A big thanks to AAC for help with my engagment!!

Post by evo45 » Mon Sep 21, 2009 1:14 pm

I would like to thank everyone at AAC for their help with my engagment! It went great, and she said YES!!! My fiancee had no idea of what was happening or that I was going to ask her to marry me.

I had spoke to Mike Mers early last week and discussed what I wanted to do. Kevin and Cara said they had no problem with me asking during the seminar. At the seminar I met up with Mike and he introduced me to Mike Smith who would be anouncing the seminar, and he took the ring.

We decided to stage a raffle to get Tia up to the front of the stage. When Mike Smith called her number she hopped up and ran up to the stage (which I didnt think she would do, I thought she would make me go up and claim her prize).

After she claimed her prize I was standing behind her and handed her the box with the ring in it! I got on one knee and asked "Will you marry me" and she said "YES."


I would also like to thank AAC for the beer. I was nervous as hell so I had a few beers and that calmed me down alot. I was afraid Tia was going to think something was wrong because I was so nervous.

Thanks again guys, everything about the rest of the seminar and shoot were great, other than the rain. I cant wait for next year although I dont know how I am going to surpass this years shoot.

Too bad the shoot wasn't in Vegas, or you could have gotten everything wrapped up that weekend.

Vegas is a cool idea but I wouldnt have wrapped it all into one. My family would have killed me, or Tia's father!

Thanks guys. It was awesome!!

Well, they've gotta have something to do at SHOT!

OH! Congratulations! That's what happened! I couldn't hear it or see exactly what was happening.

Also, I thought I'd have recognized poacher!

There was someone walking around in a camo jacket pants and hat. I think they had a badge on their belt as well.
