Big congratulations to our AG Bride, Abigail, who won our proposal story giveaway last week! We received a lot of beautiful entries, and while picking just one winner was not an easy task, we absolutely fell in love with Abigail and Khalil’s story.

Their Proposal Story

“Khalil, my then boyfriend, had my friend Jacquelyn invite me to get coffee with her at Dublin, downtown. We had coffee together, and then we drove away towards where the steps are downtown at the monument. As we drove, she said she had seen a promo video for Dublin, and that was why she had wanted to go there. She handed me her phone, and there I saw my sweet boyfriend in a video he had made. He was walking from Dublin to the top of the steps while saying what he loved about me and why he was excited to spend his life with me. We parked at the bottom of the steps, and I ran around the corner.

Sure enough, there he was standing at the top of the steps, just like he was at the beginning of the video! Candles lit the way up to him. There was a rose in a glass vase (with a gold bottom, because he knows how much I love gold) at every landing with a note attached. They spelled out Will You Be My Bride? He purposefully used the word bride to symbolize the relationship between Christ and His Bride, the Church.

I partially walked and partially ran up the steps to him. The whole time, he had my friend and her husband taking photos. Another friend was taking video, and ANOTHER friend was taking drone footage! At the top, he got down on one knee, and I was ecstatic.

Moreover, the surprises continued in big and small ways throughout the rest of the weekend. First, he took me to the beautiful Natural Bridge hotel for a romantic dinner. We danced inside as snow started to fall outside. The next day, it was practically a blizzard. While it was super romantic, it caused him to cancel the surprise engagement party he had planned! It actually worked out for good, because he surprised me with a dozen white roses and had three of my best friends drive from 3 separate states to celebrate with us! We later rescheduled the bigger party.

Khalil’s proposal was unreal! He thought of every small detail to make me feel the luckiest woman in the world (and I am!). I found my dream dress at Ashley Grace, and we are getting married at Sierra Vista on June 9, 2019! I cannot wait to marry my best friend!”

Isn’t this such an amazing proposal story?! Khalil did a fantastic job! We couldn’t be more excited for them! Abigail also sent us a few pictures from the night of their proposal and we’re so exited to share them with you!
