Okay, so I have been reading everyone else's stories and am so excited to get to add my own finally! Hopefully I am posting this in the right place,,,


Brandon and I met first day of the first year of university, fall 2003. He stood out as this super tall, shy guy, and I was really shy (and short), but thankfully we became friends, then best friends, then (no shock to anyone) fell for each other, and now (yay!) we're engaged!


We have been talking about getting married for a long time, but always as a "one day" kind of thing. He went back to school, so we kind of assumed it wouldn't be until that was done. We had been talking about destination weddings recently, and even looked online a bit. I thought maybe he would ask soon anyway, since I was usually whining about it, but I really didn't know for sure, since I had thought that in the past.


Well anyway, we went on vacation earlier this summer; two weeks in Riviera Nyarit. (Gorgeous place - Palladium Vallarta - loved it!). We were there for a few days, and he kept mentioning walking on the beach at sunset, so I would think, THIS IS IT, but then, nothing.  One day we even walked up this little hill overlooking the ocean one sunset, and he looked around and was like, Well, we should come back here sometime to take some pictures. So, I thought, oh well, never mind, I guess it is not going to happen this time. 


We were half-way through our trip (a total of 2 weeks). We had gone out for supper, and then for cappuccinos, and then took a couple pictures - in front of our building, the scenery, that kind of thing. We figured it was going to be a nice sunset, so he ran up to the room to get our video camera. Then we wandered along the beach, checking out hermit crabs, then walked back up the hill, him filming the whole way. (which is the only reason I can remember so well). About halfway up the hill, he started saying he had a rock or sand in his sandal; YES - I actually fell for that!


So at the top of the hill, he hands me the camera, so he can fix his sandal, and I actually turned around so I could film a panoramic of the view (how perfect!); well, I am filming, and as I bring the camera around to face him, there he is (close to eye level, actually), down on one knee, holding a ring box! I started giggling, and promptly dropped the camera (thank goodness for the wrist strap!). He asked me to marry him, and of course I said yes, and then kept asking if he was serious... haha. On the video, you just see the ground, the sky, the trees, but you hear us, which is so awesome! I love that I have a record of it!


After, we took some quick pictures (he knew I would want them later), and then headed down the hill. The resort offers champagne at sunset every night, so we each had a glass on the day beds, to watch the rest of the sunset. Then we ran off to the internet centre to email our families to tell them the news! The best part? We got to enjoy a whole week on our own engaged separate from everyone else! Woohoo! So happy, and loved it all!


Okay, I have never pasted pics in here before, but let's give it a shot!



The rest of the sunset



A close up of my ring - it is perfect, exactly what I would have picked - I wanted a single diamond with a funky band - perfect!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
