Due to their history at Pilot, Jake knew it would only make sense to propose to Ashton there as well. The couple is recently married, and they plan to make a stop at Pilot part of their wedding anniversary tradition.

“It seemed fitting that I ask for her hand in marriage at the place she asked for my number,” said Jake. “We call it ‘our Pilot’ and always stop by on the anniversary of when we started dating. Now, we’ll stop by for the anniversary of our marriage.”
