Instead, he took her to the place where they first met and proposed.

"Isn't it crazy? Three years ago we met right at this spot on this very beach. I love you so much. You believed in me in time that I haven't believed in myself. You've always been there for me and so supportive, and loving. Don't cry! I don't ever want another day to go by where I don't kiss you and tell you how beautiful you are, how much you mean to me. You're everything to me. You make me the happiest man alive. I had the opportunity to spend the rest of my life with you. So, Ashley, will you marry me?" - Jared proposing to Ashley
