Cameron Kelly knew that his girlfriend Angie was the one for him. When it came to popping the question, he turned to Lulu to help him find the words.
When you realized you were ready to propose, why did you decide to create a book on Lulu?
I felt our relationship was unique and deserved an equally unique way to kick it off. Through some random conversations with friends I was slowly learning about the possibility of online publishing and when I learned it might actually be possible to create and publish my own book, I jumped at the idea.
Our relationship had grown through many great memories and I thought a retrospective of how we’ve spent our time together was a great way to exemplify what our relationship meant to me. I wanted Angie to understand how important this step in our relationship was, and by showing the time and effort I put into the proposal (and book) I felt I was able to relate the time, effort and love I’d put into our marriage.
Gooey, lovey-dovey reasons aside, I also thought it would be pretty damn cool (and memorable) and lead to good stories for friends and family for years to come. And so far it has!
How did you present the book to Angie?
