Being part of a wedding has to be one of our favorite moments as RetroViewer makers! It is an event in a couple's life that is shared by loved ones and remembered forever.
Recently engaged, Aileen, had been dreaming of a unique way to pop-the-question to her potential bridal party for years. In fact, the customized RetroViewer proposal was 5 years in the making!
Aileen to us:
"My fiancé and I recently got engaged last fall, and I wanted a creative and personalized way to propose to my bridal party. I always go big on the holiday of love--so for Valentine's Day last month, I threw a party for my besties: My college roommate, my sister, my cousin and my high school bestie. We were surrounded with heart decorations, good food and good company! They all knew my love for love, so before the end of the night I handed them all gifts. But they didn't what was coming next. All were white RetroViewer sets and I watched them with excitement as they viewed the reel, slide after slide. The slides read: Will You. Be My.... Finally on their last slide of the reel was the final part of the ask: "Bridesmaid/Man of Honor/Maid of Honor."
With gasps, screams and tears--they all said YES!!! Each photo was a treasured moment of our friendship, making the "ask" even more special. Since then, they have each told me how they look at their RetroViewer countless times. They had no idea I had been dreaming of this day, 5 years ago when I purchased my own RetroViewer (the red one!). Thank you RetroViewer for making this part of our wedding journey and friendships so unique and memorable!"
