Tammie and Brandon - Proposal On A Mountain

You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2016

Brandon and I met our freshman year of college. We became quick friends and had many adventures together. Eventually he convinced me that we were good for each other and started to date in October of 2012. We had been dating just over two years when he decided to propose. Our relationship has never been ordinary. Since the beginning we have gone through crazy things together. One of the key things in our relationship has always been adventuring together and doing things one can only dream of, no matter the risks. Needless to say, this landed us in some pretty interesting situations. But more importantly, it's what inspired his way of proposing to me.

Our university requires that we take a three week trip abroad to a country of our choosing. Brandon and I both chose Cambodia, an amazing and beautiful country. On one of the last days of our trip we visited Angkor Wat, and after went to Bakheng Mountain, a mountain infamous for the view of the sunset at the top. We had the chance to ride an elephant to the top, and of course with elephants being one of my favorite animals and riding one being on my bucket list, there was no way we were going to pass up the opportunity. Brandon was acting really nervous right before the ride, and I honestly had no idea why. This wasn't something he would get nervous about, but rather instead be pretty psyched for. We climbed on the elephant and started riding. It. Was. Incredible. Looking down at the edge of the mountain right next to us was terrifying, but looking up at the beauty of the nature surrounding us and being together made it amazing. Right before we got to the top Brandon looked at me and explained to me how much he loved and cared for me and then proposed. I said yes, soon as I found my voice after being speechless and nearly in tears. I could not have imagined a better proposal than riding an elephant up a mountain in Southeast Asia with my best friend, co-adventurer, and now, fiance.

When we arrived at the top of the mountain we found our professor there, camera in hand, recording our arrival. Brandon and I celebrated later, after returning to Phnom Penh, with dessert on a rooftop over looking the city.

We decided not to say anything until the last day of our trip and kept it to ourselves. Finally, after a long plane trip back to the States, my parents met us at the airport, anxious to hear on what they hoped would be our engagement. After hearing I said yes, they shouted in celebration and caused a huge commotion in the middle of the airport, complete with lots of hugs and kisses.

Brandon and I are to be married June 3rd, of 2016. Our engagement was incredible, and more than I could ever have dreamed of, but I take even more joy in knowing it only precedes the years of adventures we'll have together for the rest of our lives.

This is much later than I wanted it to be!

I want to thank everyone from Best for Bride who helped me during the hectic planning of my wedding. Everything went off perfectly, and a lot of it had to do with the help of everyone there.

I was worried about getting decor done at an affordable price, but when roaming around on the BFB website, I saw that it was offered. I showed up to the church and was amazed with the aisle drapery! Then showing up at the reception and seeing the head table - it was perfect. Thank you so much.

A special thank you to a couple of ladies:

Melloney - Thank you for being so supportive and assuring me that my dress would be perfect for the wedding. Thanks for not thinking I was a crazy lady when I bawled my eyes out in the change room!

Larissa - You're amazing. I would have been a wreck if I had not had you to help me with all of my dress woes. I've sent you another note of thanks. I hope that you can help me with the bridesmaid dress I will need in September 2011.

Again, thank you to everyone at Best for Bride. I'm sending a couple of pictures from my wedding on October 2, 2010.

All the best,
Sabrina Copeman


Thank you and the whole crew that helped me get my wedding dress.
God Bless you guys a ton!

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!!

Amanda Ugarkovic highly recommends Best for Bride

So tell me about your experience at Best for Bride.
Well, I spent some time in the big city. I thought may be I can go there and find some styles and being a little larger was not exactly easy but I came to Barrie, saw the girls at Best for Bride and they hooked me up. I had a much better experience, so much more fun and the girls really listened to what you want and you can be goofy and it is fun and it is OK. It does not have to be a stressful experience. So I would highly recommend and if you are looking for a gown and for a good time come to Best for Bride.
