Meet Braeden and Sara, the winners of
our 2016 Ultimate Ranch Weekend
Giveaway. We got the opportunity to sit
down with them and learn more about
their lives together so far.
Our favorite story told was
of the proposal, so of course we asked
if we could share.
“Our friend, Crystal, is a photographer. She’s really creative. Sara had been wanting to get Fall pictures taken and she had been bugging me about it. I hate pictures. After I bought the ring, I went out to eat by myself. As I was sitting there, I thought, “…Crystal!” So I texted her to see if she wanted to help me plan a surprise engagement shoot. She then messaged Sara on Facebook saying she was running a “Fall Special” to which Sara screenshotted the message and sent it to me. I told her, “It must be fate.”
Sara had just finished taking a hard test in nursing school the day of the shoot and didn’t really wanna take pictures. She asked if we could cancel it and I told her no, she was the one who wanted the photo shoot in the first place. I told her, “You better get happy.” We took a few pictures here and there and then Crystal said that she wanted to try a picture she had seen on Pinterest where the man was facing the camera and you could only see the hair of the girl from behind. As we got into the pose, Crystal’s husband, who is also my best friend, said, “Wait, I need to fix Braeden’s sleeve.” As he did, he handed me the ring. She had no idea.”
Congratulations to Braeden and Sara, both for their engagement and the fact they won a FREE wedding!!! Braeden is in the United States National Guard, Sara is taking her state boards for nursing this month, and we can’t imagine a more deserving couple. CONGRATS, guys!
We at the Flying M Ranch would also like to thank EVERYONE who entered for the giveaway. We had over 2,000 entries! Stay tuned because we will be doing more giveaways (both small & large) in the time to come!
