The Notebook Proposal
Help us with our wedding here
hey folks. i know i haven’t posted anything in months because i’ve been quite busy with work and wedding planning stuff, and i feel a little slimy for doing this, but i figured it’s worth a shot.
all the wedding plans are coming together, but even after cutting costs as much as possible (guest list of 0, very simple “pre”-ception, suit from ebay), this thing is proving to be a bit much for us. a friend suggested we setup an indiegogo page to try to raise some funds but i don’t know how exactly to get exposure.
i’m not asking you guys for any money, but i know there are people out there that might want to throw a few bucks at our story, so if you could reblog the next post i put up with the video and indiegogo link, we will appreciate the bejeezus out of you.
Best $1 I’ve spent in a while
The Belle Brigade - “Losers”
I’m a little late to the game, but this is the best video I’ve seen since Tokyo Police Club’s “Wait Up” (yeah, I like dogs).
I was going to save the full story until we got our wedding site live, but I wanted to get some more details out to persuade folks to vote for us at the Proposal Awards before they end on 1/2/12. Please take a quick second to vote here, no annoying registration or anything, just one click. And if you like the story, please reblog like crazy to get the word out.
And so, the details…
The first night after checking in at our B&B and eating some amazing southern cooking at Virginia’s on King I took her by the American Theater where Noah and Allie had their first date. (name/date blocked for privacy)
We keep a notebook where we write notes and poetry to each other. I had snuck it into our luggage and wrote this note inside, leaving it by her pillow when she woke up the next morning.
The arrows led to the dress and shoes I had some great people on etsy make for her to match her favorite outfit from the movie.
While I was trying on the dress he revealed to me that the road our hotel was on was the same location where the “green dress scene” was filmed and went outside to get some pictures. Here’s the scene from the movie for comparison http://vimeo.com/24744082
Channon in Allie’s dress!
Me in Noah’s hat.
Next I took her to Cypress Gardens and we took a rowboat through the swamp. Sadly no geese/swans live here. They were brought in for the movie.
The final surprise! We drove down a long dirt road and up a gravel driveway to reveal Noah’s plantation house. She was freaking out a little bit since it was a private residence and someone was on the front porch. She didn’t know I’d snuck down there a couple months before, found the house, and spoken with the owner. After this photo I took her out on the dock and proposed. No photo there though, only a video, and that’s ours. :)
Pleeeeease don’t forget to vote here.
Very appropriate comic popped up today as we’re trying to win the Proposal Award but are getting destroyed by boring and thoughtless proposals from people that must just be spamming everyone like crazy.
And after complaining about spamming people… if you haven’t already done so, please vote for us http://bit.ly/notebookproposal
