Shana and Seth - Entertaining, Yet Thoughtful, Planned Out, And Romantic Proposal

On the 6th of April, 2016 I got engaged to the love of my life where it all started, a small university in Pennsylvania. We both were Physician Assistant majors in a 5 year program. My fiance (first time using that word!) graduated from the program in August 2015. He has been working since October 2015 as a PA in urgent care, as well as being very active in volunteering with street medicine. In the midst of getting his adult life started, little did I know or expect that he was planning to propose.

I am in my first graduate year of PA school, with a graduation date of August 2017. We have a class where we practice our history and physical (H&P as I shall refer to it from here on out) exams on paid, standardized patients who are well trained. If you're a Seinfeld fan, I am sure you're familiar with the process. Eight people out of about 30 in our lab group are chosen each class to report to the standardized lab and take the H&P of a patient with a specific complaint, relevant to what we're learning in lecture.

Well, this week it just so happened to be male genitourinary. I had gone the past two times in a row for female genitourinary (if you calculate this out statistically, it should not happen since we only have this lab once a weel), and on this Wednesday, I was sure I would get to stay in the lecture hall and observe whoever was chosen to be on screen that day.

What do you know ... my professor, Carly, PA-C, who was calling the names of the students to report to the simulation lab, called my name! Of course as we were walking down the hall, I might have said something along the lines of "I shouldn't be going, I've gone for times already ... there are people who haven't gone yet"!

Of course, I was mostly joking and do appreciate the practice on "real" patients. We arrived at the lab and Carly abruptly stops us saying "WAIT WAIT, I need to make sure all of the patients are in the right rooms". I didn't think anything of this at that time, but looking back now I know she wasn't doing exactly what she said ;)

I arrive in the vestibule where the exam rooms area, and we get the chief complain of "abdominal pain" written on the door on a sheet of paper. We have 5 minutes to gather our thoughts and plan out what questions to ask/what physical exam to do.

Now I am really anxious because I was expecting something more like "discharge" or "erectile dysfunction". But no, it was the ever so vague "abdominal pain".

We get the que from the control room: "You may begin your encounter".



I knock on the door (which is virtually pointless because I never hear the person say "come in" due to the knocks of the other 7 people doing the directed practical). I walk in with a straight gaze fixed on his chest, just kind of seeing a gown. Then I glanced up, and I saw not a standardized patient, but the man who I would soon agree to spend the rest of my life with (unbeknownst at the time).

Confused, I asked, "Are you a SP (standardized patient)"? And he said "Yes I am!". So, I did what a good student does and proceeded with my exam, thinking maybe the professors are trying to be funny by utilizing my boyfriend as a patient for the male GU exam. I said, "ok so hi what's your name??" and he introduced himself, and I identified myself as well. I also mentioned I would wash my hands because we have a checklist we are graded off of, and that is always one of the first things we must do.



When he started to describe his pain, it wasn't abdominal pain, but rather chest pain. At this time I was slightly confused with the situation (Psh, we did cardiology in the fall!!.... just kidding guys I remember it), so I listened to what he was saying... always listen to the patient. They will tell you what you need to know:)

He said it is non-radiating, worse when he's away from me, and better only when we're together. At this point, I knew exactly what was coming and my lips started to quiver uncontrollably. He said the only way to fix that would be to spend the rest of his life with me. He got off the exam table, and down on one knee.

Now, since we were both in the same program, he was taught by the same professors (doctors and PA-C's who are currently teaching me) and still has an amazing relationship with them. They were all in the exam room watching live, and my family as well as his was there as soon as we came out of the exam room. You know the jokes that flew after that one: "Wow, you must have did one heck of an exam"! (Haha.)

So that's our story, and I hope everyone enjoyed this entertaining, yet thoughtful, planned out, and romantic proposal. I'm ecstatic all of this is on tape as well, because we can share it with our kids one day down the line, and all of you right now. We're both over whelmed and incredibly happy to start our lives together.



The future Mr. and Mrs. Campbell

Hi best for bride,

Thank you so much for my beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Ordering online was so easy even from Ireland. I received online help from Olga and she was very helpful and supportive. I have already ordered my dress in a store locally when I was recommended to use your site but if I had known that ye also did beautiful wedding dresses I would of changed my mind.
The girls were very happy in their dresses and they looked beautiful in the photos. I would have no hesitation from ordering through your website in the future.

Thanks again,
Deirdre

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.
