Jasmine and Eric - High School Sweethearts Engagement Proposal

Eric and I had known each other since elementary school and I had always had a crush on him but never had the courage to talk to him. We always stood next to each other when the teachers made us line up in alphabetical order since our last names start with the same 2 letters and I always thought "yes! I get to stand next to that cute boy!" It wasn't until sophomore year in High school that he finally had the courage to talk to me! We were that obnoxious couple that kissed in the hallway and met each other during every passing period and spent all of our time together. We graduated in 2012 and our last names were still the closest in alphabetical order so we got to sit next to each other during graduation!

After high school we both started working and just couldn't stand to be away from each other for an entire day since we were so used to being together for 8 hours a day at school so we decided to move in together. I feel like every day we get closer and closer I truly consider him my best friend and the love of my life!

Every year for our anniversary (which is the day after Christmas) we go to Disneyland because we are both Disney freaks! This year was our 5 year anniversary so we planned an amazing Disneyland trip and went all out to make it the best anniversary trip ever! He was dropping hints about proposing but he is also a joker so I didn't know whether or not to take him seriously.

It was Christmas Eve and I had gotten off work early since I still had so much to do to prep for our trip! I still had to do laundry, clean the house, pack our clothes, and wrap presents all before going to my mom's house in a few hours when he tells me him and his friends want to go to the beach. Why would him and his friends want to go to the beach on Christmas Eve? Why right now when we have so much to do? I was a little irritated when we drove to the beach to meet up with his friends with so much at home to do but I put a smile on my face because I was just happy to be with him. I mean, until we got there and it was 35 degrees and extreme overcast! I asked what beach we were going to and he said "Sunset cliffs" which is a beach we visit frequently so I thought okay it's not that far then I realized that going to sunset cliffs meant that we have to climb down the rock with the rope (anyone who has been to sunset cliffs knows exactly what I am talking about) and I am wearing old flip flops and It's just too cold for that crap! So I starting saying "I'll just stay in the car or take the long way I'm wearing way too many layers to climb down that stupid rock!" I could tell he was a little upset but assured me we wouldn't go down the rock.

When we got there it was absolutely freezing. At least for a Californian! So here I am 3 layers of clothes old flip flops, messy bun, and no makeup and Eric asks "so where do you want to go?" a little irritated I say "well aren't we meeting your friends here where are they?" and he replied "they're not coming". So why are we here??

For the first time in forever this beach was almost empty so we walked to the edge of the cliff looking at the water where we talked about the first time we kissed at the school lunch tables and when he first told me he loved me. We talked about the future and he said he wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world. We always talk to each other like this so I didn't think anything of it. Then the sunset broke through the overcast for the first time all day. That's when he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him! I couldn't believe it I was at a loss of words I'm not even sure if I really said yes! The ring was the most beautiful ring I had ever seen and it even came with a box that had a light in it that made it sparkle like you wouldn't believe!

I've never cried happy tears in my life but that day I cried like a baby!

He definitely took me by surprise!

I still can't believe that this amazing man wants to be with me for the rest of his life. I don't know how I will ever get used to that.

So far we plan on getting married on May 18th 2018 in a garden in San Diego.

There is no one else I would rather spend the rest of my life with then the man of my dreams, my High School sweetheart!

Dear Olga,
I would like to thank you for your kindness and the outstanding service I received at your store. Having been at several other bridal stores, none of them can compare with the high quality of customer service I received from you. You did a fantastic job with everything! My bridal gown was just what I had pictured all along; it fitted like a glove and was truly stunning. My Wedding Day will always be memorable and cherished and I am so pleased I purchased the bridal gown for my destination wedding in Mexico from you. We have attached our photo to show you how much we appreciate making it so special. Thanks again for all your hard work! I would highly recommend your bridal store to anyone.


Best Regards,
Angela and Ryan

Cindy Brown Found Bridesmaid Dresses and Wedding Gown

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
