Nadia and Adrian - Magical, Spontaneous and well thought out proposal

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2015

The engagement happened on October 7th, 2014. That night, Adrian told Nadia that they will be going to Adrian's sisters house for dinner. It was a regular rainy Tuesday night, so Nadia had no idea that a proposal awaited. On the way to "the sisters house", Adrian told Nadia we have to stop by Nadia's brother to pick up something for Adrian's grandfather. As we got to Nadia's brothers house, Nadia runs to the front door as it was pouring rain. Adrian yelled at Nadia saying, we have to go the back. Nadia was like "why!, it's pouring what are we going to do in the backyard". Adrian stated "Your brother is cooking curry". For some reason, Nadia believed it. They ran to the backyard in the pouring rain, and as we walked into the back, Nadia see a bunch of Mason jars with LED lights set up under a gazebo. All of a sudden, the song "Just you and I" by Ricky Blaze ( starts playing in the background. Nadia walks towards to the table and looks at Adrian all puzzled. Nadia then looks off into the kitchen through the doors to see all of her friends, brother, sister in law and nephew gazing through the doors with big smiles on their faces; Nadia knew a proposal was happening. Adrian told Nadia to open each jar and read the messages on the back of the laminated pictures. There were 8 jars. Nadia opened them and each picture had a message that was written by Adrian talking about since the first time they met. The final picture was a picture of a restaurant that Adrian took Nadia's parents, brother, sister-in-law and nephew to ask for their blessings to ask for Nadia's hand in marriage.

After all the messages were read from each picture, Adrian then had a few words to tell Nadia. Of course, being so tech savy, Adrian read the message off of his iPhone. One statement that stood out of them all, is that Adrian believed that him and Nadia have spent past lives together. Adrian then got on one knee and asked Nadia to be his wife. After moments of tears and laughter, Nadia and Adrian went into the house to meet everyone and get lots of hugs. Adrian set up a photographer and videographer to capture the whole thing. It was amazing. As we are all sitting in the kitchen, some of the friends suggested for us to go grab a bite to eat. Everyone agreed. We all headed to Waterfront Bistro in Pickering. As Nadia is walking into the restaurant, a crowd of family and friends yelled surprise! Adrian had planned a PART TWO to the engagement. He proposed and planned a get together with everyone to share in our auspicious occasion all in one night. Nadia was in shock as she saw her parents, Adrian's parents, all of their cousins and friends waiting to celebrate in their Engagement at the restaurant. All night, Nadia did not say much (and Nadia is definitely a talker). She was in shock all night, trying to comprehend what had just happened. Adrian did a marvelous planning a beautiful proposal.

After the proposal, Adrian and Nadia sat down and chatted. Adrian then confessed how long the proposal had been in the works. Adrian had asked a few of Nadia's friends to help him plan it. Adrian and Nadia's friends went searching for the perfect place and props to include in the proposal. Adrian and the friends spent a few nights preparing for the engagement. Initially, Adrian wanted to have the proposal at a secluded area at the beach, but due to the weather, he was not able to do it there.

At the end of it all, it turned out to be a magical, spontaneous and well thought out proposal. Nadia could not have wanted any more than that. Hopefully our story will inspire others.

Hello Best for Brides,

Thank you so much for the help in selecting and altering my wedding dress. Our wedding was held in Tuscany, Italy this past September with the entire event being held outside. It was a dream wedding.
My dress was absolute beautiful thanks to all the help from Larissa who spent time with me and suggesting the dress I looked the best in. She made me feel very comfortable and had the girls dresses altered beautifully as well as my own.

Thanks so much for making our day feel like a make believe fairy tale.

Hi Katarina,

Just thought you would like to see pictures of the dresses that you altered. The dresses were perfect. You can see Rebecca's maid of honour dress along with the other bridesmaids. You can also see what my daughter Candice's wedding dress looked like.

The wedding was on August 14th and it was a most beautiful day.

Thank you so much for your wonderful work. You made us look so good. In fact one of my coworkers wants to buy the same dress that I had.

I will refer people to Best for Bride and to you.

Many thanks
Janet Kamienik


Good Evening Olga,

I wanted to send you some photos from the wedding 3 weeks ago. We had a fun, relaxed day and I wasn't the only one that LOVED my dress, I received many compliments. My mother mentioned that there were a few ladies who just loved, loved it. Thank you for your help with getting the dress sooner then I expected and you promised me, what a stress relief to have it in hand. And the fabric that you provided that matched my dress made a beautiful dress for my flower girl.

Thank you again for all your help, I truly appreciate it!

Miranda Grey had a Phenomenal Experience

So Miranda, tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
It's been phenomenal. I have come in. I did not really have much an idea of what I wanted. The girls were able to pick off the shelves, kind of twick what my preferences were and tell me what body shape was going to work best for me.
In general, they were just totally patient with me. The whole experience was phenomenal and I cannot wait to come back and be fitted for my dress. Wonderful, thank you so much.
