#SuccessStory – Brian & Sherin

Last week we reached out to Brian Harrington, beardy entrepreneur, actor, producer and more! This isn’t the first time Brian’s been here on our blog, but this story might be a little more exciting…

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.

A Bristlr Success Story – Jenna & Chad

Did you know that on average Bristlr causes at least one wedding (that we know of) per month? Totally legitimate statistics for you right there!

This month we’re both proud and delighted to announce the engagement of Jenna & Chad! Congratulations!

In a twist on our success stories, Jenna’s best friend Katy approached us with the story. So, surprise Jenna! You’re on Bristlr again!

In fact, it’s thanks to Katy that Jenna found her way on to Bristlr:

I made her Bristlr profile for her as a joke – I made her profile exactly what I thought people with beards would love “oh I love tacos, I love whiskey, I love biking…” and it really attracted these bearded guys!

It’s great when jokes turn in to amazing things, right (remember how Bristlr itself started out as a joke? Oh, the fun we’ve had)?

Although Jenna was skeptical at first, it didn’t take long for Chad to make himself know. A first date was arranged and after, as we’re told, a lot of making out later (well, who can resist a good beard like that?) Jenna and Chad became a happy couple!

Five months down the line in Hawaii, Jenna and Chad became engaged! Though Chad knew he wanted to propose after just two weeks together. The happy couple now share a beautiful home in Chicago and will be married after about a year of being together.

We couldn’t be happier for Jenna and Chad, we wish you all the best in the future. We’re delighted to have heard and shared your heart warming story.

A Bristlr Success Story – Sheyleen & Bill

We’re happy to report that we’ve been having success after success over here at Bristlr!

Our latest success story comes from Sheyleen, who’s met her bristly soulmate on Brisltr. We’re delighted to share their story, as told by Sheyleen:

13262161_10201949946906298_202386171_oI want to shoot my thanks your way, Bristlr! Met my soul mate and soon to be husband on your app last year.

I’m living in Rhode Island and my handsome bearded fella happened to be in Massachusetts. We started talking the day I liked his profile and haven’t gone a day without speaking since.

We’re planning our engagement for October of this year, and getting ready to find a place together by mid summer.

He is the most amazing person I’ve ever met and I’m beyond happy I joined Bristlr.

We wish you both nothing but the best, and congratulations on your engagement!
