Cynthia & Richard Amazing Proposal - San Francisco Chronicle

4:30am August 13 2011. Richard wakes me up to go on a hike. I ask why since its still 4:30am and he responds and says it would be nice to catch the sunrise. I didn't think twice of it because Richard is very adventurous and likes being spontaneous, so I reluctantly drag myself out the house. We go to Fremont Older in Cupertino, CA. The trail leads up a mountain and at the top there is a landing area with a bench. As I approach the top, I see rose petals on the ground. At that point I was thinking and said to Richard, "Oh how sweet! Someone got proposed to here last night!" I still had no idea it was all for me. The sun is just starting to rise and I'm trying to soak in the beautiful view. I look around and see a newspaper on the bench. I turn to Richard and say, "That's weird, someone left a newspaper." Richard walks over to the bench and tells me that it was today's newspaper and suggests that we read it. Still at this point I had no idea what was in store. Being still half awake and not observant, I honestly thought the newspaper was forgotten by a previous hiker. I agree to look through the paper and Richard hands me the datebook section in the San Francisco Chronicle. I still don't think anything was out of the ordinary since I rarely read the paper and only like reading about movies and TV shows. So I flip through the paper and see an ad of my dog Teddy and under the picture it says "Cynthia I love you Will you marry me? -Richard" I look up from the paper and Richard is holding a box with a ring. How could I say no to a man who woke up at 3:00am to run to find the nearest open store with the paper and run up a mountain in the dark to set this all up.

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.

Joan Heath

Hi Best for Bride team,

I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.

Thank you again, it really meant a lot.
Sylvia Nazarethian

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.
