to start a family.
Jared, who also performs the job of a restaurant manager, has a net worth of more than $100 thousand; so money might be the less of a problem for the partners to hold a lavish wedding reception.
