Albert Dance Hall Engagement – Elise & Preston
“The House of FiFi DuBois is the coolest retro lounge in West Texas located in the historic downtown San Angelo. So cool, there is a VIP room that was created out of an vintage airstream. Live music and dancing every weekend. I went with my family to go dancing and Preston went with his friends. Preston asked me to dance….and I said yes. We instantly fell head over heels for each other.We’ve been together ever since. He proposed on my family’s ranch in Mason County the opening weekend of hunting season. He carved marry me in a tree near our blind but far enough away that I could only see it with binoculars. We sat in the blind and waited for the feeder to go off. As we were sitting, he pointed towards the hill and said he saw something over by a tree. I looked through the binoculars and without seeing a thing, I put the binoculars down. He pointed again for me to look closer saying that he was sure there was something over by a tree. So again, I picked up the binoculars and looked for what I was hoping was a big buck. What I saw, was even better. I could see the words “Marry Me?” carved into a tree. It took me a few seconds to gather my emotions and realize this moment was real. He saw me smile and when I turned to look at him, he was holding the ring. We both laughed and cried after he asked me to marry him in that old hunting blind. Best hunting trip ever.Just to add on about the tree….Preston cut down the tree and its current home is in our living room. We took the branches and we are making center pieces out of the wood from that tree for the reception….as a way to spread our love to every table at the wedding and have everyone be a part of it. The tree will even be placed at the ceremony too.”
