We were delighted to hear that Brian met his fiance, Sherin, through Bristlr. Even more exciting, they recently engaged! We’ve got another Bristlr wedding on the way!
Brian and Sherin’s engagement took place at 30,000 feet over the Pacific Ocean. Not your average proposal! You can watch the touching moment that Sherin said yes, right here:
You can read more about this touching story from both Brian and Sherin below.
I messaged back and forth with Southwest on Twitter for about a month ahead of time and they were on it from the start. They emailed the flight crew and let me know a bottle of champagne would be waiting on board. The mood lights on the aisle, the peanuts crown, and calling us both up to the front was all their idea and the pilot let us take a sweet picture in the cockpit afterwards.
Brian was in a weird, jittery mood leading up to our flight and I couldn’t figure out what had gotten into him! After letting me know that they “deleted his boarding pass,” I figured we wouldn’t be flying on Southwest anytime soon…boy, was I wrong. In a super coordinated effort, Southwest went above and beyond to execute the perfect proposal with the man of my dreams! I got to wear the ultimate peanut crown, sip champagne, and celebrate our day from 30,000+ feet in the sky.
Congratulations to Brian and Sherin on your engagement, we’re so happy to have brought you together and we hope there are many more happy years to come.
