I just got a visit from our lovely Design Production Director Denise Clappi, who told me the best proposal story EVER, straight from the lips of her newly engaged nephew. It goes something like this: Michael and Victoria (who met on Match.com!) had just bought a house together in a charming town in Massachusetts. They decided to tour the house one more time before the big move, and when they arrived in what will soon be their master bedroom, Michael had a surprise waiting for his girlfriend of two and a half years. See below.
In case you couldn't tell from the photo, Victoria said yes.
What gets me about this story is just how sweet and simple it is, not to mention romantic. No elaborate plans, no teeming masses -- just the two of them, beginning their new lives together in the new place they'll call home. It's really the best memory you could ask for.
And now, Bride's Guide readers, I challenge you to a duel. Think you've got a better proposal story? Prove it.
