William Kennelly Ullman and Ashley Kendig Bakkensen

Kendig Bakkensen/ Kennelly Ullman

Ashley Kendig Bakkensen and William Kennelly Ullman, of Portland, Ore. announce their engagement.

The bride-to-be is the daughter of Debbie and Drew Bakkensen, of Portland and Chuck Kendig, of Los Angeles, Calif. She graduated from Jesuit High School in 2007 and attended Oregon State University. She is employed as a bridal consultant at David’s Bridal in Beaverton.

Her fiancé is the son of Marilyn Kennelly and John Ullman, of Yachats. He is a 2002 graduate of Waldport High School. In 2012, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in community development from Portland State University, where he competed on the bicycle racing team. He is currently employed by Bravo Environmental in Portland.

The two met in Portland while picking up William's nephew and Ashley's little brother at pre-school; the two boys are best friends, and this caused Ashley and William to bump into each other, at which point they were formally introduced by William's older brother, Mark.  They had their first date a few days later and the rest is history. The couple enjoys cooking, traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with their family and friends.

An outdoor wedding is planned for Aug. 31, at the Coastal Mountain Sport Haus near Vernonia.
