“Friday Night Lights in Love” They lived in neighboring towns and went to rival high schools. Most would say that Governor Mifflin High School and Wilson High School have nothing in common. However, no rivalry can ever come between true loves!
In 2012, Anthony and Ashley met in Virginia Beach, VA through mutual friends… They knew it was meant to be when they spent over 4 hours talking and walking on the boardwalk. They just knew… No person or thing could come between the love they felt, not even the challenges ahead.
Anthony joined the Armed Forces and was scheduled for deployment in September 2013. Having found their forever love, they decided that they should marry before he left in June 2013. Since they married in front of a small intimidate crowd due to time constraints, they decided that they would seal their “wedding date” back to where it all started in Virginia Beach, VA on June 2015.
As the artist, I thought it fitting that we would show their love story by taking it back to the old school… An homage to “West Side Story” high school sports style; from a 1966 VW Bug, to the authentic Wilson Letterman’s jacket, to the skirt embroidered with an “A”…we created a “Friday Night Lights in Love’.
Regardless of high school rivalries or being worlds apart, true love conquers all…
