Greetings! My name is Ashlan Prout! I am from a small island in Alaska named Kodiak. Heard of it? It’s home to the largest grizzly bears on earth because of how much fish they eat! Fishing is my family’s occupation and a large part of many Alaskans’ lives. In fact, if it weren’t for salmon, I may have never met Joseph and Hannah! I know it sounds funny, but ask them about it at the wedding! A fun fact about me is that I am majoring in biology at Oral Roberts University, and my favorite hobby is playing the piano. 

I met Joseph and Hannah during my freshman year at Oral Roberts University in Oklahoma last year, and they quickly became a big part of my life. I am so glad to be a part of this celebration and honored and excited to see them move into the next page of their lives.
