Story: We met 20 years ago in Durham, NC. We started out as really good friends. Best of friends you could say. Strictly platonic, but genuinely loving. Time passed and life happened. Each of us witnessed the other in relationships that didn't last, but through it all we remained best friends. Then nearly 20 years later, we met up in New York City after not seeing one another in years. We haven't separated since. It's been 4 happy years. Fate brought us together and we were blessed with a miracle child. We decided that despite distance and time, we are meant to be. He went out one day and picked the most beautiful perfect ring.....and I said yes!!!

Story: What can I say from college sweethearts to 8 years later we have decided to "Tie The Knot"! We met at the 1st HBCU Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, with here Majoring in Biology and myself Information Technology. Diamond being from Cincinnati, Ohio & myself Baltimore, MD. We often wondered how we would make it work after graduation in 2013 even after the ceremony crying in the room together for an hour as we were about to part was to go home. After countless nights and timeless days we talked 24/7 as she went to Durham,NC to live with her sister and I worked back at home. Still going strong in the year of 2015 we decided to move together and live in Prince Georges County, MD, as I promised her I would help support her in finding a career here in EXPENSIVE MD. During that time span it was kind of difficult to support one another living in one of the most expensive counties in MD due to the fact I had a Job in Virginia and she in MD, we needed to find a middle ground. Fast forward, we never lost our faith in God, and continued to put our best foot forward and financially get things done! Nothing was easy as I can attest that funds were low and living paycheck to paycheck was not fun. On Thanksgiving of 2017, I decided to propose to Diamond in front of her family in Cincinnati with the blessings of her Dad & Mom because she barely got to go home for the holidays and to visit family. She was absolutely stunned ! She said YES! So that is how we ended up here. Pricing weddings and with a guest list of at least 150 due to the fact that she has family that needs to travel, we are both part of a fraternity and sorority. I am a High School football coach part time along with semi-pro baseball manager.  We have A LOT of people that would love to attend our wedding, but honestly financially we cannot afford to have the wedding of our dream and invite our most dearest friends and family. I can attest that myself have built a little debt that is prohibiting our process also which I am working hard to get rid of even finding another part time to help pay for the wedding Diamond deserves. She is the most Selfless, Caring, Loving person on Gods green earth. She goes above and beyond her way to accommodate and satisfy others to the best of her abilities without thinking twice! I feel as though my mishaps are prohibiting our big day and often feel so bad about it. Which is why I am here the opportunity for someone to assist us with wedding cost/planning would be a magnificent help and blessing there is nothing more in life that I want then to see her beautiful smile at a wedding of our dreams! Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter this contest and hopefully we hear from you guys soon! Love, The Soon to be Mitchell's!

I reluctantly agreed to go on a few dates even though I only saw him as a friend. I think I told my sister just a week later that if I did end up dating him, I would probably marry him and here we are just about a year later!

Story: We were watching the third movie of the Riddick Trilogy and eating McDonald's that we had grabbed on the way to his house. He popped the question as Riddick watched the girl that he had come to rescue ride away in a ship. At first, I thought he was joking. We had been together for less than six months, we were still in high school, there was no ring, because we were two broke high schoolers. He wasn't. I said yes, maybe it was because I knew he was the one. Fast forward 3 1/2 years. We are still engaged, despite a diagnosis of cancer back in 2015 that he stuck around through. Finally tying the knot this year.

Story: Jordan and I decided to celebrate his birthday weekend with his family in Roxboro. We drove up Friday afternoon and found out once we arrived that we had a reservation at La Cocina at 6:30. When we got there, Jordan’s family, along with the Craig’s and Gentry’s were there. Still, no clue because if you know these families, you know every Friday night is La Cocina night. After talking for a while, Jordan’s mother comes up and touches my shoulder for me to turn around. I look to my left and there stands my mom and both of my sisters. At this point, I am so confused. They said they came to celebrate Jordan’s birthday with us. Jordan and I get up and sit at the end of the table with them. After a few minutes, Jordan stands up and I knew at that point what he was about to ask me. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Once I said yes, all of our family and friends along with those in the restaurant started clapping. Happiness filled my heart. La Cocina was the place Jordan and I first met a little over 4 years ago. For him to ask me in a place that’s so special to us as well as include both of our families was so amazing.

Story: David and Emily had planned to take a trip to Mount Mitchell to celebrate both Christmas and New Years. On the ride to the mountains, David surprised Emily with Christmas tour tickets to the Biltmore (Background: Emily has been wanting to visit the property since she was a little girl). Thus, she was over the moon! Fast-forward to Saturday, December 30th-- Nathan and Katelyn Fitts, David, and Emily spent the day touring the grounds of the Biltmore, wine tasting, and bearing the cold. The group had finally reached the top of the hill, creating the perfect backdrop of the rolling mountain landscape and the estate. Just as sunset was approaching, David asked to take a picture, then proceeded to get on one knee and give Emily her real Christmas present-- a lifetime with him.

Story: I met my handsome fiancé 4 months before he was set to be stationed in Fort Wainwright, Alaska for 3 years (we are both from New Jersey). To both of our surprise, we fell deeply and madly in love during that short time and decided that distance could not change that. Even without any idea of when he would be returning home to visit, we decided it would be well worth the wait. We faced many obstacles as individuals and as a couple during this time, as him being an active duty army infantryman - there is always a worry about deployment or not getting leave to come home to visit. The first year he was away, he was unable to visit while I was busy with nursing school. 12 months apart left us both missing each other dearly but it only brought us that much closer. My fiancé Brian ended up surprising me for Christmas! He got my whole family in on it and flew home to celebrate with everyone and propose! On December 22, 2016 he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him while out to dinner with both of our families. It was such an amazing experience to share with all of our supportive and loving family. The love we have is something that comes once in a lifetime. Love does not know what distance is and it never will.

Story: It was just an average Sunday, we spent the day together, then went out to dinner. After we left the restaurant he asked if I wanted to go for a walk around the Mill Pond, and I agreed to because I love walking around the Mill pond. It was a rainy, cold November night, so no one was around. We walked around for awhile, then he stopped in the center and was telling me how much he loves me and everything, then he used my full name and asked me to marry him and I was so excited I just started hugging him. He was like "you gotta put the ring on," so I put it on, it it's absolutely stunning.

Story: Jay and I have been dating for about 4 years. After the second year we started talking about getting engaged. He asked me to send him pictures of rings I liked around September 2016. For my birthday in February 2017 he surprised me with a Michele watch I wanted for over 10 years... I was so excited but at the same one surprised he spent that kind of money on a watch when he was saving for a ring.... then in June 2017 we went to the jewelry store and I picked out the center stone and band style, he said we were just getting ideas in person so I still didn’t know when he would be popping there question. For 4th of July weekend we took a plane trip to Atlanta, where he was born. Before leaving for this trip I told him I wanted to leave my Michele watch at home because I was nervous flying with a valuable item. He insisted I wore it there, so I did. 3 days into our trip we went to The Sundial restaurant for a beautiful dinner and this is when he proposed! I was texting my cousin a picture of the view from 72 stories high and when I turned around he was on one knee. I was completely shocked and found out later he rushed to have the ring made in time for the trip and actually had it on him the entire plane ride and every where we went the first 3 days with out me knowing! (And here I was worried about bringing my watch!) I definitely wasn’t expecting it and it was very exciting. We have spent the past 6 months planning our upcoming wedding and I couldn’t be happier to be spending the rest of my life with him.

Story: Our story begins with the fact that Hailey is not an easy person to surprise, and Cody is not an easy person to hide secrets. He loves giving gifts so much, he usually gets to excited to let them remain a secret. A week previously, Cody told Hailey that his aunt was to be in town, and he wanted to meet her for lunch. Hailey hadn't met her before, and Cody was really looking forward to it.Saturday morning came...It was a really baddd week for Hailey- work was hard, and emotionally exhausting- the last thing she wanted was to get dressed and find the energy to be happy to see someone. Cody woke her up in the morning, (far too early) with breakfast in bed. After breakfast, she promptly fell right back to sleep. Cody woke her up at noon, told her to get dressed- to which she whines about- Then actually helps her get dressed.They got in the car, and head to Avila beach. When they met up with Cody's aunt, they have a very quick drink and Cody's Aunt suggested taking a picture since it was such a beautiful day. Cody leads Hailey out on to the stone wall right next to the pier to take a picture. At that point, Hailey looks around to find out where Cody's Aunt had gone, and saw a friend of hers, with a video camera. Confused, she looked back at Cody and saw him getting down on one knee. She heared music start to play. The song was "Perfect Storm" by Brad Paisley. The song was Special to Hailey and Cody, as it was one that reminded Cody of Hailey early on in their relationship. Hailey had always thought she would be a calm, cool and collected person when she would be proposed to. Boy was she wrong! Blubbering like a baby, Cody asked her to marry him, and all she could say was "you surprised me!?"It was at that time that she heard clapping and cheering coming from the beach down below. She turned to look, and saw about 100 of her closest family and friends! Cody had invited all these people to witness their engagement. After hugs and kisses from all the people that came to be with them on that special day, they went down to the banquet hall that Cody had rented ahead of time to celebrate.

Story: Kind of a funny story, my boyfriend planned on asking me the next day after my parents came in to town from Milwaukee, but for some reason he got it in his head that I might say no so, he came up to the place where my sisters and I were having lunch after coming from the gym. So in my sweaty gym clothes and in front of my sisters and strangers he asked me. I said yes but this sweet guy in a bundle of nerves forgot the ring at home. So here I am in front of these strangers and my sisters and my guy had nothing to seal the deal with. LOL So the next day we arranged for my parents and his parents to have dinner together and as he was starting to ask me again he told his mother "mom you may want to get your phone out for this" she said "why" he said "mom just get your phone out" she says "why" again, so he says "forget it mom" and he started to ask me. She jumped up right as the ring come out and says "WAIT, LET ME GET MY PHONE ". The poor guy was so flustered he forgot what he was going to say. But I helped him along and just said "YES". That night though while we were alone he told me all the wonderful things he wanted to say to me at the dinner, he didn't have to though, I could see it all in his eyes.

Story: My fiancé and I have been together for 7 years, all starting when I was 17 and he was 19 going on 20. We first met through MySpace, which was obviously popular at the time, and from there we just kept talking. Then one night he came to my house and we sat talked until 4 in the morning and the rest is history. Fast forward 6 years, through multiple hard times and some of the greatest times, he surprised me with a trip to Disney World (he had me convinced we were going on a trip to Boston); I found this all out once we got to the airport. Once in Disney World, we spent the first few days going throughout the parks and then on June 8th we went to dinner at Cinderella’s Castle. We got all dressed up as it was our anniversary dinner (our actual anniversary is April 8th). So once we finished dinner and we’re getting ready for dessert, the music started changing signaling something was soon to happen. That was when I saw our waitress coming towards me with a white plate and a cover on top. She sat the plate in front of me and took the cover off and there was Cinderella’s glass slipper on the plate with rose petals. I then look to him and as he held my hand, after I asked what’s going in here, he looked at me and said “We’ve been together for 6 years...” and that’s all I heard because I completely lost it. The funniest thing that happened during that time was that my ring didn’t fit because I jammed my knuckle and my ring ended up being too small but it has since been fixed and we are set to be married on Saint Patrick’s Day (March 17th) this year. It was the best time of my life and next month will be even better!😍

Story: It was a Monday, my WORST day at work every week. I’m in meeting after meeting and I’m always getting home late. For some reason my coworker insisted that we were leaving at 5 o’clock that day, she “had somewhere to be” and encouraged me to leave too. I walked into my apartment around 5:25 pm and saw all of the downstairs furniture moved. There was a path made up of rose petals and playing cards leading from the door to the dining room table. On the table there was a note that read, “I don’t need 52 reasons, I only need one. Meet me where we first met. Hint: the stadium”Back-story: I’ve worked at the same minor-league baseball stadium part-time since I was 15 years old. Alex, my fiancé, started working there full-time 4 years ago. We are both in the production department so yes; we’re the crazy people on the field making you do the chicken dance during 7th inning stretch. It took us about 2 years of being friends to realize how perfect we were for each other. I contemplated changing my clothes and fixing my make-up but decided to jump in my car and race to the stadium (we only live 5 minutes away). Rose petals and playing cards led me into the box office (I was shaking), onto the elevator and into a skybox suite where our song was playing, pictures of us were displayed on the TVs and Alex was standing with a BEAUTIFUL ring, champagne and King and Ace playing cards (K&A) on the table.He wants me on his team forever and I said yes! At 6:30 most of our family and friends arrived for an engagement party. It was perfect.

Story: My sister and her fiance are an online dating success!! I'm so thrilled, as he maid of honor, to share the details of their love story. Rob and Laura met in January of 2015. Laura was in a long-term abusive relationship and Rob had been in love before, but they both knew there was something better out there. On their first date, Rob and Laura played trivia together at a local bar. When they won, the trivia host took their picture together-- the first picture of them as a couple. TWO Christmases later, Rob hunted down that photo and gifted it to Laura!! He is pure romance and Laura deserves every ounce of love he has to give her. While traveling abroad years ago, Rob saw a small compact mirror that spoke to him at a local market. He bought it and kept it for nearly a decade with plans to gift it to the woman of his dreams someday-- he gave that mirror to my sister after just one year of dating. These two are a perfect match! Rob is a psychoanalyst and Laura works in career-placement at a college in their hometown of Rochester. I guess I should mention, Rob and Laura are both huge fans of the TV sitcom, Friends!! For their engagement, Rob hid a small lobster stuffed-animal in the house and proposed to Laura, saying she was his 'lobster'; a line from the television show. Wedding planning has now begun and these two have shown more love and affection than ever. Thank you!

Story: We met in High School while I was an exchange student from Germany. We were young but so in love and we worked it out through two years of long distance and being over 5000 miles apart. I moved back to the US for college once I finished school in Germany, so we could finally be together. Last October, after 6.5 years of dating, he finally popped the question! It was totally unexpected and he even made me plan the date! We both had a day off and decided to go hiking in Door County right on the shore of Lake Michigan. It was gloomy and windy and absolutely perfect. It was just us two when he pulled out the box out of his jacket pocket. We will be getting married at the park where we got engaged and celebrate at a car museum, as he and his whole family loves cars! Our day will be unique and different, but perfect for us.

Story: My fiancé and I met when we were 16/17 years old. We had hung out by accident pretty much at a social gathering. From that moment on we became inseparable. Fast forward 7 years. My fiancé is from New Mexico. I am from California. She has a huge family. I have about 3 people in mine. I knew I wanted her family to be there when I proposed. I finally got the courage to buy a ring and get a plan set up. I opened a credit card to buy it, and knew I was ready when I finally had it in my pocket. We were going to be with her family a couple days after Christmas until after New Years. As a professional photographer I had planned it to be the night we got there in downtown Santa Fe, with the Christmas lights still hanging and the town lit up with the luminaries. The day we got there I had it all ready to go, when myself and my fiancé’s family. (Except her) got the flu. We were basically quarantined in this hotel room for days. I finally got out of bed when we had plans to go to a family reunion/late Christmas party. Everyone was there having a good time drinking and eating. They asked me if I would shoot photos of everyone for a scrapbook of everyone being in the same house together at the same time. Everyone was outside getting their photos taken. Finally everyone went inside and my then girlfriend asked if she could get some portraits taken by herself. I myself in half-sick half-kinda buzzed self got on one knee and said how about u wear this on your finger when we take pictures, will you marry me. She said yes and I got to take reaction photos as I slipped it on her finger. It’s been almost 2 months since but still feels like yesterday.

Story: It all started on an opening morning of late archery season when me and my girlfriends were out hunting. It had been a long day when we ran into some friends camp where I met Matt.  We began talking and ended up staying up all night around the campfire just sharing stories and have been together for three years. This last November he surprised me on a trip to Las Vegas to surprise my mom and grandma who were there. He got my grandma and my mom who are scared of heights to ride this ride called the Lynx. It was so awesome because you could see the whole city of Vegas , and then 525 feet in the air he asked me to marry him. This was by far the biggest surprise ever and made it even better that my grandma and mom where there.

The very first date I had with Chris I ended up spending the night at his house, and actually had a seizure... probably one of the most embarrassing things that could have happened. I was absolutely mortified but he stuck with me though it all! We currently live together, and own a dog together. On December 2nd, 2017 chris and I were going to see a comedian in Philadelphia. We dropped off our puppy to be babysat because we actually had a few days to ourselves. I packed up our car with snacks, and drinks for our 3 hour drive. The entire 3 hours chris was very, very quiet which is unusual normally He is so talkative. I reached in the backseat of the car for some snacks for the ride, and he kept giving me the oddest looks, and kept asking “what are you doing” and I replied confused “getting a snack” I thought it was very weird. We finally got to the hotel unpacked our things and we were ready to start our day. We wanted to do some sight seeing in Philly, since we’ve never been. We ate cheesesteaks, and then wandered over to the liberty bell. There was a horse and carriage near the liberty bell. Chris insisted that we get on one and I was a little thrown off because that’s probably the first sentence I heard him say all day, I told him I didn’t want to get on the horse and carriage because I didn’t want to break the poor horses back. So Chris almost looked let down said okay well if there is one when we come back from the Liberty Bell we will get on it! We went and stood in line to see the liberty bell, and we had to go through security, immediately Chris started to freak out saying he wanted to get out of line, and I kept saying no, wondering why he kept acting so odd. So, we get through security see the liberty bell, and wander back to the horse and carriage. There was one horse and carriage on the side of the street Chris said okay we’re getting on! Before I could say no, we were on. The ride was a lot about the history of Philadelphia, and the tour guide was the absolute best she was so funny!! At the end Chris asked if the tour guide could take a picture for us, she got out on the side of the road and this asked the woman if she could take one from up top of the carriage. And there it came!! He got down on one knee, and proposed!! It had to be the best, most amazing feeling in the world!! And our tour guide got some amazing pictures!! I finally found out why he had Not been talking, he was nervous, and trying to make it absolutely perfect!! He was asking me to get out of the line at the Liberty Bell because he had the ring in his pocket, and he thought that when he sent it though the metal detector it would have went off and everything would have been ruined!

Story: We met in October of 2015 at Coyote Joes. I didn’t know what to think about him but we exchanged numbers. We decided to go to a movie the following Tuesday. I drove and on the way home from the movie there was a spider in my car and we argued over who was going to kill it, it escaped before we could kill it. We continued to go out on dates and then five months later he asked me out. I graduated college and got a job close to where he lived. In June of 2017 we bought a house and then a week later we got a puppy. In July we were going to the beach to see a friend and stopped at his friends to see them and let the puppy go on the beach. When we were walking the puppy he got down on his knee, in the water because the sand was too hot, and asked me to be his wife. So our love story continues!

Story: I got engaged to my beloved of 4 years now, on Feb. 8, 2018. He took me to Looking Glass Falls, a huge waterfall in the middle of winter, thankfully on a sunny day. We were heading on our vacation, and we took a detour near Asheville. He kept asking me if I knew where we were going, I didn't. So we pulled off on the side of the road to change. I will admit changing into a white dress my best friend got me on the side of the road is a bit funny. And yes I kept my tennis shoes on. He then traveled into Pisgah National Forest, and we stopped by this huge 60 foot water fall. Thankfully not a busy day, so we walked down. And then it happened. He took my hands and said the magic words, and I said yes, all you had to do was ask goofball. Which earned me a laugh, and with a few quick pictures on my selfie stick, as it is known to the world. Might not be the most romantic, but it was totally us.

Story: Stefan and I met in a rather ironic way. My best friend was dating his best friend! Stefan had run into my bestie Katie after not seeing her for over a decade sitting on an airplane weeks prior before even knowing she was dating his friend Trace at the time. Katie and Stefan high school friends from back home in San Francisco. Although the best friends did not work out- five years later and an engagement we sure did! Back in the day we would regularly spend time on the rooftop of the Tower 23 Hotel in Pacific Beach, San Diego overlooking the ocean. This quickly became our Sunday "spot" to catch the sunsets. Over the years we went a little less, so at a getaway in Palm Springs we decided our next date night would be back there. I got off work on my regular Wednesday, went home and put on a new dress I had picked up on the way home. We had an amazing candlelit dinner at the hotel restaurant and then proceeded upstairs to our favorite spot by the fire. I made a comment when we got to the fireplace upstairs how we weren't sitting in our usual spot and should move on over. The significance of this spot is where we both remembered we fell in love with each other talking about our spirituality and God. It was the first time I had ever had such a connection with someone in that way despite all the amazing other things we had going on early on. We carried into conversation about our future. He made a comment about how one day when I'm his "wife" - which was not a usual word in his vocabulary (lol) and before I knew it he was down on a knee! What made this more beautiful was the fact we were alone, no photographers or hotels guests near by. I think I cried for a minute before I responded and accepted the BEAUTIFUL pear shaped ring that was glistening in the fire light. To make the evening even more sweet he pretended we'd walk around the hotel to catch our breath but I quickly discovered he had a room key in his hand. He led me to an ocean front suite decorated in beautiful flowers and a nice bottle of champagne for us. We called our best friends and stayed up late still quite in shock that this moment we'd both been hoping for one day was here. We met up with his daughters, 5 & 8 the next morning over breakfast to tell them the special news. All happy tears! <3

Story: My husband to be, Niko, and I met in October 2015 on a cabin trip. We both had the same group of friends and had never really met until that day. I had arrived to the cabin late and went into the back yard and it was steep and muddy. Niko didn't even know me and ran up the hill to give me his hand to help me down the muddy walk. As soon as I put my hand in his I knew it was special. We talked all night and that was history! We fell in love quickly and I knew he was the one for me. He was away at a music festival when I came to the realization that I wanted to propose to him. It was like everything clicked. I have always been a strong independent woman and asking him to marry me felt like the cherry on top of our already beautiful life. I knew that I wanted it to be a bit over the top and special. We always loved the National Treasure movies and loved pretending things were crazy mysteries. I decided that I would plan a scavenger hunt for him. I bought a decoder ring and spent hours writing him coded clues. I planned with our family and friends so that each clue would take him to a different part of Pittsburgh where we had a special moment, our first date, our anniversary, etc. Our family and friends were waiting at each stop to give him the next clue when he got there. I made him canoli pancakes in the morning and gave him his first clue. He was 100% clueless and had no idea what my end game was. Luckily he trusted me and took off on his journey with his best friends. While he did that I got ready with my best friends and went to the last destination on the scavenger hunt, a beautiful scenic spot that overlooks Pittsburgh. Waiting for him to arrive with my family and friends was unbearable! When he finally got there it was the happiest I have ever been. I gave him flowers and got down on one knee and proposed with the coolest dinosaur bone, and meteorite ring that I purchased for him. HE SAID YES! And I am officially the happiest woman on earth! I can't wait for October 20th so that I can say "I DO"!

Story: My now fiancé and I are high school sweethearts, we’ve been together for 4 years now. We’ve been through a lot these last 4 years, moving, new jobs, Army enlistment and more. Now we’re getting ready to make that walk down the aisle! On January 25th we went on a walk along the Centennial trail in Spokane Valley, Washington with our 2 year old Dog, Link. There’s a spot on that trail that goes down by the river on that trail that is very special to us, it’s where we had our first kiss and where he asked me to be his girlfriend. While Looking over the beauty of the Spokane river my fiancé got down on one knee and finally asked me to be his wife! As someone who’s been waiting for this day for a very long time I don’t think he was able to finish his sentence before I said yes. I’m so excited to spend my life with the man of my dreams and absolute love of my life. This is just the beginning of our love story, and we’re so excited for everything else to come.

Story: When I met my fiancé, Tyler, we did everything completely differently than I’ve ever done with anyone else. He lived two hours away from me, and we decided to meet up while he was working near Cincinnati where I live. We had dinner in our work clothes and then spent two hours driving him back to his almost empty two bedroom apartment, taking the time to learn about one another and get comfortable with each other along the way. And every weekend from that point on, I made the drive from Cincinnati to Columbus to spend my days with him. Due to his epilepsy, he did not have a license at the time, so we built our relationship around that commitment and knew that every mile was worth being together. He finally moved to Cincinnati to be with me and close the distance that kept us from taking or relationship further. Since then, we’ve created a life together. We have a cat, an apartment, and big plans for our future. We’ve supported each other’s dreams and been there to keep one another focused. I wasn’t expecting him to propose to me when he did. We were rebuilding our finances up after some struggles, and I never expected him to have the money for a ring. Little did I know, he was doing side work and saving up as much extra money as he could. One day, he decided to take me out for a nice date. We hadn’t had a date night in a while, and so we took the time to dress as nicely as we could and head downtown Cincinnati for dinner. Little did we know, that weekend was the Cinci Beer Fest at Fountain Square, so the Square was crawling with loud, smelly drunk people. Tyler had to think quickly about what we would do. We decided to get some amazing steaks at Rockbottom Brewery. After finishing dinner, we decided to walk around the city. We walked across the Purple People Bridge over the Ohio River, enjoying the sunset. We found a quiet place with a beautiful view of the city and the sunset over the skyline and stopped to take photos. And as I was turned away from him, snapping a picture of the landscape, he got down on one knee with the ring and asked me to be his wife. I could barely answer him through the tears, but of course I said yes. I had a smile stretched across my face the rest of the night as we walked hand in hand, talking about our wedding back to the car.

Story: Brian and I met when we were in middle school and remained friends while we went through the majority of high school. His senior year, we reuinted and went on a couple of dates. I knew he was the one the first time I met him. We started dating on May 1st, 2015. Our faith and patience have been tested many times but there’s no one else I’d rather be with. On October 29th, 2016 he gave me a promise ring. A promise to never give up on us. On Christmas morning, I opened a present with a picture of him giving me my promise ring that had “Remember This?” written across it. When I put the picture down, he was on his knee. It was perfect in everyway. He is perfect in every way. I cannot wait to be his wife!

Story: Justin and I met from mutual friends. His best friend had just passed away months before. He started spending a lot of time with that best friends dad after him passing. His friends dad did karaoke dj'ing at a local bar and grill in my hometown. He decided to bring Justin one night and invited me along, so it was kind of like a blind date. We had no clue what the match-maker had up his sleeve. Justin was shy and didn't want to get on stage to sing karaoke, but I told him he could pick the song and I would song with him. He decided to pick a Hank Williams Jr.. We sung and just instantly connected. A few weeks later, he got my number from his best friends dad and we started talking. We went on our first "official" date and the rest is history. In August, Justin proposed to me before going to see Hank Williams Jr. in concert that night (ironic, right). He had planned my engagement with my best friend for weeks secretly. I had no clue. He included his family and mine, just like I wanted. I couldn't imagine it any other way. The proposal happened at the house that we are going to be living in when we get married. He had the entire back patio decorated in candles, flowers, and signs. We are excited to start planning a wedding and can't wait for September to be here! We are thrilled.

After he showed it to his 7 year old daughter to see what she thought, she immediately ran to me in the other room- Dad and brother in tow. She proposed for him in an excited gush of "Will you Marry our Daddy?" Proudly presenting her father in “ta da” hand gestures who is now on one knee. I’m pretty sure he may have had other plans and perhaps another time, but we all agree she proposed for Daddy perfectly!

Story: On what I thought, was about to be an ordinary Saturday morning during hunting season just turned out to be the best day of my life. Since he FINALLY killed the "big 8" yesterday (that he's been hunting since September) I was thinking this would be the first morning in a while we could be lazy, make pancakes and drink coffee. Howeverrrr, Mr. Compton woke up with a totally different game plan.... He woke up with ONE thing on his mind....hunting. Deer hunting. Man was I wrong. He said he wanted to get a few things done after waking up... go put corn out and go shoot the gun to make sure it was on target (which super confused me bc making sure your guns are on target I've learned is something you wanna do at the BEGINNING of hunting season). After getting over myself and putting my frustration behind me I gave up my idea of a lazy Saturday morning and gave in to going shooting with him. He went to "put corn out" and I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few things....the whole time i was there i was feeling pretty guilty about being such a diva. I decided to go home and write an "I'm sorry" letter before he got back. When he got home and read my note he seemed to REALLY take it to heart and came and gave me to biggest hug and sweetest kiss. So now, on the way to shoot we go....we get there and he sets ME up to shoot. I asked him several times why I was the one shooting but, he never answered me lol. After getting me set up with the shot gun not far from the target and as soon as I shot, glass shattered to reveal the most exciting question I'd ever been asked! I turned around not sure if what I was reading was real life and, the MAN OF MY DREAMS was down on one knee with the most perfect ring and I couldn't feel more blessed to get to be his wife! I LOVE YOU BARNEY JOE COMPTON II #heputaringonit Oh and, to ALL the people who knew.... Because apparently it was quite a few, great job on keeping the secret. I had NO idea! 😍😍😍

Story: Travis and I have been friends since high school, although we didn’t start dating until my freshman year of college, in 2011. (Between you and I, I always had a crush on him and just knew that one day, he would be my husband!) After a 3 year long-distance relationship, Travis and I worked for the next year at saving up so that we would be able to move in with one another. Travis and I purchased a home in 2015 and this crazy life finally started to slow down for us. We adopted 3 pets (2 cats and a dog) and had created a cozy little life with one another. Sadly, one thing was missing - THE RING! That changed on November 16, 2016! I had taken the day off of work to get some things done around the house! (There never seems to be enough time to do all the things we need to do!) Travis works in law enforcement and had worked a night shift the night before. Normally, he sleeps until about 2 or 3 when working night shift. All of a sudden, I heard him come out of the bedroom around 9:30 a.m. - he didn’t look like he had slept a bit! I was in the middle of mopping the floors and he suggested I stop so that we could go run some errands. Oddly enough, he is the one that had been nagging me about the floors! While I thought this was weird, I, of course, tossed the mop down (ugh - mopping!) and started to get ready for the day! During the time I was getting ready, Travis kept checking in on me to “see what time I’d be ready” and to let me know that what I had picked out to wear looked “perfect.” (He has the sweetest heart but this was so unlike him!) I knew something was off! Afterward, I worked my way into the kitchen to gather my car keys to head out and Travis told me to “hang on a minute” and he’d be right back. He came back into the kitchen and was shaking like a leaf! Secretly, I knew what was going on! (I mean, I had been waiting for this day for years!) He proceeded to get down on one knee and explain to me why he wanted me to be his wife. It didn’t take much convincing - I said “yes!” Like every little girl does, I dreamed of an extravagant proposal. You know, the kind of proposals you see on TV. You may read that last sentence and think I was disappointed at the proposal but you’d be incredibly wrong. While he didn’t plan a vacation proposal or make reservations at a fancy restaurant or have a dozen roses waiting for me, his proposal meant more to me than any of those things could ever mean. He proposed in the middle of our kitchen - the heart of our home. A home that we had made ours for the last 2 years; a place that holds a lot of special memories for the two of us. I couldn’t have asked for more and I hope this uncomplicated, undemanding, and affectionate proposal reflects what our marriage will be. Simple and so full of love. We cannot wait to become husband and wife on April 28, 2018 at Mountain View Farm!

Story: Christopher and I went on our first date just two days before he had to undergo a ten-hour surgery to remove a six-pound tumor and one of his kidneys. Our second “date” was a hospital visit in which I met his mother. Needless to say, our relationship escalated much more quickly than I ever would have expected. We were faced with adversity in the beginning stages of our relationship, which really set the stage for us to truly love and care for each other in good times, and in bad. It did not take us long to realize that we shared a deep connection and that we were meant to be together. Fast forward a year and a half; Christopher and I decided to spend his last summer off with a month long European adventure. We had plans to explore Italy, see Austria, and visit friends in Germany. One of our stops was in Lake Como, a beautiful lake nestled amongst the Alps in Northern Italy. I was very excited about this stop because my best friend had recommended it because of its beauty. Christopher told me that he had scheduled a boat tour of the lake, which I was really looking forward to because I couldn’t wait to be in the middle of the lake and look up and see the gigantic mountains towering around us. I have to admit, I was also a tiny bit excited to be able to look for George Clooney’s house on the lake and the Villa where John Legend and Chrissy Tiegen got married. When we arrived at the dock for the boat tour, the lady who checked us in let us know that we were the only people to sign up for the tour at that time, so we would be all by ourselves. I was thrilled! Little did I know, that was all a part of the plan. We got on the boat, and we immediately went out to the middle of the lake, where we had a beautiful view of Bellagio and the snow capped mountains it faces. I had mentioned that I wanted a photo of us in front of those mountains before, but Chris suggested that we wait to do it when we were on the boat. So, here we were, and Chris asked the boat driver to take our photo. It was hilarious. The boat driver didn’t understand that we wanted the mountains behind us and for about two minutes Christopher tried to tell him to turn the boat around, during which time Christopher became noticeably irritated. But then, when the boat finally got turned the way we wanted it, we posed for our picture and the next thing I knew Christopher was down on one knee telling me he loved me and asking me to marry him! It was amazing. The photos were stunning. We were able to celebrate with Champagne during the rest of our boat ride around Lake Como. Our stay at Lake Como was amazing, and definitely unforgettable.
