Budding romance blooms into proposal

A smoothie brought them together.

Although Ashley Case and Phillip LaFleur both attended Fillmore Central High School, they never really got to know each other while in school as Case was a senior when LaFleur was a freshman, so they had no classes together.

In July 2012, Case went to the Fillmore County Fair where LaFleur was working at his family business, The Pony Espresso wagon. She bought a smoothie from him and wanted to get to know him better so “I went and bought smoothies every day until he would talk to me,” says Case.

Case also stopped in to see him and buy smoothies during Buffalo Bill Days in Lanesboro, Minn. and then Western Days in Chatfield, Minn. In December of 2012 and January 2013 they began to get to know each other better and went on their first date in February of 2013. For their first date they met at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minn. to watch a wrestling match and went to dinner at Chester’s afterwards.

Both Case and LaFleur are motivated and hard-working people. Case owns Preston Floral & Gift in Preston, Minn. and LaFleur is an athletic trainer for Winona Health, primarily working with women’s basketball, and track and field for Winona State University.

LaFleur stated, “I knew I had to make it a surprise” saying “that was the whole goal when proposing” was to catch her off guard when she least expected it.

On September 13, 2015, after moving him into his new apartment in Lanesboro, she was putting away dishes in the kitchen and “I came up behind her, gave her a cheesy line, and got down on one knee,” explains LaFleur.

Her first words were “you finally did it!” and then she asked if he had asked for her dad’s blessing and, after assuring her that he had, LaFleur asked “so is that a yes?” to which Case happily replied “Yes!”, of course.

LaFleur said he obtained .....
