Engagement story #1!!


Ladies and Gentlemen, we have our first entry in the 2011 engagement story contest! Here's the true tale of Rhian and James. (Need a refresher on the rules? Click here!) Voting will commence in early May. The couple chose the Moose Bride and Groom cake toppers to illustrate this story.

Rhian and James met at band camp, yes, band camp. He was a third year section leader and she was a first year in the baritone section. He was dating someone else but after spending every afternoon together in rehearsal it soon became clear that the other relationship would not work and then Rhian and James began dating. They graduated from college and traveled west to begin a life together. After almost seven years of laughter and love, James decided to make things official. While on a walk with their dachshund, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes and accidentally tackled him. They plan to live happily ever after.

Awwww....now wasn't that special? You can enter your story if you're a currently engaged couple and win one of two free cake toppers! Click here for details on this year's contest!
