The Best Kind of Christmas Movie

With the economy being what it is these days, holiday gift giving can be quite difficult.  I think sometimes people think special has to be expensive. So not true…listen to this thoughtful gift we helped a friend of ours create for his wife.

Derek and Angie have been together for 12 years.  He’s bought her every piece of jewelry, spa treatments, dance lessons, you name it.  They just bought a new house and so of course, spending tons of money on gifts for each other seems a bit crazy.  Derek keeps telling me they’re not going to exchange gifts this year, that their gift to each other is the house.

The house really is beautiful, but I tried to explain to him, “I know now isn’t the time to go spending a bunch, but let me tell you she’s not going to get the warm and fuzzies and feel that holiday love on Christmas morning, when you remind her, ‘Oh yeah, we already got our gift.’  Everyone (ok let me narrow that down….every girl) wants something under the tree to open and every girl, in the end, just wants something thoughtful.  Most thoughtful things aren’t expensive at all.”

So here’s what we came up with for Derek.  It’s so cute I can almost see her delight on Christmas morning!  Derek is going to videotape interviews of the 10 closest people in Angie’s life: her two sons, her parents, siblings, best friends; then at the end, their boys will interview Derek asking the same questions he asked them, all centered around Angie.  Questions like…How they would describe her?  How much they love her?  What they love about her?  What ways she’s been impactful in their lives?  He’ll record all the most important people to her, saying the things they don’t say nearly as often as they should.

I can not imagine a gift more filled with love.  It’s going to be so awesome and certainly a gift she’ll treasure forever.  Happy Holidays!

Love,

Caught on Tape

I am a big fan of So Cal photographer, Troy Grover’s blog and talent so I had to share his cute proposal video. It is always fun to read about romantic proposals, especially when it is somewhere beautiful like Crystal Cove Beach in California, but even better, when the guy gets his proposal on film! Hopefully this inspires you to consider getting a good buddy or professional to film you popping the question. It’s priceless!

Troy planned a “fun filled” day of boating and an exclusive photo shoot that ended in a “Yes!”  This is what Troy had to say,  “I’m so glad I got it on film as well.  We were taking pictures with the timer on my camera and I went back pretending to look at the last picture but I was really hitting the record button because I was going back to propose to Aimee.”

Now that you have the backstory, watch it unroll.  Enjoy!

Childhood Fantasy

Good morning! I hope you are ready to snuggle up with a cup of coffee and a true classic. Ok, most of us don’t have time to read the entire series of Anne of Green Gables but we can recall the scene with Anne Shirley and Gilbert Bythe’s infamous kiss on on the bridge.  You will soon understand why I loved working on this proposal!

William’s girlfriend, Sarah, absolutely adored Anne of Green Gables. One of her favorite childhood memories was reading the book and watching Anne and Gilbert’s romance develop. William understood how much she enjoyed watching the movie too, so he brilliantly located the exact bridge filmed in the movie.

William whisked Sarah away for a spontaneous get-a-way and proposed to her in Gormley, Ontario on the exact bridge! Yes, you read that right…talk about tuning into your girlfriend’s wildest fairytale!

Let’s just say Sarah had no words, but she recognized the bridge right away! Best part is she actually got to reenact “the kiss” with her own Gilbert Blythe. This is what I love about proposal stories, they can be totally unique and adorable with some real thought.

Love,

I’ll Write You A Love Song

Last week I was chatting with a lady who works with my husband. You know us girls we can talk just about anything, and the conversation led us to Christy telling me about her amazing proposal. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her tell the story as if it happened yesterday not ten years ago. I wish I could have recorded it and replayed it for you.

Christy is a professional acappella singer and so was her husband until he joined the Air Force.  On the night of their engagement, Christy had a big performance (hundreds attending) and Jim organized a “surprise” without her knowing.   He got a group of fellow singers together, and turned Christy and his song “God Blessed The Broken Road” (awesome song by the way) into an acappella performance.

It was tradition for someone special to hand the performer a rose at the end of their acappella. After Jim handed Christy her rose, the group of gentlemen came from behind her and joined Jim in serenading her. By the last verse, Jim was on one knee, with a cheering crowd, proposing to Christy!  They have now been married for 10 years and she still gets gitty telling the story. Love love love!

One of the best parts is the proposal didn’t cost Jim a dime, just time writing the acappella and contacting his wonderful friends for help!  Stay tuned…I’m hoping to get the video from Jim and Christy’s proposal so we can all enjoy the romantic acappella.

Love,

Mugs and Love

I‘m completely in awe with this adorable relationship. From the sweet comments Andrew said about his new fiancée, Lindsay, to the moment he popped the question is incredible. I just love this couple.  Lindsay’s dream is to own a coffee/book shop someday so what did Andrew do… gave her a sneak peak into that reality.

Andrew planned the proposal to a tee at their favorite coffee shop thanks to the store manager.  He left all his little proposal goodies for the manager to set up right before closing, so the cafe would be empty.

To start the day right, Andrew left a new novel (she reads a book weekly) and a cute new coffee mug on her nightstand to help start her collection for her book/coffee shop.  That evening they went to dinner and Andrew suggested they go grab a cup of coffee on the way home.  When they walked into their beloved local coffee shop they both ordered their usuals. Andrew called Lindsay over to look at the merchandise shelf.  There were four green mugs each with a handwritten romantic quote (ie. “She is everyones favorite person in the room”, “She is a dork but works it well”, etc.).  Lindsay at this point thinks the mugs are adorable but not certain if they are in fact about her.

Then the barista brought their beverages over. Lindsay’s coffee came in the 5th green mug, dated with the quote “She is Everything.”  Next thing she knew, Andrew was on his knee, opening the ring box, asking her to be his wife!

The barista snapped photos of him proposing and her crying, “Yes!”  The manager then came around the corner and congratulated the couple by handing Lindsay oleanders (her favorite flowers) that Andrew had dropped off earlier.  Talk about icing on the cake!

Andrew found the adorable green mugs at Target.  Have fun browsing!

Winter Wonderland

Tis the season of LOVE! Get ahold of how imaginative and adorable this Christmas time proposal was for Lille. It’s like walking into a fairy tale.

John and Lillie loved their annual trip to Breckenridge, CO during wintertime.  After a lively day of snowboarding he scheduled a full-body massage for Lillie that evening.  When Lillie returned she found a note in the room that said, “I’m out back.”  During the hour and a half she was gone, John set up a candlelit pathway in the snow leading to a small table, crystal champagne flutes and a snowman.  This was not just any snowman. The snowman had an open engagement ring box on its branch stick hand.   To make the proposal more magical it was snowing! Snowboarding, a massage and a fiancé all in one day!

Tip: Use battery votive candles so the snow is no problem. You can easily find battery votives online or decorative battery candles at Target.

Say “Yes” to Thoughtful Marriage Proposals

Proposing Marriage is unmistakably a significant yet anxious moment in your relationship.   It is hard enough to get the words out “Will You Marry Me?” let alone planning the perfect way to propose.  It is the “YES!” moment you will always remember yet a moment you cannot redo if she isn’t crazy about how you asked.

I challenge you…do not spend thousands of dollars on an engagement ring to whip it out in an unromantic place like a parking lot. Yes, the parking lot proposal is true!  Instead, tune into her favorite things, places, memories of you two, or perhaps a dream she has and turn that into a creative proposal.  Perhaps it’s singing to her at the airport you met her or making a cute home video with you as the commentator of past favorite memories.
