How it began
In short, Michael moved to the Florida Keys from Cape Cod, MA in 1999 and began performing his magic show at the Lorelei Cabana Bar and Restaurant in Islamorada. In 2013 Ashley also moved to Islamorada from Illinois in order to be closer to her Mom who also worked at Lorelei. Ashley got a job there too, and so they meet.
Shortly after meeting, Michael left for his Summer tour. The two chatted online for the three months he was away.
Upon his return, dating ensued, love followed and the rest is history.
