    I'm a little late posting this since I got engage back in July, but I think he did a wonderful job!!!!!


    Here's my wonderful story as posted on my wedding website...


    Leaving very early on a Friday morning in July, Brandon and Stephanie left for a long weekend on Mackinac Island.  Throughout the whole day, Stephanie couldn't help but notice Brandon being a little weird, either jumbling his words or just being out of it.  She blew it off as him just being tired since they woke up so early.


    Later in the day, Brandon told Stephanie they had dinner reservations for the evening and to be ready at a specific time.  Though Steph wasn't familiar with any of the restaurants on the island, B refused to tell her the place. 


    Before heading to dinner, Brandon suggested a walk along the beach since they had time to spare.  But before they left the hotel, Steph asked Brandon to carry her chapstick.  He refused left and right, claiming he already had too many items in his pockets.  With his phone, camera, and room key, he couldn't take the chapstick.  Laughing the whole time, Steph was able to convince him to take it.  While walking out of the hotel, he kept complaining about having too many things in his pocket.


    As they walked along the beach in front of Mission Pointe Resort, Brandon stopped Stephanie and started to kneel.  He put his hand in his pocket and after struggling a bit (due to the chapstick!) he pulled out a ring and asked Steph to marry him!  She instantly said "Yes!" and grabbed the ring out of his hand!


    Brandon had a private horse and buggy waiting for them to take them to the restaurant!  When they arrived at The Woods, the manager congratulated them (B gave advance notice) and sat them at a very nice, candle-lite private table!


    Steph was now on Cloud 9 and Brandon was back to normal...
