After 5 years and a 5-mile hike, Bryan and Jen are now engaged!!!

Bryan told Jen that the two of them were going on a trip together and that the destination would remain a surprise until they arrived there. They never go on trips without Daylan so Jen had no idea what to expect. While driving to the destination, every sign that they seen, Jen asked if it was the place. Every time the answer was no.



Soon, it became apparent that they were in the mountains.

Jen had never experienced the mountains before so she knew this trip was very carefully planned out by Bryan. Of course, anyone that knows Bryan knows that he will always exceed your expectations. He always goes above and beyond. This trip was no different. They were in Tennessee, in the middle of the Smoky Mountains to be exact. Finally, they come across a road that winded up into the mountains. Every turn was higher than you'd ever expect, as if you were driving straight into heaven. At the top of "heaven" was our own dream cabin overlooking a fantastic view. Included are pictures of the cabin and the view since words won't do it justice.

The next day Bryan said that they would get up early to go to Cade's Cove and hike the trails.

During our time in Cade's Cove Bryan decided to pick a trail to hike even though it was raining - Abrams Falls. There and back makes this a rough 5-mile hike. Unfortunately, since it rained that morning, the trail was very muddy and made for a great adventure. After getting soaked, hiking the 5-mile trail didn't seem so bad actually. They took many pictures along the way.

Then, once they arrived at the end of the trail, there was a waterfall, a.k.a. Abram's Falls. It was beautiful. Bryan had surprised Jen since she didn't even know it was there.

Bryan had careful scoped around for someone to grab his camcorder to record them and then took Jen over by the waterfall and bent down on one knee. He then said something that was probably really special, but Jen really couldn't hear anything at that time. She was just in awe of the moment. Bryan reached for the ring from his pocket and then opened it up for Jen to see. He then tried nervously to take the ring out of the box. As he attempted to do this, the ring box escaped his grip and fell into the rushing water. Jen about jumped into the water to get the ring (even though she can't swim). Bryan held her back as she attempted to do so. Thankfully, Bryan was able to recover the ring box after getting almost in the water. He held it up to get the ring out of the box and that's when they noticed that the ring was no longer there. Jen freaked out and without thinking about being recorded, yelled Oh &*^*! Jen couldn't stop thinking about how perfect Bryan would have wanted this moment to be and because of this, he is going to be so unhappy. She thought to herself, "Will he even try this again? Or, will he just give up and we'll never end up married?" "Is this a bad omen?" Then, Bryan looked at me with the cutest grin ever and started to pull the real ring box out of his other pocket. Jen slapped him and admittedly, said "You &^&*()*" (again, forgetting about the camcorder). Once Jen finally stopped laughing, she said "Of course I'll marry you, silly goose". As they began to walk away, a huge applause began to form. Apparently, during this whole time, a crowd had formed. Everyone was yelling "Congratulations!". Jen couldn't stop laughing the whole way back....and not just the whole way back on the trail...the whole way home too. Even now today, Bryan hears Jen just randomly laugh and he knows why!

The whole engagement was a surprise, but knowing Bryan, Jen knew that she would be in for a laugh when he proposed. She knew he would do it in his own special Bryan-way and he did not disappoint her.

Oh, by the way, I did mention that Bryan had someone else record the whole thing right? Of course he did, because he is always such a planner. This video is included, but I'm warning you, you are going to laugh so hard you'll cry!!! Here is the video.

Hi there,

Sorry I haven't got back to you guys sooner. Thank you so much for the amazing help at the store I definitely found the best dress at your store and it looked gorgeous! I was also impressed because many other stores that we visited, that had higher price points, provided us with less than acceptable service. So I was glad we visited you at Best for Brides!?

Thanks again Max and Kayla Kueper

When I was looking for the bridal gown, Best for Bride Toronto was the first salon I walked in. The first - and the only one.

I think I tried on over dozen of gowns, and Alla was helping me with my fitting and the little details.

Consultants were patient and helpful, the fittings went great, and it was easy to make appointments that fitted my schedule.
My dress was amazing and reasonably priced.

Thank you so much for helping make my wedding the best day of my life!
Yulia

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.

Amanda Scrivanich - liked Big Beautiful Store and No Pressure

So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
When I walked in they were very welcoming and greeting and it is so beautiful and big store and able to go and take a look at all the dresses and styles and go and actually pick some out ourselves that we would like to try on instead of having consultant just pick ones for you. And very comfortable, very big, open spaces, able to look and try different things. And plenty of time, no pressure, a lot of time to take a look around, try on all different dresses that I wanted to. Everything was great and really wonderful.
And we FOUND THE DRESS.
Yeah, we found the dress.

Hi my name is Lise Renaud. I just have a little story to tell. I came here a couple weeks ago looking for a a wedding dress for my future daughter in law who lives up north in a remote area and she doesn't have access to any stores so I as a good future mother in law decided to come and I came and this when ... I came into this store this wonderful young lady named Taylor was here and she had the biggest smile She said: "May I help you" and I told her the predicament ... future daughter in law, pregnant, getting marrying in June, has a limited budget and she found the most beautiful dress because I had the picture of my future daughter in law was interested in and it was so close to this dress so Taylor went on to the computer and phoned out if it comes in white or beige she did, it did, she told me: "Yes we would have it on time". She said me how we should have her measured and I would come in the next day to order it and I did. And I just came today to say thank you to Taylor cause were so happy.
