Jenn and Cliff Proposal Story - A Trip to The Light

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2014



Sunday March 10th, 2013, Cliff took Jenn on an adventure that she would never soon forget. For two weeks Cliff had been planning his proposal to Jenn, with the help of his sister, Emma, his brother-in-law, Troy, and his 2 yr 9 mo old nephew, Carter. After initial proposal plans went awry, Cliff knew this was his opportunity to make it magical- and he did.
Jenn felt surprisingly languid on Sunday morning. She seemed tired and drained. Little did she know that as she slept soundly during a mid-morning nap, gears were in motion that would change her life forever. Troy was at Heber Downs Conservation Area setting up a Narnia-esque lamp post and setting up hidden cameras that would capture the moment as it happened. Cliff secretly gave the go to Emma, who then called and said that she was taking Carter for a walk at Heber Downs, and asked if Cliff and Jenn would like to join them. Knowing that Jenn has a ridiculous soft spot for Carter, everyone knew no matter how low Jenn was feeling, she would not refuse.
I feel it important to add at this point that Jenn had been completely wretched throughout that week. She knew the ring was coming and felt overwhelmed by anticipation. In trying to figure out Cliff's plans, she nearly drove herself mad, yet failed to point out explicit clues that dangled right in front of her face.
While getting ready for her walk, Jenn threw on a pair of yoga pants and runners. Cliff laughed at her wearing yoga pants and suggested that maybe she wear something else. Jenn scoffed it off, "We're just going for a walk in the woods!" she scolded. Finally, they met Emma and Carter at Heber Downs who had been waiting there for 20 minutes prior. Thank goodness for Finding Nemo on DVD.
As the four walked down the path surrounded by towering bare trees and thick white snow, Jenn still had no idea what was in store for her as she nervously sipped her Tim Hortons coffee and made sure her puppy, Toffee, didn't trip anyone with her leash. "I won a free coffee!" Cliff exclaimed, as he rolled up the rim on his cup. "You're so lucky! I never win anything!" said Jenn, still walking.
Finally, Emma, Carter, Cliff and Jenn approached a little bridge with running water beneath it. Hidden atop a small snow covered hill stood a lamp post. "Look over there!"said Cliff, "Doesn't it look like Narnia?" Jenn looked up at the lamp post and said, "yeah, that's cool!" and continued toward the bridge. Cliff urged her to climb up the hill for a closer look at the lamp. Hesitantly, Jenn climbed up and suggested that mayhaps she steal the lamp post as it would be perfect to have as part of her Narnia themed wedding.
Suddenly, Cliff dropped to one knee. Stunned, Jenn started laughing hysterically. "Not here! Now? Not here!" she said as she tried to hide her face behind the lamp post. She spotted Troy hidden in the trees. She knew this was the moment but for some reason could not compose herself to hear a word her future fiance was saying.
Jenn heard something about "happy" and "life's adventures" and "will you marry me". Cliff pulled out the ring. It was perfect! It glistened in the shaded sunlight that was peaking through the barren trees looking down on them.
They were engaged!
After telling Emma and Troy how sneaky they were and that they were a family of ninjas, Jenn felt ecstatic to be gaining a sister, a brother, and a nephew. Before walking back, Jenn rolled up her rim from her coffee cup, she won a free coffee too!
What a perfectly Canadian proposal story! Snow, ice, and two winning coffees from TIm Hortons!
Cliff and Jenn can't wait to spend the rest of their lives with each other and combine their two loving families as one.

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

Dear Olga and the Best for Bride Team,

Thank you for the dream wedding dress.

I found here great selection of wedding dresses at most reasonable prices. You do not need to see another store. Shopping at BfB is a wonderful experience, and be prepared to spend here close to three hours trying on those wonderful dresses. Bring in your bridesmaids and the whole extended family to make this experience even more pleasurable and festive (just like in those shows on TV). Lucy was my shopping associate helping me to find THE RIGHT DRESS. You can say that: "I love Lucy". She is a good listener and she always brings the exact dress that I wanted to try on next. It certainly seems that she knows the whole inventory by heart. She is brutally honest with her opinions which are of great help. You can trust her point of view. The major assets of this store are: Lucy, endless inventory of dresses, reasonable prices, and the overall customer service. I found the dream dress that fits for the occasion of a lifetime.

Thank you.

Elena P.

Samantha Gumbrell - Renting Wedding Dress on a very fixed budget

Tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
OK. My name is Sam and I came to Best for Bride very very nervous and anxious and as soon as I walked in the door Denise and Donna were so helpful and they said that I was not going to leave this place without finding the dress of my dreams and they were absolutely correct. I think it was the seventh dress that I tried on and I knew right away that is was the dress that I was going to wear for my special date and they gave me the option for rental because I was on a very fixed budget and the rental was great because it was the dress that I wanted and I knew that I could afford it. And so I was very very happy.

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".
