This is the story of my beloved brother who recently (December 3, 2011) got engaged. It's one of the best I've ever seen.
Please watch the video because it explains the story the best:
But the story goes,
One morning Micah picked up Rachel, blindfolded her, and took her to a small airport. Micah is a pilot in Tampa, Florida, and Rachel had never flown with him before. Once at the hangar, where the small plane was waiting that Micah had rented, he removed her blindfold. They boarded the plane and he flew her over some of their favorite places (beaches, park, etc.). After that they flew over a familiar pasture, and he jokingly said, "Let's try landing on that." Rachel thought he was nuts. He flew over the field once, signaling the photographer and videographer to take their positions. The second time around he landed on an airstrip that he recently mowed. He taxied near the tree line, and they got out and began walking around. Not far into the walk, Rachel spotted an upright piano that Micah had placed in the middle of the pasture. He led her over to it, sat her down, and began playing her favorite song, The Scientist, by Coldplay. This song had been revised with words written specifically for Rachel. After playing and singing to her, Micah got on his knee, said some special words, and asked her to marry him. SHE SAID YES!!!
Attached are some photos of the proposal day.
Thank you very much!

Best for Bride made my dress shopping very easy and fun. I had awful experiences at other places and they were all super nice and helpful and rectified it all. They did an awesome job.
Thank you very much.
You are welcome.

We came in today because I'm gonna panic because I'm gonna marry in two weeks and I absolutely hated my dress so I just mentioned a few things what I wanted and she pulled, the first dress that she pulled I put on and I loved it fits in and out in and out in literally in 25 minutes steaming it all. Yeah
Awesome, thank you ladies.
So ladies please tell me your experience at Best for Bride?
Unique. We came here after quite a disaster. We have been going through a lot. The wedding has been the last thing on our plate, so we were behind and we came here kind of ... and we managed to find my dress in the first hour that I love and it felt like being on an action show Say Yes to the Dress. Yeah, yeah that's wonderful yeah and it's really nice to have the ladies be there with you, compliment you, trying to find exactly what you need, they know what they are doing and that is just a really great experience. When I get married I definitely coming back here and that's for sure. We definitely coming back. And like mom said, we were going through a lot ... and this is one of those days where everything is so perfect. We came the day before and now tried it on and it fits you so gorgeously. Come here and you'll get your dress and you'll have the Best Experience. The ladies are Amazing. And the prices are good.
Thank you so much for your help with my bridesmaids dresses. The assistance was brilliant (hence why I came to you to buy the dresses and did not buy them from Scotland where we live!) I was always kept up to date on the progress of the dresses as well as being given the opportunity to twice send the dresses back and order other sizes. My bridesmaids looked wonderful and everyone commented how lovely their dresses were.
I would recommend using your company to all of my friends in the future. Best of luck for the future and please find pictures attached.
I want to thank everyone from Best for Bride who helped me during the hectic planning of my wedding. Everything went off perfectly, and a lot of it had to do with the help of everyone there.
I was worried about getting decor done at an affordable price, but when roaming around on the BFB website, I saw that it was offered. I showed up to the church and was amazed with the aisle drapery! Then showing up at the reception and seeing the head table - it was perfect. Thank you so much.
A special thank you to a couple of ladies:
Melloney - Thank you for being so supportive and assuring me that my dress would be perfect for the wedding. Thanks for not thinking I was a crazy lady when I bawled my eyes out in the change room!
Larissa - You're amazing. I would have been a wreck if I had not had you to help me with all of my dress woes. I've sent you another note of thanks. I hope that you can help me with the bridesmaid dress I will need in September 2011.
Again, thank you to everyone at Best for Bride. I'm sending a couple of pictures from my wedding on October 2, 2010.
I wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful dress I purchased from you this past summer from the Etobicoke store! Everyone who assisted me with my dress were extremely kind and helpful, especially the seamstress who helped me with my fitting! I am so glad that I found your website online, and I recommend you to everyone! I just wanted to share some photos from my special day, which took place August 7th 2009 in Victoria BC, and also from my trash the dress sesh that took place the following day (thats right! I got to wear my dress twice!) My dress was from the Mori Lee collection, style 6305.
Thank you all again,
