Just like Valentine’s Day, Single Awareness Day or Hallmark Day–whatever you may call it came and passed, we are near the end of engagement season as well. Six million people (and jewelry stores) planned or expected a marriage proposal on Feb. 14th, which is up from 4 million last year, according to the Huffington Post. No wonder it’s the most popular day of the year to get engaged over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. It’s just that much more romantic! Forget the chocolates and roses, we want to know if your significant other popped the question yesterday. Let us know in the poll below.

Dardanelle, Arkansas

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I knew this wedding venue was the one because of its close proximity to our hometown.  Also, the openness and barn was absolutely beautiful and perfect to have a wedding with our close friends and family.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Flowers

2. Reception Tables

3. Cake 

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

The ceremony is the one thing I will never forget! It was so beautiful and so sweet. I will always remember the day I married my best friend!
