Invitations from Gilbert's Written Word, East Longmeadow, MA
How he proposed (in her words): "After seven or so years of dating, Keith and I headed out for our annual camping trip - this time heading back to a favorite spot in Lake George where we had gone our very first year of dating.
"After a few attempts foiled by bad weather and cold, we had a beautiful day. It was July 10, 2009. Keith and I decided to go out for dinner and headed towards Fort Ticonderoga. We found a neat little restaurant overlooking the falls in downtown and a park with a covered bridge.
"We had dinner and then decided to go for a walk in the park. Keith suggested we go over to the waterfall to take some pictures. I am a sucker when it comes to taking pictures, so I obliged, took my photos, and was ready to go. I had a plan because there was a farm we passed on the way with ice cream and miniature horses- so cute! Again, Keith stalled and suggested that we head over to the covered bridge so that I could take some more photos. I agreed and snapped a couple shots of the bridge. Finally Keith said, 'Come take a look at the sunset over the waterfalls from inside the bridge.' I figured, cool shot!
"Keith then asked if I liked the view and I, of course, was oblivious as he got down on one knee and pulled a box from his pocket. He asked me to marry him and I'm pretty sure I squeaked and said, 'Are you serious?!' Finally, I said 'YES!' Keith then got up and wiped a pebble from his knee and handed it to me and said, 'This is for your scrapbook.' Ahh, that's my love, he knows I am a closet crafter.
"Once out of the bridge, I pointed to the sign and said, 'How did you know that there was a bridge called the Fort Ti Kissing Bridge?' He didn't, and said I should leave that part out so it seemed like he planned it."
What they thought of Gilbert's Written Word: "The owner is extremely knowledgeable and was able to help me identify a look that I liked even better. She also helped tremendously with the wording on the invite and response cards."
