Walter and Hailey were such a wonderful couple to work with. Walter even wrote a fantastic testimonial for us to share with our readers! So, who better to tell the proposal story than Walter himself:
“I met Hailey during leave this past December. We really hit it off and were eager to stay in touch. Unfortunately, I had to go back to Basic Training in South Carolina. Our relationship blossomed rapidly as we continued to send each other letters. When I was allowed to have my phone at AIT we couldn’t get enough of each other. We began Skyping in March and I met her family and friends while I was stationed at Fort Sill. Eventually I was allowed to get off base on the weekends and Venus, Texas was close enough to go visit her from there. Things continued to move along smoothly. We went to Rangers games and found other similarities.
I wanted to propose to her, but was unsure of how to do it. She preferred that I had someone on hand to photograph the moment, and that is when I landed upon The Yes Girls. Even though I was unable to travel up to Dallas for the planning, they did a fabulous job of picking a wonderful place with a beautiful gazebo. They made a large board with 15 of our pictures together and 15 verses that really spoke to us. They even made a fake flyer for a “Garden Show Event” on the special day so that I could trick Hailey into going to the place. Hailey and I arrived and the plan worked out wonderfully! I got down on one knee and asked and she made my dream come true by saying yes! One of the best days of my life, and I couldn’t have done it without The Yes Girls. God bless them so much, Hailey and I will remain engaged as I am deployed to South Korea for a year, and we are getting married April 15, 2017.”
