Our proposal may not have been your typical down on one knee event, but it was completely us and even a little comical.
Well I guess it starts when Dustin asked My dads permission when we had gone to visit them (easter 2009) he knew he wouldn't get another chance to do it in person for quite some time. Of course i had no idea that this went on and Dust still hadn't found a ring that he liked and wanted to go hiking up in the mountains (we love hiking) and it was cold so he was also waiting for the weather to warm up.
The weather finally warmed up and Dust decided to take me and Xavier (our two year old at the time) to Lake louise. the problem was that by the time the weather had warmed up I was now about 4 months pregnant with our second little one. Lake louise has a fairly easy hike around the lake. When we got to lake louise it was busy, like crazy busy, there were tons of people even on the trail. so we didn't have even a minute where there wasn't someone around. we made it about 30 minutes down the trail before I had to go to the bathroom. I said "Dust we have to turn around i gotta pee" and he was like "why don't we keep going just a little bit" "cause i have to pee!" i said he then tried to convince me to go in the woods to which i said "Oh ya with all of theses people around! there's a perfectly good bathroom 30 minutes down the trail and thats where i'm going!" i didn't understand why he was so upset about this, the rest of the day he was just grumpy. So when we were on our way home and Dust announced that we were going hiking again tomorrow at heart creek i said that that sounded awesome.
Heart creek is a hike we do allot and it's a pretty easy trail that we usually do, so when i woke up and my feet were a bit swollen I didn't think anything of putting my flip flops on it was an easy walk and they'd be comfy. when we got there Dust informed us that he had decided that we weren't going on our regular trail that we were gonna go up the scramble going up the mountain instead. This trail was steep, i mean really steep it was about an 80 degree angle going straight up the mountain. it was so steep that Xavier on all fours trying to climb up was just sliding down. Dust ended up having to cary him.
We finally made it to a place that kind of leveled off a bit and i just collapsed. i mean sprawled on the ground out of breath collapsed (keep in mind that i was 4 months pregnant and in flip flops) i said "Dust i need water!" (he also had the back pack) Dustin knelt down in front on me with the back pack in front of him, but we were still kind of on a slope so i didn't think anything of him kneeling, and he started going on about how much he loved me i finally cut him off and said "Dust i love you too but i really need some water!" he ignored me and kept going about how there's no one he would rather have up a mountain with him then me and Xavier "awww that sweet can i have some water now please!" i replied a little annoyed. Dust ignores me again and keeps going about he couldn't imagine his life with out us, Me, not catching on at all and annoyed that he was ignoring me, cuts him off and says "that really nice Dust now can i have some freaking water!!" and he yelled "thats why i'm trying to ask you to marry me!!" "are you joking?" i said "cause if your joking i'm gonna knock you back down this mountain!" "i'm not joking" Dust said "Look" and he pulled the ring out of the bag that was in front of him. Well that shut me up lol and you know i dont think i did get my drink of water. :D

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.
Jordan and I were married on October 11 2009. When he first saw me in my dress, he cried - it must have been all the emotion AND the stunning dress!!! I am so happy to have purchased my wedding dress at Best for Bride because it was an enjoyable process and the result was excellent. I did not feel the need to shop around to other stores because I knew immediately you had a great selection, fair prices and knowledgeable and friendly service. Your staff were helpful as I tried on dress after dress and the final alterations were a perfect fit. Now I am just looking for another occasion to wear this gorgeous dress!
My wife and I would like to say a big thank you and our greatest appreciation for all your assistance and help of getting one of the most important items on the wedding planer list - Wedding Dress.
Everything: finding, ordering, delivering, fitting and alterations were done promptly and with a lot of support from the staff. Professionalism and confidence of the employees assured me and specially my fiancé that all will be just fine.
At the end the service and the dress exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend "Best For Bride" to future brides and grooms.
Once again I want to state my appreciation for the service and special thanks to Olga.

I had a really positive experience at Best for Bride. We have been to over 10 different bridal shops and this was the one and this was the best one so far. We were ignored in other stores and then some places were to high then the other ones and this one just worked perfectly. We got her bridal gown (fantastic). We got her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses. Fabulous. Thank you ladies.
