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,

I loved both of my visits to your store. Denise & Donna were wonderful and I found their comments on the dresses very helpful. The atmosphere at the store is very easy going and not rushed like the big city stores where you have your time slot and move on.... I also love the "walk down the aisle" experience you definitely get to see your dress from every view point.

Thanks for the great experience!!

Cheers,
Brian and Jess Cull

Good morning,

I bought two "mother of the groom" dresses from Denise at Best for Bride in Barrie. The first wedding was on April 29, 2011. I have attached a picture showing the mother of the groom dress. The next wedding is June 25 - I will send the picture after that. The bride wore a dress that was made by a friend. I would like to thank Denise for a wonderful experience I had.

Thanks again!
Lynn Morton

Dear Olga,
I would like to thank you for your kindness and the outstanding service I received at your store. Having been at several other bridal stores, none of them can compare with the high quality of customer service I received from you. You did a fantastic job with everything! My bridal gown was just what I had pictured all along; it fitted like a glove and was truly stunning. My Wedding Day will always be memorable and cherished and I am so pleased I purchased the bridal gown for my destination wedding in Mexico from you. We have attached our photo to show you how much we appreciate making it so special. Thanks again for all your hard work! I would highly recommend your bridal store to anyone.


Best Regards,
Angela and Ryan

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.
