The Deal of a Lifetime- Eleanor Eldredge & Adam Mills Engaged on QVC!

Eleanor & I were engaged on QVC on February 24th 2012. Here's how it all happened ...

From our very first date two and a half years ago when I walked in her house and she had QVC on in the background, it didn't take long for me to realize how much she was infatuated with the shopping channel.

Fast forward to today, if you were to ever walk in our front door you would see the television on ESPN or QVC depending on who had control of the remote. I literally fall asleep to QVC on in the background each and every night. Once I started thinking of proposing to Eleanor, I realized I wanted it to be original and that is when I thought how meaningful it would be if I did something involving QVC.

In November of last year I reached out to QVC with my idea of being a guest host and popping the question on live television. They responded and informed me it was out of there means to pull it off and wasn't going to be possible.

Inspired by my favorite quote by Winston Churchill, "never, never, never give up" I didn't give up ...

I instead found the contact information for Larry Denney, QVC manager of studio and tours. He was excited about Eleanor's infatuation with QVC and loved my proposal idea. He jumped right on board, rounded up a group at QVC to help in the planning process and that's when my crazy thought came to life.

Idea after idea and months and months of planning the QVC proposal was finally set. The hard part was keeping it a surprise, which meant getting Eleanor to the QVC studios in West Chester, Pennsylvania without her suspecting a thing. For our two year anniversary I decided to give Eleanor a QVC a goody package which included two all access VIP tour tickets. She was thrilled, did not have a clue and we were off on a weekend I knew we'd never forget.

Eleanor and I arrived at the QVC studios both excited and nervous, for obviously very different reasons. With ring in pocket I was ready to go. We took the studio tour, seeing everything from production to a live taping. While on our tour a producer approached and asked if we would take part in a "Customer Appreciation Video". How could the biggest fan not want to talk all things QVC? She agreed and we were headed to a studio for the big moment. Micked up and cameras rolling Eleanor gushed about her fascination with the shopping network. After several questions from the prouder it was finally my time to ask the most important question of all. With her hand in mine I popped down on one knee, took her breath away, pulled out the ring and she said yes!

Eleanor was not the only person surprised that day. QVC arranged to have her favorite host, David Venable, come out with a cake and a bottle of champagne to toast the special occasion. With us both shocked and elated we celebrated a moment that was truly unbelievable.

The proposal was perfect. She was beyond surprised and I was more than thrilled to ask the woman of my dreams to be mine forever.

Our toes still have not reached the ground. We can't wait for the many more celebrations to come ...

Hi Best for Bride team,

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.
Sylvia Nazarethian
