Cold winter night. Blind double date. Dave & Busters. Who would have thought that this is where I would meet my future husband. I was with my girlfriend and her boyfriend and after much stalking on Facebook Drew finally got my friend to bring me out on this day in 2008. I think what created the connection was the bold step I took and walked right up to him, shook his hand and said Hi, I'm Diana (with a smile J). What can I say, it was love after that.
Four years later we plan a trip to Florida where we could get away for a few days. He said that he got this great deal on Groupon where we could ride in a hot air balloon- Sure! It's on my bucket list anyway! Nevertheless I had to wake up at 4 a.m. to get to Tampa for the sunrise flight. We're on the balloon and I cannot even describe the peaceful feeling that overcomes one when you are just floating over morning fog watching the trees and lakes sparkle. Drew starts out by saying, "where does this rank amongst all the things we've done together?". I reply, "pretty up there..." all while wondering why is he getting so serious in front of Fred, our pilot. That was Drew's first attempt. He points to my left, "look over there", I say "yes a swamp?". Fred delightfully points out, "it's the heart shaped lake" and by now I see it. Poor Drew made his second attempt at his speech, but I started to interview Fred about his family life etc. We keep sailing across and he tries again but Fred uses the gas burner and blocks all sound. Finally Drew, a little frustrated turns and asks Fred, "could you give me a minute without the fire!" Fred replies, "sure, but if we go down..." From there he was down on one knee and he finally got to say his entire speech. We land and he finishes off by telling me about the 5 star dinner reservations that he made for that evening. Dinner was exquisite but it didn't end there. We travelled to Miami and I found 18 long stemmed red roses (he's never given me RED roses before) waiting in my room for me. To top it off he also booked a massage for me at the luxurious hotel spa-
If I didn't have this rock on my finger I would think it was just a dream!

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.
Thanks Denise and everyone from Best for Brides and you have made experience with putting together a wedding in literally four months, AMAZING, EASY
I don't even know what to say I am just SO GRATEFUL that you had the patience to help me to get through this SO THANK YOU.
Attached are the pictures of me wearing the dress in the 2010 Miss World Canada Regional pageant.
I was chosen as one of the 10 girls to represent Ontario in the National pageant that took place in Vancouver.
It was a great experience and your dress made it even better!
All the best and I hope to work with you again someday.
I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.
Thank you again, it really meant a lot.
