Veronica Wins 'Geny's Best Marriage Proposal !'


We want to congratulate Veronica Hampton for her entry in our “Do You Have the Best Marriage Proposal Story Ever?” promotion.

As our winner, she and her husband Steve will receive a gift certificate for $100 for dinner at Jeff Ruby’s in downtown Nashville.

Veronica and Steve were married just last year and Veronica shared the special story of when Steve proposed:


The day started with my now-husband saying, “You should go get your hair done.” So, I go and then once I am done he says, “Why don’t go to the Mac counter to get your make up done? I want us to get some pictures made.” I make it home, get dressed and, of course, we have same color scheme on.

He said, “We’re going to take pics in the gulch.” But, we make one more stop at Off Broadway Shoes and he purchases some really cute heels to go with my summer outfit. (Little did I know this was leading up to our engagement moment.) So, we get to the gulch location and this photographer we both know was there waiting. At this point, I still didn’t know what was going on!

We start taking pictures and I noticed the photographer was playing a song about “marry me” but, I still didn’t know what was going on. I notice my Steve goes over and starts talking to the photographer and I am thinking to myself… what is taking him so long?

So, Steve walks over to me and says, “You know I love you and I know we have been through a lot.” And he got down on one knee and said, “I want to spend rest of my life with you… will you marry me?”

He had planned this for weeks and I had no idea! He made it seem as if we were just doing a photo shoot. It was a day I will never forget!
