Facebook Proposal Story Contest: And the Winner Is…
During the month of September, The Breakers’ Parisian boutique Guerlain sponsored a Facbeook contest where our team asked former brides and brides-to-be to share their proposal stories.
We’d like to send a special thank you to the brides and brides-to-be who entered, and the fans, friends and family who voted for them. We’re so honored you shared your beautiful proposal stories with us, and our readers. (Read all the proposal stories on our Facebook wall.)
With 81 “Likes,” our winner is Breakers’ bride-to-be Alicia Lagundino! Alicia will receive a full makeover at the Guerlain Boutique at The Breakers, and a bottle of the new Shalimar perfume.
Alicia and fiancé Andrew will tie the knot at The Breakers this coming January. Until then, please enjoy Alicia’s beautiful proposal story…
Last year, Andrew proposed in the Boston Commons park by re-creating the very night we met, seven years prior. Just as we did on that night in 2003, we had dinner at Top of the Hub and strolled in the Boston Commons afterward.
That first date in 2003 was such a hit that we often talked about re-living the magic of that night “just because.” So, in the year 2010, when the time came to experience our first date all over again, I thought Andrew’s surprise itinerary was “just because”! 🙂
It was during our stroll in the Commons that Andrew asked me to be his wife. I was completely caught by a whirlwind of surprise and awe. I had no idea this was THE night. I exclaimed “YES” to the man I always knew I would marry, all the while a pre-arranged photographer discreetly captured our special “moment in time” on film.
We’re getting married at The Breakers in just a few short months. I am over-the-moon happy and can’t wait to say, “I do” to my forever love! 🙂
