To the man that makes me smile every day:

After finishing my degrees at the University of Great Falls, in Great Falls, Montana, i had to move back home to Canada. I was completely depressed, because for the first time in my life, i really felt like i had found a home in Montana. I had the best life, the best school, the best friends, and I have never felt happier. So the ten hour drive home was filled with memories, sadness and tears.

After I had moved home, i was hired at our local Correctional Facility as a Correctional Officer. During our second week of training at the facility, i remember walking in one morning, looking up at the tiers as all the employees were scoping us out, and out of all the employees, these beautiful baby blue eyes caught my eye!!! He had the most amazing smile and dimples that went from ear to ear. I had this feeling rush right through me. I had no idea who he was, whether he was single or not, or what he was like; i instantly felt drawn to him. I could not stop thinking about it. So i decided to make it my mission to cross paths with him at one point or another.

That could not have come any easier! During our shadow shifts, i was placed on the one unit i asked to be kept off of and sure enough, he was the guard! I was so excited, so nervous, my stomach filled with butterflies.... but i couldn't be happier. Sadly, i was only to spend four hours with him but was determined to make the best of it.

As it turned out, we had a lot in common, and growing up, crossed each others path several times, but for one reason or another, never ended up meeting each other. He told me how he was a wrestler, and our common ground was instant!!! In Great Falls, wrestling is a major sport, and i ended up becoming friends with the wrestlers, and thats the group i always hung out with. Surprisingly, i knew my own share to keep up to him! It was interesting to see, but i was getting the sense that he was very nervous around me, and even a little flirty! I was EXCITED!! I could not stop staring at his gorgeous blue eyes, his perfect teeth and smile, and i found his voice to be extremely soothing. I could have listened to him talk for hours!! He asked me a lot of questions, made sure to keep the conversation going. At last... I knew what i wanted.

Shortly after, we crossed each others path at shift change, and he asked me if i would be interested in going out with him and a few guys from work for drinks. Wish it would have been that night!!! The wait was aweful. The night before the drinks, he ran into me at work and asked me if i was coming for sure. He informed he would call me, but i had to point out the obviuos- he did not have my number! I think i caught him off guard, because he hesistated and stuttered for a minute, but said he would find a way to get it, not to worry. Taking a step, i just looked at him and said, "or i could just give it to you now." Might I add, that after my shift with him, i ran home to search for him on Facebook, and thankfully, it said he was single. It was FATE.

We ended up going out and had a great time. He got a little intoxicated, but agreed to come to a wedding with me that weekend, and even managed to kiss me while falling on me. Our relationship started off a little rocky. We had both come out of serious relationships just before we met, and we each were being cautious.

One night, i went for drinks with friends, and i kept texting him in hopes of meeting up with him. He had different plans; did he ever!! I ended up going to a different restaurant for drinks, and sure enough, he walked in with another girl! I was crushed... i could literally feel my heart breaking and when i saw him, i couldn't even breathe for a minute. We were never "officially" dating, and it wasn't really a big deal, but the sight of seeing him with a different girl, when i instantly had such strong feelings towards him, was the worst heartbreak i have ever had. No word of a lie. Even through the weeks before, every time i saw his name on my phone, or saw him at work, my breath was taken away, i had butterflies, i was shaky, felt like throwing up, but the rush was excilirating. I needed more. He became my drug... my addiction. Sadly, as with any addiction, the withdrawal was devastating.

After watching him with another girl for close to an hour, i finally called him over. He was stuttering, shaking, scared, and kept telling me how we needed to talk. I didn't understand what we needed to talk about. I wasn't sure i could ever talk to him. I wanted to run in his arms, and feel that orgasmic rush of comfort and true happiness run through my body. I wanted him to kiss me, so i could feel the rush of his gentle kiss race through my bloodstream but instead, he walked away, left with the girl, and left me behind with a broken heart.

It wasn't until a few weeks later, that we casually started talking again, because of rumors that i was hearing. He was working a night shift and we had agreed to meet after his shift and talk. Unfortunately, he was forced to stay for a day shift, and again, fate was against us. Few days later, we finally managed to meet, and although i was in high hopes of what he was going to say, my hopes were let down. He explained what had happened, why it happened, and ended it with the "not ready for a relationship" speech. I was crushed, but i couldn't stop. I tried, but the connection was too strong. We agreed to stay friends, and we kept in touch, and over the weeks it turned into a relationship. Everything was perfect. Two years later, he drove me to Great Falls, took me to the campus, and right infront of the chapel, got down on one knee and proposed to me in hungarian ( I was born in Hungary and was seven years old when i moved to Canada). At first, i didn't know what he was saying, but after a minute it registered. I was so excited. Finally, all my dreams had come true. We will be celebrating our three year anniversary in august and getting married in the fall. Our relationship is just like everyone's. We have our bumps, but we always talk about our differences, and respect each other enough to change if necessary. I have never had a more relationship where i have such a strong connection to someone before. I take marriage seriously, and would never marry a man unless i knew for sure. Although we have some things to work out, I cannot imagine my life with any other man. I can only ask God to allow me to spend the rest of my life with him, and ask him to keep him with me. As he gets closer to his policing careers, the fears are always within me. I cannot imagine a single day without his gorgeous smile and soothing baby blues! He is definitely my match, my soul-mate and the man i will grow old with!!

Hello Olga,

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.

Thanks again,

Hi Best for Bride,

Thanks for giving me the chance to offer my feedback on my experience at Best for Bride. I have to say it was a great experience. While I can't remember names, everyone there was so helpful and took their time with me so I didn't feel rushed or pressured. I bought my dress off the rack and you had a fantastic selection at really great prices. I had a tough time choosing but in the end, got the perfect dress. Your seamstress was amazing and efficient and the dress fit perfectly after she was done with it. I would definitely recommend Best for Bride to my friends and family. I've attached a picture here. Thanks for all your help!

Hello,

My experience with Best for Bride was quite positive over all. I found employees to be quite friendly. I found the service fast and efficient, both when choosing the dress and when doing alterations. I was extremely satisfied with the dress that I bought. Last, but not least, your prices can't be beat!
I've attached a photo from our wedding day that shows off most of the dress. I hope you'll like it.

Thanks and take care : )
Carla
